Re: karma - user or post?

Under the current system, you are rating the post. These post ratings are then used along with some other things (that I don't know) to generate a user's karma.

Re: Cron?

I know early on I saw some talk about including an event system and a cron system. Later on, I saw some reservations about whether the systems would make it in or not. At this point, all we can really do is wait and see. ;)

Re: Just to be sure

I typed this up yesterday, but then area51 went down. And then after it came back up (but while I was away) ChAoS managed to answer the question much more simply. But I'll post it anyway. :p I'd imagine the upgrade process would be more like going from 1.4.x to 2.0.x (at least, how I assume that up...

Re: PHP version question

As far as I know, phpBB 2.2 will require at least PHP 4.1.x. 4.1.0 has been out since December of 2001. I'd avoid any host that is that far behind on upgrades. I can understand weariness for immediate upgrades... but this is over a year and a half old.

Re: View online time span

For most purposes, a default of 5 minutes is much more useful and much more standard. I'm not exactly sure what it means, but I assume (probably incorrectly) that that determines the oldest active session that will appear in the list. If it's set to 0, then it seems the odds of seeing anyone in the...

Re: Support Required...

It IS Pee-Aich-Pee, not fp. It's like mysql. Do you say Miskl or Migh Ess-Queue-El? Obviously, it is Migh Ess-Queue-El. Unfortunately, MySQL is pronounced quite often as "My Sequel". I personally can't fathom this, but I'd imagine it being some historical thing having to do with the early days of S...

Re: Server Load thing?

In at least the current snapshot, it also won't show if you don't have a load limit specified. At least, with my own testing on one server.

Re: Can I donwload phpBB 2.2 beta?

As far as I recall, alpha used to refer to internal testing periods before a public beta test. But with private beta tests and the fact that I'm not in the software industry at this time, it's pretty cloudly for me. Mozilla works on a alpha-beta-RC schedule, where alpha is "destablizing" developmen...

Re: i was wondering...

I've thought about ways to design a fully plugin based forum system, but there are several issues, a lot having to do with templates, that make it hard (for me at least) to think of ways to implement it... especially with performance concerns in mind. Integrating such a system into phpBB would be s...

Re: Release date?

If I whine extra hard, will phpbb2.2 get here faster? :wink: For newbies: there's a 99% chance that that was sarcasm. Whining hard will only delay the release. Avoid whining at all costs. Avoid asking the question at all costs. Let's sum up the results very simply: phpBB 2.2 will be done before the...
