Re: Template and style development interface

ok, so it's not TPL. Roberdin, you must be the kind of person that notices the ding on your passanger side instantly when coming out to the parking lot. Never mind the Mac truck speeding your way, loaded with gravel, no breaks and honking madly! That nasty ding on the door... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:...

Re: Template and style development interface

Although doing it through Flash would be quite... flashy... it would cause some problems in some slow lines, browsers, etc. etc. I am sure it could be done with the combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. With those three, as suggested a preview pane can be seen. The idea is the everything is alre...

Template and style development interface

The current style interface is functional, but minimalistic. The template system has no interface to it, other then diving into the code itself. I looked at the code of templates, and it seems there should be little trouble developing an add-on piece (be it a "MOD" or otherwise), which would allow t...

Re: LDAP integration discussion

Some of you suggested a mixed LDAP/phpBB registration. This goes directly against the idea of LDAP. Why have a centralized DB with user accounts if you allow someone to create new accounts which potentially circumvents LDAP? Either one or the other, but not both should be used. Security in large sca...

Re: Too... many... smilies!!

I just noticed it, but if you use Mozilla browser you can drag the Emoticons' underlying link into the text message box! That is - mouse over the emoticon on the left, then left click-and-hold, then drag the selected emoticon into the message area where you are editing the text. Now you do not get ...

Re: Fork phpBB

I think I'd rather the main developers concentrated on the core product. I was not thinking the phpBB core team get involved with conversion tool development. The only thing we would need from them is the basic data layout, and potential directions in the future for the same. we do have people work...

Fork phpBB

Ok, not really. But how about a conversion team? As in, a group of devs that write nothing but various other forum conversion solutions? On thing lacks in ALL discussion software is extensive conversion tools. Conversion tools are a gateway drug to phpBB. I understand we have a generic engine, but ...
