Re: 3 fix_need found

I have an idea to keep down the number of bug reports and support requests like this. When you try to download a CVS snapshot, you have to pass a little 10-question test with obvious answers (like "What is the name of this solar system's star?") in multiple choice. But in that little test, have one ...

Re: Any news?

You can tell the milestone that phpBB is at by looking at the page footer. Powered by phpBB 2.1.2 © 2002, 2003 phpBB Group The last digit is the milestone. For example, in phpBB 2.1.x, x is the milestone. Right now its 2.1.2, and the last digit is 2, so Milestone 2 is completed. When M3 is done, it ...

It doesn't matter, you don't need variable includes in just the forum. I was trying to use them for parts of my own site or custom changes to the forum.

Re: Templating ... a simple guide

Of course, note that phpBB will not support running php in templates for obvious reasons. 2.2 will, as stated in the first post of this topic: PHP A contentious decision has seen the ability to include PHP within the template introduced. This is achieved by enclosing the PHP within relevant tags:

Re: Templating ... a simple guide

I found a way to include variable templates in your templates. But first, run this query on your DB to enable PHP in your templates: INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('tpl_php', '1', 1); That was for MySql of course. Now, all you have to do is use the _tpl_include function like this in your templat...

Re: Question about something in template.php

Just using print_r() prints everything on one line (which on my opinion is hard to read)! Try this: <?php print(nl2br(print_r($_tpldata, true))); // Unset it unset($tpldata_info); ?> If the parentheses are confusing: <?php $tpldata_info = print_r($_tpldata, true); $tpldata_info = nl2br($tpldata_info...

Re: Templating ... a simple guide

I love the new system in 2.2 :D But one question: can you make it possible to use vars in INCLUDEs ( I know it isn't now because I tried) for example: <!-- INCLUDE page_{MYPAGE}.html --> I am integrating phpBB 2.2 (well 2.1 now) into my new site and it will have a block manangement system, and the o...

Re: will schemas remain the same till final?

I am designing my site around it, too. I realize the schemas are constantly changing, but you can rely on some of the things now, like the Users Table and the like. But most of the time you won't be using any phpBB tables anyway, because phpBB's included files handle most of it. For example, the sta...

Re: Modding 2.2

Hard copy? the online manual is much better. For example, if I'm looking through code and I see the function array_pop() being used, I don't need to look in a big fat index. I just go to http://www.php.net/array_pop and boom, I have the writeup on it.
