  • As an act of compromise given the slow development of 2.0, the team are currently focusing on 1.10, which is a new feature version that starts to bring modern standards to MyBB's legacy codebase. It also brings new features, such as a responsive theme, alerts, etc. Sugegstions for 1.10 can be found here: https://community.mybb.com/forum-199.html
  • Again, see the above suggestions forum, and the planned features subforum: https://community.mybb.com/forum-194.html
  • MyAlerts is fairly basic, but it is still mostly maintained whenever it breaks. The plan it to integrate alerts with the core of 1.10, which would massively improve it and lead to there being better support for it as a core feature.

Thank you, I didn't see the post, I'll try to participate a bit more in those threads.

I think it just makes them behind the curve. They dropped the ball when it came to choose a plan to 2.0. Instead of focusing on using frameworks and libraries they should have 100% focused on mobile.

Even now, I think they should stop caring about everything except mobile compatibility for 1.10. Everything else, and I mean everything, is unimportant.

Being neat and clever aren't cutting it. Admins need mobile and we need it now. I think MyBB team understands this but they get caught up in the weeds by allowing other parts of development to be involved.

No one honestly cares about anything except having a base design that's responsive. Everything else is backend mumbo-jumbo that's either specific to certain forums or can be done with plugins.

We don't want to see 1.10 break more plugins either. Bad enough to deal with all the template/theme issues but then having to rewrite plugins for things like php 7 compatibility seem secondary to the real need for mobile readiness.

For the most part I don't think the bulk of admins care if the code base uses older standards. Our site visitors don't care either. The big 1.8x difference to members was the use of jQuery but I'll be honest, I think it's poorly done for the most part. My members honestly enjoyed the function of 1.6x better and had no problems with it. Sure Jquery does offer more opportunities and it's nice it was added but did it really improve user experience over the older code? I don't think it did.

There is a certain loss of vision imho when it comes to how the team moves forward with their development plans. You make a plan that makes sense and is doable. Then you go at it and make it happen. What you don't do is sort of think about maybe get opinions then one day code some and more wait wait wait okay maybe blah blah...then nothing.

Put the responsive theme on the top of the list for 1.10 and begin the work. Stop doing anything that isn't part of that goal.

I wonder who is going to agree with me?

Well, I'm not a developer but I can understand my users needs. 100% that mobile is top priority. The frontend is the problem really, and what my users care about is about user experience.

I don't think that any of them care if I use another template system. They want to use their mobile phones and be able to participate.

If I had to sort my priorities it would be: 1) Mobile 2) MyAlerts as default. 3) Everything else.
