Imagine our phpBB forum sites hosted on phones or computers like an app. Looking at it, it is no different from an application. Yes I am talking about PWA
. This is a great feature that will take phpBB forums to the next level.
From Xenforo, the biggest alternative to phpBB, I would like to give this example: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/p ... pp.181448/
The nice thing about this is that when we click on our forum address in the search results or click on our forum link elsewhere, the PWA application opens immediately.
A shortcut link can be added to the quick links. And this PWA application disappears when downloaded. When the normal browser is opened, it may say "Switch to Application".
Also, Push Notifications are just as important. There is a paid phpBB plugin. This shows that this is possible. Already have a Push Notifications
I think the settings such as icon, short name, opening screen and type should be taken care of from the ACP.
