Re: [3.3][RC] Manage Forum Subscriptions

Which line of CSS code should I change: where and how? It is in the acp.css file of this extension and is at the bottom of that file (it is commented) I just commented out the last block in acp.css, and the Subscriptions page now opens expanded, making it easier to review and edit. Thanks, David. S...

User Registration extension for precise Regex control of Permissible Names?

Is there such an extension that allows for precise Regex control over permissible user names, e.g., enforcing FirstnameLastname (no spacer)? I have set User Registration Settings to "alphanumeric" and "must be mixed case" but that's too broad. The following archived topic https:/...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

I'd feel more comfortable if the admin, as a rule, could have greater control over content and display You could post an idea and see what happens. Can you give us a use case for this? On most boards cross posting is either forbidden or at least discouraged so I am not sure what this would achieve....

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

Well you wanted to display it in a place where it wasn't really designed to . The category description can be seen when you go inside a category although it is hidden by default don't know why though . But there is also an option to set an image for a category but the code to display it is nowhere ...

Re: [3.3][RC] Manage Forum Subscriptions

it would be good to have the option for User Administration: Forum Subscriptions panel to be displayed expanded by default. These types of things are always difficult but from experience I find that it is better starting from being collapsed otherwise you can end up with long pages to scroll throug...

Re: How to make external URLs display in a new window?

Another option is Prime Links offering more configuration options. After looking at "External Link in New Window," I decided to install "Prime Links" instead for its wider range of options and flexibility. Though I've made some more obvious settings that meet our basic needs, I ...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

I think it looks better this way because otherwise you will get a lot of empty space Yes, I agree with you, as this also lends greater prominence to the containing category (DIALOGUE) over its constituent (dialogue) forums. However, I'd feel more comfortable if the admin, as a rule, could have grea...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

but why not just add it with bbcode in the forum description instead? Yes, I should have thought of this instead of even more (dangerous...) tinkering with the built-in code :roll: But the formatting problem with both image and description remains. The original proposer (bobnws) of the category des...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

As you can see, the category description is now showing. It looks to me like it's working I think svĀbhinava - Forums www.svabhinava.org 53f441d0b5ca.png Yes, the description part is working, but the added code does not display the category image. The image shown in your attachment belongs to first...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

Did you purge the cache in ACP after adding that? It works fine on my test board Yes, I purged the cache several times but to no effect. However, I discovered something strange just now that leaves me confused. I found only a single instance of forumlist_body.html in this directory: /forum/includes...

How to make external URLs display in a new window?

All URLs in phpBB (3.3.2), whether on the interface or in posts, are being displayed in the same window. External URLs therefore take you completely out of the board (with the user possibly later forgetting how he got to this page). Is there some way to add a parameter (target="_blank"?) t...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

I just tried it with a new forum and 2 subforums ... and I think it may just work after all. It's certainly worth trying. But again, only do this on a copy which you can afford to lose, as restoring it manually it is quite troublesome. When I converted the "Interreligious and Intercultural Dia...

Re: How to display Category description & image on Board Index page

What would happen if I were instead to change the "Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue" into a (locked) forum (no posts allowed) and then convert all its current forums into subforums. Would that serve our purpose better? If so, what might be the (unintended) drawbacks? Thanks, Sunthar
