I found a bug: On the Edit profile page, the Location field appears five times.

While at it:
On the Edit global settings page, in the My language list, non-ASCII characters are all borked up.
I think it's a character encoding problem.
And it seems to me that this setting does not do anything, the settings page still appears in English even if I set a different language.

It seems I'm building up a list of things to do...
It's theoretically possible that updating the board to phpBB 3.2 will help for the bugs in the forum configuration pages. Maybe we should do that soon in any case.
When we do the update, I could also look at replacing the AJAX chat frame.

Which version is currently installed? I don't see it anywhere, not even in the HTML source.

BTW, here is a list of new features in 3.2: https://www.phpbb.com/about/launch/
Looks like it finally can "show a link to the quoted post" (without mods, that is).
(Andrew asked for this here and here.)

Example: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... #p14718621

Yet it hasn't been used by anyone since August 2015.

Maybe because it requires separate login and that's too bothersome?
I don't even remember what my (Chat) password is...
(But I still have the PM with it, titled "shoutbox user/pass". I can log in with those.)

Probably not shown publicly for security reasons.

Yeah, that's a manual implementation. :)


It looks like the forum does not support non-BMP Unicode characters, for example most emojis.
If I try to use some, I get this: "Your message contains the following unsupported characters:"
HTML character entities don't work, either: 🤴

phpBB's new features page mentioned something about emojis, though...

BTW, I wonder what happens to quotes in existing posts when phpBB is updated to a version that links to the quoted post.
