Re: Additional bbcode functionality? (Math formulas; latex m

No, it doesn't (as far as I know, since the devs may choose to add extra bbcode before release) mean there will be any extra bbcode in the new version. What it does mean is that there is a simple way in the ACP (admin control panel) to add new bbcode, by entering the name of the code in one section,...

Re: Admin announcements

phpBB 3.0 will have global announcements, shown at the top of every forum, and in the ucp, surely that's enough to make sure it's seen.

Re: Will phpBB2.2 feature EasyMod, or something similar?

Many mods on the main site here tell you that they are not compatible with certain others, but, if you want to go through each and every mod, checking it for compatibility with others, fine for you, but I doubt many people have that kind of time available to them. I know I don't.

Discussion of preincluded easymod Although it doesn't have anything from the dev's on their views, it does have the views of some of the community.

Re: What banned users see

But, surely the advantage of banning users is the ability to ban their ip. Otherwise they enjoy coming back and trying to torment you even more.

Just putting them all in one group doesn't achieve this.

Re: release date.

No, bright red huge letters is the worst possible thing that could be done. It seems quite obvious to me that most internet users are unable to see the colour red. It's probably something to do with radiation for the screen. Its the only possible reason that I can find that so many people fail to re...

Re: Upgrading CVS to Beta???

The CVS is completely unsupported. No upgrade script will be provided to reach beta. It is officially recommended that you don't use the CVS in a live environment.

Surprisingly they haven't put that in the 2.1.x FAQ.

Re: My web host's phpbb upgrade issue

But if he's on a shared server, even if he upgrades, the server itself would still be at risk.

Re: Dynamic Sig for 2.0.11

If I understand correctly, he wants a sig that displays the stats for his forum in it live. Someone did do this on this board before, using php image drawing functions to draw a picture with post count etc in it, and linked to said image in their sig. It was disscussed on this forum, so, if the sear...
