Re: Random Account Switching

This was just brought to my attention. Quite unacceptable. I'll chase this up with my contact at Bluehost and see if they can figure out why it's happening.

I don't think I have an ad blocker.

Code: Select all

<a class="ads-button-hosting"
You definitly have one when elements disappear that start with ad in their attribute values.
Maybe we should put on our black hats and change that to definitely-dont-block-this.

Re: [3.2][ALPHA] phpBBasic

Fairly stable :) It does break "Subscribe forum" (and I imagine any other secondary functionality handled by viewforum.php) due to disable_viewforum() being a bit overly ambitious. Fixed temporarily by changing: if ($this->user->page['page_name'] == 'viewforum.' . $this->php_ext) { redirect(append_s...

Re: how to make seo friendly urls

If you want me to take you seriously, you're going to have to post fewer unicode stars and more references to stats or at least authorities that are qualified to speak on the subject and support the position you're trying to push. If we assume that you've convinced me that SEO friendly URLs are a go...

I successfully updated a forum with a 3GB database. Your mileage may certainly vary with varying server configurations.

Re: Cookie Notice

I am surprised that after so many protestations by various Team members over the years that phpBB has included in the gold release of phpBB 3.2 a Cookie Notice - albeit not working at the moment. I am guessing that the reasoning behind this is because of VigLink. Yeah, there's unfortunately a bug t...

Re: how to make seo friendly urls

sorry but you have no idea what you are talking about. google has said for a long time that friendly/SEO urls make very little difference to the SERPS. some people may like them better but it makes little if any difference to the search engines. the fact that wordpress gives you the option means no...

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension

If all users donated $5, then we wouldn't have a problem. The reality is that unfortunately donations are never as forthcoming as people hope. Wikipedia famously states during their donation drive that if everyone reading their website at that particular moment gave $3, they would immediately hit t...

It's a perfectly reasonable thought, and we are actively looking into it. It doesn't have much to do with the topic on hand, however.

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension

2) Donations are not a realistic means of generating a sufficient revenue stream to make this happen. How can you possibly know this for certain if you won't even try it? The cookie law is a serious concern to those of us who run sites in EU countries, that concern will not be diminished by your in...

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension

Unfortunately, this is stuck in a bit of a loop, and I'd like to get to a point where you may not agree, but can at least see where we're coming from. Thus, having read and re-read your posts, I would like to summarize our thoughts one more time, and ask that you read these before posting again so t...

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension

I actually don't have a problem with this as it's an extension and can be disabled if boards don't want it. I would, however, be interested in a team member answering this bullet point - particularly the bold red portion. The whole process feels kind of shady. Viglink has never been discussed as an...

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension

So if Facebook starts to sell private information, it's OK for phpBB as well? And if Google starts to take secretly take pictures with the webcam when using the search engine, phpBB could also do that? I'm not sure that making outrageous slippery-slope fallacies is contributing to the discussion, u...
