Re: Design Inspiration

Thinking way ahead here - how easy/difficult will it be for extension developers to add additional ones for their extensions, or will it mean taking a step backwards from font awesome and having to create their own?

Re: [RFC][3.3.x] Supported PHP versions

I was not referring to individual boards but the total data collected from all boards which should centrally give an indication of the versions being used and the trend.

Re: [RFC][3.3.x] Supported PHP versions

Out of interest/curiosity - do the stats from phpBB installs show the version of PHP that is used, and if not would it be an idea to add them (if that is possible)

Re: PHPBB3-14518 One click update - proposal for 3.3

That's the point of this though and I'm in favor of dropping support for the diff'ing of files, i.e. auto update package. It will then be the responsibility of the admin to reapply those changes on their own during updating. Since WordPress is being used as an example it doesn't preserve code chang...

Do We Still Need Auto Update?

Ever since time immemorial there have been problems with the Auto Update process in phpBB (I have never managed to get it to work - but that's another story). After the numerous problems over the last week is it not time to re-assess this process? The original idea behind Auto update goes back to ph...

I will even go as far as suggesting that the automatic updater be removed in future versions for going across major versions.
Why stop at major versions - auto update should, in my opinion, have never been in 3.1/3.2

Re: [RFC][3.3.x] Supported PHP versions

If the frameworks that phpBB needs are only going to work with PHP7+ then that is the obvious way to go. As to which version that then becomes another question. At what point does the actual version need to be "set in stone"? I would suggest that you start with 7.0.x now and if it is viable review t...

There is in phpBB 3.2 RC2 small typo in language file acp/extensions.php. On line 46 is:

'EXTENSION_NOT_INSTALLED' => 'The extension %s is not available. PLease check that you have installed it correctly.',

Re: Proposal for packaging phpbb with empty style and extension

Where styles are concerned I have been think along the same lines for a while now. A lot will depend on whether the "new" style will be of the parent/child style configuration that we have now. If it is what I would suggest is having the "parent" style (called say 'default') installed on all boards ...
