« on: August 07, 2019, 06:09:54 PM »
I know there was an unofficial one some time ago here but has one ever been created by the team or planned on adding one?

No, and no. The argument is always reduced to “just use SSI” even when it’s not particularly relevant.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

I'm going to pass this to the devs because we're on 2019 now and we tend to be modern :)

Thanks, and good to see you Jeff.

Yes, let’s delay 2.1 even more.

Yes but if you’re pushing it into 2.1 you delay 2.1.

No for 2.1 since its too late for adding such feature.

Next version?  yes of course.
