Filmspotting Has a New Home Website
« on: April 02, 2017, 03:34:05 PM »
Adam created a new website for Filmspotting.  It doesn't have 100% of the content from the old site yet, but that will be a work in progress and the old site will remain live. He welcomes any feedback/suggestions 

Is anyone out there aware of a new message board system we should be considering. This one is not only pretty old but it's really not mobile friendly at all. Or if not aware, does somebody want to take the lead on researching a new one?

We could upgrade/tweak SMF to be more mobile-friendly, I believe. That'd be my preference, probably.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Is there nothing out there that would be mobile-ready from the start?

I don't know much about what's under the hood as such.

Maybe here can help a little?

For me the board works okay as it is on mobile units. If there is an upgrade in any form I would appreciate:
  • the possibility to flag threads
  • the possibility to save drafts, or have som kind of note function

All this are minor, however. What's not, is the big "Thank's a lot!" that all of you moderators deserve! :)
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

This. Also, as usual, if we're moving away from the current software, the possibility to tag people to a comment.

And maybe a better search system...

I'll concur that the boards work fine on mobile for me too. I hope if things do change that the new software is something that has a mobile style sheet as an option, not as the only way to browse or something that changes based on the size of the window, as I find most mobile design to be more cumbersome even on mobile.

All this are minor, however. What's not, is the big "Thank's a lot!" that all of you moderators deserve! :)
This too.

The new website looks really flashy.  Got that new website smell.  Great job, Adam.

New website looks cool. However, since yesterday I've been getting an error on the "unread topics" page for the forum, which I'm guessing has something to do with the new site ?

Nope.  Nothing to do with the new site.
