Disabling css is hardcore? I am sorry but if a feature like this doesn't work with css and javascript turned off then it is broken and it needs to be fixed.

Spending hours of our time developing for the 0.00001% who disable CSS is not what we'll ever do. If someone wants phpBB to work without CSS, they can feel free to spend the hours themselves and submit a patch.

@Danielx64

Why do you have CSS turned off? Unless you have a reason for it, then you have no right to complain about it. First tell us the reason for not having CSS turned on and then we can discuss it.

While I don't have a problem with that, it's not just about CSS, right? Having JavaScript disabled would still prevent people from reading Foe posts if I understand this correctly.

If I do, I thought that phpBB wouldn't reduce function for people who have JavaScript turned off, and this seems to reduce function. Maybe you could put a NOSCRIPT tag in there (if that's still supported; it supposedly wasn't supported in XHTML, but I don't know about HTML 5) with a link to display the Foe post that does a page reload.

He did tell you the reason -- "I got javascript and css turned off as it kills it (slow and can lock it up)."

No, the feature works the same way when JS is disabled as it does in 3.0 (doing a page reload). Hiding the content using CSS allows the post to be displayed without having to send an unnecessary AJAX request to the server.

While that may be the case (I have not tested it), it still doesn't solve the css issue. Also what about people use use plain text browsers?

Like Steve said I already told you, I have css and javascript turned off as it slows my phone down and at times lock it up and restart itself. Surely I'm not the only one who has those features disabled right? What about those who use text based browsers that doesn't even support features like css and javascript?

And Steve also make a good point about reduced functionality, this is whats going on here and while I don't expect everything to work 100% without javascript and css, I feel that phpBB is going backward on this one thing.

Yes it is cool that you don't need to reload the page, and I do love it when I'm on a desktop, but when I'm on my phone, it's a different story.

It works 100% the same with JS disabled. And as said previously we will not invest hours in fixing disabled CSS. I think thats out of scope.
There are tones more people that still use IE6, but we will not fix anything additional for them anymore.
