Re: error ./cache/ is NOT writable.

I can assure you that this is not a browser issue. It is solely a server-side file permission issue, which can be fixed by making the /cache directory writable by the webserver. You will have to do that on your production server as well.

Re: Secury risk: Allow php in templates?

Enabling the 'allow php in templates' option is not a security risk per-se, but it is discouragedfor a number of reasons. We want to prevent MOD authors from making MODs that put PHP code into templates. The whole point of templates is to separate output from business logic. This means separating th...

Re: phpBB Great Moments

Nice! It's kind of like with looking at pictures of when you were a child. It's the same person, growing up over time. He was so cute!

Re: SEF/SEO URLs

I would also say, "it's 2011" let's get over this and realize that "pretty urls" is a thing of the past. I humbly disagree. While URLs are becoming less significant for users, the web is moving towards embracing HTTP. This can be observed by the whole ' REST ' movement, Symfony2...

Re: PHP Framework

It really depends on the frameworks and how tightly coupled the components of them are. I can tell you for sure that the components in Symfony2 are very loosely coupled, which means it's possible to use them independently, and more important: without using the actual full-stack framework. Because th...

Re: Why Aren't "Mods" Automatic?

Your example doesn't quite apply to MODs. OS or software updates / changes apply to a whole application. So installing these updates is merely a matter of replacing the whole application package with the new version. MODs on the other hand, are like extensions to the application that is phpBB. So wh...

Re: Remote JS and MOD update policy changes

RMcGirr83: May I ask what what kind of API they provided? Is it a JSON, XML, JS... API? It's irresponsible to change an API.

Re: [Request] My code is valid?

I believe that is intended behaviour. Your stuff is written to the database, if you fail to COMMIT, your changes are rolled back.

Re: Creating phpBB3 users remotely

Pretty simple. You create a form with method POST that points to that file. It has following parameters: username, password, email. Those are then used to create the user.

Re: Creating phpBB3 users remotely

This:

Code: Select all

$_POST[username]
Will give you problems with special characters. You should be using:

Code: Select all

utf8_normalize_nfc(request_var('username', '', true))
Direct access to POST variables should always be replaced with request_var.
