If you have any ideas about features or changes that could be made, feel free to make suggestions here.   :lamp:

Any chance of Tapatalk support? I find that really handy.

Soz mate.
It's classed as a security risk, so there's no supported plugin for it.   :sad:

That's odd; it's very popular. I know another, huge, SM forum that allows it.

There are some workarounds that involve a bit of code editing, but I don't want to go down that road.

It's something to do with Tapatalk creating their own code and it does weird things like bypassing some login steps and can also allow SQL injections, which would destroy the board and require a fresh start again.

I double checked. They weren't using SM, but vBulletin.

The site before last had an excellent mobile facility. This doesn't; you just get the whole web page but tiny. Pity.

Some themes are responsive (adapt to the device) and some are not.
Sunrise is responsive and works really well on mobile devices but you're using the Core theme...which is essentially a non responsive template.  :wink:

Yes. Can't get on with Sunrise. It's antiseptic.

@ Glam,  is there a Youtube insert option anywhere for videos ? as this will take up a big quota of space on the website judging by the size of the video image ?

Just paste the raw YouTube link Harry (no BBcode needed)

I installed a plugin to handle them.
