Disadvantages of phpBB Program

Good evening...
After a week's experience on the program phpBB the program in general excellent..
But there are annoying and tiring things that make the program uncomfortable for the normal user and the normal member: Example of problems: 1-Lack of support for HTML codes.
2. Lack of support for the visual editor.
3. Lack of support for YouTube.
4. Lack of support for functions within the topics and responses.
5-not to support the admirable system.
6. Do not support the Forum sort order property.

This stuff makes me back off. Using the software, I wish the software developers attention to these problems.

  1. HTML in posts is a security issue.
  2. What do you mean by visual editor?
  3. The media embed extension handles youtube and many other formats admirably.
  4. You need to expand on 4, 5 and 6, they don't make a lot of sense.
Moving to phpBB discussion.

1-Lack of support for HTML codes.
This is for security reasons and as far as I am aware there is no other BB software that allows such an option.

If by "visual editor" you mean a WYSIWYG editor then there are at least two extensions that will add that functionality.

There is an extension that will add that feature.

No idea what these are.

For all other software you put it and make the user able to activate or disable plugins can solve any problem or compensate the deficiency in any program.

I'm talking about putting the program in the default and Standard mode.
For example you have: vbulletin 5: Supports these properties without the need for Xenforo 2: Supports these properties without the need for the MYBB: supports these properties without the need for additives out I wish to develop the script to be supportive of many characteristics there are other properties I didn't mention. You are in the program

In that case then perhaps phpBB is not the correct product to fulfill your needs and you need to use one of the other products.

Nobody has ever said that phpBB is the right product for all scenarios.

I do not know why when a discussion reaches a certain point
Is the answer that the program does not meet your needs?
Why these negative answers. Why do not we all seek to solve these shortcomings instead of evading them.

Do you mean 'user' or 'board owner'? I'm not aware of users being able to turn plugins on and off in phpBB. What deficiencies? Explain some more.

You need to tell us what you're trying to do and list the 'characteristics' you're looking for.

We're not evading anything. The thing is, we don't know what the 'shortcomings' are as you haven't told us yet.

What you might consider essential, someone else might have no need for.

phpBB is constructed to be relatively feature light so that each board owner can add the extensions that they want to suit what they need. You only have to upload a folder and activate it to add a new feature.

Every computer program that I have ever used has some shortcomings so I either live with them or I move on and find something that is more suitable for my needs - it is the same with most things in life. It is not being negative - it is being pragmatic.

When we talk about the standard situation
The destination of the program without any external additions.
You find that it lacks a lot.
For example:
Friendly Links: Its usefulness is to prevent duplicate content such as what happens with dynamic links.
Site Map System: Most of the software merged maps with a program and became a basic and default feature.
Editor: Modern software has become a better editor, convenient and easy to write, insert video clips and scripts and include tweets and extracts from social networking sites
Like :
Editor vb5:

Editor xf2:

Editor mybb:

In relation to HTML property :
These are images from the program control vb3 panel
There is an option to disable and activate html

As I said, that is just your opinion on what you think it should have. That doesn't necessarily match what other people might want.

I would have no use for any of those. So if it did, I could come on here and say the software was bloated with useless extras that weren't needed. Do you see?

Some of the features mentioned above need to be master and exist in any program.
And the features that I hope to be in the program phpbb:
The system of friendly links and advanced editor.

I am sorry for your inconvenience and I did not mean to underestimate the value of the program or its worth.
I own another software license but I am looking for something distinct and different that mimic other sites

"Advanced editor" - phpBB is a discussion board software, not a word processing program.

Just for the record, the library that runs the BBCode engine (TextFormatter), allows use of certain HTML tags via plugin, it just needs to be enabled, I'm using something similar in my Markdown extension.

I mean if it became a discussion program you put the worst editor
What's that thinking?
WYSIWYG editor and HTML support most important there is no discussion programs and this is why vbulletin Software is superior to other software
