Please be aware that there is minimal/no support for any non-release version of SMF. If you run into an issue, you'll have to solve it yourself.

You can download SMF 2.1 Alpha (Nightly) here

When I download this package, I find out I have one downloaded from June 24, 2013. It's seem that SMF has no more development plan? is this project stopped?

Weird... I downloaded from same link and I got 26.09.2014 build (which is last push made by me), as I checked SSI.php it shows Beta 1*, if there is an error its from GitHub.

* Beta 1 not released officially we are preparing it just file name changes! You'll see official announcement about SMF 2.1 Beta 1 here.

Well... I guess the only way, would be to install it and take a look. If you have a test site, you could do that, fairly easily, I believe.

Or, I know of a live 2.1 site, which you could take a look at.

I looked at this site on the tablet. There's a lot of small elements for navigation.

This might be more reliable in that case.

And an up-to-date test site...

Try to get a finger in the items on a tablet or smartphone screen. Why not make regular buttons instead of text links and arrows?


Look here, for example

Arantor

You realise those 'regular buttons' are *also* just links, right? It's purely a styling thing, rather than anything else.

Ok. But it's more usable styling thing then SMF default theme have.

Arantor

No disagreement from me, but I also know that the way SMF expands when you press the ... button makes this very much non-ideal to work with.

Not sure that a lot of people use ... button. I don't know, why would I want to go to page 123 of 234 :). And I still need a lot of clicks to get to page 123.
Maybe, it's time to change this button to something new?

Arantor

It's not my place to say whether a lot of people use it or not. Fact is, it's a barrier to doing something with this as it currently stands.

Good luck convincing people this needs changing, though...

gorbi

Can make at least the Increase font?

Antechinus

Yes you can do that, but having lots of tiny stuff all over the place is traditional. :D

Beats me why it still has the text that says "Pages:". It's obviously a page index. Everyone knows how they work these days. That text is a waste of space.

Gotta agree on that.

Change is irrelevant. Resistance is futile. Your frustrations will be assimiliated.

(isn't that how it goes?)

Next time I will have to put a huge-ass sign saying "I'm being funny", yes?
