Re: Can something be done to improve touchscreen posting?

I worked on this tonight and made a couple tweaks. Just a few lines of CSS code in the responsive style and it is a million times better posting on my phone now. I only have an iPhone so I can't test anything else. Here are example pictures: horiztonal screen.jpg vertical screen.jpg You can check it...

Can something be done to improve touchscreen posting?

The prosilver responsive style is great to look at. I notice myself looking at my own forum much more often now since updating to 3.2. But posting on a mobile device is a hellush experience. Selecting text is sometimes impossible bbCode bar can not be seen Smile list can sometimes be seen, which is ...

Re: *Anti* Social Network sites

I think part of the problem was forums were so slow to adapt to smaller screen resolutions. I just upgraded my forum from phpbb 3.0 to 3.2 and it is amazing how good it is to use on mobile now. Before you basically had to use landscape mode all the time. But with the new responsive styles it is actu...

Re: Facebook and phpBB, not a good match (yet)

You want the Social Sharing extension I think: viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2343081

I just installed it on my forum so that Google Matched Content will work better.

Popular old topic from the past

I don't know what someone would call this kind of extension. Basically it would be like the "This day in history" on Wikipedia. It would search past years for topics posted in a forum from the same month and day. For example it would look for March 15 in 2016, 2015, 2014, etc. Probably taking the on...

It stopped working in 3.2.
Any workarounds that will make all my earlier posts work again?
Did you make sure that your edits to the CSS file did not get overwritten?

I just used the above code to make Youtube embeds responsive on my 3.2 forum and it still works.

Re: Extension which prohibits bumping old topics without permission

I was hoping someone had already made such an extension.

Extension which prohibits bumping old topics without permission

I tried to search but could not find any released or in development extension like this.

I developed a MOD for 3.0 that would prevent bumping of topics over X days old unless you had permission. Does anyone know if an extension like this was ever made?

Re: When Adding Forum Image ../ Keeps Getting Added

Yeah, I just realized the file never got uploaded onto the server. Silly me.

What threw me off was inspecting the source code I didn't realize that the administration control panel is in a subdirectory. So the ../ was what I was focused on.

Thanks anyway.

Re: How much does PHPBB official forum pays for hosting ?

Maybe a better question is what kind of hardware does it take to run a forum and website of this size?

Re: Anyone else think of PHPBB as a development platform?

I was just using that as an example of how easy it is to turn PHPBB into something other than a forum.

But to add to that it is easy to use MOD rewrite to change a sites URL structure to anything you want.

Anyone else think of PHPBB as a development platform?

When you think of PHPBB do you see a forum? Or do you think of it as a platform to develop a website? For myself it is the latter. I always turn to PHPBB for anytime I need anything beyond a basic HTML page. I've done many projects with it. It provides everything you need including: session manageme...
