I've updated some add-ons, and it looks to me like the search bar now behaves much better, at least on my smartphone (Android with Firefox browser).

I've decided to close the non-public Sexuality forum due to disuse and lack of a moderator. I suspect the drop in traffic is related to the fact that we no longer have the feature to post anonymously. Perhaps the forum can be re-opened again at some point.

By the way, we have a number of non-public forums for which you can be granted access if you qualify - just send a message to the corresponding moderator:
  • 18+ discussion (moderator: Indian Summer)
  • 50+ discussion (moderator: shyvas)
  • Women's health (moderator: shyvas)
  • Men's health (moderator: Indian Summer)

Yep, search is back to normal for me. I no longer have to turn my phone to landscape view. 😊

I've added an avatar gallery, i.e. pre-made avatars, by my daughter - I'm using one of these avatars right now :) To use this just go to edit avatar, choose an avatar from the gallery and click the "OKAY" button. It's also available in the sign-up form for new members.

I've also fixed the reaction icons, so now they all have the same size. Looks much better, I think.

Is there any effort to make it offline and augmentable with your own software?
Depends what you mean exactly. Something like this?
Or this?

I actually have a very rough draft pwa at goo.gl/Um2MAk source code is embedded if you want to see, dynamic single page app

But what I was thinking of was a browser extension (kiwi has chromium extensions on the mobile) and turn it into something like an activist educational tool and community collaboration, try to eventually integrate facebook unilaterally etc
Btw I use GAS for REST, pretty sure GAS is the best

The YouTube links and embeds should now be working again, after I've installed a patch for the forum software. Apparently, YouTube had changed something on their side which meant websites like ours had to change the format of their YT links to make them work again.

Not a problem, but I was just wondering: No more than a few weeks ago (I think?), I clicked on "yes" to the question that popped up: "Enable Vegan Forum to send push notifications?" or something similar to this. I think I had formerly clicked "No"; I log on frequently enough that I don't think I'll miss much, whether I get notifications or not. But even after I clicked "yes" recently, the board still asks for permission.

EDITED TO ADD: There's the message again, at the bottom of my screen: "Vegan Forum would like your permission to enable push notifications". Maybe, if I think of it when I'm not looking for something else, I'll google the term "push notification" to see what it is.

Sorry for this late reply! I saw your post before, but I haven't run into this myself. Afraid I still don't know how to resolve it. You can go to your preferences - link below - and scroll down to push notifications to see your current settings for it:
