Re: Add "New Posts" to header

Or you could install a style that already has the quick menu links as buttons, e.g we_univeral style.

Re: How to rewrite images URLs: from HTTP to HTTPS

You may also consider my Image Redirect extension which uses a camo proxy to serve external http images as https.

Re: [3.2][BETA] Image Redirect

I don't understand your question. This extension works on all 3.2.x versions of phpBB (to be honest I have not tested with 3.2.8 yet, but see no reason that it should have broken). It does require that the phpBB database upgrade corresponding to the introduction of th S9E parser into phpBB is comple...

Re: Looking for an innovative modern forum style>>

OK, the behaviour has now been explained, another 'undocumented feature' of phpBB. It will be fixed in the next release of we_universal.

Re: Looking for an innovative modern forum style>>

I doubt that the phpBB team would have approved the style for the styles database if it was broken. It really is the demo board that can't cope with it.

Re: Looking for an innovative modern forum style>>

You could take a look at we_universal . The Styles demo board is broken and does not show this style, but there is a list of real-world boards using it at: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/we_universal/support/topic/206671 If it doesn't suit you needs, I would be interested in your feedback.

Re: Re-implement "Drafts" as normal posts visible only to the poster

This could help with this idea too: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=436&t=2189611 Posts awaiting approval could be set as draft. Both features seems that would do something very similar. Funny that you should mention that, I have just completed coding of that feature (PR at: https:/...

Re: Re-implement "Drafts" as normal posts visible only to the poster

I had forgotten about draft PMs (never had the need for them), but they should be dropped or reworked in a similar manner.

Re-implement "Drafts" as normal posts visible only to the poster

The current system for handling drafts is a bit of a unicorn, and lacks several features that users commonly want, such as BBCode support, attachment support, and probably others that I have not thought of yet. In my experience, the users who most need to use the drafts facility are creating long, a...

Re: Images Hijacked by Photobucket?

Effective 9 September 2019, Photobucket is now both watermarking AND blurring images posted by any free member whose remote-linked images exceed 25MB in bandwidth (calculated on a rolling basis). This basically means ALL images. So Photobucket has gone back on their public statements that they had ...

Measuring forum usage trends

If you want to know the long term tend in posts on your forum, you can run the follwing query on your mysql database and grpah the results in a spreadsheet. SELECT DATE(FROM_UNIXTIME(FLOOR(post_time/2629744)*2629744)) as Date , COUNT(FLOOR(post_time/2629744)) as post_count , COUNT(DISTINCT(poster_id...

Re: Make ACP cookie configuration easier

What I am suggesting is that if all the fields in the ACP are left blank, then the board will select a safe set of parameters to populate the actual cookies (which of course are not blank). The problem with the current implementation is that it requires admins to fill in values that they often don't...
