First off - sorry for the mid-evening update, I woefully underestimated the time required. I promise more notice next time.

I did want to point out that the new forum software allows folks to Tweet a post, as well as share/like a post via Facebook.

Enjoy!

I wondered what the "social networking" blocked by admin message was at the bottom of the forums (at work) smile

Have you ever heard of a board plugin called tapatalk?

I have - I've seen it in use on one of the other boards I frequent, but with mixed results. Unfortunately Tapatalk doesn't support UBBThreads.

From the Tapatalk site: (http://www.tapatalk.com/plugin.php)

Q: Which forum system does it currently support?
A: Currently phpBB3 3.0.x, vBulletin 3.7.x/3.8.x/4.0.x, Invision Power Board (IPB) 3.0.x and Simple Machine Forum (SMF) 1.1.x/2.0.x are supported.

Ahh, too bad, I downloaded the android app and found a couple other forums, was hoping this one would be too.

Alex, they've been on for some time.

I should note that the mods have them set to new posts only, not recent replies. My Firefox location bar shows a feed subscription icon for each forum.

Edit Reason: adding details.

Ah, I see now. Thank you (I was looking for a dedicated link on the page). It is sad that you can not see new posts, and in fact all you can see in the feed is just a topic subject, poster name and "read more online" link. That's useless. Is there any chance it could be improved?

I wonder if changing it to include all replies would help. That'd be something for Doug_Ritter, Blast and martinfocazio to weigh in on. Sadly, I don't write the software (and any modifications to the PHP generally go "unsupported"), I just implement it.
