Re: [DEV] Forum Runner - Android/iPhone/iPad Client for phpB

Post by noth »

I have not had a mobile phone since they first came out, so basically I am not a mobile phone person

but one of my members told me I should install this "ForumRunner"

my question is, what is the difference on a mobilephone seeing a phpBB forum with/ without ForumRunner and is ForumRunner approved by phpBB?

is ForumRunner approved by phpBB
If it was it would be in the database here. If it isn't in the database then it isn't a validated mod.

If you are asking if this is an official phpBB sponsored add on, the answer is no. We are a 3rd party developer that has developed this add on and app and added support for phpBB forums.

It is listed in phpBB's add on database (or should be) as we want to play by phpBB's 3rd party modification rules.

I need to see about moving it out of dev status since it is now a release version of code. I will do this when I am back from vacation this weekend.

If you have any problems installing it, let me know via PM!

If you want to have it in the MODDB you will need to submit it as update to the MODDB at www.phpbb.com/mods/db/ Right now it is not listed in the MODDB, you only have your own topic in the MODs in development forum, what basicly means that users should not install it as it is development quality code.

Tapatalk has an auto popup when you view the forum on your phone outside of the APP. Wasnt sure if Forum Runner did the same and if this could cause a conflict.

Both are optional. If you have them both on, they don't conflict.

You probably need to add the module manually under AdminCP->System->Administration Control Panel, then add Forum Runner module in the bottom right...

This looks to be a great app for today's smart phone users. Any idea when this mod will be tested and approved for official release here on phpbb?

Probably a while.

I submitted it for approval a few months ago and they came back with about 100 pages of automated complaints due to code alignment (white space, etc) in the tool.

I'm not too keen on spending days going over and fixing every white-space issue in the code when I could be working on new features. :)

Ok, thanks for the reply. That's a shame as this seems like a much better alternative to tapatalk. Another mod which can't seem to get validated for other reasons.
Many users here (myself included) steer clear of unvalidated mods due to lack of support from phpbb. I'm sure you can understand why.
Regardless, Best of luck with your mod.

Maybe this one could be an alternative that is validated?
