    Some questions regarding Portal mods for SMF.

    Do you still use a portal mod on your SMF forum?
    What makes you choose one portal mod over another?
    What do you mainly use the portal for?
    What features would you like to see in a portal mod?
    What portal mod do you use, and why?

    My community is still on DreamPortal which is by far the slowest part of the site. We'll be switching sometime in the next couple of months to SimplePortal, if I had to guess. Our portal is mainly used for announcements.

    Thanks. I'm curious, what makes you choose Simpleportal over the other portals available?

    I use TinyPortal. I use it to post front page articles in blog type fashion. I had tried a couple of other portals when I was developing the site and various things didn't meet my needs. TP works well enough with the responsive theme I am using, and is easy (for me) to use. I don't really have any need for functionality beyond what TP already provides. Thanks for making it available. :tup:

    Nice one. Are you using the responsive beta version 1.3R to go with your responsive theme? Or just the standard Tinyportal 1.3?

    I probably need to update - 1.2 with a theme from SMF Tricks.
