[3.0] My Thoughts on Features for SMF 2.1

<< < (12/14) > >>

D'oh. I forgot about zoom. That's an obvious workaround but it would be a nuisance.

Matthew K.:
Okay, I'm out of the house and when checking this topic I decided to actually test it on my iPhone.

- Clicking a menu with no children will result in going to that link immediately
- Clicking a menu with children will not take you to the parents URL.
- To go to a link, when the item has children you have to double-click the parent element.
- Tapping / Click makes no difference to the result.

Ah. Interesting. I'm still curious about what they are using for detection though. 


I didn't read the whole topic, sorry if I miss something that was already discussed..., but I'd like to share my feedback with you all as well.

In my opinion, SMF should just support MySQL, or have the option to select their database type on the installation.

I think this is not that relevant, I don't how is the percentage of forums not using MySQL, however certainly the bigger part of the "cake" uses MySQL. If SMF could be adapted to a object-oriented scheme, this would be much easier to handle and other SGDBs could be supported in different packages.

I believe the Calendar should not be a core-feature. I think it should be removed from the SMF Core, and completely re-written to have an AJAX/jQuery fancy interface, provided as an official addon/modification.

As calendar, I also would like to recommend the same to other functionalities. I believe SMF collects information how forum's owners use its functionalities, the less used could be made available as official modifications.

$smcFunc should be re-written as a PHP Object for easier usage, and a much shorter line-count to accomplish a much better result. Plus some more automation such as auto-data type with the ability to over-ride? For instance, with $smcFunc in 2.0, you have to declare each columns data type, such as 'field' => 'int', and so forth, but this can be figured out with PHP very easily, with no need to declare each column.

Along with the PHP Object, PDO should be implemented for data sanitation.

100% agree with this one.

Another thing that I would like to see implemented is a modular MOD structure, something alike WordPress. MOD incompatibility can become a pain in the ass to those that don't know anything about coding, I believe this would be a great improvement for SMF.

My 2cents.

PS: Sorry about my english, but I am barely awake now...
