[PHPBB3-14775] Enable Media Embedding in posts (via s9e TextFormatter)

Now that we use s9e Text Formatter, I think it would be good to enable the use of its Media Embed plugin: http://s9etextformatter.readthedocs.io/Plugins/MediaEmbed/Synopsis/ At this point I think it's safe to say the ability to post embedded video or adio content is no longer something we can consid...

Re: Retina-friendly

Rebecka is correct. Retina screens are 2x the resolution they display at... A 4k screen's native resolution is approx 4000 pixels wide, but that makes evrything microscopic, so they scale it up 2x, for a resolution in normal ranges like 1920x1080, or 2560x1200. For images that means on "retina" they...

Re: A different take on phpBB for 2016 (style)

You should release that as a Style for phpBB. Obviously it's not right for phpBB's base/default style, but it is a well made style that a lot of people would like to be able to use, if it's right for their type of board.

Re: New Style for phpBB 3.3 ?

Does that mean we have to learn a bit of SASS and compile everytime we edit something in this theme? That doesn't sound good to me. In a development environment, SASS would be compiled at runtime in the browser. For distribution, SASS would be pre-compiled so a normal CSS file can be distributed. I...

Re: [3.3.x][Feature] Topic description

I'm of the school of thought where, if you feel you need to write a topic description, you're topic title must not be very good.

Re: Extension compatibility 3.1 - 3.2

Avatar drivers 3.2 need a - '@upload_imagesize' in their config file as this isn't required in 3.1. I was hoping for an answer about rmcgirr83 question earlier. If you want to write clean concise code, then in some cases where phpBB 3.2 has changes that break backwards compatibility, you will just ...

Re: Extension compatibility 3.1 - 3.2

Actually, having managed about 20 plus extensions, I can say that David is right. The only extensions I have experienced that required updating to work with phpBB 3.2 due to backwards incompatibility were 3...2 of which were using notifications and the other was affected by font awesome's changes to...

Re: Extension compatibility 3.1 - 3.2

The same type of ifelse conditional could be done whithin configuration files. See an example here: https://github.com/VSEphpbb/phpbb-ext-skeleton/blob/notifications/skeleton/config/services.yml.twig That's not correct. The file you linked to is treated as a template file. You can not do PHP or tem...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

Of course for proper extension development, none of this is an issue because you should really be doing your extension (or core) developing within a clone of the phpBB repository...not some arbitrary release version. I am not sure that I would agree with that in respect of extensions (apart from th...

Re: phpBB 3.2.0-b2 released

The RC, A, B releases should all still be production (and NOT include development). As mentioned before, development should only be used by developers (of the core or extensions) who know what they are doing and can get it from GitHub. Of course for proper extension development, none of this is an i...
