Re: Registration Checks

It would just be plain javascript for the password, just to make sure it is entered correctly twice and is the correct length. Unless, that is, we implement some password strength requirements (upper/lower-case letter, number, special character, etc.); in that case it would be easier with AJAX. Wou...

Re: Related topics

The trick however is how to determine whether a topic is "related". That is why I think it should be left for extensions. More people can determine it in another way, they will create more different extensions and end users can choose the one they like. Sure it would probably fit better as an exten...

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

Of the top 5 sites on the Alexa 500, 3 of them - the top three, in fact - rely on JavaScript. Half of the top 10 sites work without javascript so I don't think that this is a conclusive argument. Besides that I don't think that the "top" sites on Alexa are a fair comparison, non of them have actual...

Re: Related topics

I think that a feature like this can be a great addition to the core as long it is build properly.
The trick however is how to determine whether a topic is "related". Simply matching the topic titles won't be sufficient as you'll also have to take content into account.

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

Sure it is navigable, however it is really unacceptable how it looks for something that is officially shipped. https://img.skitch.com/20120623-jwbx86udb3uwhi4phqn37cm8q4.preview.jpg Javascript should only be used to enhance the user experience, I'm -1 on something that doesn't work (properly) withou...

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

Sometimes, we have to move with everyone else. How many times have you seen people complaining that phpBB is years behind everything else? Maybe we should listen to them. That's bullshit argument. Point me to a modern forum software that doesn't work without JS. You might be surprised to find out t...

Re: Thanks for post

It would be nice, but only if its a simple elegant system, not bloated like most mods are. I think XenForo has perfect implementation of this feature: there is only "Like" link below posts, amount of "likes" user has received on user's profile and list of users who liked certain post. That's it. No...

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

Why? Please don't just say stuff like that. 10 years ago, you could have said that without justifying yourself. These days, everyone is carrying around smartphones that all support JavaScript. Since when it became acceptable for software packages to rely on JS for styling? And not just for desktop,...

Re: [RFC] Permissions for Board Statistics

A site like facebook doesn't greet you with a big counter of how many users and posts there are either. facebook and forums are quite far apart, though if we make the comparison if you look at a users facebook page (which is more comparable with a forum, where facebook itself is more something like...

Re: [RFC] Include mobile style

Modern browsers by definition support JavaScript. Not mobile browsers. They are designed to be as efficient as possible to increase battery life for mobile device. JS is disabled by default in some browsers, including Safari for some iOS devices. http://jquerymobile.com/gbs/ jQuery Mobile doesn't w...
