Re: SEO URLs

I don't really understand the movement behind "SEO URLs". may draw users' attention (and clicks) Just searching a forum that uses SEO URLs on Google, the title and the URL were the same, so it doesn't really help at all. A lot of the links on the internet include the title of the page or at least so...

Re: SEO URLs

Just put in mind that potentially confidential information should not be placed in URLs. If a private forum had "SEO URLs" and an external link was given, any users that click that link could leak the URL in a referrer header. Or even worse, if remote avatars were allowed, then any 3rd party sites c...

Re: New Smiles

And what about these smilies? :lol: :oops: :cry: :roll: PNG doesn't support animations (although MNG does, which isn't supported by many browsers, and Mozilla's APNG also does, but other browsers are unlikely to support it). So either PNGs are used for static and GIFs used for animations (which is r...

Re: what is the best chat room to integrate with phpBB?

Perhaps you might get a better response in the MOD Requests forum? :)

Off the top of my head, you may want to try mChat, which seems to be kept fairly up-to-date.

Re: [RFC] Reinventing the ACP

Perhaps something with a little more contrast? That's really my main criticism of the current ACP - too little contrast for my liking.

I do like the concept though... :)

Re: [RFC] AJAX via jQuery / jQuery UI

A lot of visits to forums are from search engines and links on other websites. This would mean that everytime a link is visited the entire AJAX framework would have to be loaded. Maybe it's just me, but that seems unreasonable. I don't think AJAX is a bad thing, but it should only be used sparingly....

Re: Getting Involved?

Maybe a few general ways you could help. :) Helping out on the forums. Of course only answer a question if you know the answer. Creating modifications and styles for the community. These really help people and makes phpBB better. I guess it depends on what you're good at, but here are a few pages th...

Re: URL Rewriting MOD

The old URL you HTTP302 redirect which is a permanent change of URL, so long as only one actualy URL exists and all other URLs to the content redirect with status 302 to the new URL its fine. Using %20 in urls is bad, it would be dashes (-) But that would require another SQL query. IIRC performance...
