Haven't installed it yet but was thinking it would profit from an additional function, while reading the feature list.

It would be nice, if one could specify a time period, like a year, and if the extension would then add jobs to phpBBs job system to mask IP addresses in the database - additionally to those mentioned in the features list.

After a year of absence, one wouldn't need the IP of a users last login.
A year after a user logs in and thereby triggers a 'delete old posts routine' I wouldn't need his IP in the logs anymore
Heck, I even don't need my own IP in the logs for accessing the ACP anymore.

So, I guess for all database fields containing IPs could be masked right from the start or after a while.

phpBB 3.2.7

1. After
Reset policy acceptance: YES
get error "There are no registered paths for namespace "" in "policy_accept.html" at line 19."
can't get to ACP and can't log in
had to manually clear phpbb cache and clear browser cache and remove extension from DB

2. Enable the Privacy policy: disable
Enable the Cookie policy: disable
Show privacy/cookie policy: YES
policies link show up but polices not shown when clicked
Which is Contrary to "you can have a privacy/cookie policy without the need to have the acceptance box."

1. Block all links including ACP and Requiring policies to access ACP are bad ideas
The rational is that the admin will not report their own site to EU for not having GDPR.

phpBB 3.2.7

Another bug:
1. the select file should only list files for the selected language
it shows file for every language in the drop down all with same name

1. Policy Files Editor, Select language drop down shows languages installed for board
should show only languages installed for extension

Rational: If the UCP has not been translated in the files
  • ucp_privacypolicy.php
  • privacypolicy.php
  • info_ucp_privacypolicy.php
  • common_privacypolicy.php
then it makes no sense to just translate the policies.
