I think that might come sooner than 4.x but don't quote me on that. AutoMOD is as best we can do right now for the 3.0.x branch.

Writing some functions to handle simple AJAX that are cross-browser friendly isn't that hard :P If you get into more complex events and features then adding jQuery would be the way to go of course.

Re: AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

I think my reason for including jQuery here was to maybe have further discussion on what to do with it. For instance it could be a possibility to do some auto-complete in the search fields kind of like what Google does. Or making a post be rendered smoothly as opposed to just displaying it right aft...

Re: AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

You don't need jQuery to do AJAX calls. Likewise you don't need AJAX to perform jQuery functions. You can combine the two and create some "pretty" things on the screen like fade outs or smooth auto-completes, etc. but they're both separate.

Re: MODS -> plugins/add-ons/extensions

In a way, you're still modifying the board in some functional way even if it's not by modifying code.

AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

Well someone had to bring it up... I think one of the bigger/noticeable nuisances of current and previous versions of phpBB is all of the page loads required to do trivial tasks. Using AJAX or jQuery or both together for some of the actions performed on a forum would IMO make phpBB take a big leap f...

Re: [End user][Admin] Translations / styles

so i think it's inferior to paste a link vs. adding an alternative repo, but i admit the difference is not huge, and i could live with either. Hmmm...maybe if we allowed admins to have a list of MOD or Style databases of their own and not just phpbb.com. So for instance they find a repository with ...

Re: [End user][Admin] Translations / styles

maybe this deteriorates into a pointless discussion, but let me address you points: I'm pretty familiar with the license but have no idea what relevancy you think the license has with "at your own risk". (almost?) every phpbb source file contain this line: * @license http://opensource.org/licenses/...

Re: [End user][Admin] Translations / styles

first of all, the "at your own risk" is no different than uploading from phpbb.com. you might want to read phpbb own license some time. I'm pretty familiar with the license but have no idea what relevancy you think the license has with "at your own risk". The point was that MODs on phpbb.com have b...

Re: [End user][Admin] Translations / styles

what you want is to punish anyone who wish to install a style or plugin that *you yourself* didn't approve, and force them to install the style or plugin manually. this is typical attitude for proprietary product that feel the need to keep tight control over their users, but runs against what open ...
