It would be possible to implement, but I doubt we will... %-( ;)

BTW: Getting the text of the reply into the mail is possible/relatively easy,
getting the name of the person who replied strangely enough isn't...

Ok, this guy outdid you :p

Now, my wish...
Call me stupid, but I never really paid any attention to those two links "View unanswered posts | View active topics". (and I would like to if I knew what they were about)

I think a little list with the recent activity (like the one on XSIbase's front page) would be much better, if not possible, could this two be made more visible?

The "View unanswered posts" is a good place to start, if you really really really want to do a good deed and answer a question no matter what... No seriously, I hardly use it all.

Personally I have the "View active topics" on my first bookmark of the si-community, i.e. I use that page as my personal "de facto" frontpage. Changing the "View active topics" into something more usable (as in "View active POSTS") would be nice, but lacking the time and skill to dig deep into the php of the forum software I doubt this will be possible
(Partly because we can't/don't want to implement phpBB-addons any more, for various reasons).
And, again personally, I don't like the whole "frontpage" idea, like the XSIBase has, all that much. I have the XSIBase bookmarked at http://www.xsibase.com/forum/. Problematic about "frontpages" is that they need to be separately maintained.

;)

would it be to hard to implement auto-resizing of images like in some other forums out there?

I love to see people sending big images, full of details, but they do seem to disrupt browsing... Auto-resizing is a good alternative, cause you can always click the image to see all the details...

Me too. For si-community, I bookmarked active topics, and for xsibase, I bookmarked http://www.xsibase.com/forum/index.php?action=recent

To answer your initial question: I have no idea, but I will look into it (soonish)! ;)

Owei just gave the "go ahead" on this (so I removed my previous post). I will try to implement (install) this, but like I already said in my previous - now deleted - post, I won't be able to test it, as I own no mobile device that qualifies...
;)

People who want to help out testing, please contact me (by PM preferably)...

Late edit:
Okay, while I tried installing this, it seems to me this somehow messes up our own style templates. Was able to undo it just now, but only by importing backup templates. Scary stuff. Have to recover before I try again... (But I will, promise!)

Small update: under "our" hood everything should be ready now. I figured out what defaced our templates during my first attempt. But now I've run into a new problem: the website, where I should register our little community, is having technical problems, preventing me from registering our site. However, once that's fixed our beta-testers will get a PM. And if this isn't fixed soon, I'll uninstall it all again and the whole tapatalk-project dies a horrible death as far as I am concerned...
