New functionality request

Post by kocureq » Thu Dec 24, 2009 10:43 pm

Hey,

How do I raise a new functionality / change request?

I would to have the ability to jump from moderator's activity log directly to the mentioned post, not only to topic / forum.

Your best bet is to ask for it in the MOD request forum.

I don't want to ask for a MOD, but for a functionality in the core BB.

phpBB3 is already feature-locked. There is nowhere to request a new function. Your best bet is to request a Mod.

Why is it feature-locked? There will be no more new features until phpBB4, or do you already have a complete set of features written and you're implementing it one by one in the phpBB3 updates, so nothing new gets on that list?

Please see the following announcement: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1715945
The next feature release will be 3.1.0. Minor features sometimes make it into minor versions out of necessity, but this is generally discouraged.

I wouldn't consider what you are asking for to be a feature, more of an improvement to navigation. As such, please file a bug report and make sure to mention that I suggested you do so (link to this post).

I like that. It seems like a reasonable improvement to make and a good suggestion on your part. Good job. :)

Technically, bantu said that it's most likely not doable.

I'd certainly be curious to know why he doesn't think it's doable even in 3.1.

It would require a substantial retooling of how logs are stored which could potentially break backwards compatibility (which the 3.x line attempts to maintain).

OK, but I assumed ;) logs would just hold URLs to the items. If they do things differently, I can see that it would be harder.

Not sure where you got that but he did respond with this
Moving to 3.1 as this would require another table column.
So there is, at least, hope. ;)

Well, bantu did say this:

Giving the impression that he believed that such a functionality may not be possible even in 3.1 and so on. That's probably how Pony99CA got that idea. ;)
