When I was working in training there was a rule - if somebody does not understand something it is not their fault, it is the fault of the one doing the explaining. Perhaps this may be the problem here.

Re: Twig Function Semantic Naming

A good thing to do I think will be to prefix template functions that come from phpBB extensions like ext_vendorname_extensionname_ or just vendorname_extensionname_ That shows immediately "where it comes from" But won't they be within the extension's files anyway so it will be obvious where they co...

Re: Database table names MUST have a prefix.

But if, as some do, have multiple phpBB installs in the same database then you need the prefix to distinguish them. It is probably a carry over from the days when many hosts only allowed one database in an account, unlike today where usually you can have several - if not unlimited. The problem if th...

Since when?

I have never registered for Area51 - just logged in using phpbb.com credentials for the last 15 years (when I am not auto logged in)

I'm trying to set this up on 3.3.0, but it isn't appearing in the ACP. Any suggestions, or is it simply incompatible?

I cannot speak for anyone else but I certainly have read the topic before responding to it it's content - perhaps there is information elsewhere that is relevant but if there is then it was not linked to. Cause I am no...
