Is scheduled to be in 3.3
You will probably be disappointed - there is planned a new style which will be totally different to the 3.2 style and, from what little I know, will not be compatible. I have no knowledge as to whether there will be backward compatibility with a prosilver style - if not then most extensions will not work.
Nope, and it's an asinine platform. I don't recommend it.
I've been a big fan of phpBB since around 2004 but I moved to XF back in 2013 because at the time phpBB3 3.1 was taking eons to arrive (we'd been waiting for over 4 years for it) and by that point phpBB 3.0 had become severely outdated compared to competitors who had started using AJAX and alert systems first. With no clear timeline for 3.1 to arrive, I jumped ship and ported my forum. I'm not going to argue the reasons why you're wrong about XF because I don't want to sound promotional, but I will say I think you're mistaken.
The suggested features in the OP are all great ideas, especially 2FA for security and one-click upgrades for the forums and add-ons. I'd like to see phpBB get feature parity with some of the other board systems out there like XF, WBB, etc. Implementing new features would go a long way.koraldon wrote: ↑Thu Apr 19, 2018 7:18 pmJust finished updating from 3.1 to 3.2, so as a game, here are the three things I would like to see most in 3.3:
- One click update for phpbb. While the current process is not too complicated, it is cumbersome and takes time with room for mistakes. Really missed my joomla one-click update
- Install/update extension by uploading a single (zip) file / one click update for extensions. I had ~20 extensions and it was a slug to update them all (Disable, delete, upload, enable). That's before Installing new extensions.
- Built-in mentions. I miss this so much in phpbb and as a basic tenet should be in core. The current extension has conflicts with other extensions, which obviously would not happen if it was in core.
A lot of my users are really big on email notifications, to the point where if they don't get an email (due to a mail system error or something), they don't check the forum. But everyone's got smartphones now and email has become a unwanted middleman between my forum and their phone's notification system. The point is that how you use your forum isn't true for everyone and we need to anticipate future (or current) trends better.Push notifications? Nah, I visit my boards(s) regularly, that's what they're there for. If everybody sat waiting for notifications to pop up nobody would ever visit.
The majority of people on this board are not against a WYSIWYG editor as an option - the problem is that those who have been working on this for some years now cannot get it to work with the quotes system in phpBB. If you want all the details the nip over to area51 where there is all the discussion.Wes of StarArmy wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 1:05 pmWhen people ask for WYSIWYG they're probably asking for the option, not to completely replace the traditional phpBB posting method. The other forum I'm using now gives users both WYSIWYG and BBode options and they can just chose which they prefer. Choice is good! Now I can accommodate more types of users.
