Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST) within one country

Well, a decently accurate system of DST could be created with the following as server and user settings: Time Zone: xx GMT Daylight Savings: Year-round Northern Hemisphere Southern Hemisphere No DST And the proper code to handle DST, using mktime to see if a post was made during DST for this user. O...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

Considering the fact someone ported it to Nuke before, someone will do it again. There aren't even that many changes to make. Due to the way the phpBB team has coded it, it becomes a very simple task. You only have to change a few things, such as the *_TABLE constants and $phpbb_root_dir.

Re: Speeding up phpBB development

This does NOT speed up the development. Why do you think the MOD validation process at phpBB takes so long? The same would happen when users submit work for 2.2. The developers are doing an excellent job. They will take their time as needed. There is no rush to get 2.2 out, as 2.0.x is still an exce...

2.2 Search Engine

Well, I have been taking a look at the search engine, and I find one very important detail missing. The topic folder icon. Normally, I use the "View your posts" search to see if anyone has made a reply to a topic I have posted in. Without the folder icon, it becomes highly difficult to see whether o...

Re: The 2.2 styling system ... feedback

Just remember that phpBB is a forum package. It is not a CMS system, which is why I highly doubt a portal to be built directly into it. In the future (not the near-future), they will probably get to work on their phpBB portal system and have it work with phpBB completely, it just most likely won't c...

Re: Paul, I love you

Some people still don't have a clue. They still post to ask "when will 2.2 be out?".

Ugh, ignore what I said above about the language errors. I need to learn to search.

Re: Quote option like IPB2.0.0 (proposal from a phpBBuser \-

Wow we i didn't know this one, lol nice. A " did you Know " section two month after release will bring more joy to those that didn't know. :P :P Oh, damn. That's actually a good idea. A "Did you know?" thing would be pretty neat for phpBB, especially for new users. As for the quoting problems. That...

Re: Password hashing function

I haven't heard about a phpBB board getting hacked via cookies. Not something that happens often, you know. Most hacks are done by SQL injection, since it's the simplest way once you find a hole. I highly doubt MD5 will be an issue. The easiest way to secure phpBB is with 2 things, IMO: 1. You have ...

Re: Access database support.

The current MOD is just a MOD. phpBB has always stated that everything must use the DBAL system in order to make sure it's compatible with all DB systems. So I'm pretty sure it will be supported.
