Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

I agree, feel a bad decision of phpbb to turn off notification by default... but I had already participated in this, seems phpbb not want hear about that so I stopped to ask and to discuss this. As I told I believe the right way is to let the user decide when he register or turn on by default all n...

Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

Facebook and Bulletin Boards fill entirely separate niches. The latter is for in-depth long-term discussion of a specific, defined area of interest. Tell this to the countless forums on the internet that have seen their users go over to their Facebook pages for discussion. I agree Facebook is crap ...

Re: Retrieving Custom Profile Field Values

Code: Select all

'FULL_NAME' => htmlspecialchars_decode($profile_fields[$this->item_id]['full_name']['value']),
is working nicely for me. Thanks!

Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

Yep if Arnold doesn't stop reading at Disable BBCode, Disable smiles, Do not automatically parse URLs in the options list. The whole interface will be overload for him. My experience is you teach people all the correct steps and they often forget the next time they have to do it. It's better to make...

Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

Here's a scenario to explain why we would like this option. It's based on my experiences helping people use their computer and the problems they have. Meet Arnold. Arnold is a basic computer user. He has Gmail, he can find and use various news sites, he can use Skype and can use Google to find infor...

Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

every user should have email forced upon them. It's not forced.. it's giving the board admin the option to have notifications for PMs and new Posts set to opt-out rather than opt-in. To me if feels more 'normal' that I'll get notified automatically. The notification email can be edited to show opt-...

Re: New users don't get email notifications for private messages by default

Just chiming in here with my opinion... Many people will just have one question they are looking for help with. They find a forum that looks helpful. They join and post a question. Then.... ..... ...... nothing because they aren't expecting to have to tick something to get replies (I didn't when I p...

Retrieving Custom Profile Field Values

I want to include the custom profile field values in the email sent to admin. I've got the following code but $profile_fields only includes the standard profile fields. Can I include custom fields somehow? public function get_email_template_variables() { $board_url = generate_board_url(); $username ...

Re: Direct editing only option in this case?

I hardcoded my changes in the end. There's only a few and in different places and I couldn't see how I could use the events system in this case. I tested using another style but only having the changed templates on the server and twig threw an error about missing templates. It would be cool for futu...

Re: Direct editing only option in this case?

Yep, I experimented with that but it doesn't affect the category forum lists on the homepage. I have the two categories as separate blocks (similar to the forum here). I found this code in includes/functions_display.php /** * Modify the template data block of the forum * * This event is triggered on...

Direct editing only option in this case?

I have a 3.0.x site that has some hard coded changes in some of the files. I'm moving to 3.1.x and want to use the extensions system as much as possible. In the current site I have some code like this in the display_forums function: //xgarb - getting the 'resource' forums so they can be displayed di...

Re: Adding soundcloud bbcode?

Not that I know of. You don't want to allow people to add whole iFrames as they could be anything.

It is tedious to add the code. Maybe you could ask Soundcloud to put it somewhere clearer.
