Why not add so quick reply box with function of ajax? so when you post a reply it slides the reply post under old reply, without you needing re-load or that site itself has to reload.

Also add two auth login as well so you can secure your account from any un authorized access.

Last but least, stop forum spam that can block spammers from being allowed to signup or similar. This should stop spam bots that goes around signing up with fake accounts then spams away with nosensen content that is not related to the forum.

  • Not entirely sure on the whole ajax/jQuery fast reply idea, to be honest, its more hassle than it is worth at this stage of development.
  • 2-Factor Authentication is a good idea for security reasons, and could may be added to the next major release if not before.
  • Although Stop Forum Spam is good, we already have reCaptcha as a feature (Not enabled here just yet), which does stop spam bots from registering.

reCpatcha does stop it yes, but there is still new spam bots out there that's somehow coming by the reCaptcha thing and spams away or that lately they manually sign up and then spam away. while StopForumSpam can alert you that ip/email on the account has been found matching in their spam database. Which you can then decide to reject/approve/do nothing.

I’ll take a look at it, it may be best suited as an extension though.

do that, xenforo has stop forum spam built inside their forum, already. So either as addon or built in 😊 it's up to you.
