I forgot about extensions ouside of the CDB. However, if Extension IDs are more or less pointless, why have them? :?

However, as I mentioned, you could make them useful for dependency tracking. Of course, you'd have to require every extension to get an ID from phpBB and the IDs would have to be always increasing (so they couldn't be something like VEND123 where they were composed of a vendor name abbreviation and a count within that vendor).

Just a thought.... :)

We don't have Extension IDs, we just have unique extension names?

Dependencies and installing extensions directly from all titania installs from your phpBB install will be a 3.2 feature with the full introduction of composer. This won't happen for 3.1 though.

Ah, I misunderstood what "essentially pointless" meant. i recall seeing an earlier post mentioning them, so I thought that you were telling they just weren't being used.

When you get an error message, such as when trying to enable an extension that won't work, i.e.: "The selected extension is not available for this board, please verify your phpBB and PHP versions are allowed (see the details page).", the message is the green "Information" box. Shouldn't these be in a red "Warning" box instead?
Has an irascible disposition.
