OK but I won't be using it
« on: May 26, 2014, 10:10:41 am »
With Tapatalk's recent security cross scripting issue I thought going with something that is specifically developed for SMF was going to be better. I was wrong. This theme/mod is not comparable.

I see several things that make this theme not worth continued use.

With my forum having an EzPortal this theme defaults to that page and on an iPhone it is not well received as all you can see is the left side of the portal page. The menu on the portal page doesn't even allow a user to navigate to the Forum index page. I don't like having to revise EzPortal as has been suggested. This theme should do it seemlessly without my having to edit another mod on my forum. Tapatalk does this well. They recognize my forum has a portal page and they move the member seemlessly to the forum page.

Another big visual issue is with threads that have large photobucket hosted photos or threads that have YouTube video embedded into the post's view. On these you get a left partial view of the picture or video. It looks terrible. Once again, Tapatalk does this well.

Until you can seemlessly do what Tapatalk does well I won't use it. As said I thought that since this was developed for SMF it would work well. It works but not as well as I would like.

How are you embedding the YouTube video and what are you using to embed PB photos? Post a new thread in customer area and I'll see if I can add compatibility to those, and I'm fairly sure someone posted a patch for EzPortal (as linked in another one of your threads).

I will post over in the customer area. Thanks for your attention on this matter.
