Re: [RFC] Quote image as thumbnail

Is it just me or the forums have very few active members..? Why isnt the area51 staff get involved with posted RFCs here? I would expect at least the Developer and Styles teams to get involved and decide if RFCs are worth attention. Hi, The phpBB team actively visit Area51 and read topics, however,...

Re: [RFC] Documentation System and Requirements

This has to have a few points 1) It must be really easy to contribute documentation (You shouldn't need to have to checkout a git repo locally or have to create JIRA issues or know about git branching or rebasing etc.) 2) It must not make people think "Actually I won't contribute x to phpBB because ...

Re: Template engine changes to allow for structure flexibility

The question is, do we even want multi-inheritance, from my dev perspective I'd say no. If you inherit from a stlye that does something odd, just overwrite it again. There is no need for having 2 inheritance parents. And as for custom structure, just make a good default one? You can structure your ...

Re: Template engine changes to allow for structure flexibility

As previously stated this introduces a really powerful template inheritance system which no other option does give us. Furthermore, breaking BC such a huge amount between 2.0 and 3.0, and 3.0 and 3.1 is no reason that we should (unnessisarily) break BC hugely between 3.1 and 3.2. If anything, we sh...

Re: Template engine changes to allow for structure flexibility

The enhancements to inheritance are demonstrated in https://gist.github.com/michaelcullum/68f8f95bcb4676ea2563 - this means it allows usage of more than one parent (instead we are moving more to a standard dependencies model where you could even have two styles requiring each other) and explicit de...

Re: Is 3.1 being installed in phpbb.com site right now?

Yes, it's a big update. I mean, it's a big board. ;) And yes, I think the website team does the update. I wouldn't know who else. Its a big update. Been a few hours now. Who does these updates. The website team rank members? I would say the core devs would be on standby (or working on it) as well. ...

Re: phpBB.com new design

Actually most our website is completely separate and running on symfony, our community forums run on phpBB. You can even view [or contribute via pull requests] our website source code at https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb-website and we are gradually moving more of our website over to the symfony site;...

Re: phpBB.com new design

The main page content is just another page created in the community forum, which uses prosilver_se. There is nothing they could change about its design, other than arranging the content/text someplace else on the page. Actually most our website is completely separate and running on symfony, our com...
