I am starting to hear that quote in my head when I make my once a month visit to see if there is any progress.

I just got off the phone with SirDude. My confidence in UBB has been fully restored. I think the owner would gain a lot of PR and sales value if he would jump in here once a month at least and say hello, but that is neither here nor there.

Guess I'll be sticking around for another 10 or 12 years. Do I get a medal when I hit the 25 year mark?

I feel like they are going to stick with it and that's really all I needed to know. One or two upgrades a year and I am happy. Hopefully something Tapatalk not too far down the road, but really, our forums don't look too bad on iPhone and look great in iPad.

Evidently, they see no need to respond since we are nothing but a small segment of the customer base and thus of no consequence. Any noise that is made here falls on deaf ears beyond us peons.

Thanks for finally communicating to us who are more than anxious to learn what is going on with UBBThreads. However, not knowing that "SEO tweaks" is referring to, what I see as missing is all the lauded front end improvements and additions which have been posted here many months ago and which most of us here have expected long before now since the last report we got was that all was finished except for the "Installer".

Dangling carrots lose their appeal after awhile and certainly don't equal a full meal.

Can you give us a tentative timeline for the mentioned update, e.g., 1 month, 2 months, etc., barring any problems, which are certainly understandable?

Thanks!

Mobile friendly (iphone/android/WP7) templates based on user-agent would be nice or at least TapaTalk compatible. Also mentioned, Ajax. And more version numbers. We always want more version numbers whistle

THANKS MARK!

I had a great party of celebration for the 5th Year Anniversary of the announcement of the next version.

HOWEVER turns out I was the only one left to celebrate that magnificent historical event.

The Ghost of users past, may have removed that post celebrating this.

I'm sad to hear that's the route we're going; IMHO Tapatalk would have been a better alternative by way of allowing sites to be integrated into mobile devices by ultimately making their site an app on a users phone/tablet through the Tapatalk program.

twitter bootstrap ?
I've not heard of that one, ive just Googled it and it doesn't give too much away.

Am i correct in thinking if it was tapatalk the configuring is on the phone.
And with Bootstrap its all in the CSS which ultimately falls to us to configure and tweak.

How will Stan cope ?

http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/

Can you not make it both if there are equal arguments for both types Boostrap & TapaTalk ?

The Update : TapaTalk Update

"As soon as 7.6 is out, we will be developing the Tapatalk mobile interface which should not take long at all."

I researched this myself a small bit.

It used to be called Twitter blueprint.
Developed by Twitter

From what I can tell tapatalk was developed only for mobile themes.

Where bootstrap is more of a web site/apps deployment framework.
Meaning it is a glorified style editor which can be used to deploy mobile themes as well as normal ones, and other apps.

Now which is more time intensive to deploy???

I think of it as a glorified 960gs - if you remember that.

Bootstrap and its variations are everywhere now, esp. if you are a Joomla user.

I'm curious. When you wrote, "next week," did you mean the "week of Nov 03-09, 2013" or "week of Nov 10-16, 2013" ?

And also, when you wrote, "next update," did you mean the "next update of 7.58" or "next next update of 7.6" ?

As expected, I am excited and look forward to updates (any updates), but at the same time, I am a confused as to why things are announced without any follow-through or even just a simple revised announcement when things will be delayed.

Communication is key. It's simple to do. Even if its just adding strike-through to a previous announcement and a small blurb of updated text following it... Just something, anything, to let current and potential license buyers know that the ubb.threads PHP software should still be considered when choosing what forum software to run.

Will 7.6 or 8.0 include any API features say for checking for changes if I use my forum for modification releases and have a license system an API could allow me to let those using my mods see the latest release without loading my site.

That's a pretty big let down right there. Tapatalk is the de facto standard on droid devices. Guess which mobile platform has the biggest market share right now. Droid.

Droid, as in Verizon Wireless? "Droid" is a brand name used by Verizon to describe their brand of Google Android-based cell phones.
Tapatalk works on devices other than Verizon Wireless branded Android-based devices.

Reasons why TapaTalk is not the best path to choose:
You may think that Tapatalk my be a defacto standard, but for an owner who has come to depend on income from his forums; Tapatalk provides no website monetization abilities such as AdSense, VibrantMedia, DoubleClick...etc.

If you have a forum that gets a lot of organic referrals, pushing a third-party app ("This forum has an app for Android/iOS. Click OK to learn more about Tapatalk") in to the user's face before they know anything about your site, makes for an incredibly bad first impression. It ranks right up there with the, "Please take a survey to improve our site" and the, "Hello, my name is AMERICAN-NAME, how can I help you today?" pop-ups that you get at support sites within three seconds of loading their first page.

UBBSystems has the right idea here. Follow current web standards and create a responsive mobile website. One that you will have complete control over it's look, feel, and up-time. It's beyond me as to why anyone would rely on a single unknown third-party developer to build a stable and fully functional app that you have zero control over is release schedule or functionality. If they release a buggy app version and don't fix it for a few days/months, there is nothing you can do except tell your users to wait for a fix... and who knows when that fix will arrive? On iOS, users cannot roll back to a previous version. On Android, it's not imposable, but not simple for non-techie users. That's like putting your eggs in someone else's basket.

And what about users of FirefoxMobile or WinPhone7/8 or Ubuntu Mobile OS or other small screen OS's? They'll get left out and probably will instead browse your competitor's website because it provides a better user experience for them -- probably one that utilizes a responsive design smile

I'm talking from a user perspective and most users don't really care if you are making money from your website.

I guess I should have said android based phones.

Personally, I use Tapatalk Pro on my phone and tablet and would still (as both a developer and a multiple site owner (8 licenses)) like to see a Tapatalk interface at some point :/.

I used to think that tapatalk was the way forward, however having a responsive layout for both desktop, tablets and mobiles in the way forward without a doubt.

On some of my sites, I am now designing a responsive layout - much easier when you can fully control things.

I do not really want a third party site having control of my site.
