Re: Should we standardize our page titles

Ahem...

I think the point of the way it is now is because the user is more interested in seeing the topic or forum title than the site name in their title bar or favorites.

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.

Re: WEBSITE-1268 update?

The bug report was in the wrong tracker so it's been moved: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/CUSTDB-753 Locking since this has nothing to do with the core product.

Re: Feature Modification

A bit too late for such a change as the extension ecosystem is now in the hundreds, but thanks. The folder structure matters very little if you have an extension installer in the ACP, which is what we are aiming for in the next version.

Re: PHPBB3-13919 - Syntax highlighting in [code]

Ummm what?

Re: Add base controller to avoid boilerplate code
