Had no idea this was replied to...
SMF's theming is its most widely criticized weakness. There's a reason for this, it would be awesome to see it addressed.
It is? Whats the reason for that, in your opinion?
People who complain about it are generally pretty specific - that it's obtuse to design themes for. This in and of itself could be fine, if it was in fact not so obtuse as to say, require you to edit one of SMF's most criticals file just to alter the menu.
Does anybody actually disable js these days? [Unknown] was musing last year that we should really be requiring js these days, because of the obvious benefits (security being one of them).
None that aren't either a) bots or b) using something like noscript. It wouldn't be any upset to require it.
Not my call, I was asking the topic starter.
I have no idea what you're referring to. Not once in this thread have I mentioned AJAX.
Most of what I discussed in my first post is still fully valid, two and a half years later. For example: What are PM options doing as part of theme options?
Right now, though, I'm working on my own software based on what was discussed for the Youracore project. I'll continue to work on SMF optimization notes and such as long as my forums still run SMF, but my vision for communities is not shared by the team here. Which is perfectly fine, but I don't feel like getting heated over it.
