Hello Sniper_E, okay, my first test: First friendly arguments.
In my opinion, the query in the CR container for the style author(s) is now missing. It is suggested that a design (style) could be created by phpBB-com and this is not always true. In my opinion it can be leads to conflicts.
* These can have different requirements from country to country and especially from one style to another. In addition, third party copyright, design rights and other intellectual property rights must be protected to avoid litigation.
The query from the style.cfg ... (?) ...
# General Information about this style
and *) further more information would be required at least depending on the individual case.
For example, in some of my styles, important CRs that affect third party rights have now been deleted / overwritten. As a style author, I must therefore disclaim any infringement of trademark rights, licences, etc. and exclude any liability on my part if extensions are used which infringe the rights of third parties.
Otherwise, style authors would have to modify the CR or this extension would have to support numerous style queries from the EXT developer.
Furthermore, phpBB-CRs are now displayed twice (CREDIT_LINE, TRANSLATION_INFO) if designers had rebuilt the overall_footer.html (standard-CRs).
In my opinion, the query of styles that can be listed and edited via ACP is missing.
I don't like to think that phpBB is not able to perform correct queries via events.
The authors of extensions should perhaps get used to not placing their CRs directly in the overall_footer.html but outputting it within their EXT (on click or when in use).
Or should all EXT authors rewrite their CRs, otherwise the container "page-footer-nocredits" will remain contentless, unless those EXT authors participate in this point?
In my opinion, phpBB is capable of creating such an EXT-CR container in CORE, which could be switched on by the operator (admin) at his own request.
Obviously, it is (the same) EXT authors who return in this way. Their extensions are to the detriment of those who adhere to CRs and licences, as the "page-footer" class is now overwritten per event, with other events and rules in it.
I think you can fix this design flaw.
