Added TapaTalk Support.
For those of you unfamilar, its a Application you can install on your Android or iPhone that integrates beautifully with the forums and makes it easier for users on Mobile Devices. Let me know if you need more information on it...

That's it!

There was something I was going to request to add to the forums and I couldn't for the life of recall it, it was TapaTalk!

Thanks

Basically, it add a very user friendly experience for reading and posting on forums on your iDevice or Android device.

It's handy for keeping track of multiple forums eg if you were into English Bulldogs  ;D as well as online gaming, you'd be able to read and post etc from your mobile device.

Added:
Embedded Youtube and Other Media
When you post a URL of YouTube it will embed the youtube video instead of just posting a link

Hop over to the music video posts to see what I mean.

I'll just half to evaluate out which ones will work for us and which ones we can benefit from using.

Thanks NOOB.
I'd love to delicate some things for you to work on, but usually by the time I'd get done explaining it, I can usually already be half way done with it.
I program in many different scripting and programming languages so I'm quite versatile in implementing things on multiple plat forums.
What languages, databases, and other resources do you typically work with?

PS. Fixed the TapaTalk setup, it wasn't working at first. I didn't realize it until I tried connecting to it while was out of the house...

However, what I can not fix is the crappy TapaTalk free app.
Those bastards, I paid for TapaTalk way back in the day when it was first booming. Well the decided to change the name and discontinue development on the product I once purchase and now opened it up to everyone as free... And renamed their newly update one to PRO forcing me to pay for a new one.. I think not..

If anyone has an alternative application that they can think of that supports SMF Forums, let me know!

Found ForumRunner, but they don't have SMF support.

Found a SMF Mobile Theme: http://smf-media.com/index.php/detailed-overview but it costs $20 bucks for a year and I'm not sure if that many people will even use it. (Chime In)

Multi-Quote

This makes the process a little easier, so as your ready a thread, you can click on button "Add Multi-Quote" then when you click reply it will add everything for you...
The plugin requires cookies and java script to be enabled.. (usually enabled by default)

Ok. You must be this tall to ride this ride!
I'll have to look at the permissions. I probably have to allow certian people or groups to be able to use it.
Title: Re: Website Update - In Progress

Confirmed - Its a Permissions Issue.... Working On It..

Permission Issues Fixed - I Think.
I only allowed Technetic Clan Members...
Let me know if it works...

Also, do you think we should allow new members to have access to the chat feature?
Title: Re: Website Update - In Progress
Post by: sore piles on March 21, 2014, 04:00:19 pm
Chat's working,

I say why not let new members have access, we're promoting ourselves as a friendly mature gaming community, let's live up to that.
Title: Re: Website Update - In Progress
Post by: el toro on March 21, 2014, 04:05:24 pm
You could have two rooms, one being members only, the other one a general audience for anyone.

If you open it up for everyone, better post some rules and give some kick permissions.

True.. Ok I'll work on that...

It actually creates a bunch of rooms based on the different sections...
So we got that covered as well..

I agree.. I will have to test those things out and see how we want to monitor it.

If on an iPhone got to the AppStore and Search for TapaTalk. You will need to have a AppleID or Itunes ID to start downloading.
If on an Android, go to the google play store and search for TapaTalk and install it. You can also login to your gmail account on a PC and then navigate over to google.com/play and search and it will allow you to install it your phone from the site..

Once you have the application installed.

Search for a forum and enter Technetic and it should come up.

P.S Posted using the Multi-Quote Utility! - Very Nice - Great Success!

Well I didn't build the app, so I can't take credit for that. I just added the support module on to the forums so they app can utilize it and communicate with us.
