Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC2 Released

Somehow that counter got there in the header, we'll be announcing why soon. :) There are three possible reasons for said counter as far as I am concerned: 1. It is [counting down to] the date you will announce that phpBB 3.1 support timetable will be changed again, because you couldn't make option ...

Re: phpBB is dead

What you describe only addresses read-only members to BBSs. Are those the majority? This depends on the style of community you are talking about... for some fields, all there generally is contribution wise most of the time is "when something goes wrong/doesn't work" or "when you need to do somethin...

Re: Licensing and code re-use in academic research software

phpBB Limited most likely have the power to enforce the license (i'm pretty sure that's the case), if someone copies the codebase. It probably has the power to act (when it comes to the main phpBB project) in one of two scenarios a) when someone misuses the name phpBB and b) if the whole codebase i...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 Released

hehe I guess they have been waylaid. lol Well, to be fair the entire project is based on volunteers these things are bound to happen. Estimating how long it takes to get something ready [for release] when it comes to software development is hard enough even when you have people on payroll. So it is...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 Released

It better be... although it is really beginning to look like they might have to extend the maintenance period for 3.1 for a second time. They have about 25 days to get 3.2 out of the door realistically in order to not have to do that.

Re: Licensing and code re-use in academic research software

There is such entity, however that doesn't mean that it can re-license the code under a different license as the current GPLv2. Fair enough, but then what is the purpose of such entity, if it is not the management of copyright? (excluding the so called moral rights as is often the case). If the ent...

Re: Licensing and code re-use in academic research software

Hi, Thank you for your reply. The problem you are describing is a management problem, not really a copyright or even an open source problem. @copyright (c) phpBB Limited <https://www.phpbb.com> This line in pretty much all phpBB source code files implies that there is a legal entity called phpBB Lim...

Licensing and code re-use in academic research software

Hi, This might be a bit of a weird question, however, I am now faced with a potential need to use a piece of code originating from phpBB (specifically the abandoned ascreus experiment branch) as a part of an artifact(s) (read: a piece of software) produced in the course of academic research and cons...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 Released

It should not be used on a live board yet. I know it isn't reccomended, but a lot of live boards use beta versions and a RC is better than a beta. Well, that depends... how phpBB defines RC, if it is within the classical definition of Release Candidate it would indeed mean that the last RC before t...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 Released

So, @Crise: You can use the RC1 and will be able to get support, when you try to update. But remember, this is on your own risk! Thanks for clarifying, I vaguely recalled that RC versions had an upgrade path to final from way back with 3.0.0 (that being the last time I even looked at release candid...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.0-RC1 Released

Will there be an upgrade path from an RC to final version?

Asking because I may have accidentally upgraded a server to php 7.0 without realizing the previous version doesn't support it.

Re: [DEV] SnCMS (phpBB powered, 0-edit)

I'd like to give it a go, but I'm a bit of a php newb, and I'd need instructions. I managed to find some old text from way back 2007, it governs more about the actual usage than about the installation but it is quoted below (it was originally written for one of the sites this was used on): The basi...

Re: [DEV] SnCMS (phpBB powered, 0-edit)

I didn't actually think I would be returning to this... but if someone happens to stumble on this, and is actually interested, the "modification" talked in it has kind of been released. The php code for what is described above can be downloaded from here (packaged using the Free and Open Source comp...

Re: Why use phpBB as your website template? (not forum)

Guys, this isn't a black vs. white discussion. The question was, why would you even want something else than phpBB to manage your site. I think there are plenty of answers to that question. That doesn't mean an extended phpBB can never be suitable to manage more than just your discussion board. Wel...

Re: Why use phpBB as your website template? (not forum)

It is very possible to force phpBB into managing web site content... without any core code edits even. Sure it won't be the most elegant "CMS" but it gets the job done :). If you think about it, if you can fetch news from forum why can't you do that for any other content as well like a page on your ...
