Re: [RFC] Create a new user account through the ACP

Boards where only say "company" employees and clients are allowed to posts. They'd want to disable registration and allow the admin to create accounts for newly "authorized(ie through normal RL memos)" users. +1. I encounter many professional boards where only accepted clients are welcome for suppo...

Re: [RFC] Delete "Confirm e-mail address" from registration

Actually, I think the double-check for emailadresses makes sense. One can easily make a typo when entering an e-mail adress and then the registration fails since most boards require email activation. On submit there is no way back and the user can't register again with the same username.

Re: - Ideas for phpBB 3.2 -

Correct me if I am wrong, BBCode is an easy HTML. If it uses HTML as the backbone, then we have a problem. HTML5 removes the functionality of alignments. You have to use CSS for that. So, making the alignments default when more and more browsers are moving into HTML5 would in theory be a waste. Why...

Re: [RFC] MOD Installer in 3.1

I think 2 things must be considered here: 1. The ability to create and install MODs with file alterations 2. The desire to keep file alterations on a board to a minimum The first will always be possible, with or without an automatic installer. And by leaving AutoMOD out of the default package, peopl...

Re: Anyone running mysql 5.5?

5.091 here. But I think phpBB should test all the basics for 5.5 though, since it's now a stable release. Over the coming year more and more hosts will probably update to 5.5 and end-users will encouter problems.

Re: Submitting patches

Small patches can certainly also be provided in MODX format or MOD format. In fact, some have already been provided in MOD format inline in the ticket description. Ah, ok. I didn't know that, and since it says on the "Get involved"-page that it's not allowed, I didn't look any further actually. The...

Re: Submitting patches

However, creating diffs is really not difficult. Diffs between two trees may be obtained via diff -urN old-path new-path . On a windows machine this could be done via cygwin, and winmerge manual leads me to think it can be done via a gui tool as well. While that's probably true (but while reading, ...

Re: [RFC]Topic System

Although I like the basics of this RFC, there is some stuff here that should be in a plugin rather than in the core, IMHO. My idea about phpBB (and one of the major reasons I prefer it to IPB) is it's light base. Let's look at these: WYSIWYG Editor as well as Rich Text Editor and Preview I think the...
