When you click on member list in a stock version of PHPBB 3.11, it will list members in chronological order by their join date. I would prefer that the newest members are listed at the top (reverse chronological order) I'm guessing the modification required needs to be non in memberlist.php. I'm loo...

Re: My posts don't come up in some searches on my board

To mitigate my accidental duplicate posting (which is locked, and I can't remove) I finally did some testing: This feature works great on a stock build of PHPBB 3.0.11, but doesn't work on my forum that has about 200+ posts and 500 users. For some reason all posts from many authors are excluded. I d...

It makes it really convenient for users to scan a list of all content in my forum. I call this feature "Forum Timeline" and it's a link they can click on topic...

bbcode editor for offline writing of posts

Often, I want to write longer articles offline before posting to my forum. I've found a few offline BBCODE based editors with a window that shows you how it will look formated.

Re: Moving forum files to an external CDN

nilanko, I'd like to integrate a CDN into my phpbb site as well. In my case, it's not to offload my shared server, but to improve page loading performance for my users.

Re: Nesting loops in template file (3.0.11)

Paul, the PHP code for Navlinks is in function generate_forum_nav in function_display.php I've been reluctant to mess with this code because Navlinks are also used in overall_header template function generate_forum_nav(&$forum_data) { global $db, $user, $template, $auth, $config; global $phpEx, $php...
