Re: Plugin/Hook system for 3.2

Your system sounds exactly like the current hooks we have, except the current system has more features... but at the same time a more-line call to call the hook. So, what is the difference here. You would need to add hooks to the core anyway... One huge problem with hooks (and the reason why we do n...

Re: Plugin/Hook system for 3.2

Is an expanded hook system still planned for 3.2? Yes. Also because we are no longer bound to PHP4 then. Would it still use the style currently used or would it be more open to things like having hooks near the $user_cache setup in viewtopic for instance which would allow mod authors to easily add ...

Re: is "fork" a 4-letter word?

ok. here goes: you can look at http://repo.or.cz/w/phpbb.git this repo contains the full history of the main trunk of phpbb (unfortunately not including any of the branches. i might rectify it in the future) the way you work with git is a little different than the way you work with svn: [...] The p...

Re: is "fork" a 4-letter word?

as to copyright: i didn't even think about this issue. presumably, if everything is GPL'ed, there should be no harm if different parts of the project are copyrighted to different people. am i wrong here? You are mixing the license up with the copyright. ;) We do not want a case where a team member ...

Re: is "fork" a 4-letter word?

Funilly enough we are currently in the process of lining up something similar (without the bad word fork obviously), which boils down to having some aspects of what you "proposed" - our current draft for this is having Junior Developers which are basically "selected" people which we know are capable...

Re: is "fork" a 4-letter word?

Currently it's nearly impossible to make a frequently updated phpBB's fork that returns some code upstream, because phpBB uses centralized VCS. It's impossible to copy a branch, do some big changes and return these changes upstream - the patch will be very big, changes not well-documented, and nobo...

Re: phpBB 3.2 Discussion

I don't believe the mod manager should be included in the default distribution. Modding may be the only way to expand phpBB's functionality, but it's by far not for everyone. Including an automated mod manager into the core product is too much like an official "thumbs-up, anyone can and should use ...

Re: Welcome to (long awaited) Hook System!

Oh, and code documentation will of course always be abstract and never be a step-by-step tutorial (else it would be a step-by-step tutorial ;)). The intended audience is not the beginner, but the pro.

Re: Welcome to (long awaited) Hook System!

Well what I want is briefly the following: I have a site and a forum. I now want to include my forum into that side so that it looks like if the forum was displayed there in an iframe, but without using iframes. Therefore I wanted to hook into $template->display($handle, $include_once = true); so t...

Re: Welcome to (long awaited) Hook System!

So, Okay... sorry but this does noting. I made a test site with php what just displays some html but no phpBB3 appears there. Then the path is wrong or something halted the execution... it is working fine. Have a look at the joomla bridge (rokbridge) for example, they use the hooks system too. The ...
