Re: Passworded Forums Phpbb4

Having an extension feels like a step away from abandonment, which may happen when an extension like this is not important as others and when there's too many extensions to maintain. Really just a Strawman's argument that gets restated every time a feature is suggested and gets pushed off to an ext...

Re: Shoutbox Creation

https://www.phpbb.com/community/ideas is the proper place to suggest features. Personally I think it is better as an extension and not something that is vital for a forum.

Re: Database table names MUST have a prefix.

Having separate databases for everything is not always possible so making assumptions about what a user can and cannot do with the plan they've purchased for their site, especially in the case of shared hosting, is not something we should do. There are other reasons too. What if I wanted to create a...

Re: Database table names MUST have a prefix.

Besides what David said there is the problem of other systems living in the same database, like WordPress and Drupal. If there were no table prefixes then you'd have a big problem. Think of the users and posts table for instance which can be in WP as well.

Re: Contributing: You can do it too!

Personally SmartGit has served me well for several years now when working with Github. Easy to use and understand. At work it's just command line git stuff since it's all done through an on-prem GitLab instance, but we do have posh-git installed on all machines to help with visualizing some of the g...

Re: Allow Aria Engine for MySQL Fulltext Indexing

I don't see why not. It might just work by simply changing the check for that error and excluding Aria. Just make a ticket for it in the tracker and if you've experimented with getting it working add some details there.

Re: phpbb and mobile friendly errors

I see some warnings, no errors and those warnings are more about the tool you just posted not being able to work properly. In fact the page reports the following:

What console errors are you seeing?

Re: [4.0.x] Chameleon: no more first unread post links

Sorry to say this so bluntly, but if the link to the first unread post is removed I won't be updating to 4.0. (Or upgrading or whatever.) This was already clarified, but I'll try to make it clearer. Currently we show this icon to go to the first unread: first-unread-icon.png Both this icon AND the ...
