Re: [RFC] Remove abbreviations for usability purposes

+1 for the idea, but -1 for the chosen approach. I.e. substituting the acronym " CAPTCHA " with the vague words " spambot countermeasures " will help those who lack the understanding, but it will unnecessarily complicate the act of finding the right spot for advanced users. Also the vB software alre...

Re: Autoselect the textarea to write in

Pressing backspace to go back through pages? lolno, hi google! That's why I got used to ALT+LEFT (and ALT+RIGHT) decades ago, so I'm invincible to this auto-focus crap. ;) Why not having a new user setting? (Although I guess a lot of people will fall off as many are too lazy to browse through all o...

Re: [RFC|Replaced] Auth Plugin Refactoring & User Integratio

BUG: Changing Auth type breaks UCP change email or username (and as a result ticket PHPBB3-10870 ) comes with an additional aspect: if the user changes his username or e-mail-address he needs to type in his password. If a (current) non-DB auth plugin is used there is no chance that a user can do th...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] IP banning to use 'longest prefix matchin

The problem is with PHP Why? Where is there any need to use an Integer in PHP? That's the most important advantage of my approach: the database query is always a string and only the database itself uses Integers. No PHP limitations, no beyond-32bit-requirements for the DBMS. Of course: if you want ...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] IP banning to use 'longest prefix matchin

They should be able to do both. At least boards being used in intranets only might have their reasons to ban ranges which can't be expressed in a subnet mask (or would then be forced to use multiple entries). Not to mention that I expect only a fraction of users to know/handle a CIDR notation.

Re: [RFC|Accepted] IP banning to use 'longest prefix matchin

I discourage storing CIDR notation - that'd be human readable, but comparing IPs would always end up in string operations for the DBMS. Why not implementing a logic where we operate with 4 blocks of 32bit? Advantages are that it can be done with any DBMS plus the most simple indices can be used, res...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Search Backend Refactoring

The MCP could benefit from using any new search core very well: Need mod that can search topics/posts in Mod panel . The basic idea is when having a list of topics/posts in the MCP (to operate on) to be able to filter those just like one can with a quick search when viewing a forum/topic. Main diffe...

Re: MCP Search topic

For me such actions almost always are a consequence of a report - and in that report there is already a URL to the topic(s) (which in that case would be the destination, whereas the reported post already has the source topic). While there are phpBB users out there who're not that bright to recognize...
