PHPBB-15151 - ACP Cookie settings should contain explanatory text for all fields

Some background discussion is here . Here is my first pass at the explanatory text. I've added to the introduction section in a manner consistent with the ACP->Spambot countermeasures introduction section, i.e. If you have problems with users staying logging in to your board, visit the phpBB.com Kno...

Re: [Redesign] User Online Banner

What is the suppose of this question? Do you suggest to remove the online image or don't spend time on a thing, you think nobody cares anyway? I believe that not having the online/offline image (or any other indicator) is an option that should be considered. To some extent it is meaningless as it d...

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...
