Re: AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

As for user confirmation, recently usability experts suggest its actually better to execute user commands immediately, but allow users to undo their actions . Confirmations have become something that people will almost automatically just confirm, and may still end up regretting their action. Of cou...

Re: MODS -> plugins/add-ons/extensions

So is mod an unacceptable term already? I don't see any valid reason why Mods isn't a good term. Like I said, naming is for two things: (1) comprehensiveness and (2) correspond to phpBB4's vision Unless you really want to separate two things: editing and plain HOOK (with no editing involve at all) T...

Re: MODS -> plugins/add-ons/extensions

Is this a trivial thing? Both Yes and NO. I mean just let's agree on 2 things. 1. We DO need to have one name for a particular category. 2. This name should correspond to the vision of phpBB 4.0 Do we have an agreement with the architecture of phpBB 4 yet? Somehow yes, both lightweight but powerful ...

Re: AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

The only place where ajax and jquery or heavy javascript actions - is where users do not want to reload or to be redirect to another page or the same page (for update)

Re: Philosophical question to phpBB developers

I am not a phpBB developer (they are great programmers!) With Wordpress, I think they are now moving toward expanding its core features, which I am very disappointed. I'd like to compare Python to C++ :lol: Although Python 3.0 has a lot of changes, which users are having a lot of problem to re-write...

Re: [Usability] Instant action redirection / Flash messages

I would rather to do it instant flashing - use ajax as much as possible - to redirect and to reload every page we confirm is unnecessary and sometime when Internet access is slow, it's better to save the time.

I also propose the style on the other post you mentioned. What do you think?

Re: headers already sent + other error messages

What I'd like to see is links presented for solutions to error messages. I think you are referring to those Help files. I think it would be nice, espeically link to a wiki (but I hate connecting to Internet, well hahah). :lol: Huh? LOL You said you want to see links to error message - just like tho...

Re: [Usability] Reducement of confirmation pages / Allow undo

Current situation One of phpBB2/3's annoyances is constant reloading of pages and the confirmation of every possible action . This includes topic moderation, user management, board management and many other features. It is understandable that there should be a step before deleting a post or a messa...

Re: Wysiwyg TinyMCE implementation

I think we are better off writing our own one. TinyMCE and most rich-text editors are terrible. Have you guys ever look at the editor in Discuz! forum software? That one is pretty fine - not the best but surely good enough for users. such a statement is worth exactly as much as the editor *you your...
