Re: A Couple of things I would like to see if phpbb4

You should be able to change your thread or post colour background based on permissions, thus some groups or users would be able to change their posts background colour, and some wouldn't. You could even set the allowed coloured backgrounds for each group, or set a few coloured background permissio...

Re: A Couple of things I would like to see if phpbb4

The moderation panel right now is unusable, I try to explain my forum moderators (some only dedicate a few hours a week to moderate and are not computer savy) how to move, merge and split threads but they just won't do it, it's too hard to do. It should be as easy as dragging a topic or post to som...

Re: [RFC] Post log/record

At many sites posts table is the largest one already. Making it even larger by storing old post revisions will make just about everything slower and increase db size. A site I used to admin wanted to remove old posts due to perceived performance impact of having so many. I suspect there is going to...

Re: [RFC] Post log/record

Not sure that I agree with logging EVERY single action a user makes. That would dramatically increase database size. I guess maybe having this on som sort of switch would be fine.

Re: User Security

Forgot, Example can be found in the Facebook. My name is not my login and i don't find it confusing at all. :) Using your email address to login would make total sense as you have to provide that information anyways and would remember that. I am all for that and it makes some sense. Having some arb...

Re: User Security

Yes, Firefox is wonderful, and seems to have a lot less critical hack your system flaws than IE....if you are using IE, then I can understand why you feel that security isn't an issue, since you are pretty clueless about how terrible Microsoft is about security holes. That doesn't prove much of any...

Re: User Security

Bottom line is it WILL be a nuisance no matter how much YOU think it will not be. :roll: I hate to break the news to you but not everyone uses FireFox (not sure if Chrome has this) so the feature you mentioned that the username field is filled in automatically will not be available on all browsers a...

Re: User Security

It would be nice if Rhea supported decoupling the logon username from the display name by default, so that you could specify that the username be anything that falls into a specified ruleset, but the display name on the forums is something different....that way someone that gains access to the memb...

Re: rethinking the "New" development changes

having three or more versions being developed simultaneously at one given time doesn't allocate our limited resources as we should. True...but once 3.1.x gets released development for 3.0.x will stop. Once 4.x is released development for 3.1.x will stop so on so forth. From looking at the different...
