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'...

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...

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 ...

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

any/everyone is responsible for the changes... best way I have found to test them is in your browser change the class on the body from ltr to rtl, then on the html element change the dir to rtl as well. you will have to manually add the bidi.css file to your header... Otherwise if you can then inst...

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

I sure have learned a lot from this initial effort to contribute to phpBB and the comments/reviews that I've been given on the pull request have been very educational. Thanks to hanakin and vinny for sharing their knowledge, it has been much appreciated. However, as a newcomer, I've struggled to und...
