Memory leaks with PHP 7.3

All, For a long time, I'm running PHP 7.1.x versions to run phpBB and the rest of my site. After my upgrade to phpBB3.3.0, I've switched to PHP7.3.15 (latest minor right now). However... since that switch, my server has gone out of memory repeatedly, so I switched back, and problems went away. So, I...

Re: Emojis

Please tell me why we can't use more " recent " styled smiles in the core. The description I was making intended to try and push "a step beyond this", by not simply updating the current Smilies images "to be pixel-based replicas of Emoji images", but to change the Smilies system itself to literally...

User banning - is it a convention?

Having run a board for 15 years, I recently had a discussion with some friends, and we suddenly wondered why banning a user from the forum actually works the way it currently does. As it is right now in phpbb (I'm not sure about other forums, input would be welcome), banning a user registers a usern...

Notifications from ignored users

Some of my forum's users are complaining that even when they ignore users, and that user quotes their posts, they still get a notification of that quote. Though I didn't check it myself yet, I found this strange, so I'm wondering if this is indeed the case, and if this is actually intentional, or ca...

Re: phpBB 3.2.4 with PHP 7.3: warning in zendframework/ArrayObject.php

Sorry to reactivate this topic again, but was this already logged as an issue in phpbb?

The issue was fixed in zendframework 9 months ago (although it seems the change is only included in the 3.x branch):

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

Not sure if asked before here, but because PM's are private data, and when banned, members can't access them anymore, wouldn't that be an issue?

I mean, wouldn't it be good to just disable posting and PMing when users are banned? Or is there something that I now overlook?

Keep track of disapproved posts

Just like with soft-deletion of posts, where the post is not completely lost, disapproved posts should still remain present in the database, and listable somewhere in ACP/MCP .

This is mainly to help moderators if members complain about disapproval.

Re: Posts revisions

Absolutely!
Would help the mods as well, as some users post offensive stuff and later modify it. When that happened before a mod has seen the original, it's a problem for decision making.

Re: Avatar resize in core

Some code already exists for this. It only needs to be adapted and fitted into the core I think.

Various board system already support this, so a no-brainer to add this.

Re: Best practices: moderator communication

@KevC Impressive. What is the forum about? Never people boiling over? ;) It's only a car forum but it's more the way you run it. You make the right kind of sections, the people have a common interest, you don't let things boil over too much. I see too many forums where slanging matches go on for pa...

Re: Best practices: moderator communication

A private forum has resolved some of our problem. We use it particularly as a knowledgebase. Problem is though that when mods don't subscribe, posts get unnoticed, and after a while of inactivity (which happens if things are running well), people stop checking new posts there. It would help to have ...

Best practices: moderator communication

Hi all, Having run a forum for more than 10 years, the problem of alignment and communication among moderators continues to pop up each few months. We've tried various things, but it's always a bit annoying to have different systems and trying to work out what works along the way. So, how are you gu...

Re: Migrating an old bbcode

Yes, it's just the name of an old bbcode that I want replaced.

Meanwhile I found also that I need to resubmit these posts, so I'm looking into a procedure that replaces this in the posts, and programatically resubmits each affected post.

I was hoping somebody had already done something similar.

Migrating an old bbcode

Hi, I'm looking into migrating a few old bbcodes to the media bbcode, which covers several of my cases. As I want to avoid that posts from the past no longer parse correctly, I'd like to know if there is some procedure on what to do to replace these bbcodes in posts. Basically, I need to replace [xx...

Re: How to add questions to FAQ

Thanks for the replies.

I've found where the event 'core.faq_mode_validation' is called, but strangely, I can't find anywhere how phpbb would enter in this code.

Can anyone tell me how this method is called? (I never end up in there...)
phpbb\help\controller\help::handle(string $mode)
