Re: New feature - auto follow up of posts

an XMPP message That's what was formerly called Jabber - phpBB can contact you in two ways, see Notification method in your UCP . It's about efficiency It's also about spam. phpBB 's design is thought to generate as few e-mails as possible - what about members which became inactive and thus by time...

Re: New feature - auto follow of posts

I see the discrepancy: subscribing to the topic is not very helpful, as there won't be any notification if nobody replies to it. You also can't order the subscriptions by topic replies. I also understand brunoais , as this is somehow a specific usage of a board software as ticket system or event man...

Re: Suggestion/Request Captcha Q&A module

As a side note: in Re: Good Anti Spam Q & As Samples - Please share I also implemented variables to be used instead of plain text answers: a valid palindrome, a number with five distinct digits and the current year. Maybe someone has more ideas or wants to consider using this also for future version...

Re: Template inheritance extension

It solves problem of theme inheritance, but doesn't solve problem of multiple css files I've never been in a situation where I needed to link to CSS files on a specific position from the HTML file, just the order was a matter, if at all. So when using... <!-- CSS theme/images/colours.css --> ...the...

Re: Re-thinking read/unread features

More than per-forum or per-topic timestamps isn't likely to be needed I think the post-wise approach comes from the very fact that ordering the posts by time is not mandatory. Storing the read/unread info per time would then make it mandatory. Also think of two topics being merged, which interleave...

Re: Deleting System..

I think your main (psychological) problem is that most IDs are ascending ordinals. If phpBB would use literals (i.e. hashes based on username plus/or e-mail-address) as indices nothing would be lost or wasted by not using one of those indices anymore. Same goes for everything else: forums, topics an...

Re: Deleting System..

This should never go into phpBB . Find a DBMS which does what you want - that'd be the best approach. Real-life-examples would be: Telephone numbers: old ones shouldn't be re-used (at least for a while) so people (still) dialing the number aren't confused about the unexpected person on the other end...

Re: Stop cutting off images when "too" wide...

Personally I dislike resizings (browsers on slow computers are not amused with that). Everything that's missing is a scrollbar in such a case, like you already find it for decades in almost every UI (aka overflow: auto;).

Re: [RFC] Registration & Login Overhaul

I believe this is relevant: HTML Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 . Not really. "W3C Note 6 November 2000". It's over 11 years old! Oh, it's n years old, so it's not relevant anymore. Then let's also stop following all the other " old " standards including their recommendatio...

Re: MCP > Forum > "copy" and "resync" actions always availab

I know what it does - I asked for the intention on why it is not bound to a permission, like deleting, moving, locking etc... a topic is bound to concrete permissions. Copying a topic is always allowed (whether it's possible was never of interest). There is no possibility to deny copying a topic (ot...
