Re: [4.0.x] Chameleon: no more first unread post links

because I do not like how we are currently handling it ... What I am against is adding more clutter where its not required. We have all the elements we need. Thanks, so this is not a team decision but only yours. As you can see from the replies the link is far from "not required" - please don't for...

[4.0.x] Chameleon: no more first unread post links

As it stands now there is no plan to link to anything other than the first and last post as those are the only links that make sense semantically to link to! Why is the link to the first unread post about to disappear? Am I in a minority actually using this, i.e. as per egosearch to then quickly se...

Re: [NEW THEME] 4. JS frameworks & approach

I think he was talking about a REST API here, which would support having AJAX functionality where it makes sense. AJAX is also only requesting resources - the output of a PHP document can be anything: HTML and JSON - one could even switch template files for this as it is already an abstraction laye...

Re: [NEW THEME] 4. JS frameworks & approach

It takes one line today in all modern browsers: fetch(url).then(function (data) { /* … */ }, function (error) { /* maybe retry */ }) Double standards - likewise the 8 year old code could omit linebreaks as well and easily be merged into 1 line. I see your argument, but anonymous functions or not - ...

Re: ACP UX Improvements

Add a search options for settings to the ACP What's your idea of realizing this? In the past I analyzed other BBS software to see how they did it just to realize all they did was providing "tags" per module (which, of course, is much less than all the captions being presented per module). So I came...

Re: easy-to-read numbers

In german, we put a dot No, in German y only. In Switzerland it comes to 1'000'000 (which in my opinion avoids many problems in contrast to commas). the recommend unicode "thin space" should be used No matter which delimiter is used: when you're about to copy it to the clipboard the outcome is alwa...

Re: Security concern regarding CSP and phpBB

Isn't the concept of CSP to yield/alert anytime when accesses happen that aren't known to you? Whatever you missed will now get your attention - the more exceptions you make, the less sense it makes to use CSP to begin with. I set this up to a maintained 3.0 installation including inline scripts and...

Re: Should Usernames include emoji?

quite a few fields that will clunk out if you put an emoji in them Why is this still an issue? Years ago I started using UTF8MB4 instead of UTF8 in MySQL5/MariaDB10 and migrated all potential text columns, and have not run into any issues so far. After all it's not about supporting Emojis, it's abo...

Re: [NEW THEME] 4. JS frameworks & approach

Yes, disabling JS nowadays doesn't bother most people. But then again virtually nobody is interested in privacy as well. And extensions like uMatrix cannot fully protect you from that either - in the end you cannot trust JS at all, because it is always able to post load anything and transfer anythin...
