We have this line of code limiting when we send out accurate HTTP status codes:

if ((!headers_sent()) && (function_exists('browser_matches')) && (!browser_matches('ie')) && (strpos(cms_srv('SERVER_SOFTWARE'), 'IIS') === false)) {

The reason is that...

1) IE has traditionally replaced our HTTP outp…

Currently if you access a misnamed page it will suggest the correct name. Have something similar if the module exists, but in a different zone.

A user requested the remember me checkbox to remember if it is unchecked, which would need a 'cookie'. Due to EU privacy legislation that's tricky, but we can make it optional as an addition possibility in the remember_me_by_default option (and the site-wide cookie opt-in feature can be used to give legal…

I think the random hex guest ids generated for guests should be made clear in the chat room, especially knowing what your own guest ID is. This would help when guests are trying to refer to other guests in the chat.

Say I'm guest 00000 and there's a guest 00001 that wants to refer to me without confusin…

core_database_drivers: Deprecate MyISAM; use INNODB (on hold)

Currently, Composr uses the MyISAM database engine for MySQL installations. MyISAM is no longer maintained and probably should not be used.

Instead, Composr should use the INNODB engine as it has active development and has some performance improvements over MyISAM (for large sites).

Have a search block parameter that will automatically add quotes around search terms if not included.

This is useful if a particular search context always needs to respect word order, but the users can't be expected to know to add the quotes.

I think it is a nice feature to have some form of "Topic author" indicator on posts made by the author of a topic in cns_forums. That way, it's easy to distinguish who the topic author is without having to go back to the first post. It also gives eye prevalence to replies made by the author.

This is useful as it serves a function similar to 'album art'.

Make two new options for the blocking system. Allow the ability for staff to prohibit the ability of members being able to block staff (communication blocking implication if they do), and to prohibit staff from being able to block any members (again, communication block implication... also widely considere…

If more than 75% of all other downloads have a particular license set, default new downloads to use that same license.
