Re: Subforum question

It's unsupported, as has been said many many many times before... if you can't work it out by yourself... don't mess with CVS code. Anyone asking for support or providing support for 2.1/2.2 CVS are likely to make developers rather miffed, which further delays this forcoming version version. Yes, I...

Re: How the subforums work

I've read the article I referred to in the previous post, and I've looked at the phpBB code. God I love this new forum/subforum implementation. It uses something called the Modified Preorder Tree Traversal algorithm. You pay a higher insert perfomance penalty, but new forums/subforums will only be c...

Re: How the subforums work

I've only skimmed through the phpBB 2.1 code, but it looks like they're using a tree structure to store and retrieve the forum categories.

This article on SitePoint explains how tree structures work in conjunction with databases.

Re: When 2.2 will be released!?

The bottom line is you should be thankful that the developers work so hard on v2.2, without being paid. What does this show, exactly? It shows that they want to develope this board, simply to be nice and generous to thousands of people around the world. I don't think the vB team can say that...they...

Re: PHPBB vs Invision

No, I've made a universal decision that no one needs longer than five minutes ;) Yes, of course it is. Would the word "unilateral" be more appropriate here in place of "universal?" Sorry, off topic. It's the editor in me. :D Looking back through this thread, I forgot that I had offered to write a M...
