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...

Re: No vendor directory

phpBB uses GitHub for collaborative development in the open source community. It uses phpbb.com, for obvious reasons, for it's distribution. Extensions can do whatever they want. If you want to be endorsed by phpBB, then they must go through our validation process and they will, like phpBB, be distr...

Re: No vendor directory

phpBB's GitHub repository is intended for development and contribution...not distribution.

Re: [RFC] Refactoring phpbb_version_compare

Umm, look at phpbb_version_compare . It only returns a boolean true/false. It has nothing to do with the messages displayed. Also, no extension can add any language variables if the extension is not enabled. But like I said before, the is_enableable() doing a version check is temporary until 3.2/3.3...

Re: [RFC] Refactoring phpbb_version_compare

phpbb_version_compare should not be changed. It doesn't care what you're comparing. It's just a case-insensitive wrapper for version_compare. And refactoring is_enableable is also not an likely, as it is meant for any possible reason an extension can be allowed to enable or not. It is purposely ambi...

Re: Member managing tool?

"Spambot Countermeasures" in ACP doesn't stop all intruders. I use Q&A CAPTCHA, but some slip through anyway. Nothing will ever stop "all intruders". If it's a human, and they want to join your site to spam you, they're going to join your site. We have plenty of countermeasures for that. - Captchas...

Re: Member managing tool?

In phpBB ACP there's no feature to manage members. Except for the big tab labeled Users & Groups They forget their logins, e-mails, passwords, or all of it. I can't find them in ACP and help when there are problems. Nor can I sort out spam and "invading" members. They forget their e-mails? That isn...
