Forum Improvement Suggestions

Post by blueberry » 20 Sep 2007, 01:18

I'd suggest some hacks for phpbb 2.0 to make the growing forum more lucid:

1.) Last Post Topic on Index

http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/566

2.) Last Post under Forum Description


http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/5522

3.) Upload Pic


http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/5782

(Might be useful to upload Pictures directly to the Server instead of Linking to Domains; they could change and some Pictures might be gone)


Browse http://www.phpbbhacks.com/ for more Hacks, maybe you'll find useful ones for the administration of the forum too.

I've had good expierences using this hacks, 1.) and 2.) i tested myself and they'll make the Frontpage less confusing and its easier to find new Topics.

...and they're easily to apply too

I don't recommend phpbb2 hacks, they add vulnribilities to a board, infact, that's how PHPBB2 really got it's bad rep with hacks. The base only has 6 vulnribilities itself.

IMHO we need a skin change, bad. I love subsilver. :'(

Depends on the hacks i think, the first two i suggested just print out some useful information and wont be a security risk :)

As far as i know, the latest stable version is quite safe too (otherwise Platyna wont use it).

We're just waiting for a stable release of phpBB3. Then we'll see about adding some mods, possibly also made by us to integrate with tmwserv.

sure it works, but unfortunately its not activated in the tmw-forum... (or its not included at all in "our" version)

Just so people know, phpBB2 mods will not work with phpBB3, phpBB3 was pretty much a wrote from scratch.
It also uses a new modular system for MOD's called MODX.
phpBB3 default features.

None of those three mods get my approval.

The RSS might benefit a few, though.
This message used to be meaningful.

Is there something I'm missing to activate RSS?
