The standard lesson from any database design course - Normalisation and efficiency do not always work out to the same thing. ;) There are several places in the schemas of both 2.0 and 3.0 where it is more efficient to "cache" the value and have code which updates that as appropriate than it is to tr...

Errors such as that should be reported to the bug tracker so that we can look into them

It might also be easier to look at the code that is already in phpBB to do this sort of search and base whatever you need off that (there is a username search available from the PM screens and several parts of the ACP)

The message is now:
a) in bold on the last step of the installer as well as in the ACP
b) in red text in the ACP
c) In the install guide

I don't think there is much else we can do to make people read it

Essentially it can be any value you want as long as it's appended to the relevant tags.

There is a function in the code to generate an id, or you could just use the same string for them all

Look at the encode_ip functions in functions.php - essentially it is the hex form of the IP address. The bbcode_uid is for performance - we calculate which are valid tags at posting time and append a unique value to them such that at viewing time we don't need to parse the post and can just do a sim...

They are all language strings, so have a look in lang_main.php in the relevant language pack and you can alter them

As it stands at present (and it's unlikely to change) there will be an upgrade path from 2.0.x available to RC 1 and an update path from there to the final release (possibly via intermediate RC releases if needed).

Why? If you give someone the power to ban users, it means you trust them to ban users. If you don't trust someone with that power, then you probably shouldn't give it to them Remember, 3.0 does not have the concept of an all powerful administrator in the same way as 2.0, so saying you can't ban an a...

However to deal with the fact that most people don't know this, if you have the port set to 80 and cookie_secure is true it will assume https anyway without you needing to change it
