Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.3 Release

Updating was a breeze and not a single problem with over 60 extensions. Both test and live forum are doing well :)

Greatly prefer the "overwrite all files with full package" method. I used to do the auto update package but this is so much easier.

Thanks all for a job well done!

Re: Slightly odd extension request - reducing post count...

... this could actually be an interesting way to encourage activity in other areas of the forum, though I think it'd have to be pulled off with a lot of care as you wouldn't want to discourage members all together. For sure - lots of care is good practice for running a forum anyway ;) I've found in...

Slightly odd extension request - reducing post count...

Hello all, I was wondering if it would be possible to write an extension that reduces a user's post count when they make a post. "Wait... what?" Backstory... There is a valued member, on one of the forums that I manage, who wishes to retire as a user, but wishes to do so gracefully and in style. So ...

Good extension - My only wish is that it would also confirm the Mark All Read on the Unread posts page... :)

Re: [3.2][BETA] Archive Forum

Very nice looking! I will test it as soon as I have time to dive into phpBB again (which is not right now but I've subscribed to the topic... ;))

Would it be possible to have a feature where users can flag a topic for archival?

Could be an additional reason in the core flagging functionality...

Re: Ignore specified forums from statistics

You're welcome!) Maybe i'll make small extension for this, but it's still just a thought) Hi GangstaZ, Thanks so much for the code snippet! I too would love to see this as an extension. I have a few private boards plus users keeping track of the total post count to see if there is anything new... :)

Re: Image Uploader Extension for "not so tech savvy" PHPBB 3.2 branch

If you wouldn't mind going through Imgur, have you taken a look at this? https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/imgur/

Works a treat and is really very simple to use.

Re: [3.1][3.2][DEV] Quotes Collection

Really liking this!

I have one request now that I've tested it - would it be possible to make the approval requirement permission based?

Say there is a group of people that you trust not to abuse the system, and another (possibly larger ;)) group that you don't...

Thanks!

Re: Looking for a way to "tag" a topic with a "new posts" icon

There is also an extension to mark posts unread which may help identify topics that you may want to return to later.

Re: Looking for a way to "tag" a topic with a "new posts" icon

But that's how the board works by default, no? The Unread Posts list lists all the topics that have received new posts since you last read anything in them. Once you read those, they won't show up in the Unread Posts page anymore. Each topic entry on the Unread Posts page contains multiple links. Am...
