Re: How to type an emoji in a topic title?

I don't think use of the term "rich text" in this context has anything to do with "Rich Text Format (RTF)". Whereas RTF is a file format for allowing fonts, size, color and other formatting options in what had otherwise been a plain text file, my understanding is that the only thing 3Di meant when u...

Re: Updating PHP 7.3 to PHP 7.4 login fails with invalid password

I do not believe the reference to "an expected password hashing algorithm change would have occurred from PHP 7.3.x to PHP 7.4.x" is correct. There is an expected change from PHP 7.1 to PHP 7.2, and an expected change from PHP 7.2 to "anything later than PHP 7.2". But to my knowledge there is no cha...

Re: Cron icon on index page, errors in apache log

There isn't any significant technical issue I'm aware of by turning off the URL rewriting in the phpBB ACP. I think that's mainly just to make the link URLs "prettier", because it ultimately goes though app.php either way. The bigger technical problem with "I'll just use the workaround" is that this...

Re: favicons

The site I happen to use to handle those details is https://realfavicongenerator.net/. You upload a high quality image, it generates both the high and low quality assets particular to each platform, you have a chance to customize those assets before finalizing, and then it gives you a downloadable p...

Re: ProSilver Logo Bug?

Okay so I deleted the logo.png but the problem still occurs. What should I do? It's possible that's happening for you because you've visited the site before, and both the CSS and the image file it's trying to load have already been cached by your local web browser. Since if you've deleted or rename...

Re: ProSilver Logo Bug?

Not a "bug in prosilver" (or in "prosilver dark edition" that you're actually using), so much as this is the manner in which your /ext/david63/sitelogo/ extension performs your requested logo replacement. The manner in which this extension is replacing the logo depends on Javascript that runs "after...

Yeah, just to confirm, the site looks fine to me, too.

Re: ReCaptcha v3 not working anymore

Interesting, Mark. Thanks for calling that out. Using reCAPTCHA on an HTTP-only site hasn't been an issue in the past, so maybe we need to cast an eye over the Invisible & later v3 support to make sure some kind of dependency wasn't introduced unintentionally. Hmmm, I know I even used the v3 support...

Re: Confused by update process

For people like myself with modified core files, it gets very tedious having to go through them all again after each update. What's perhaps most clear is that "It should be easier, and as easy as possible, to update phpBB for users who do not modify their core files." Meaning, exactly the scenario ...

Re: A newbi question, what's the purpose of bot accounts?

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.3/ug/adminguide/system_spiders/ The bot accounts are automatically recognized by phpBB based on their agent strings, and do not need to "login" like normal users must. These accounts are used to ensure bots have "clean" content to index (e.g. no SID in the UR...

Re: FAQ page missing

Another possible explanation is that maybe your web server is NGINX or something else that doesn't use .htaccess files. The .htaccess files provided by default with phpBB supply some rules for Apache and other web servers that honor the .htaccess format; but you may be lacking similar configuration ...

Re: Unknown column 'user_email_hash' in 'field list' [1054]

The is also perhaps the "less exotic" explanation that you simply still have an extension -- which although it may be "working" on phpBB 3.3.x -- was an extension actually designed for phpBB 3.2.x. One such extension identified earlier was "OneAll social login" , although that's not to say it's the ...

Whether or not I believe the arguments against are weak (which I do), and regardless of whether previous requests have resulted in 36 for and 2 against ( which they have ), the real point is that phpBB supplies exactly this functionality (captcha plug-ins) for exactly this purpose (prevent abuse of ...
