sorry, but we're not going to support every forum reader app out there, because each of those addons is a security risk and messing directly with the DB instead of using myBB stuff. Instead we're working on implementing a mobile theme: http://www.mybbgm.com (improved and made look nicer ofc)

Forumrunner was bought by vBulletin (Internet Brands).
I'm sure they'll screw up Forumrunner like they did vB4.

I'd avoid it.

Well, mobile theme would be, in fact, even better solution ! Smile

is this a possibility?

Is there any visible difference between old and new posts?

Yes all new posts should be in bold.

Also a quick tip for using the forum

- You can auto subscribe to threads that you post in. Its really helpful to keep track of topics that are replied to. Just go to your username in the top right >> control panel >> edit options >> default thread subscription mode >> no email notification. Then when you use the forums and want to check new replies just go to Username in top right >> subscribed threads.

One thing I've noticed that happens here and not other forums/sites is when going back your previous position isn't remembered and you always start at the top of the page.

Yes. It's annoying. I didn't think that it was like that in the beginning of this new forum....

Would it be possible to shorten the minimum length of the search terms on the forum?

Currently the term must be 4-letters long, but I think that a lower number (probably 3-letters) would be better, and could help lessen the need to repeat answers. There are lots of 3-letter words that it'd be useful to be able to search for in relation to XBMC - e.g. arm, atv, ios, bbc, 4od, afp, smb, nfs... the list goes on!

An example that I am thinking of (and one I have just come across now) where this would be useful is where someone wants to know why an addon isn't working on a particular platform (e.g. iOS, OSX). The natural thing to do to find that information would be to search the addon thread with the name that denotes the platform, but if that name is only 3-letters long, you can't search for it. That's just one example, I'm sure that there are dozens of other examples where it would be helpful to be able to search for 3-letter words.

Would it be possible to change this?

Hi - I just checked the settings, and minimun search word length is currently 3 - strange that the search itself tells it would be 4. Need to check that

how can I move the single post to a new thread? This was easy with older forum and earlier it was working in new one, IIRC.

As an example - user post about skin MOD specific stuff in skin general support thread and I want to move it to a dedicated thread to avoid "spamming" most of the users with specific questions they are not interested in reading.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

"Inline Post Moderation:" -> "Split Posts"?

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
