Re: Will phpBB3 have MODs?

Again, not necessarily. You must overcome your anti-MODs attitude simply because they alter the core code. The better-coded MODs are the ones that don't change the core code entirely (like Categories Hierarchy) but act more modular-like. The ones that do change the core code a lot are bad. Sorry if...

Re: Will phpBB3 have MODs?

Exactly, this is why all mods are evil. Even when 3.0.x is releaesed, there is no way to ensure that mods made for it will be compatible with 3.2.x, and when mods are made for 3.2.x there is no way to gurantee they will be compatible with 3.4.x... etc. That's just a consequence of MOD ifications be...

Re: Microsoft Is Expanding Their Anti-Piracy Program

That's interesting about the EULA. I haven't once seen it pop up a new EULA for me to read and accept. Honestly, I haven't read the EULA, I just remember reading from another news site that the current EULA does not include anything regarding WGA in the effect that they will be using it. Either way...

Bertie arrived today. :mrgreen: I only got to take two pictures before Bertie started hiding... 8-O http://www.mhobbit.net/files/images/bertie/bertie_box1_thumbnail.png Seems that he broke out of his box as soon as I had my back turned. Mischievous Bertie. :-P Ah, seems like he found what he was loo...

The developers have said, yes. :-) An upgrade path will be provided for vanilla phpBB2 installs.

Just the look of Bertie should win them over. ^_^

Or, you could use Bertie with the --enable-hypnosis option. :mrgreen:

Re: phpBB 3.x.x and register_global ...

I can see two comprimises for the situation. One would be to turn off register_globals in the .htaccess file in the phpbb root. Someone noted that gave them an error, but still, this is more likely to work than trying to get your hosting company to turn it off all together(and they would even be mo...

Re: Will phpBB3 have MODs?

Olympus will be released when it's ready to be. ;-) Regarding guidelines for MODs to have to be as compatible with each other-- that is indeed impossible. MODs are code modifications, and as such, when you have so many modifications done to a clean, vanilla install, the code to modify for one MOD ma...
