Re: The browser freezes while viewing a topic.

I understand that some people want to go back to 2015 but this is not the way.

Re: How to Use a Single BBCode to Embed Contents with Multiple Iframes?

If you're on phpBB 3.2 you can almost certainly ignore this warning.

Re: How to Use a Single BBCode to Embed Contents with Multiple Iframes?

You didn't explain how the definition you proposed does not achieve the thing you want to do, so I'm going to guess you need to replace {SIMPLETEXT} with {TEXT}. If that doesn't do the thing, you need to post practical examples of what the users would enter and the HTML it should produce.

Re: How to Use a Single BBCode to Embed Contents with Multiple Iframes?

You need to explain how the proposed solution differs from what you need, with practical examples of what the users would enter and how it would be displayed.

Re: How much is it for 4 new events?

How much does it cost If you're thinking about paying for someone to add that feature, your best option is to post in the "Wanted!" forum. Prepare a detailed description of what you want to achieve and what kind of budget you're working with. Having a good description of what you're tryin...

Re: ACP does not display on a fresh install

If anybody's interested, that should fix it: https://github.com/twigphp/Twig/pull/3397

Edit: ...and it's merged. So basically this should become a non-issue as soon as phpBB's dependences are updated.

Re: ACP does not display on a fresh install

PHP Notice: iconv(): Wrong charset, conversion from `utf-8' to `utf-16be' is not allowed What language pack do you use? That's probably the cause for that error, there's no reason to use UTF-16. Otherwise, it might be that your PHP install is configured for UTF-16 or something like that. Actually n...

Re: Forum Admin Death

Could someone provide direction or speak from personal experience as to what happens in a situation like this? That's not much but step one would be to find the host and make sure the account remains in good standing. If you don't know the host, post the URL here and someone will probably find it f...

Re: Need consultant to install, configure forum for Antique Car Club

This project would not include data migration from the legacy forums, but that could be something to discuss down the road. That's something you'd have to really consider before starting the new installation. Migrating an old forum (an old phpBB forum, or is that another software?) is very differen...

Re: Cannot insert 4-byte-UTF Chars into the database

The short answer is "I don't think so" and no. Convert your database manually and keep text as text.

Re: Cannot insert 4-byte-UTF Chars into the database

utf8_encode_ucr is fine to be used on HTML but I wouldn't use it on any other kind of content.

IMO the only correct way is to have the database use a proper encoding.

Re: [3.2][3.3][ALPHA] BBCode Permissions

I wouldn't add a method that just tests whether the XML is rich or plain, but I'm thinking about different kinds of markup manipulation, that's why I'm proactively looking at extensions such as yours. But I haven't got very far and I still don't know what the API would look like. There's a different...

Re: Free text search results in (big!) long running query

Please refer to the figures in my first post. 1M of rows is not particularly big and MyISAM is the worst engine to run a big board on. That's the reason your forums stopped working; MyISAM causes all the tables to get locked. Also, there's probably something inefficient with either the query, the e...

Re: Corrupt my forum upgrading from 3.3.0 to 3.3.1

I also took a full Database backup from the ACP but not sure where that is now. I'm now not convinced this downloaded to my laptop Is it possible to upload the saved PHPBB3 folder and restore the saved database? That sounds like a solid way to lose all of your data forever. Contact your web host an...
