Okay I understand now. My users still complain it is hard for them to reply on a forum on their phones (sounds a bit like I am aware my pc does it better but I won't reach for it, which I honestly think is the real reason) and as you know I am stuck with open source forum. Not that I have the time or can program fast enough (I can program but I am slow as) to build something. This is comming release for my forum SmfSimple Smf 2.1 demo - Index and that still ain't good enough and then still the DCIM and the facebook can excuse. But it is a responsive design. That is kind of the looks and not the engine though.

Looks like PHP 8.0 has been released. The forum will have to update at some point. Here are two great resources for that, which I may need in the near future:
What's new in PHP 8
php/php-src

The update should not be nearly as difficult or painful as the one from 5 to 7, so I expect it to be less of a big deal. (PHP 6 never really materialized. Look it up if you're curious.)
As far as I know, after the dust settled, the only issue we're left with from the update from 5 to 7 was that the chat feature (which I did not write, and is a bit difficult to debug) occasionally will not show your own message as posted to the room. Your message does post, but you can't see it without a page refresh. This is just one of those known issues that might stick around for a long while. Other things are much more important.

I have not enouhg spare time to have a serious look to you sticher and guthub links. I also failed to find with chance and after looking for a chat, some 'yellable box' and since it is a lot easier for me to drop something then ask for, wait for, make sure I can D0, how about irc /join > chatbox and some joining fixing the ones and dorments forum names? Drawback can be some

Don't bother. They are reminders to myself. No one else needs to read them.

The chat feature has been around for a LONG time. It's linked at the top of every page, in the header. Search any page for "chat" and you should find it. It's to the right of "The Dash Gallery". Do you see it up there near the top of each page?

I'm sorry. I have no idea what you're talking about here. Let me know if still can't find the chat page. Or if it's not working for you.
