Re: Custom language strings for style creation.

Style inheritance must also be honored here: If a child's language directory doesn't provide the string, it may be because a parent style's language directory provides it. Not sure what kind of situation you have in mind? If I create child_style to inherit from your_style, and copy the overall_head...

Re: Custom language strings for style creation.

You might have already seen this recent discussion , and are proposing this phpBB Ideas as a better and more formalized approach that styles could employ. But I'm mentioning it just in case you're also thinking "it can't be done currently." To the point of "could this be formalized to make support e...

Re: Display Full Post - Search Users Posts

There is not already a setting where you can make that the default when clicking on "Search user's posts" from their profile display. You may already realize that "show the entire post" is an option in the Advanced Search, as "Return first xxx characters" which defaults to "first 300 characters." So...

Re: Are uploads in chunks?

Yes. phpBB uses plupload, and plupload is able to transmit the file in one or more arbitrarily-sized chunks in order to send the entire file. So you can successfully upload a 100MB+ file to phpBB -- even though possibly the PHP maximum POST size or PHP maximum file size would only allow up to 24MB t...

Re: Add an OnBeforeUnload prompt when message editor is still active

I click "quote" on posts to get the post content with all BBCodes to use it elsewhere (i.e. another topic I'm already replying in) - in such a workflow I neither encountered a preview, nor will the "other posts have been made" feature kick in. Agreed on that; this is my workflow as well. Creating "...

Re: Strip metadata from images by default

AFAIR, if you set in ACP/board configuration/attachments settings the Maximum image dimensions to something greater than 0 ( both height and width) then those Exif metadata will be automatically stripped by the plupload resize's option and the quality reduced to 85%. That's not the testing result I...

Re: An extension to strip metadata from images

Plupload will still be used for attachment uploading even if the image size is smaller than the dimensions specified in the ACP. It will still compress the image according to the quality setting described in my post above and strip the EXIF data. Absolutely the "plupload will always be used" was th...

Re: App.php - Rewrite subdomain

Okay. Because you've tested and seen "When i visit http://example.pgreca.it/, it return me the root of domain (pgreca.it/index.php)" , then I think you should be able to get the result described by omitting the "R=301" out of the rule, as previously shown: RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.pgreca.it...

Re: allow users to change theme

In addition to having "Override user style: No" configured, the option also only appears when there is actually more than one style installed and activated for the user to select between. The place you're expecting this option to show up in the User Control Panel is in the Board Preferences tab unde...

Re: Graphical posting instead of codes

Possibly Senky's Simple WYSIWYG editor (a lightweight "what you see is what you get" editor) might be what you're looking for. As shown in the preview screen shot there, it gives you an editor where both text and images are seen formatted as you edit, instead of seeing only the BBCodes. If you only ...

Add an OnBeforeUnload prompt when message editor is still active

We've all seen scenarios such as this one , where for whatever reason it was not obvious that a message hadn't been posted yet, but the tab or browser was closed before realizing and being able to preserve the not-yet-committed message text. I've also done it simply when closing the wrong tab when w...

Re: An extension to strip metadata from images

One thing to test with the plupload-based "preserve headers" is whether anything gets stripped if the image was already within the height/width limit specified. i.e. Is this something that only happens when resizing is actually necessary (like "quality" would be), and is the image uploaded as-is whe...

Re: Does my forum look responsive to you

img { width: 90%; } That pretty much "has to" create issues elsewhere, because the selector is specifying "all <img> elements anywhere in the document." The advertisement images aren't being selectively targeted. Specifying only a width: value without any other controls also means the aspect ratio ...

Re: possible to modify "topic reply notification" email?

I've been member of some boards which were a transition away from prior mailing list or NNTP interfaces, and did some fairly heavy customization in order to try and satiate or reduce the friction for users who were used to having the full text available offline.

Re: ACP Index

I agree with the idea that "inactive users" really doesn't need to be there. I would expect to find that "sample of most recent inactive users" at the bottom of the first page shown in "Users and Groups" tab, rather than the bottom of "General". But that might be more important on boards with admin ...
