I have a couple pbpBB2 installs that run great. I recently installed a fresh RC4 release on a new site. It was EASY to install, the documnetion was correct and I love the new features. Great job y'all!!
It's good to see Olympus getting close to release. However there's two things bothering me and which didn't change with the previous version (if someone can tell me where would be the best to post such thing which is more like a feature request, as in every subforum here and at area51 it's said "no bug report or feature request here" )
The option to show a subforum under its parent works in a completely illogical way: when you activate it, not only will it show in the parent forum, but in all the parents of this parent forum (quite strangely I didn't see much discussion about that except for a thread in the support forum). That's completely silly, and make the option next to useless when you have quite a large board (which is where the subforums become useful). There should be at least an option to show the subforums only in the direct parent...
Rules forum configuration: same here, either a subforum should take its parent rules configuration by default if nothing is set, or there should be an option for it to take the parent settings. There's not much point in having to define the same rules over your dozens of subforums, this makes no sense... (but again I saw no discussion about this through my research, which I can't understand, except if people only get like 10 forums/subforums in all their board... and even then this would make sense completely)
Well, I´ll just make a suggestion, too: Could the developers of phpBB 3 implement that the English buttons are used if specific are not available, please? For example: Let's assume I want to use the German language pack but I do not want to download and install the button package. Now phpBB should use the English standard buttons automatically.
I hope you understand what I mean.
Just one more voice added to the growing list of THANKYOU's to all you PHPB3 developers.
I've been running v2 on [spam removed - karlsemple] for a couple of years now and upgrade to phpbb3RC4 yesterday... I couldn't believe how smoothly the upgrade went and the resulting forum is just *wow* wildly better than my expectations. V3 is such a huge improvement over 2 it's going to take the web by storm...
Thanks to all!!!!!
Just goes to show that Open Source Rocks.
