I do not know by heart what PHP version phpBB 3.2 will require.
All I can tell you, is that I coded this extension in such a way that you atleast need PHP 5.4 or higher. Below that it will give errors and bugs.


About the friends thing, with a BIG maybe, later on. But haven't looked into it what so ever yet and still have a lot of other things to do, but I suppose everything can be looked at.

What does 'Blog Description' do?
I added description, but I can't see it anywhere..?
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

This has already been answered..

It is used as a meta description in the overall header for bots and spiders. Therefore it should be between 130 and 160 characters.
It's also possible to select to show the Description instead of the cut off blog text when the blog is longer than X amount of characters. All can be set in the ACP..

Is it possible to make it so every user has a blog?

Not sure what you mean? You can give permissions so all registered users can create a blog.
or what do you mean by 'every user has a blog' ?

Okay, I'm looking into this but still not quite sure how you envision this..

Does the author have to have them in their friends list? Or do the readers need the author in their friends list? Or do they both have to be friends of each other?

Is this a setting the Blog Author will have to choose when creating the blog or just a general option in the ACP? 'Only viewable by friends'? Or is this somehow a permission?

This is one of the most exciting extensions that I have seen - any ETA on the RC?
So we can start integrating it into our forums :)

p.s. does it have version check?

Hey Posey

Just wondering if there will be a migration feature? i.e I currently have some content on a wordpress blog and wanted to migrate it over to the phpbb blog (when its complete)
would there be a way to do this?

Content to migrate:
Date/time
User ID
Subject
Post
Labels

__________________________________________________
Also I haven't really taken a full look on this yet but does this also have the option to insert an image into the teaser? (like the topic list)
web admin at several websites including

Yes, there is a version check present.
No, there is no ETA on a RC. And even if there was, a RC is still not a validated extension so you should then still not use it on your live board, wait till it is in the Extensions Database.

I do not have a way to migrate existing blogs into this one. I can tell you the database columns for the blog database if that helps, but that's about it.

Is there any way to break up the blogs like www.website.com/blog?user=nero to show only blogs by the certain user?

I'm in the process of uploading a new version and that has Viewprofile information on how many blog posts and blog comments a user made and you can search those:

Where are they not parsing? New blog entries, comments? Or when creating a category in the ACP?
Stating the obvious: you sure you ticked the boxes 'Parse BBCode' and 'Parse smilies'?

I've PM'd MichaelC about me writing a Blog Extension and if he was okay with it, quite a while ago. I have not yet received a reply. I know they're very busy with I don't know what not.. So I've started writing a blog extension. I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes by doing so, if so: let me know. So if Michael, or phpBB for that matter, want to pick up their 'phpBB Blog' again I'll abandon this one.
There is always room for other's work, you just kep on keep'in on

it works well on my sandbox site, am anxious and waiting patiently for pending images update.

Many thanks
