Re: Getting involved in development

Is 3.3 in its current version already PHP 7.3 compatible, or does that still need some work? Still needs work: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-15828 There might be some other 7.3-related issues as well outside of what was reported there. You'd have to poke around a phpBB forum running on th...

Re: Getting involved in development

We rarely if ever put release dates on versions or features. And when we have we've found them to be more of a moving target. If you are looking for some list of planned changes for 3.3 then filtering tickets in the tracker by the various 3.3 tags should yield some results Then how do you decide 3....

Re: Getting involved in development

- On https://wiki.phpbb.com/Main_Page , there's a section for 3.0 and 3.1, but nothing for 3.2. Where can one find the RFC's that were done in 3.2? https://www.phpbb.com/about/launch/ The RFC approach hasn't been followed much since we released 3.1. Shouldn't this be properly documented then? I rea...

Getting involved in development

Being somewhat disappointed with progress recently, I decided to give it another go in trying to get involved and do some phpbb coding. While checking a few bits though, I've hit some issues which make it a bit difficult to get up and running without further help. - First of all, who decides what go...

Re: [PHP] core.user_activate

David, turns out username is case sensitive. My bad.

Anyway, here's the ticket:

Re: [RFC] profile_update hook

While the reasons for my spamfilter are off-topic here, it's tried and tested. Blocking the update is totally pointless, as spammers often just paste decent text to post while all spam information is in their signatures. We've got numerous of these occurrences, sometimes the post is just a half copy...

Re: [RFC] User activate hook

Tomba Will it work for you adding an event before the if (sizeof($sql_statements)) having $sql_statements, $deactivated, $activated passed to it? I guess that could work as well yes. Rather than updating, it would prevent the actual update, so I'd be ok with that ;) PS: sorry for delay, now checked...

Re: [RFC] profile_update hook

Adding my vote on this one. I have a simple plugin where I check for spamwords in signatures and profile fields when a user tries to update his profile. Changes are allowed, but when spam is detected, my plugin deactivates the account. I think this event would cover that nicely! Note that I also act...

Re: User Self Delete

Agreed that a user should not be able to remove his account and posts entirely himself (or at least that is up to the mod to configure how he wants it to). However, as I mentioned at http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=44973&view=unread#unread , the EU is working on new privacy regula...

The right to be forgotten

In light of recent developments in the European Union that is moving towards a new privacy protection law, I presume many forum owners will one day face the need to comply with these regulations. The law is still being discussed and lobbied, but it looks like that it will be required to remove all d...
