Re: phpBB or MyBB

Looking at a Wedge I don't see much that puts us "way behind" them especially since they're just getting started after 7 man-years of work. Considering the changes since their fork from SMF, they're pretty fast guys. I'm sure if we were able to pay developers full-time to work on phpBB we could hav...

Re: phpBB or MyBB

In terms of style and features, phpBB and MyBB are way behind Wedge and some of the commercial board systems. But they are much more extensible yet.

Maybe adding some upgrade.xml would be fine. ;)

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

Because XHTML is not made for websites. This is more like a philosophical discussion, though...

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

Feel free to use </div> in HTML 5 then. ;)
Correctly nested HTML tags will be displayed properly in quite every syntax-able editor around, probably even in bloatclipse.

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

It is not quite uncommon to have deeply nested <div>s in XHTML either, not even in phpBB themes. No indentations will make you say WTF when reading them. This is, more likely, a common problem with all SGML/XML-based languages...

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

HTML 5 says you might not have to format it. With some indentations even your example would look fine. I don't say we shouldn't have formatting rules. <p>Hello here is my <strong>test 1</strong> <p class='test2'> Or my second example <div>For this explanation</div> <p>Test 3</p> Or <p>Hello here is ...

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

Readability is all about formatting. I would not say

Code: Select all

<br />
or even (correctly)

Code: Select all

<br></br>
is more readable than

Code: Select all

It is an advantage to be compliant with web standards. XHTML is not really meant to be an HTML replacement, that's why,

Re: Why do we need XHTML compliance?

Basically, HTML 5 is a quite common standard these days, even used on YouTube and similar sites. :)
But thank you for the explanation. I was just wondering if these rules could be stretched a bit because of current web evolvement. :)

Why do we need XHTML compliance?

JRSweets told me that phpBB mods are required to be valid XHTML if they are to be integrated with proSilver/subSilver2. Now I wonder why; actually, HTML (as in HTML 5) is the future of the web, XHTML was never meant to be a replacement in web design concerns.

Any deeper thoughts on that?

May I ask for SVN commit permissions? Just merging my language file with latest changes and found another bunch of grammar errors in the English locales.
