Re: Invision Boards Features Vs phpBB 2.2

One man's bloatware is another's barebones package. In terms of deciding what board to use, comparing feature lists is next to useless. Different people have different requirements and expectations, and I hope to say that'll always be true. That gives me an idea for a "forum selector".. but that wo...

Re: got a problem

I very routinely open .tar.gz with Winzip, so if it fails, it seems more likely that you have a corrupt archive.

Re: 3(?).0.0

You see, phpBB hasn't yet been infected with what we may as well call "AOL Version-Inflation Syndrome." There was a time, a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, when AOL used an almost normal version numbering scheme. That's right. They actually released a *gasp* non-integral version! Se...

Re: phpBB Skin for IB

I believe that the images that come with the vanilla phpBB package are, like the rest of the package, released under the GPL. The SDK, on the other hand, is not. So as long as they're using unmodified images from that package, and not attempting to change the license, I don't think there is a probl...

Re: Question About new 2.2.x

Given Nuttzy's progress on EasyMOD, using it as an add-on will be so simple that it'll seem like core code. :D Plus, with the new permissions system, it'll be unnecessary to keep that "enter a password to access EasyMOD" thing. Of course, this all relies on Nuttzy (or whoever may take it over in th...

Re: File Manager

With that in mind, we can conclude that phpBBFM is phpBB plus a file manager. ;)

Re: Capture a IP in sign up

rofl yeah... note that hashes are one way ONLY... (Unless you have a pc with the powa of a 1000000000 Ghz processor, to de-hash, and I still think it would take a few decades ;-)) A 7-digit number as a password can be dehashed in about 5-10 seconds. Hence why the recommendation is to use a combinat...

Re: karma - user or post?

No, since karma is calculated per user, not per post. So, any limiting system will block all of a user's post. A karma system wouldn't make as much sense per post, as a post doesn't really have a lot of attributes (the ratings and the size, I suppose) to calculate from. It'd reduce to nothing more ...

Re: Text size in "View posts since last visit"&quo

That particular feature is part of the search system, which hasn't yet been worked on. It'll be fixed in due time. Don't worry. ;)
