Thx Chris for letting me play too :)



- Static pages and portal missing : bug or feature ?
- custom icon for browser tab ? Sofar we have the T(apatalk)) custom icon
- Custom Bbcodes missing. I use them a lot
- Like (thanks) mod (not so important, but popular)
- Mobile skin (for those who do not use Tapatalk) : may be an issue for some users who don't own or don't like Tapatalk
- Topics titles on 2 lines (title + poster) is too space demanding. Maybe a question of skin ?
- Foreign languages don't work (chose french in the settings)
- Skin for the whole forum ? So far we can choose forum by forum (I see 4 available skins)
- The forums I created don't show, although present in the ACP once created. Same for subforums and categories.
- Forum image doesn't work (no menu to upload one)
- if changing the skin, some forums won't show their content (white page) : for exampe TapatalkAMP skin
- Can't see birthdays although enabled
- forum banner uploadable ?
- don't like the forced round avatar shape : a question of skin ?
- popup messages after an action are cool :)
- what's a GRavatar ?

So far, I know we're in an early stage.

Continuing to test. I'm particularly interested in the user settings and rights

Wow, just wow. Kudos to you! Thank you thank you.
I can't reply to each individual item (yet), but I will soon, and I'll also check out the things you reported. Very nicely done!
By the way, I'll be over on that board to do some testing, so don't get scared if you suddenly see things change, that would be me 🐱

Sure, it's there for this.
:)
Maybe some features are missing because it's not a regular forum, I don't know.

- what's a GRavatar ?
If you sign up for a Gravatar account, and upload a avatar on their website, platforms that use Gravatar can change your avatar to the image you uploaded, after you type in your email address. That way, you don't have to keep uploading your avatar when you join a new forum. :)

So far no donation link.
Will you keep the same donation system ? (to earn credits to purchase features)

I don't have the answer to that question yet, but that is why we only accommodate non paid forums in this phase.

I can see all forums now, after having changed permissions. I guess these were messed up.
So it may be difficult for me to bring feedback, knowing I am not playing exactly in the same field :(

French language seems to work, if set in the UCP. Does not have effect if set in the forum settings through ACP

Back to customs BBcode : today they enable inserting preallocated html code, I use them a lot (for instance to embed objects or websites), it would be a huge loss if not implemented

You know what, I have another test board somewhere. I'll have to dig it up, and I'll ask the technical team to put it on the new platform. I'll let you know when done, then reply to your email, and I'll give you an admin account.
