Re: Changing folder name after install

phpBB3 is able to detect changes in the path name and adjust itself accordingly (unlike phpBB2, where all hell broke loose if you were to try that little trick). I'm assuming that the path in the ACP that you're referring to is the one on the server settings page. It only gets used if you choose to ...

I'd attend if I was in the area... but Durban is a bit far away. :P

Re: So where do we post feature requests exactly?

It's probably not there because the Powers That Be deemed it unnecessary.

If you think about it, why would you want to display it? It's only relevant for inter-table relationships in the database. :P

Re: Convert phpbb3 to phpbb2

Short answer: you can't.

Long answer: there isn't a converter that does this. It doesn't make much sense to go from phpBB 3 to phpBB 2* anyway, so I doubt you'll ever see one.

* In Microsoft's case, it's the inverse - I consider going from Vista to XP an upgrade.

Re: Suspecting GOLD Very Soon...

iiuc, the idea behind an RC (="release candidate") is that if no major issue is discovered, the version will become gold. True, but I've only seen one project out of the 7 or so that I know well that actually does this. Besides, as you mentioned, phpBB tends not to be that strict. Then again, who k...

Re: Bug is less,

Bug count seems to be wildly fluctuating in both directions at the moment - it was down to ~60 a day or so ago when I checked last, and now I notice it's back up to 80... Also, I didn't notice anything marked as "fix in progress", and CVS has been rather quiet lately (although I follow the CVS progr...

Re: Understanding database struct (phpbb2 to phpbb3)

Without taking a more detailed look at the database structure, I would have a guess and say that those are the tables for the custom profile fields. If my guess is correct, it would explain why the tables are empty on installation, as there are no custom profile fields created during installation (o...

Re: Suspecting GOLD Very Soon...

You can, however, use the automatic updater to go 1->2->3. I'm sure that the RC1 to RC2 file is still on Sourceforge somewhere. Unfortunately not. The automatic updater just tells you that 2 isn't the latest version and won't do anything. Oh. Guess you learn something new every day... :D As an afte...
