Re: Provide better ALT Names on images.

I understand what you are saying. In backend, alt is already happening. /a3 mentioned that adding alt tags to bbcode may break existing bbcodes. I am saying, they don't have to, since the url bbcode already works the way we want the img bbcode to work. Also, in addition to alt tag (your suggestion),...

Rewriting from ground up

Old article, but certainly relevant. Netscape 6.0 is finally going into its first public beta. There never was a version 5.0. The last major release, version 4.0, was released almost three years ago. Three years is an awfully long time in the Internet world. During this time, Netscape sat by, helple...

Re: Can I throw away my WordPress installation?

worldsight, you have made an excellent point. When you get down to the very core of it, blogging and bb software are very similar to say the least. If this were 10 years ago, I would agree with most of what you have said. However, this is 2011, and users are very very demanding in terms of what they...

Re: Provide better ALT Names on images.

Also, I would suggest that the alt text be duplicated into title text as well for tooltips.

Re: Provide better ALT Names on images.

Why can't it be like the url bbcode?

Both

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.phpbb.com/]Visit phpBB![/url]
[url]http://www.phpbb.com/[/url]
are allowed.

Can't the same be done for img without breaking anything?

"Official" integration with Akismet

Akismet seems to be doing a decent job of fighting spam, and we should use all the tools in our toolkit to minimize/control this problem.

PRUNE USERS - enhancements

Prune users is a great function for fighting spam. It needs a little enhancement, though. 1. At the moment, to prune, you can search users by: - username - email - join date - last active date - number of posts This is clearly inadequate. In addition to the above, admin should be able to search user...
