i like phpBB but....

Post by clio » Sat Oct 13, 2001 12:01 am

I would like to be able to see the last x replies to a thread when I'm replying so I know what I'm replying to. Most boards have that, you know. ;)

Also, where's the latest subBlue templates? CVS? any changes since last week? I have some quirks and errors in my forums. :(

also the announcements system is a bit flawed. I liked the vb style where you could just make announcements thru the admin panel and select which forums they appear in. I don't want to have to make an announcement in EVERY forum. that'll take too long. :(

Per the Finn, Topic Review will be in 2.0 when it goes gold. So you have no worries there...

We have provisions in the code for global announcements, but thus far we havn't worked out exactly how we're going to do it.

It's on the list for features included in the next release.

Global announcements work in view forum, but not in view topic. In theory, though, it wouldn't be too hard to implement. If you want to see, just set the forum_id of an announcement to -1. Enjoy!

Global announcements don't work at all at present ... and they may slip into 2.2, depends how work elsewhere goes.

When you call a php script, variables can be passed to the page through the url, as in url?var=this&var=that... set the appropriate variable to the appropriate value (sorry, I forgot what it was, it's late) in the URL, or just mess with it on your own board. Either way, global announcement has to go a little bit below things like, say, the install script, so I'm afraid some of the streamlining type features may not even make it into 2.2. (Not that I'm in any way qualified to say, nor should you take my word as fact, educated guess, or even remotely informed)
I am no longer doing any phpBB related projects. Except Vertex, which is only a front for Sphereal.
