The main page should now display properly on mobile browsers without zooming itself out.
Nice. The next task should be figuring out why, when navigating to the forum page, the site automatically downloads two empty HTML files.

Long-standing Firefox bug.

This worked for me:
Best I can find is it's something do with https vs http and Firefox being a POS.

Try this:

This can be caused by downloading a file over an insecure HTTP link from a secure HTTPS page (i.e.there is mixed content on the page).

You can try to modify this pref on the about:config page to see if that has effect.

It makes no sense to have that feature. When someone quotes an image, you want to see it without clicking on a link that takes you off the page.

So are we going to get a random selection and dice rolling function like we had in the old forum any time soon?

Also the new forum crams all the smillies into this small pop up which makes some of the larger smillies so small you have a hard time figuring which one is which

Twiglard would it be possible to make the media function accept twitter frontend URLs?
for example,
https://nitter.net/ChrisAvellone/status/1582058085517910023
so just detect if it ends in a /status/[0-9]{20,} and rewrite it to a twitter.com URL?

I have no idea how long that number after the status is supposed to be btw. Just spitballing.

I think once upon a time nitter supported embedding. But even if it does now, it's a bad idea due to the rate limiting. Unless you want to set up a large caching instance specifically for people's embeds.

If we're writing plugins for xenforo then the more useful thing is slurping the tweet at the time of posting and embedding it directly in the post's text where the embed code was. Like substack does with shitter links.

What I'm doing personally with twitter.com, twimg, facebook and fbcdn is disable their cookie and site data permissions. But Firefox and Chrome should now have per-site containers for third-party cookies dependent upon the first-party domain, out of the box.

I added [sup] and [sub] tags for superscript and subscript. note the use of the [plain] tag to output these two tags literally without invoking them.
