Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

Facebook does not operate in the EU but needs to send out enlightenment They're not doing it because Facebook operates in the EU. They're doing it because Facebook has a headquarters in the EU. Ireland's lower tax rates are starting to bite these companies back. ANd to be honest, these companies wa...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

@tojag - I've read the GDPR too, which is why I'm so vehemently against it. ;) This law's getting dangerous. I'm starting to see threads of people broadcasting that they've disabled webserver and database server logging on their systems, and broadcasting it as a bonus of using their services/sites. ...

It is possible to turn off IP{ logging in phpBB, to answer your question.

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

And then how are you going to delete messages indexed by Google, Bing, or any search engine or archived by an online archive site? This is definitely not possible as it is. EU mandates that search engines have a Right to be Forgotten feature. A user can request this for themselves, and can also req...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

If you want to comply, comply. If you don't want to comply, either geoblock or just ignore it all. The only question is if phpBB wants to pull a WordPress and make GDPR features mandatory in its core code. The answer is, as it looks to be, no. I wouldn't say that there is no chance of getting some ...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

@some of the people in this thread... I think (and this is saying something) that you are all getting way too worked up about this. The EU has bitten off more than it can chew with this law, and we'll see it spit it all out and not grab another bite sooner or later. There are hundereds of thousands ...

Re: Three features you would like to see in 3.3.

Two-factor authentication is best practice and it makes no sense for a forum software not to have it because a forum software's reputation, in terms of security, is very important. On my board I force 2FA for all admins and global moderators as part of my security practices, which are listed on my ...

Frankly, I think Xenforo is geared more towards Millennials.
Hey now, we're not all that trendy... :lol:

I would love 2fa, coupled with a group setting/permission to force it on users within that group with an optional per-user override.

Re: "Enterprise-like" phpBB implementations and phpBB experts workshops

Absolute biggest thing that prevents phpBB from being adaptable to an enterprise environment in my eyes is two things: - Lack of ability to integrate LDAP groups into phpBB groups - Lack of ability to maintain and LDAP authentication system (for admins/staff) and a separate login system for the gene...

Where can I read about of this new rule?
What new rule?
Officials may impose high financial penalties on entities using programs that do not meet GDPR. What's new?
No they can't, not if that entity doesn't own a building in the EU.

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

With static IP addresses, the prevailing opinion in the data protection world assumes that a personal reference exists. This is usually justified by the fact that a connection to the user can be established by the continuous use of the always same IP address on a large number of websites. If you th...

payment phpbb forum, I do not understand why I feel almost obligated to keep information from these sites and make them free publicity. I pay for some services and I believe and I reserve the right of admission to modify a service (template) that I have purchased. So you paid for your phpBB forum? ...

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

Yeah, and nobody will comply with GDPR that doesn't do business in the EU and the EU cannot do anything about it (just apply the same logic if the US would try to force a speeding ticket on you because you drove 130 in Poland on the highway or 200 in Germany). Probably that is why. A bit off topic,...

If it's required, I'm sure that it will be in an extension.
