Re: [RFC & Patch] Coding Guidelines

There is one reason in particular why always wrapping code in curly braces is a good idea: You will never accidentally add an unconditional statement that was meant to be conditional, because you need to add braces once you want to add a second statement inside the if. And as for the other part of ...

Re: [RFC & Patch] Coding Guidelines

The tabs versus spaces argument may be an eternal religious war. I’m not sure if it’s possible to come to an absolute agreement since most of the developers that I know are either adamantly opposed to spaces, or adamantly opposed to tabs. (Although most developers I know use/prefer tabs to spaces). ...

Re: Authentication, Registration and user integration

As the popularity of social networking sites continues to rise, I agree that it is extremely important to create a plug-and-play authentication system that allows developers to create authentication plugins for sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and others. This kind of system should be ...

Re: new topic creation

Great idea! It has been a highly requested feature in my experience, there are many sites out there that just end up posting e-mail threaded discussions. DAWMac is a large music community that comes to mind. Many popular systems are incorporating some kind of e-mail input. Facebook and Flickr are a ...

Re: How to use this forum

I find that having the $Id$ can cause a lot of conflicts with updates, so I will be happy to see it go as well. It’s nice to have with SVN, but with Git it won’t be needed or used, and phpBB4 is moving to Git.

Re: How to use this forum

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

That was a very confusing reply, Chris. :| Was my password compromised? Short answer: Highly unlikely, but change it anyway. Was that using the MD5 encryption, or the more secure one? Based on your last login time, the more secure hash. When did phpbb.com start using the better encryption? When phpB...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

ounce of prevention. pound of cure. The thing is you're right you shouldn't have to, I shouldn't have to look both ways before crossing a road either, but I know if I don't their is a chance for an accident. It's just sad that it took someone stealing 100 of 1000's of user e-mails for the epiphany....
