Use your emoji keyboard. Pretty much any device has one of those.

I installed 3.2.0-RC2 because 3.1.10 would not install on PHP7 web server. Oddly, I have 3.1.6 installed on that server and other than being unable to upgrade, it appears to function normally.

My question at this point is are there any themes besides the default for 3.2, and if so where do I find them?

As well as windows 10 FWIW (taskbar->show touch keyboard button).

I'm of the opinion that pop-ups are a bit old hat and many users have them blocked in their browsers in any case.

How about something like this?

Looks interesting. You're welcome to create an extension for that feature or request one in the Extension Requests forum. I don't really see something like that being integrated into the core anytime soon especially when there are way more desirable and useful features that can be added.

Well, I'd absolutely definitely give it a vote as an extension. Do it!

Totally agree, smileys are a past thing, emojis are the wave of the future.

Somehow that counter got there in the header, we'll be announcing why soon. :)

I still am not receiving email notifications on topic replies and PMs. Was that supposed to have been fixed with this release?

Hi, welcome to phpBB.com! :)

I don't believe there was a bug in RC1 that led to e-mails not actually being sent. The only problem that was fixed is that the notification emails that were sent weren't correctly being parsed. So for the problem you're experiencing, please open a new topic in the 3.2 Support Forum and we can find out why.

The viglink should be via extension... That's more like a bloatware on an opensource forum software :?

About the other stuff, good job. ;)

Vigilink is an extension, and can be disabled in the extensions settings. It can also be deleted.
