PortaMx released the version 1.2 of our Forum. We added a lot of new features, fixed smaller bugs and optimize the code.

What's new in this version
We added Googles reCHAPCHA
We change the ECL routines

Google reCHAPCH is used for:
1. Guest Searches (the headbar quick search is disabled for Guests)
2. Signup
3. Guest create/answer a Topic (this is disabled on our forum)
4. You can setup a Postcount under this a Member must pass the reCAPCHA (also disabled here)
5. Also you can setup a Postcount for Private Messages under this a Member must pass the reCAPCHA (set to 5 here)

New ECL routines:
Now we check first, if a Vistor inside or outside the EU.
If he outside the EU, all cookies are set without consens information.
If he inside the EU, he must accept cookies before he can continue.

Also we make a lot of smaller css fixes for better visibility and other code optimizes.

In the Downloads you find a Install version, a Upgrade for a installed version 1.0 and a smaller Update package for all other versions (like 1.1, 1.12).

And here what Google say to our Mobile pages ...

After we had to see at last year, which did not go so well with the development of SMF 2.1 and our suggestions for improvement and troubleshooting go to absolutely deaf ears, we decided to develop our own forum (on the SMF 2.1 basis) and add some options - which we find good.

Furthermore, this forum (of course) also contains our Portal System, which is fully integrated and can be activated or deactivated with one click into the Admin Settings. Also our SEF System is integrated, which can also be activated / deactivated with one click. The old caching we have completely rewritten and thus runs now clean and effectively.

We have continued to incorporate many new and advanced features, as well as all the errors we found.
Our system is not simply responsive, desktop mode and mobile mode is completely separated. So it is possible to see the desktop view on a mobile device, if you want it.

The front page as example have a special function. On smaller mobile devices, the two-column blocks are displayed as one-column block, when the width of the screen falls below a settable value. This is just one of the many functions we have implemented. To list all this would break this post ..

One point should be mentioned, because this contributes to the security mechanismens .. COOKIES are not via Javascript set or read, this is ALWAYS done by the server. Thus, ALL cookies are also HTTP / HTTPS and Secure, which is with Javascript not possible. How we do that? Very simple .. we send a request to the server that he please save this cookie, or read it and send back the result .. very simple in principle .. but you have to make it ..

This forum system runs under PHP up from version 5.6 and (of course) with PHP 7 and 7.1 (our forum PortaMx runs under PHP 7.1) PortaMx Forum also works with secure connections (HTTPS).
