Re: PhpBB server load management

I also had the thought that it's kinda too late if this happens on PHP level, because we're almost halfway through, but I was assuming that for example the display_forums() method which is called in index.php is taking quite some time on big boards with a lot of forums. I had another look at the log...

Re: PhpBB server load management

I have to agree that the current load management has.. room for improvements. ;) Since it only provides configuration based on the load value, it's only useful on unix machines which don't have this function disabled. Also, it's pretty inaccurate, thus improvements should be made. I think your ideas...

On password protected forums...

On my quest to (apparently) slim phpBB so it's much easier to maintain (for developers) and handle (for administrators) (as seen here in the ACP UX Improvements topic) , I came across password protected forums. Just as for the ACP UX Improvements I don't want to do anything to any features in a mino...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

Add a search options for settings to the ACP What's your idea of realizing this? In the past I analyzed other BBS software to see how they did it just to realize all they did was providing "tags" per module (which, of course, is much less than all the captions being presented per module). So I came...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

Not strictly always. It has already been discussed that description is wrong here (see this PR). Option should be kept. When is it different? In 99.99% it stays the same. There are, however, cases when you have multiple boards running on subdirectories of the same domain. Cookie prefix solves the p...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

Maximum private message folders - (Is it really necessary to limit this?) I think yes, because otherwise some boards will have more PM than "real" posts, so keep it But maybe there can be an extra explanation: "For the total users limit you need to multiply those parameters" Why would it matter if ...

ACP UX Improvements

In this topic I want to talk about user experience improvements that can be made to the ACP. This will include evaluating the existence of some settings, the introduction of some features and proposing to move some pages around. For this I just went manually through (hopefully) all pages of the ACP ...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

the longest part takes 10:34 mins, that should still trigger the max_execution_time of 600 yesterday (and is absolutely not acceptable) but is way LOWER than the 940 setting i tested before... and that puzzles me a bit. That is indeed a very very long time. Also, this didn't trigger the max_executi...

Re: PHPBB3-14323 / PHPBB3-14332 - Link shortening

@Nicofuma The 3.2.x branch differs from the 3.1.x branch. I think this line change should be reverted but I'm not familiar with the bug it was meant to fix; Reverting it would probably introduce a regression, I guess? https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-13377 https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/blob...

Re: PHPBB3-14323 / PHPBB3-14332 - Link shortening

Well I think of the url tag as an explicit call to the parser that "here really comes a link, so pay attention!". That I wanted to show the link in his whole length. You could also ask why we need a url bbcode anymore then if they have the same behaviour. I don't know, I just like the old behaviour ...
