Re: [RFC] Password hashing in own class

It's too similar because password checking (and hence hashing) should become a part of the authentication plugin anyway. Currently it's hardcoded to the phpBB core and custom auth plugins can't reach/realize everything they should. In a perfect world all of the default authentication stuff resides i...

The add-on Textarea resizer for Opera works even better and on every site. Works on a JS base flawlessly on all TEXTAREA, IMG, INPUT, SELECT, IFRAME, VIDEO, CANVAS and OBJECT elements, not just on one specific, for over 18 months already.

Re: [RFC] Password hashing in own class

+1 for the idea.
-1 for the RFC in general.

Too similar to [RFC] Auth Plugin Refactoring & User Integration.

Re: [RFC] Revamp Send Statistics

Just opened ticket 11080 before seeing this topic - the browser version detection is not the best. Although I'm not sure how the user agent of the submitting member should help anything in the statistics... When having the option to preview all data before submitting it: add checkboxes, so the user ...

Re: [RFC] Avoiding Confusion in Who Is Online

+1 for the RFC in general. However, a possible solution is not trivial. Currently the currently visited page is "recognized" upon initializing the session. But permissions are checked much later - which is because it can be quite complex. But that's the reason why there is this misinformation of on ...

Re: [RFC] Legal Settings Page

That's not robust enough at all: once the DBMS is out of order the site owner is doomed . Creating a cache to rely on (which should never expire) is better, but for me it still wouldn't be robust enough. If phpBB wants to be as robust/smart as now, it should render a full HTML site out of the ACP d...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

new column in DB and few lines in viewtopic.php I think most coders think and act like that. But what about performance? Looking up a text means more stress to the DBMS than looking up an integer. Also those mod_rewrite solutions suffer from Apache eating more CPU cycles. I'd really like to see how...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs -- A Simple Proposal

call the search engine for those words "Humans" might enter URLs with literals as topic identification now and then, which might be filed under "okay". But what about crawlers? I smell a search flood there, not to speak of performance issues. It's a nice idea, but I discourage everyone from associa...

Re: [RFC] Remove abbreviations for usability purposes

+1 for the idea, but -1 for the chosen approach. I.e. substituting the acronym " CAPTCHA " with the vague words " spambot countermeasures " will help those who lack the understanding, but it will unnecessarily complicate the act of finding the right spot for advanced users. Also the vB software alre...
