Can you imagine all the Security Vulnerabilities that would pop-up in the first Microsoft version of phpBB? :shock: :o
Not to mention the huge amount of useless options :lol:
Like quick reply? *rimshot*

Re: websites that build for one browser

A browser that's being used by a big percentage of your visitors is not outdated. You should take those people into account, in my opinion. And coding for IE6 is not really that difficult, there´s plenty of simple solutions for most common problems available. Once you know them there´s no problem r...

Re: JForum - A phpBB2 Copy-Off?

I think they should put something along the lines of "design and graphics inspired by phpBB2" or similar.

Re: Integrations

Sure, if you feel like MODding phpBB. The reason it is done that way is because phpBB is the "smaller" product. In other words, phpBB is just the discussion board. It isn't meant to handle CMS functionality (though there's no reason why it can't), it is simply meant to provide a place to discuss thi...

Re: 500 internal server error when using " in pm's

Have you checked your error logs? It is probably software called mod_security, but your error logs would have the error.

Re: Discuss: What does phpBB2's retirement mean for you.

Same thing happens to me, TBH. :D There are some who would say that 3.0 cannot possibly be as stable as phpBB 2.0.23 is currently. What does "stable" even mean? It's just forum software run on an interpreted language, not like a CPU or an OS even. I've run phpBB 2 since 0.10 and have never enounter...

Re: Discuss: What does phpBB2's retirement mean for you.

Have you ever looked at the BBCode parser for phpBB2? That's one of the most unstable things I have ever seen in software that's supposed to be stable. It looks and feels like it is held together with duct tape.

Re: Discuss: What does phpBB2's retirement mean for you.

It would not surprise me to see Categories Hierarchy continue as a semi-fork of the 2.x product to be honest. It won't. The announcement to drop so quickly the support (that's not a concern) and the security tracker (that's the concern) for core phpBB 2 without any considerations of the number of b...

Re: Discuss: What does phpBB2's retirement mean for you.

A quick word about Microsoft since people can't seem to separate an operating system and a web application even though they have nothing to do with each other directly. As soon as Vista came out, Microsoft started pulling XP. None of this transition time. At one point, the only way to find an XP mac...

Re: Discuss: phpBB2's "Retirement" Announced

phpBB2 isn't even officially supported on PHP5 because phpBB2 does not fall in line with the coding standards we have in place concerning PHP5. So why then has phpBB2 been receiving official support ever since php5 was launched, regardless of what version of php it was running on? I'm pretty sure t...
