Forum updates & features

edited April 17 in Forum Discussion

A few points from design phase

Forum software was selected based on:

  • Cost.
  • 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)

Customisations:

  • 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.
