Re: Security concern regarding CSP and phpBB

I'm not quite sure based on the topic you linked what feature set would qualify as a solution to this problem, so I'm not sure if the following answers any of your questions. That said, I think the best we could do is removing all the inline JS and CSS (which we should do anyway). From that point on...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

The ACP is not unusable because the number of settings available, but because of their organisation (or lack there of). Eg. "Board settings" and "Board preferences" are pretty *beep* names as you don't really know what you would find there. It's both. If you want to toggle a particular feature (say...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

Throwing out options will not result in better UX. I don't think that it is possible to improve UX without completely redesigning the ACP. I think not giving the User a HUUGE load of settings is already an improvement. Also, it can help supporters since there will be less mistakes and when redesign...

Re: Subfolder system for attachments

BC is great, i would probably go for a folder structure by upload date probably or something like that (theoretically this way you can have unlimited number of folders and not "just" 256*256 which sounds a lot, though i'm not convinced that the attachments get distributed equally among them). For th...

Re: Subfolder system for attachments

It is possible to implement it. However, probably you'll need to make two different PRs for 3.2 and master (or just do it for master, and make it an extension for 3.2). I'm not sure if a folder per user is such a good idea but i have nothing against having attachments in multiple subfolders in gener...

Can we agree that phpBB should be conforming to RFC 6265, which dates to April 2011?
And it does. It also does with 2109. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
