New PFF features - I've been busy! (Page 1/11)
Cliff Pennock DEC 01, 03:03 AM
I've been working very hard these last few weeks implementing some very needed features for PFF. First of all, PFF now has a functional "mobile" mode. Visit PFF on a mobile phone and you'll see... 😉

Not everything is working yet and I haven't tested a lot of phones yet but on my android phone, it works perfect. In fact, I'm writing this on my mobile phone right now! 😊

You'll notice the look and feel on a mobile phone is, in some places, quite different than on a desktop. Also, most hardly used features are hidden on the mobile version to keep the interface as clean as possible.

Another highly anticipated feature is image posting! You can now finally post pictures directly through PFF! 🎊🎊✨🎈👍👍🎉🎉

If you post or edit a message, you'll notice an "Upload Image" button (on desktop) or camera icon (on mobile). Pressing/tapping that enables you to upload images and insert them in your post. The system keeps track of who uploads which image, so if you try to upload an image you've uploaded before, the system will notify you and offer you the option to overwrite the existing image or not.

On a mobile phone, you can even upload photos directly from your camera!

Posted images are automatically resized so they won't be gigantic in size or take up tons of disk space. Also, images are always sized on screen as well so they will always fit on the screen.

Lastly, some small bugs were fixed.

Oh, and one thing that comes with mobiles: emojis! 😄😁😱🙈🙈🙈

Love'm or hate'm...

Oh the downside on mobile phones: auto correct... So expect to see a lot more weird texts in posts... 👀

Tip #1: If you are wondering how to get back to the main forum page on the mobile version, just tap the PFF banner at the top of the page. 👆

Tip #2: Missing a feature on the mobile version that you know is there on the desktop version? Just rotate your phone to landscape orientation and PFF will automatically switch to desktop mode.

Tip #3: If you want to "reply with quote" on the mobile version, just tap the message you want to reply to.

Testing...

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.


[EDIT] That's great, although I see that it'll still be beneficial to upload images that are less than 300 kb in size (to avoid the need to click an icon). Thanks Cliff.

Thank you cliff.

As someone with only tellingbone access this makes a massive difference.

There will still be a limit, but much higher than it is now.

Just noticed the upload image icon box before reading this thread.
It is quick and easy!
