Re: [RFC] Save, preview, post, etc. failsafe

On FireFox if you click on the back arrow and come back to your posting form by clicking forward you still have the text you have already entered. Any special conditions for that? Because my FF did not do that. Actually firefox has local storage as far as i'm aware, just find a demo with a tutorial...

Re: [RFC] Save, preview, post, etc. failsafe

I agree, this is a client side problem. As far as I know, all browsers except MSIE already implement storage of form data if you use your back button. FireFox did not yet. It should be client-side based on the "html5" local storage. Probably, but phpbb 3.0.x uses xhtml 1.0 . I did not saw any roadm...

Re: [RFC] Save, preview, post, etc. failsafe

I'd really love to see a failsafe way for users to save, preview, and submit messages. CTRL+C before any submit action always works for me(I had an experience with one forum(if I remembered correctly - it was IPB1.2) which always had problems with overloaded MySQL database, so 99% of its users have...

Re: [RFC] Javascript password protection

MicroB, the Maemo browser using Gecko, on my N900 processes a > 20 character password instantaneously. Maemo is Linux(or Linux based, but it does not matter). If device has enough power(and memory) to run Linux(I do not want start distro-holywar, but Debian is not the best choice for embedded solut...

Re: [RFC] Topic based permission system

Despite topic-caster do not specified in details what he wants, but if for its implementation not enough one-two additional fields in topics - it is probably bad idea. If it will use current permission system(i.e. user_permissions field) it will probably blow database size, without any reasonable be...

Re: WYSIWYG editor

I see that some people may not want a WYSIWYG editor, but that person is not the average joe. And I don't see why it shouldn't be an option. Threat me as the worst case and dance around me(really notable rule during software development). You can always switch to a plain editor if you think you are...

Re: WYSIWYG editor

WYSIWYG in phpbb... no, I do not want that. Why? What about custom BBCodes? About different kinds of Spoiler, Hide, Table BBCodes? What about BBCodes that require complex server-side actions? BBCodes are not only text decorators nowadays. To implement WYSIWYG editor means to force all BBCode creator...

Small BBCode syntax extension

Despite http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=33021 I propose small extension to BBCode parser(it is not so cardinal and easier to implement): I propose to add new BBCode syntax token {BBTEXT} . Purpose of this token - to allow custom BBCodes to be nested, when {TEXT} will not allow to ...

Re: [RFC] Javascript password protection

At least not for the average attacker. And what about average user: 1. Will password masters work in such cases? 2. What about JavaScript-disabled browsers? 3. What about CLDC devices? Will they have enough resources to perform encryption? Native browsers of mobile devices, Opera-mini, Fennec, etc ...

Re: [RFC] Javascript password protection

Additional protection through encryption is reliable. But there is one but. Encoder (your code) is delivered to end user through the same channel, by which will be transferred encrypted password(which is completely controlled by attacker in any case). What prevents an attacker to completely replace ...
