Has someone been updating Area51's board software?

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this, so please move if it should be elsewhere. I could swear over the past couple of days the icons and some of the buttons (Save draft/Preview/Submit) have changed appearance. I also think my avatar has disappeared. If I'm correct, on a Win10 desktop, ...

Re: What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

Thanks. I have been giving some thought to appropriate explanation text based on all the replies, plus the knowledge base article and other articles that have been linked into this discussion. WIP.

Re: What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

@CHItA and DavidIQ, if you re-read the first post, I've been focused on the input that the board admin supplies and trying to understand the requirements/standards that apply. Since there is no explanation text associated with the cookie domain field, the board admin is left on their own to input so...

Re: What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

As I said, I'm investigating this simply because it repeatedly and regularly appears in the phpBB support forums as a problem for board admins. At a minimum, I've created [PHPBB3-15151] ACP Cookie settings should contain explanatory text for all fields to assist board admins. For information/compari...

Re: What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

Searching for incorrect cookie in the Support Forums turns up 230 instances (at this point in time), and almost always the solution is to add a dot to the front of the domain name and/or reference to Knowledge Base - Fixing incorrect cookie settings . That's what got me started on this effort. Clear...

Re: What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

Thanks. I was trying to first understand the design specification before I started looking into the code. As I stated in the first paragraph, this seems to be a common source of problems for board admins, and I can find a number of places where the phpBB documentation and/or support discussions don'...

What standard does phpBB follow for setting cookies?

A common topic of discussion on the phpBB.com support forums is making sure the board has proper cookie settings, specifically the requirement for a leading dot for the 'Cookie domain' seems problematic to many board admins. In doing some research, I'm trying to determine which standard is used for ...

Re: PHPBB3-15086 Replace quote.gif with fontawesome icon

Posting this more for completeness than anything else, in case someone stumbles upon it. Still haven't solved why bbcode.html isn't being used, Some clues exist in [PHPBB3-11819] Hardcoded bbcode is duplicated in bbcode.html and [PHPBB3-15145] BBcode.html is ignored by default due to template_bitfie...

Re: PHPBB3-15137 - Global Announcements shouldn't always be never ending

TL;RL Newbie still learning phpBB development process, how to handle merge conflict. The gory details, that are probably old hat to most of you. As I learn more about the phpBB development process, using phpBB Development Documentation as a guide, I continue to also learn some of the nuances. Today ...

PHPBB3-15137 - Global Announcements shouldn't always be never ending

SInce a topic type of Global is essentially a board wide Announcement, is there any reason the poster shouldn't be allowed to specify a non-zero number of days to stick the topic? That would make it consistent with how topic types of Sticky and Announcement work. As it stands now in phpBB 3.2.0 and ...
