To solve the argument... ?

After skimming this post, the initial argument started over assign_var_from_handle() - the point Ptirhiik_ was trying to make seemed to me to be about the performance issue of using ob_start(), ob_get_contents(), etc. - this is a valid point, although marginal, as assign_var_from_handle compiled the...

Re: New karma post...

Yes, load intensity can get higher, especially if you're looking at post karma, and then you've got database load and size. A suggestion would be to have both options available as parts of the same system (like the weighting with the option of enabling/disabling different components) but then the lo...

Re: The style [ template, theme, imageset ] topic

ok, I'm giving another 2c (making it 4c) but what the hey :) the SIG thing could be easily resolved with a {POST_TEXT} and {POST_SIG} field. that way, put whatever you want between them (wasn't this around in 2.0.x?) In fact, have a look at CVS. {postrow.SIGNATURE} is seperate. secondly, another fea...

Re: Suggestion to make phpBB easier?

It's possible, but again you should be able to set up phpBB with the already implemented instructions. upload into a folder, chmod the config.php etc, and go to 'mywebsite.com/myphpBBfolder/install/install.php'.

Re: Subforum question

OK, well, it doesn't, but that's the main forum-parent getting function... the actual make_jumpbox() function is: function make_jumpbox($action, $forum_id = false, $select_all = false) { global $auth, $template, $user, $db, $phpEx, $SID; $boxstring = ''; $sql = 'SELECT forum_id, forum_name, parent_...

Re: Subforum question
