Website and Forum update (@mentions added)

FYI
Some updates were applied to the website and forum software (mostly bug fixes). If there is any problem or unusual behavior please let us know.

Also, a new functionally - Forum Mentions - has been added. Now it is possible to use the @ + username to tag / mention someone in a post around here (a bit like social sites such as facebook or twitter). This will warn the user that his name was mentioned. In addition, users now have access to their mentions under "Profile > Mentions".

Cheers

Adapting the current default demo to that would take too much time and I have almost none currently :(

... still, since it is Christmas I can give you three possible alternatives:
1st) use the imode reducer version, which completely sucks and is nothing of what you're expecting.
2nd) is to use a different theme. I've spent sometime adding a new theme to the forum which is responsive. It is different (even the colors, it is light) but at least it adapts to your screen size. You can give it a try by going to Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout -> Current Theme: (change), but I'm not sure you will adapt or even like it.
3rd) use an app in your device. There is an app called Tapatalk which I never tried but know that it serves to view forums. If you wish I can try to install support for it here and then you can check this and other forums in that same app.

What do you think?

When I check Tosecdev on my smartphone I'm not logged in, so #2 isn't much of a help...

Something else I noticed, Tosecdev.org is available with https, but it doesn't automatically redirect to that secure version. When you search for the website on Google, it still links to http. Can you add a redirect to the htaccess file?

That's a good suggestion. Will have a look at that once I've a bit of time!

@Kodoichi I kinda forced this already. It seems to work perfectly in the main site. At the forum it is also forced but you might get a warning because some links are hardcoded in the template to http (which will be redirected to https anyway). Still need to fix this in the future to avoid the extra redirection.

Thanks for the tip!
