A few things:
  • The rules about 10 posts before linking images and links sucks. I realize that you want contributions and see the value in making that a requirement, but on the flip side of that, when you have a new user who might be simply looking for an answer to a question, and they need to post an image in order to make their point clear, it should be allowed.
  • Allow the user's session length to be longer, especially when logging in with a BB. It's a pain to have to login every time.
  • Include a link for "last page" when looking at a thread from a BB, instead of "next page" only. Even when "maximum posts per page" is set to a maximum of 30, it would be nice to be able to look at the most recent posts quickly, rather than having to scroll through pages of posts just to get to the end.
  • Image option settings within my prefs on the mobile site aren't sticking
  • WAP options are not sticking for me either. Something I'm doing wrong maybe?
  • Replies to posts would be nice to see

I really like the mobile site, it definitely has a lot of features! I'm using SMF myself, so I'll definitely be looking at how I can extend the capabilities of my WAP site.

Unfortunately the wide world of Spam I think is what really motivates this policy, and I would say I have to agree with it.

To get to the end, at the top of the page in the thread you will see a Page 1 of 13 or however many pages. Click on that link and it will take you to a screen where you can type in the last page and jump to it. So in this case, type 13 and you go to page 13.

Milkman, now that it has been put in perspective, I totally agree with it as well, and since my board is only half a year old, and not as popular as some forums, I haven't seen spam yet (phew). I'll probably have to implement the same rule.

rjw3000, thanks for the tip! It wasn't totally apparent, but I see what you're talking about now. Also at the bottom of the page I see option 2 post order DESC, missed it before.

Really like the spell checker, it rocks!
