Scoped out upgrading to Xenforo 1.5... Seems like it won't be too bad and some things I have plugins for now will just be built in.

Thanks Droo!
The site seems snappier.

I hadn't used Tapatalk in several months. I had forgotten my password and was doing using my phone's browser. I reset the password a couple of days ago. I'm not finding it as convenient as I used to. It's got too much extra stuff on there now and seems too needy. It's always asking me to receive notifications about everything.

There's apparently a module to bring notifications in on computers and mobile without using Tapatalk.. Mixed thoughts on its usefulness though.

I probably wouldn't bother with it. Tapatalk was most useful as a simplified interface instead of using a browser.

I have no issues with alerts or permissions from tapatalk. It asked me once when I installed and gives me alerts as appropriate. Perhaps the Android implementation is not as smooth.

I use the browser on my PC. Don't need alerts there.

Yeah that's basically how I see it. Notifications on PC is basically annoying, so any site that offers them I tell 'no'.

So far this has gone pretty smooth. I guess this means I can cancel the account with the other hosting company on Monday.

some neat new stuff like how the corner of our avatars signal online status and the new post rundown on the side of the homepage.

Those things may have been disabled in the theme by request and came back when I upgraded Casual to 1.5.14 too... Not sure. I was able to update the theme AND the whole forum at the same time.

Working on improving the old SBS site right now, then maybe I can get up to PHP 7. LOT of progress though.

Is there a way to easily embed twitter posts/videos and or facebook videos? With youtube it's a simple copy and paste.

I believe we already have embed support for at least Facebook, Dailymotion, Youtube, and a few others. Not sure if Twitter is in there. Try posting a public one and see what happens here.
