If CSS/JS files are consistently used together, they can be merged.

Previously we tried to automatically detect what CSS/JS files were used on the home page. However, it was over-complex and unstable when caching is involved, making it very difficult to debug and making the code horrible.

A better ap…

They offer a free tier (I don't believe they did so before).
They provide support for defining terms... so we could provide some kind of editable master-list of terms that should not be translated.

Current LDAP support just assumes the original LDAP protocol, with no encryption layer.

PHP has functionality for STARTTLS:

It's undocumented, but usage seems straight forward.

An option (or even unofficial hidden option) could be added to s…

See Safari's announcement:
https://webkit.org/blog/8718/new-webkit-features-in-safari-12-1/

You can make a website light/dark based on media queries. This would be a really cool feature for Composr's default theme.

Currently it's non-standardised.

What is exciting to me is that this may be cool e…

At this time I think only Safari supports it, so it's very early days. It is interesting though.

Little known trick that PHP's isset can take multiple arguments:

Employ this where appropriate in our code.

core_database_drivers: Cleanup queries so can_arbitrary_groupby/remove_duplicate_rows

Raised 0% of 24 credits
(24 credits = 4 hours or $159.57)

In various places we use can_arbitrary_groupby and/or remove_duplicate_rows to strip out duplicated rows coming out of SQL queries.

This is because doing JOINs on tables will multiply up rows on the main table being queried, if the joined table has multiple matching records.
For example, if you are usi…

Allow configuring a whitelist (series of regexps) specifying what URLs may be static-cached.

This is to preserve disk space, bots may generate lots of invalid URLs and hence fill up the static cache with junk.

Allow DNS entries, and multiple values, in the backdoor_ip setting.

DNS queries may be better due to dyndns, while users often aren't truly on static IPs, or may want a working backdoor as they move locations. As for security improvement: this is debatable as there are such things as DNS-poisoning attac…

Allow importing galleries from an on-disk directory structure, just like we currently support for the downloads system.
