Re: PHPBB3-10620 - Quote tag improvement

As far as the parser is concerned, they're all the same. It makes no difference. How does it distinguish between attribute="" and attribute= when I want to input "" as string? post_id= time= user_id= Aren't those names longer than they need to be? It's obvious that IDs are used - but inconsistently...

Re: PHPBB3-10620 - Quote tag improvement

[quote="admin" post_id="583396" time="1433029874" user_id="2"] [quote=admin post_id=583396 time=1433029874 user_id=2] Numbers don't need quotes. But strings do - otherwise I'm the one signing up with the username a post_id= . Make it [quote="admin" post_id=583396 time=1433029874 user_id=2] Also thi...

Re: PHPBB3-13933 - Update tokens' definitions in acp_bbcodes

First of all: how on earth does the string _http://_ (yes - all of that is needed: the protocol, colon, two slashes and enclosing non-word characters) alone trigger make_clickable to partially convert it into a link? That's clearly a bug on whatever version is used right here. A valid URL using any ...

By "main" you mean index? I also think the questionable approach of checking events could be improved vastly.

Re: FAQ page musdie!

As long as pages won't turn up in keyword search results they're pretty much pointless. The FAQ is a good candidate: I can only get the information when I know how to get there, as if this is a library. But it's 2015 and one big benefit of computers is that texts are searchable. I see this so often ...

Re: Moving FAQ to controllers

Every page that is not searchable is quite useless - "normal" people using the keyword search might get what they want if not only posts would be returned as results. Likewise the FAQ is visited rarely. Even the whole ACP suffers from not being searchable, which both affects rookies and experts ( 3....

Re: [RFC] Ability to @mention specific users in posts

something like [mention][/mention][/mention] If phpBB would accept escapings (i.e. to write a BBCode that should not be parsed) all these cases would be covered. Such a username would then be inserted by the board literally as [mention]\[/mention\][/mention] but display as [mention][/mention][/ment...

Re: [RFC] Ability to @mention specific users in posts

4% is too often to me - I was referring to just using @ without alternatives (whereas quotation marks or BBCodes are an alternative).

And this board alone has 2498 usernames with spaces.

And 2 with even more problematic names.

Re: [RFC] Ability to @mention specific users in posts

Just because BBCodes suffer from the same issue it't not a solution. It would just be consistent to be finally able to escape BBCodes aswell. And no, only using @ without alternatives would just fail too often.
