Could you integrate PostgreSQL full-text patch please?
Please read : viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28707&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=23

This kind of patch is really needed on large forum.
Thanks in advance.

I see last phpBB 3.1.x version for download from 21st January 2008 22:31 (http://area51.phpbb.com/cvs/). Is here any newer version for download?

You should read the announcement of 24th January 2008 on main community board.

What would you guys think about moving the MCP to have it's style separate from the board style as well?

I think that it would save a bit of work for the style authors, and keep things from breaking with different mods and styles that edit the MCP. If you made it look more like the ACP I think it would be fine. Not too many users should have access to it anyways so I do not think it is extremely important to keep the board style along with it.

Otherwise, could you possibly move the mcp and ucp template files to a subfolder off of the template/ folder? I think that would help keep things a bit more organized and make files easier to find.

That is an interesting idea. As a style author, it would be nice to have less files to convert to a new design and having the ucp/mcp in separate folders would help with organization. But, I dont think the MCP should have the same style as the ACP. The ACP is supposed to have a complete separation from the rest of the board including the MCP. So maybe having a new style just for the MCP? I really dont know..

EXreaction, I like your idea. It would make creating and maintaining styles much easier so I definitely support it.

statm1, I disagree with making the ACP and MCP have different styles. Having it unified could be more productive as forum staff wouldn't have to get used to another new interface, and it would make creating and updating it simpler for the phpBB developers because they already have the core, they would just have to switch out the content (which would be a chore in itself but easier than writing a whole new style).

I second that EXreaction, and with the Feature requests open for 3.2 I think you should go for it :D

Yeah we've discussed it a bit, but I doubt we'll change that. We're actually trying to integrate moderation more into the normal forum instead of seperating it even more. So we'd rather like to keep the MCP style fit the forum.
