Re: [3.3][RC] Email Login

It seems the email address is being treated in a case-sensitive way for this extension.

Re: Change file.php to a fixed url for attachements

The content isn't checked every time. The access permission is, and after that the avatar filedata is passed thru - the avatar file itself is not accessible from the outside.

On most boards, I imagine the amount of avatar views is hundreds or thousands times more than the number of attachment views. Granted, if a board...

Why is it even done the other way by default? It is so incredibly inefficient. I don't want the entire PHP engine called every time someone views an image?

The "download/file.php" script is the biggest resource hog in my logs by far. It's wasting so much of my CPU.
