Display the version of the installed styles in acp

Post by Ideas Bot » Fri Aug 09, 2013 3:30 pm

Would be comfortable in my humble opinion see the version of the style in acp in the details, such the style name is the Copyright.

There is no such thing as "accepted" and number of votes is meaningless. Developers implement what they think is a good idea, not what has more votes.

I do like this idea and maybe I can do something about it :)

Nice idea, but do you want to see the version of style or version of phpBB the style is for? I think they can be different, so the later would be more helpful for users.

I believe correct me if I'm wrong, that the name is the copyright are extract from the file style.cfg, then I think it is convenient extracted from the file also the version the style
and view it in acp in details together to 2 mentioned.

# General Information about this style
name = prosilver
copyright = © phpBB Group, 2007
version = 3.0.11

It is prosilver, but in other styles can be something like this:

Code: Select all

# General Information about this style
name = Black Pearl
copyright = Mighty Gorgon © 2011
version = 1.6.6
It doesn't show for what version of phpBB the style is. It's maybe older version of black Pearl style (I just found it on my PC), but it should support some version of phpBB 3.0.x, but I'm are not able to tell which one. I guess there should be another line in style.cfg with version of phpBB the style is for.

style_version = 3.1.0-dev
phpbb_version = 3.1.0-dev

I think you didn't mean that.. what's the point of this section otherwise? there was already a forum called "mods in development" if someone wanted to get idea from.. :roll:

To discuss ideas and give contributors general idea of what people want. Maybe even find more contributors willing to implement some ideas.

This is only partially implemented. It is still not displayed in the list of styles, at least not in 3.2.
