I would also say that saying that the phpBB developers don't pay close enough to standards (it's quite the opposite... they even wrote the standards!*) is quite absurd, considering that third-party modifications to the codebase are not part of the normal codebase, which is what the developers devel...

Yes, the PHP 3 thing was a joke. ;) I know some mods are going to 'go bad,' but when a basic update makes a whole lot of mods uninstallable, then perhaps the mod writers aren't the ones who should be paying closer attention to standards. :idea: Standards in general are a good idea, yeah... but there...

Hm, not bad; hadn't thought of that. It would even out the code a bit as well. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

I would not use Dreamweaver, as god knows what kind of markup it'll add to your .tpl's, and whether or not phpBB will like them when it's done with them. Grab conTEXT ; it's an excellent text editor. The best way to edit .tpl's is in plain text; find the text you want to change and work on it that w...

Templating requirement question

I have quite a few forms of similar size to generate (unfortunately, they're different enough that one template won't work for more than two or three of them), and am wondering if this will cause my mod to be denied for database entry. What I'm doing is building HTML tables in my PHP libraries, then...

If you haven't already, perhaps you should look for/request a mod that adds a link to the new user's profile to the email. I know this would be handy, as I accidentally activated several users when I first started using admin activation, and have also found it rather backwards that the only link pro...

It also adds time to the development cycle. Besides, I think the point made earlier was that people who write their own mods should submit them; that'd be a waste of time if they hadn't started off following the requirements here. While the language libraries might make the code cleaner, they do mak...

poyntesm: I'm currently working on a new version of my own car mod... though it's less based on users' actual cars and more on the idea of buying, modding and racing them via the board. It's been a pretty decent hit on a couple of auto sites. I see you have mods that users can buy... is that somethi...

...releasing it to the community helps others because they can have the chance to add the same feature. There are millions of copies of phpBB out there, chances are if there's a feature you want and have coded, someone else will want it too. Completely agreed... the problem I've had (and I'm sure o...

If you're running a custom user database for your current logins, it's highly unlikely there's a conversion script out there that will do what you're looking for. I'd recommend just doing the install, writing yourself a quick script that will pull your user data and insert the values you need into p...

Arod's another member with an attitude problem.

Wishing disability on someone is a pretty cruel thing. I hope for your sake that you get over whatever mental disability is causing you to be such a hateful person. :)

Those particular statistics are results of functions. Yep... basically, the best way to generate these stats is to query the database yourself, i.e. build your own queries, retrieve counts from the user/post tables and work out the averages/totals for yourself. There are several premade statistics ...

Was that given to you for a control panel login? Because port 80 is generally set as the web server port.
