Re: [RFC] Topic Title Prefixes / Subject Prefixes

Quick question: Wouldnt a tags mod be more usefull than just prefixes? It's almost the same concept. Using tags instead would make the forum way more easier to browse. The prefixes we're talking about here are indeed usefull to phpBB.com but tags could make a huge impact for t he better in other com...

Re: [RFC] Registration & Login Overhaul

phpBB must be able to operate without javascript to provide accessibility to people with disabilities who depend on browsers that don't support javascript at all, or at least not well. The javascript setting in browsers is going to stay for quite a while, and it's really not that funny to ridicule ...

Re: New template variables

I would suggest a new variable in order to know if a post is the first post. I use a mod for that, but if its build in, theme designers would have a lot of fredom styling the first post, wich is usually important.

Re: Removal of imagesets

I like this proposal. Making themes for mobile devices would be easier too, I think.


Now, I have a question. Could another language's css beside English be the default if other languages css fail to load? For example, Spanish being default if Italian fails to load.

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

Read it all, very interesting points. Now, the reason a lot of people (probably developers) are in favor of keeping IDs is because you don't have to worry about duplicates, it's just impossible, everything is unique. If you don't use them then its get kinda complicated, lots of extra fields and prob...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

I agree, although, it would be inconsistent. My take: /F12/forum_name/ Forum ID 12 /F12/T4/P5/forum_name/my_topic/ Topic id 4 I do care about SEO but I also enjoy nice URLs, thats why I would like to use underscores, it's easier to read to the user. I know people use underscore for functions but I d...

He did it that way because most search engines only index the first 25 characters of the url, so its important to give priority to the titles.
