Re: [Discuss] phpBB 3.1 "Ascraeus" to require PHP 5.3.2

I cannot make that upgrade as I have many files in asp. My server in linux with chilisoft to run asp. This is not compatible with Apache 2, which has the 5.3.2, according to my server host. If your host is running a PHP version less than 5.3 than it is out of date. The final PHP 5.2 version was rel...

No. They can't encrypted because the forum has to access them (to display them).

Re: phpBB + OOP

I was just wondering if you have any plans to rewrite the code in phpBB in OOP fashion anytime soon ? I haven't had much experience with phpBB's codebase over the past few years but I do know phpBB is already using at least some object-oriented programming. Also, see this: https://wiki.phpbb.com/Ph...

Microsoft Kills Messenger XMPP service

Microsoft will be killing off their Messenger service . They are replacing it with Skype, which of course uses a secret protocol. A lot of people who use XMPP are using Microsoft's servers. Out of interest, how many phpBB users use the Jabber/XMPP functionality and will be affected by this? Also, wi...

Re: Marijuana - Legalized in 2 US States

I've heard that for children and teenagers that smoke marijuana long-term, there can be long-term effects. But for very sick people apparently it can be beneficial. I wouldn't consider using marijuana myself. But considering many thousands of people are in jail for distributing and using marijuana, ...

Re: (newspaper article) Could CAPTCHAs get any more annoying

I install captcha in my forum a month back. In the starts I was getting only few spam per week, but recently from last week I got more then 300 spam. I dont know how the spam are overtaking the captcha ? Visual CAPTCHAs have been broken for years. Take a look at Preventing Spam in phpBB3 for some w...

Re: SEO - Obsolete?

I don't understand the resistance to this. What is the argument for NOT including search-friendly URLS? Firstly, most of the proposals for "friendly URLs" consisted of leaving the number in it, but with keywords in it as well. As for having URLs without the number, the concept isn't too b...

Re: SEO - Obsolete?

This thread is outranked Perhaps the other links are more popular or have better content? I'm willing to bet that some of the posts outranking this one don't have anywhere near the root domain authority that phpbb.com carries which proves my point even further. Again, that's speculation. Have you c...

Re: SEO - Obsolete?

I think it's pretty clear that the most glaring problem with phpbb is the lack of search-friendly/human-readable URLS out of the box. I honestly can't believe that it is even being argued. It is a basic function of almost all modern web software and should be implemented immediately. Unfortunately ...

Re: SEO - Obsolete?

Being in the index and being able to rank on page one for something meaningful that will actually send relevant traffic to your website are two completely different things. If the developers of phpbb want to make sure it can continue to compete against other platforms, SEO best practices need to be...

This discussion isn't about my board, though...so I respectfully suggest that you keep things on topic. Respectfully, this discussion seemed to be more about accessibility (regarding CAPTCHAs) so my comment seems on-topic. I was just pointing out that you don't seem to have any concern for accessib...

Of course I thought about it. :roll: It's why I have a custom greyscale skin on my site specifically designed for color-blind users (among other things, links are always underlined). But that's beside the point. When I visited your website I got a "404 - Not Found" redirect, because I had...

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

From all my findings i can see that in the past 2 years hundreds of users have migrated to myBB inspite of the huge community support here. Why? Are the phpBB officials even trying to find out why? A few points: There are possibly millions of forums on the internet. Some like changing to whatever's...
