Re: Text formatter differences

Re: Text formatter differences

I am actually using the message parser instead of generate text for storage. When I do a var_dump after $message_parser->parse the output looks fine but it somehow gets translated into html characaters when inserted into the database. Using html_entity_decode on $message_parser->message the post is ...

In 3.1.x the extension would post into a designated forum and look like this 319.jpg in 3.2 though it looks like this 32.jpg The issue is that the name, while being generated using get_username_string function isn't being p...

Re: Here is what I think

It is a bit unfair to compare phpBB, a strictly volunteer base of coders, to WP.

Re: Make use of REQUIRED attribute in forms?

Re: Make use of REQUIRED attribute in forms?

As far as I can tell the only browser that doesn't support the attribute is safari? How much work are we talking about? When doing a search on both prosilver and adm styles I got 150 hits for the text, email and password types...many of which are, probably, in the same html file.
