Re: phpBB Development Fund

Re: tips for phpbb3 modders

No such thing as conflict. For example if you had a silly mod that added a new BBCODE button *yes I know this is already a feature* --- PHPBB3 Core would ask the modules if there were render-bbcode-hooks, your mod would... It would say MYMOD_hook_bbcode_render() { }. Inside the brackets it has acces...

Re: tips for phpbb3 modders

Random thought: Why is PHPBB3 not modular like Drupal? 99% of Drupal modules (I made the stat up but it is close probably) are non intrusive to core files because of the hooks that are in place with drupal core.

The last time I tried to examine it, ajax wasn't very feasible without a lot of modification, but the new template system may make it easier. BTW: Its not ajax unless there is javascript and stuff being asynchronously (ex/...

Re: phpBB2 -> phpBB3 Upgrade Script Discussion

hmm. Is this the same script that has already been developed on the star trek forums... if so I can report success. There was an error with readonly tabs and some "text color" issue but with some very minor editing, it was moved in a matter of approximatly an hour. Good luck, but I'd have to say, it...
