Re: Child Extensions

I am not disagreeing that there could be an easier way to load "other" styles into an extension (and the same problem exists for language packs) and perhaps having some mechanism within the extension to load them from there might be a way forward. Do you think that a single configuration file withi...

Re: Child Extensions

I understand that scenario and it has always been there - even with mods. I don't believe that going to the effort of creating "child" extensions is the right way to go when effectively all you are wanting is to create another level, with undoubtedly additional complications, where there is already...

Re: Child Extensions

One of the things I am struggling with in regard to this idea is a "usage case" - perhaps if someone could give an example of how this would be used it might be easier to understand, because at the moment I cannot see how it would be used. Okay, let's see. With most extensions I usually want to fit...

Re: Child Extensions

Not necessarily - your forked version will still work but if you want to have the changes included in your fork then yes you will need to update your fork, but that will be a simple matter of doing a pull request. With a child extension you are still going to have to monitor any changes and possibl...

Re: Child Extensions

I agree that this should be added but how should it be implemented? It could mimic the way WordPress does it with child themes. If the Child Extension has a file with the same name as the parent's, then it should override it. [...] What I would like to do - say if I have an extension named "Ger" - ...

Re: [3.2][ALPHA] Topic Image Preview

Would it be possible to use this functionality for your Precise Similar Topics extension? Imo it would be appealing to show the first image pulled from the first post along with the title and some of the text (and maybe the author's name and the date), just like blogs do it. If there isn't any image...

Re: [RC] Contact Admin

Okay okay I know... "keep it simple" is the way it should be but I'm just letting you know that I so wish this was in the core.

Sweet extension.

Re: [RC] Topic Description

It'd be nice if descritpions would be put into html (inside <head> ): <meta name="description" content="Topic Description" /> because sometimes it is used by bots and crawlers (e.g. Google ) ;) What if the user types a not so relevant description (regarding the post's content)? For example, Title: ...

Thanks, I will make sure to change the namings if it ever turns out to be worth of becoming an extension.

Any thoughts on the logic?

Simple CSS Concatenation

I'm trying to create a lightweight way to concatenate .css files so I'm writing a small PHP class. I may create an extension later so I wanted some feedback from the phpBB community, which is why I am posting it here. Feel free to make any comments regarding its efficiency, performance, coding style...

Re: [DEV] Nivo Slider

@dmzx will it have swipe gestures? You can use Hammer.JS to create swipe gestures for Nivo Slider, like this: /** * Settings */ $(document).ready(function() {          /**     * Using hammer.js for touch.     */     if ("ontouchstart" in document.documentElement)     {         $('#slideshow0').nivo...

Re: [DEV] Nivo Slider

How about moving the link for the settings into the Slider?

You could use an icon (cogwheel?) and the word "Edit" and make them appear only on hover.

Re: IRC, Chat

An IRC web client with ACP settings would be very nice.

Settings such as server and default channel.
