Re: 3.27 to 3.2.8 successful, couple of funnies though

2) I make lots and lots of backups. Especially before I update. My public_html folder and database file are encrypted with first an SFX archive and then in a Truecrypt container with a cascade of ciphers of AES, Twofish and Serpent. The passwords are all over 30 characters and stored in Keepass who...

Re: [RC] Win10 for phpBB 3.2.8

It's the bg.jpg image in win10/theme/images.

Your replacement would have to be the same size. I'm not sure what file specifies the size. I'd have to look further.

Re: 3.27 to 3.2.8 successful, couple of funnies though

There are two things I do before I commit to an update. Actually three. 1) I use a domain for testing a clone of my current forum. That is my testing ground for updates and extensions, etc. That domain has an htaccess file that only allows my IP address so everything else is 403ed. 2) I make lots an...

Re: Your forum past, present and future

Your forum past, present and future. For me it was more about a learning experience with websites and cyber security. I'm still learning to this day after having a forum with next to no users after 4+ years. :lol: I guess there are many other reputable computer forums out there and social media I t...

Re: [RC] Win10 for phpBB 3.2.8

Hey there, This is a really nice style but I'm having a small problem with it I'm unable to get the forum images to work. I did upload the images I want to use to the images folder and I'm linking it correctly in Forum image: Location, relative to the phpBB root directory, of an additional image to...

Have you seen the code WYSIWYG editors churn out? I can't stand the things!
Off topic, but your avatar has always intrigued me. The hospital I've been to a number of times is called MCR. Medical Center of the Rockies. :lol:

Re: Why doesn't phpBB follow some trends like its competitors?

but a WYSIWYG editor can go to hell. I don't like the fact where my text is exactly formatted from the content I copied. Yep, try posting quotes from an article on an Xenforo forum, christ in the time it takes to make it to look normal you could have wrote the article yourself, on a phone it takes ...

Re: Link convert to base64

Like I said. The ABBC extension has a hide from guests BBcode that can be used. If you or your users want to hide a URL just highlight the URL and hit the "Hide from guests" BBcode button in the post.

Re: Link convert to base64

Sounds like a fair request, especially with me knowing that you can obfuscate java script code in the same manner to hide crap. There's even a website that can generate canary tokens and one token is in fact a JS token. What you do is take the JS they give you, run it through an online obfuscate web...

Re: Why doesn't phpBB follow some trends like its competitors?

Friendly URLs would be nice, but a WYSIWYG editor can go to hell. I don't like the fact where my text is exactly formatted from the content I copied. And sometimes the format will render all messed up. It's better to keep a WYSIWYG editor as an extension only feature which there is. And I do believe...

Re: PDF View

I can't really help on your PDF display issue other than say perhaps you have a blocker of some sort on in your phone or what ever. What I am here to say is that a PDF can be inherently dangerous in terms of malware or a canary token that will log IP addresses from anyone that views the PDF. How ca...
