Multiple listener classes in an extension?

I am adding some functionality to an existing extension, but I am not the original author of that extension, so I want to leave the original files unmodified as far as possible. My new functionality has different listeners, and template files, only sharing database tables and configuration with the ...

I don't understand the connection. The missing avatars have .jpg or .gif extensions.

Avatar audit?

A couple of months ago the server hosting our phpBB board failed, and we had to transfer to a new host. We had a good, up-to-date backup of the database , but not a matching backup of the server file system. The transfer to the new server went very smoothly, but we seem to have lost some avatars. In...

Re: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader'

Just a little update to complete the story... Our home page was index.html, but there was an index.php lurking in the directory that would only be executed if explicitly addressed. The index.php was apparently written by a previous administrator of our site, and had not been used (or updated) for mo...

Re: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader'

Thank you for your suggestions.

I have had another look at the issue today and realised that it is nothing to do with phpBB, the error is happening on our welcome page script, which has never previously given any problems, but apparently lost a file in the last server migration.

Re: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader'

This installation has never had the aboutus extension. It was a clean install of 3.1.6 with just the google search, topic preview and tapatalk extensions installed.

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader'

Running phpBB 3.1.6 with we_universal style, I occasionally see this in the apache error log: [Sat Jan 30 01:32:13 2016] [error] [client 104.145.234.55] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader' with message 'Unable to find template "aboutus_body.html" (looked into: ./forum/styles/we_u...

Isn't that what 3.1.7-pl1 is?
Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant that the security patch could have been released in 3.1.6-PL1, reducing the risk, and taking the pressure off 3.1.7.

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.1.7-PL1 Released

I understand that software has bugs, and it is not relevant where the bugs came from or how they were not caught before release, but it does not look good when there is no stable release with all known security patches, and (apparently) no urgency about providing the same. Note that this situation w...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.1.7-PL1 Released

Can we get clarification on whether 3.1.7 PL1 has any security fixes for exploits that are present in 3.1.6? That is not very clear in the announcement.

Re: [BETA] Post Love

You could submit this as PR to postlove ... it could be configurable from the new ACP panel. I was going to add profile specific statistics in some future version. OK, I did think about making this an enhancement to postlove, but it was easier to start with a hacked version of topfive (as it has a ...

OK, I will fix it in the next version. Can you point to an example of such a check?

True. I had already added that in my development repository, but not in the version on github (due to some unresolved issues in that version).

I have now pushed that change.
