Is there a particular reason for old jQuery version? Safe to replace?

While poking around, I notice that even the latest 3.2.2 download contains jQuery 1.11.9 from January 24, 2014. The current version of jQuery is 3.3. I'm happy to just go ahead and drop in the latest version, but is it likely to break anything? Yes, I know the obvious answer is "why don't you just t...

Re: Saving orphaned attachments to a folder?

Thank you - I prefer your second idea. I thought about attaching them to one post, but it would have taken ages to paste, paste, paste the post ID into all the boxes! I'm sure it could be done from the console by someone clever but... time is short!

Thanks for the useful script.

Saving orphaned attachments to a folder?

Got about 600 orphaned attachments (99% photos) over the years. My idea was to save them to a folder, and give people the chance to claim them before deletion. For now, I can simply use a Chrome extension to "save multiple links" but is there a smarter way of doing it? It would be great to have a "m...

Resizing existing uploaded image attachments

We've got posts and files going back 8 years and the attachment folder is now 2.5Gb with a lot of HUGE images. Although the files have no extension, Linux's "file" command gives this info: 9897_45200056c4ea07275bf57e07323eda39: JPEG image data, Exif standard: [TIFF image data, little-endian, direntr...

Re: [3.2][RC] Auto db Backup

Based on experience, I would select "NO", because it doesn't backup with "YES"!

That said, you should be using InnoDB anyway, which apparently doesn't allow for optimisation like that (someone correct me if wrong)

Re: Secure Login

if you are an admin and someone intercepts your login data or session cookies/data after you've logged in that person now has your entire user database, private messages and so on This isn't true either: phpBB checks the session against the IPv4 address, so it would be invalidated unless the attack...

Re: Secure Login

How about the server load compared between http and https? For every connection the server has to do the encryption additionally, correct? Will it increase the load significantly? The "cost" of encrypting that first connection is negligible - around 5ms (0.005 seconds) and around 1% increase in CPU...

Re: Secure Login

EDIT: Looks like Techie-Micheal beat me to what I was typing, and explained it better too! Here what I had anyway... Isn't the sensitive info, whatever that might be, only transferred when the form is submitted ? It is usually only one way is it not? Because if you are an admin and someone intercept...

Re: Secure Login

running normal html/css under SSL has absolutely no benefit to anyone. Sorry, but that is simply incorrect. It gives a BIG speed boost as the requests can be served over http2, which is not possible with non-ssl sites. Here is a real-world test done over a 48h period : HTTP Protocol Version Average...

Re: [3.2][RC] Auto db Backup

Just to update, I've turned off optimize and it still didn't work, so I changed it to 1 hour and changed from bzip to gzip. Will report back.

Re: [3.2][RC] Auto db Backup

Many thanks for this great plugin and the update. However, I'm having the same problem as above - I set it to next backup at 18:00 and to backup every 12 hours. But 6pm passed, and when I reloaded, it was set to next backup at 6am (which is correct) but nothing in the store directory, which has 777 ...

Re: Fulltext mysql create search index

I just had to do the same thing again, this time to create an index in 3.2

Should I file a bug?
