Re: Extensionalize phpBB

I can see the logic to some extent but I think where it falls down is that you are suggesting that these new "official" extensions are packaged with the core so that would mean that the core product would become "bloated". By using extensions then you would be increasing the number of files in the p...

Yes, but what about if an user doesn't want at all to have an avatar (especially a forced one of any sort)?
My logic tells me an user option should be introduced for this case(s).
99% of users will probably not be bothered one way or the other and for the other 1% just tell that is how it is.

Re: Avatars

To be honest it is not something that I could get excited about - unless someone was proposing removing them, which I believe is not the case. Whilst there are probably some boards that do not use/allow avatars I would guess that they are in the minority and in those cases I cannot see a "default" a...

Redirects

Isn't it about time that, for me anyway, the annoying "automatic" redirects were removed - or at the very least are made as a user option. When I have completed an action I want to decide where to go next, not be taken to somewhere that I don't want to go and then have to backtrack. When the redirec...

Green Dots

What do the "green dots" after a member's name signify here on area 51?

As there is one after my name I am guessing it means "troublemaker" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Do We Still Need Auto Update?

I would still contend that the basic tenet of phpBB from 3.1 onwards is that core files are not changed therefore there is no need for patch files. Whilst patch files/auto-update are being "officially" supported then there is a perception that it is OK to change core files. This really is an issue f...

Re: Extensions load order

As I understand from several topics where this has been discussed in the past this it is not possible with the current phpBB versions to specify the load order of template events. I also believe that it may be possible once all styles move over to Twig where there are some additional features that c...
