Re: Authentication, Registration and user integration

So it was the quick reply in phpBB2...for years. What I mean was, to have it as a core function of phpBB supported by the phpBB team, not a third party module. Quick reply is not 3rd-party, however. Including Facebook, OpenID etc. by default would create further privacy problems for end-users. I be...

Re: Prosilver Overhaul/Modernization

I am admin of the WHATWG discussion forums (forums.whatwg.org). The general consensus is that we naturally want to implement a HTML5/CSS3 standards compliant BBS. I would be very interested in testing out the forums with redone HTML5/CSS3 markup for use with the WHATWG community. I am very interest...

Re: [RFC] CSS Image Sprites

the only thing animated is hot topics Ahh, I almost forgot. :oops: I believe I may come up with an alternative to this if there are no objections. I was thinking perhaps having a different colour background for that topic in the topiclist? Although the only problem here is it might confuse moderato...

Re: [RFC] CSS Image Sprites

Another suggestion I would like to make: hanakin has already posted some example PNG files (I'm not sure if these are based off the GIFs provided or the original PSDs) but the PNG spec contains some lossless compression filters (I'm not going into detail here, but here are some details from libpng )...

Re: Content Security Policy (CSP) - security

Yes, but phpBB also uses browser-specific code in the case of Internet Explorer (for attachments and avatars regarding IE's MIME sniffing, I believe). Obviously this header would only be protecting against potential attacks, not attacks that are known at this time. However, quite a large number of p...

Re: Can I throw away my WordPress installation?

A blog front end, to a discussion forum, should be as simple and default as a option to click. Who does not want half a dozen pages telling folks what their site is all about? Me, for one... phpBB is a discussion board, not a blogging platform. In fact, in most situations WordPress doesn't even nee...

Re: New Smiles

PNG is a great idea - however I think PNG should be used for everything except for smilies, because PNG doesn't support animations. If MNG was well supported it would make things so much easier... PNG/MNG supports alpha transparency so this would fix the "white pixel" around edges problem... As for ...

In that case something like this would make sense:

Re: SEO URLs

I still am not convinced that SEO URLs should be a part of the core, though, because: They do not add any usability, except when publishing links with no explanation. It can be added as a MOD/plugin without many/any problems. There are a few different possible implementations. Even the SEO URLs them...
