Re: Extensionalize phpBB

I'll quote this for emphasis as this will be our current official position on this idea and the responses/breakdown that have attempted to address these concerns have fallen quite short of that: The very idea of this makes everything many orders of maginitude harder to maintain, as far as updates, c...

Re: New contacts (Telegram), Customize contacts from ACP idea.

I checked a 3.1 and a 3.2 board and there was the option to set the custom profile field as a contact field and this without any extension at all so you need to check your custom profile field settings as you probably have it as just a profile field and not a contact field. (I'm sure Marco's Extensi...

Re: New contacts (Telegram), Customize contacts from ACP idea.

Never ever heard of Telegram, not sure that we need to add that or any other contact type. There's tons of them... Also custom profile fields have been possible since 3.0 and you can set them up as contact fields.

Re: Extensionalize phpBB

I've brought this idea up myself before and, on the surface, it makes sense as then individual features can be updated and maintained separately, but would likely take several major versions to actually do something like this. But then the elephant in the room came up on its own through the later-fo...

Re: Avatars

just make sure that there are suitable events so that somebody can make an extension to remove them. The whole point is that there already is an option in the core to turn them off so there shouldn't be a need to ignore that setting nor a need to have an extension. IMO if the style is properly writ...

Re: Avatars

I am not sure why you would ever not want this, what is the down side? It's not about what you or I think. It's about the fact we have the ability to disable the feature, what Marco said. While you might think it's something one wouldn't do and is a thing of the past to even consider, it is probabl...

Re: Avatars

More often than not you want to display an avatar in a theme regardless of if they have one as not having one adds layout complications to a theme. Not to mention that avatars are more of a standard practice in most components on the web Can't assume avatars are always present since the feature can...
