Hi.
So, every time I make a new topic on this forum, I like to tweet it out. I was wondering if it'd be possible to add a feature where you can automatically tweet out topics you create so you don't have to do it manually?

It would most likely be technically possible. The question is, as always, if anyone would actually write the code for it and install it on the forum.

Sincerely,
Lucas.

I'd be happy if someone would do that, although it's not strictly necessary. Besides, I'm sure they have extensions for that made already, right? Isn't the PunBB community kind of large?

@3, uh, no. Not really. PunBB is probably one of the worse forum packages out there these days, especially since it hasn't been updated in several years. Not to mention that the documentation is... sketchy at best. If you want these kinds of advanced features, your looking at the wrong forum package. A more apt forum package would be Discourse, PHPBB, FluxBB, etc.

problem with basically everything I've seen other than pun bb is that they all have their own accessibility issues or annoyances, for example useless tables that are actual tables, not layout, random lists, header mismatch in posting tables, and no fucking headings on the page.

If you're good at CSS/skinning, you can absolutely fix those. JCink's been made accessible by the guys over there. Namely Owl and Kjrod98, so it can absolutely be done.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.
