Re: phpBB; Major Version Release

yes, which additional features do you feel you're in need of?

also, out of curiosity, has anyone seen a migration done from xenforo to something else? i'm guessing that, for example, going from phpBB to xenforo is much easier than going from xenforo to phpBB.

Re: Transferring live site structure to local host copy

i hear you. if i knew off the top of my head how to do it and that it would for sure work, i'd just directly answer your question. but since i don't.. instead, i'll encourage you to put that energy towards solutions that let you conveniently restore locally (or elsewhere in the event of a failure). ...

Re: [3.2][RC] Auto db Backup

nice looking extension. some info i think would be helpful to include in the OP: which db types are supported? what is the underlying backup mechanism? does it just hook the built-in phpBB backup/restore functionality? can backups be restored without using phpBB at all? if not, is there a suggested ...

Re: Transferring live site structure to local host copy

I'm setting up a phpBB test site on local, and I want to duplicate the basic structure of the live site. great idea, but why don't you want to reproduce the other data? a suggestion if i may: use this as an opportunity to test your automatic backups. restore them to your local environment so you kn...

Just because one backs up every hour does not mean one has to store more than two or three backups.
is that an actual backup policy you recommend? it sounds like a pretty bad one to me. what if you need to recover from an event that happened more than a few hours ago?

Re: Your forum past, present and future

i started a forum a couple years ago. i enjoy watching it grow and have no plans to step away. however, when i'm no longer able or willing to maintain it, it's up to the community to step up. maybe another member of my site would be willing to be the new sysadmin, or maybe the members would donate m...

just food for thought, if you want to go another direction with backups... if you use postgres, i can recommend this backup solution: https://pgbackrest.org/ it's relatively mature and feature rich, including options like incremental backup and point-in-time recovery (basically down to the db transa...

Re: Facebook Links

a screenshot of what you mean would be helpful probably. you can blank out parts of it to hide sensitive info like your name.

but are you talking about how there's a rich link preview?
if that's what you want, i highly recommend this https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... _metadata/

Re: Opening a "link" on the index page in a new window

So, next question: is there a possibility to change the appearance of the report button? To let's say text instead of report? yes, using the jQuery approach i described above. can try to give you an example if you explain clearly and in detail. for starters, precisely which report button?

Re: Button - a topic needs moderation

Is there any way of changing the text that comes when pressing the report button? Not the report options but the text in the top. definitely. you can modify the language string in phpBB3/language/en/mcp.php : 'REPORT_POST_EXPLAIN' => 'Use this form to report the selected post to the forum moderator...

Re: Opening a "link" on the index page in a new window

The dollar sign you use $ is not actually bound to jQuery here, so I would suggest altering the code. Either to use pure JavaScript with a 'document selector' or wrap it in jQuery(function($) { ... }); : {% if SCRIPT_NAME in ['index', 'viewforum'] %} <script defer="defer"> jQuery(function($) { $('....
