Re: [Discuss] Welcome Back phpBB.com

LinkedIn doesn't allow anything else other than employees. LinkedIn has a volunteer section. On my profile that is where I put my time with phpBB. It does not on company profiles, which is what was being discussed here. So it lists all of these volunteers as employees? Interesting. I saw the part a...

Re: Rapid phpBB Development - Oh the Joy!

There's no obvious system for how a feature gets included. I post an RFC to Area51, then get feedback. Then ???. But there's no BDFL who has the final say, or a threshold for how much support is necessary/sufficient. I would be unlikely to develop a feature without believing it has a good chance to...

Re: phpBB-BBCode-Javascript-Parser

I wrote it as a proof of concept. It is suppose to be the phpBB3 BBCode parser written in javascript so that it could be used in a rich text/wysiwyg editor. Here is a plugin for ckeditor that uses it: https://gist.github.com/wGEric/1595828 It has bugs and at this point I don't have any plans to fix ...

Re: When

It was 5 1/2 years to get to phpBB3 from phpBB2. It's been 4 1/2 years since phpBB3 released. phpBB4 is pretty much not started (some planning and there has been talk of work on external librarys that will be needed for phpBB4, but no actual code for it). I wouldn't think about phpBB4, at the rate ...

Re: gmail.com spam users with multiple dots in email usernam

If you are going to write code then wouldn't it be better to strip all periods from the username portion of gmail addresses and then proceed with the registration process? That way it will fail the duplicate email check since none of the gmail addresses have periods and people will get an error mess...

Re: One year later, "phpBB Falling Behind"

I would really appreciate it if you would try and help us too, rather than tie up tons of people in pointless discussions like this one. Discussions like this are what made me decide that I don't want to contribute. From yours and Marshalrusty's replies I see that things are the same as they were a...

One year later, "phpBB Falling Behind"

It has been over a year since I posted the phpBB Falling Behind topic. 3.1 appears to be a little closer to release but still a long ways off. AJAX was merged. Template events have been merged. Migrations (part of extensions) is still a blocker. phpBB really is falling further and further behind. It...

Re: What is the reason for so many users moving to myBB

I did a lot of research before starting out with my first forum. After a lot of comparisons between phpBB, myBB, SMF, bbPress, IPboard, Advanced Electron and many others I finally chosed phpBB ( tough my research actually favoured myBB over phpBB ) for just one good reason, Community Support. From ...

Re: phpBB vs. vBulletin

When phpBB added SSL to this site it was very slow. That must mean that phpBB can't handle large forums right?

Re: IF JS DISABLED

HTML5 Boilerplate adds a class to the <html> tag named no-js or something similar. They then use javascript to remove this class. Using CSS and the no-js class you can show/hide elements on the page.

Re: [Discuss] Introducing Forumatic - Managed phpBB Hosting

The recommendation on this site isn't "free", it is based on a more long-term model that we borrowed from a number of other open source projects that have successfully implemented it over the years. What is that model? To prevent any influence Nils and I have from becoming a conflict of interest, t...
