Re: [RFC] New topic button on viewtopic

@drathbun As for "lots of new topics", That really depends on the size of the board. I would expect a board the size of phpBB.com would get a lot more than a board with, say, 1000 members. Absolutely. But as an example, I run a board using phpBB2 still that has the New Topic and Post Reply buttons ...

Re: [RFC] New topic button on viewtopic

This was present in phpBB 2.0, if I recall correctly. Yes, that is correct. The reason this was removed, as I understand it, was that there were a significant number of times when people would accidentally click New Topic instead of Post Reply, when trying to post a reply. This resulted in lots of ...

Re: Index Announcement Feed

I have used a feature similar to what is described on my older board for many years. There isn't enough room on the "blurb box" to print the entire announcement, but allowing a board owner to enter ~150 characters (tweet length) plus a ling to the topic works very well. To be honest, I never liked t...

Re: Fix Post textarea

If a user wants to do it... :-? You can only protect users from themselves to a certain level.

FWIW, I cannot reproduce what you've done in Chrome. It lets me increase the size of the form but I cannot decrease it more than the default size initially provided.

Re: [RFC] blacklist forums in default searches

I've had this for years on my phpBB2 board. :) Each user has three choices for every forum on the board. Do I want to show or hide the forum (which will make the forum visible / not visible on places like the index and jumpbox), do I want to search / non search the forum (note that it is possible to...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Coding Guideline Modifications

What happens if it's the 1st thing in the list that is removed and not the last one or one in the middle? We get to the same story, don't we? Comma on the left is better for adding, comma on the right is better for removing. Removing is far more rare than adding. In my code, the first column in a S...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Coding Guideline Modifications

Whatever. :P Ugly or "too hard to type" aren't objections that override the functional advantages in my opinion. That being said, I won't keep beating the horse. I made the suggestion, feel free to discuss or ignore.

What does that mean? area51 was public years ago, before even the release of phpBB3. But maybe you meant something different... :?

...and is more difficult to type. Really? :P That's your argument? , then CR is harder than CR then ,? It's not a difficult change to get used it. I've written code like this for a long time, it's second nature at this point. But as I already said, I get that it's a style that some folks will like,...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

Who says the extra part of the URL has to be valid to retrieve content? Why can't it be simply decorative? If the topic or post ID value is still a part of the web address, then just ignore the text while doing the database queries. The extra text provides more information to a user, so they can get...
