SMF3?
« on: December 13, 2011, 10:26:17 PM »
Just wondering if there will be one.  I remember SMF saying the time frames would be faster after the change to BSD license but haven't seen any talk of even an alpha being worked on?

2.1 is not 2.0. 2.1 will have new features etc before it is released.

Many things are in discussion on what to include in SMF2.1. Once we have that list, you will get it soon thereafter. :)

I hope the posted urls are shortened, can't think of any other forum software that doesn't already do that, hell even phpbb3 does it

Anyway from whats been said it sounds like 2.1 is just in the head stage at the minute, I just hope its not years

Why? Short urls are irrelevant.

I'm happy with the current url format, I don't see any reason to change them.

It's all about making posts look smart and huge urls in links doesn't do that which is why all the other forums shorten them.  I think you may be forgetting that SEO can make some links huge

what "all the other forums" do is not actually a reason to consider something.

No one looks at URLs... they copy/paste or link using the "like" buttons.
If you care that much, then install the pretty urls mod...   but, seriously, search engines don't give two hoots and thus, the URL has little, if any, effect on SEO

i think they mean urls like http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=462326.msg3232328#new get converted into something like http://www.simplemachines.org/community/..... without showing the whole url,

which, as I said, is pointless and actually impossible...   there has to be some unique url for each message

not in the browser, but when you actually post the url it is shortened

I guess he is referring to SEO friendly URLs. If he is then its hardly an irrelevant and pointless feature.
