Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.3 Release

Not sure how you have been doing it for over 10 years when phpBB 3.1/3.2 has only been out for four years Many core changes could be transferred into 3.1 from earlier versions. Duh. I don't know what core changes we're talking about, but you can make an extension from almost every core change. And ...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.3 Release

At last i have found the answer to when phpBB will have the next release - when I am away on holiday. Almost every release since 3.1 has occurred when I am away - and no I will not tell anyone when I am next on holiday!!! It actually was kind of vacation for us as well. We were just working hard du...

Re: Don't rewrite non http URLs in bbcode

I've changed the status to "Invalid" as this won't really work. An URL should contain a scheme-part like "https://" or "ftp://" or "mailto:", if there isn't this is a hard problem for a computer to solve. Humans might know that "google.com" should go to https://google.com, but let's say you wanna ac...

Re: Automatically translate vBulletin BBcode to phpBB BBcode

This is basically working now, since the new BBCode engine also recognizes the VBulletin format.

Re: Editing templates in ACP

In my opinion, this idea doesn't belong to the core but instead to an extension. That would be perfect. There is no place in the core for this as the use case is limited.

Re: [3.1][3.2][RC] Top Poster Of The Month (reloaded)

Hello 3Di, I am a little without free time this week, but I gave a try in this new version and could see that the load average is still going up, but now to a lesser degree (before it was going to 25 or 30, and now is going to 5). And could spot two errors: First. Every page load I get the debug no...

Re: Running the "normal" phpBB tests with my extension enabled

I believe you are better up with asking this question on area51 discussion board . (for the future at least ;) ) Also I don't believe that this is possible. The default test suite doesn't know about extensions. So I believe you have to code your own tests, but there are examples in the repositories ...

Re: Changes in migrator in 3.1.10-RC1 / 3.2.0-RC2

So basically, what we're saying here is if you use an "if" in update_data like: public function update_data() {    return array(        array('if', array(          true,          array('permission.add', array('some_data')),       )),    ); } If you rely on the (unintended) behavior that when uninst...

Re: Changes in migrator in 3.1.10-RC1 / 3.2.0-RC2

I assume the number of the affected extensions will be very very small. As I said, it is only important for those who relied on this behaviour . (But you really should have not relied on this as it is really hard to predict what will happen) All others will just benefit from this change and don't ha...

Re: Crone task run only once.

You should change the last line in should_run() to return $this->config['send_reminder_last_gc'] < strtotime('10 minutes ago'); Probably the (bool) converts the saved config value into a boolean before comparing it. Don't ask why PHP doesn't convert the boolean into a integer value then... I don't k...

Re: Changes in migrator in 3.1.10-RC1 / 3.2.0-RC2

There was no discussion about this, since it isn't possible to predict what the extension author wants to execute on revert in case of an if . You can't invert the condition as that might not be always true and you can't invert the call since this isn't always true for all. Thus, we just avoid it al...

Changes in migrator in 3.1.10-RC1 / 3.2.0-RC2

As of the next released phpBB version (3.1.10-RC1, 3.2.0-RC2), the migrator will skip if statements returned by update_data() on revert just as if they were custom methods. if statements returned by revert_data() are of course unaffected. Previously, these if statements were somehow executed when re...

Re: Paid styles and extensions for PHPBB

I think that some support (not actual download or validation on phpbb.com) of paid addons to phpbb can be good for the ecosystem. I don't think so, to be honest. We can be proud of ourselves, that we have a team which validates the free extensions for free - I think this is very special to phpBB an...
