Re: subsilver2

And of course any template can be adapted to 3.1 after the fact, so even if it's not supported by the phpBB team officially, someone is bound to update it and release it.

Re: [RFC] Post log/record

And systems like git store snapshots instead. The problem you get with storing differences is that you actually have to calculate a particular revision based on all the past revisions and the differences introduced in each one. Simply storing the entire post seems a lot more straight forward. As lo...

Re: Is Area51 connected to phpBB.com?

Here's a wikipedia article on Area 51 . In short, it is the US Military's name for a military base in Nevada. That base is home to a lot of experimental aircraft and weapon systems. Because the actual Area 51 is all about testing and experimenting, and this board is also about testing and experiment...

Re: Spam handling for phpBB 3.1

Oh, I see. I had assumed that "code freeze" meant a freeze on development, and hadn't realized that code freeze and feature freeze were synonymous. :lol: Thanks for the info.

Re: Spam handling for phpBB 3.1

May 31 isn't the code freeze date, it's the feature freeze date. From that day on, no new features will be considered for inclusion in 3.1. But the code won't be frozen, and it's definitely not going to be the release date. :)

This sounds like a great idea. :D

Re: Number formatting

Yeah I had realized the issue of different formats, but didn't realize it would be so difficult to implement. I thought number_format() sort of took care of it. Anyway, I think it would be a good feature if implemented, but of course it's nothing major. :)

Re: Last topic titles

That makes sense, I guess.

I still think it would be better if it was implemented by default in prosilver, but able to be turned on/off via the ACP.

Re: Last topic titles

phpBB also has it build in ;). proSilver and subSilver2 simply don't utilise this feature but the last topic title gets assigned to the template. 'LAST_POST_SUBJECT'        => censor_text($last_post_subject),  In that case, I think that this and any other hidden "built-in" features should have an o...

Re: Number formatting

Well, for instance go to the forum index here on area51. See the "Total redirects: 162737" (or similar)? Instead, it should read "162,737". Or scroll down some and see the Topics/Posts stats per forum, which are in the thousands or even then thousands. Those should also have commas. And in the stati...
