I contacted IPS about this and they recommended I ask this fine support community: Is there any way to access smileys on mobile, aside from members having to recall the code? A popular request from our forum lately has been for a popup or something similar with the icons to click. Perhaps a hook or alternative mobile skin?
I think it would be useful to have the ability for a pinned topic to take precedence over other pinned topics in the same forum so that the former remains at the top of the page at all times. For example, this has been called an "Announcement" on past forums I've seen and run. But it's different from the existing "Announcement" function currently in IPB that does not serve as a topic, nor can members reply to it.
Unfortunately, those seem to get overlooked when compared to pinned topics. But a board with a number of pinned topics might have one that is important enough to necessitate appearing at the top at all times (as is our case). I'd definitely recommend adding this function in the next upgrade if possible. Seems like an easy addition.
When looking at a thread title from each forum, the currently option of jumping to a page shows the first 3 pages and the last page. E.g. 1,2,3...87.
Could this be changed to the first page and the last 3 pages? E.g. 1...85,86,87.
As several members have pointed out, on our forums at least, this would be much more useful as larger threads are going to draw more interest on later pages rather than earlier pages so that members can catch up on the latest conversations.
