Re: [BETA] Remind username

Now, I'm only here because I need exactly this kind of feature to stop lots of my users wasting my time finding out their usernames for them. This is a much-needed feature and should be included as standard, so thank you very much for developing it and I'll be putting it onto a live board with 1000...

Re: [BETA] Remind username

To update it in your forum, just overwrite the extension with the contents of the zip archive. Can I just point out that that is not the correct way to update an extension. The extension should be disabled first, then the new files uploaded and then the extension re-enabled. Just overwriting files ...

Re: [BETA] Remind username

Extension updated to fix failure, in rare cases, with certain usernames (two lines amended in event/main_listener,php).
Download link updated.

To update it in your forum, just overwrite the extension with the contents of the zip archive.

Re: [3.2][RC] Feed post bot

Installed the mod on a test board, got a couple of notes: 1. YouTube embedded videos currently seem to just get stripped out. May make it easy as follows: Replace the embed code with a link to the video, i.e. replace: <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wbSwFU6tY1c?ecver=2" width="640" height...

Re: [3.2][RC] Feed post bot

Nice mod!
Are there any plans to add a feature to post feed(s) to a specific topic, rather than forum?
Just a simple topic_id text field against each feed and a dropdown selector to choose between "post to forum" and "reply to topic".
That would be really great.

Re: [BETA] Remind username

What happens if I enter an email address only, and I've more then 1 account created with that email? From the description above: "The extension does nothing ("disables" itself) if email addresses are allowed to be re-used (more than one username may use the same email address)." This means that if ...

can you post some Screenshots?
There are no visual changes. From user''s perspective all works as usual, except for when user enters either username or email, the forum sends the password reminder email (instead of throwing an error).

Otherwise: - If username was entered: recovers password by username. - If ...

It would be better if you posted it in the Extensions in Development forum so that other users will be able to find it

Re: [Beta] phpBB Calendar 0.1.1 (alightner)

I had thought about that... But having a unique URL didn't really feel secure to me either. Also when the user imports the calendar to say google - google gives them the option of importing the events as public events... Which is another security issue too. Can you please give a bit more informatio...

Re: [Beta] phpBB Calendar 0.1.1 (alightner)

I came across another MAJOR problem with the whole ical concept. It's a huge security issue. There are two options, either you use the phpbb permission system, and people have to manually open the ical page and download the .ics file ... OR You forget permissions entirely - not recommended unless a...
