Wow I had an amazing Epiphany : (thanks to @cholent for inviting me to the klal govoah slack channel it hit me)
If Dan is looking for a better or more smooth forum system you have to switch to the slack app. Thereís no limit on users and itís powerful and much better than tapatalk. @Dan this would be a great great idea.

1) only 10,000 message search history on the free tier

2) the threading implementation is an abomination and wouldn't work for typical DDF usage

3) not public

4) it's not meant to be a replacement for forum style communication

5) it's not self hosted and migration of existing users will be a complete disaster

6) existing DDF content will be lost and/or fragmented

These are the first 6 reasons that came to me. I've been using Slack daily for more than 5 years, I can tell you emphatically that Slack is NOT a replacement for DDF.

It's probably a good alternative to alI of y'all's DDWhatsApp groups... ;)

Having a strange issue... embedded GCMap images are not showing for me. Works fine on my phone, no go on my computer. Already cleared the cache for both DDF and GCMap with no luck. Other embedded images work fine.

Example - there should be a map here, but I'm showing nothing:



Any suggestions?

They may have added some anti-embedding code?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Which browser are you using on your phone?

(It's not loading for me on chrome, but other browsers it is, probably because it's a bin file)
