    One tap to open reaction menu

    True, but there is a momentum issue. People have gotten used to decades of seeing "Like". A tooltip might help the transition. I suppose "Like" could one day change to something "Vote"?

    One tap to open reaction menu

    I suggest taking it a few steps farther. Click to open the Reactions and Share this post menu, and not just for mobile. Many of our members using mice click the Like so fast they haven't noticed the Reactions menu. I suggest making the mouseover of these two items pop a tooltip and a click/tap...

    Change mouseover behavior for Reactions and "Share this post" menus

    I missed that, thanks. In addition I suggest including the "Share this post icon" and having a mouseover pop a tooltip for both instead of popping the menu.

    Change mouseover behavior for Reactions and "Share this post" menus

    I have never been able to get mouseovers to work on Windows 10 touchscreens. We have a lot of members that can't seem to make it work on their smart phones.

    Change mouseover behavior for Reactions and "Share this post" menus

    The current mouseover behaviors of Like/Reactions and the "Share this post" menus are difficult to impossible to access on touchscreen interfaces. I suggest changing them to a tooltip on mouseover and require clicking or tapping to pop the menu. This will require an extra click if the member...

    Option to link logo different URL

    We have been changing logos for different event, like the passing of a member or a holiday. It would be really useful if we had the option to link the logo to a different URL but still have the Home tab go to our home page. It would be very intuitive for a member to click on the logo to...

    Forum opt-out

    User groups and options in Preferences limit access to some of our professional and non-diving forums now but that is a small percentage of our ~500 forums. We could really use more granularity than is practical to configure in Preferences. For example, most members in Europe have no interest...

    Highlighted text in linkes

    I there is a new option in Google's Chrome internet browser that allows linking to a specific point on a Web page (click link for details). It would be very useful when quoting part of a large post if xenForo would jump to and highlight like this new Chrome feature. Clicking the link above...

    Fixed Image Popup not becoming visible on all/small images

    We can only get it to pop 25-30% of the time when inserting on a blank like or at the end of a post.

    XF 2.2 Custom BB-code for Pull-Quotes?

    I have been hacking at trying to make a magazine-style pull-quote BB-Code for our site. I came up with this, which is OK but serviceable. Here is the code I'm using: <div class=pullquote"> <hr /> <p style="text-align:center"><span style="color:#0000ff"><span...

    Tooltip BB Code

    I apologize for not letting you see the results earlier. I tweaked your suggestion a little so people would know to mouseover the target. https://scubaboard.com/community/threads/new-tooltip-option.613864/ I named it sbtooltip in case xenForo ever makes a native tooltip function that uses a...

    Link to headings in a post

    We are developing more Wiki threads, especially now that the Articles forum type allows 3x larger OPs. It would be very useful if a URL would allow linking to a heading inside a post like Wikipedia does. Example, open this link in a new tab or window: Wikipedia's Scuba diving. Scroll down to the...
