There are no versions of phpBB that are currently compatible with PHP 7.3 - you will have to wait for the release of phpBB 3.3

Also you would be better asking your support question on the main phpBB board

Then how do you propose doing anything on your laptop?

Re: Premoderation feature request: Show the newly approved post as a new unread post

The problem with changing the date/time to the approval time is that the post could then be out of sequence and might not make sense in the context of the topic. I do agree though that when a post is approved it should become the first unread post in the topic - there is a similar issue with edited ...

Re: phpBB 3.2.6 FORM_TOKEN on login

To not do so means any style which had implemented login forms "on additional pages" are now broken in phpBB 3.2.6 and later, and can't fix it through changes to the style. That is not necessarily true. The style author can remove the functionality from the style. I don't believe that it is the res...

Re: Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

Whilst all of this "fancy" scrolling is admirable from a technical perspective, and possibly a challenge in development terms, I think that we are loosing sight at who all of this is aimed at - the end user, not developers, not extension/style creators, not board owners but the end user.

Re: library/API

I would suggest that you use the correct terminology as I believe that you are referring to forum not a board.

Board = a number of fora
Forum = a number of topics
Topic = a number of posts

Re: Control panel module system

In any redesign of modules (ACP, MCP, UCP) is any consideration being given to how extensions currently use modules or are virtually all extensions going to have to be re-written?
