Forum updates & features
A few points from design phase
Forum software was selected based on:
- Simple, clean appearance.
- Compatibility testing results with mobile browsers and social media apps. Some forum softwares wouldn't upload images via mobile device.
- Will automatically show links as graphics where possible (eg, YouTube videos).
- Availability of social media sign-in (not currently enabled)
- Added code to detect social media links and launch their dedicated mobile app if possible.
- Forum is public, with private sections for members whom are assigned a group role.
- Advanced comment editor allows styling of posts. Syntax is "Markdown" but some HTML code will also work.
