    I would have thought that, in order to achieve that, we'd need to group or order those comments in some way. In a linear chronological view it would only be able to take you to one of them. Can IPS group top/highest rated comments in a reddit-esque style? If so, I agree it would be a good option for that use case.

    Will this allow the member to use the same password as they had before? Kind of defeats the purpose if they can.

    I joined in May 2011 and purchased the software for use with a gaming community. Since then it's also been used for a photography community, horse rescue charity and, currently, an astronomy community.
    I've never, not once, considered leaving for a competitor. The software and support has been top-notch throughout.

    The more I use the app the more I enjoy using it. It’s refreshing to have proper push notifications and a decent mobile interface (not that I am knocking the current mobile interface, but I like the app a lot more).
    It’s still got some kinks to be worked out but Rikki and the team are burning through the feedback at a rate of knots. 
    Thanks for the efforts with this.

    Strict Transport Security should be set up at the server level, and only if you are using SSL (https).
    You can enable a Content Security Policy right from the AdminCP should you wish, but it's not something we can automate. You may have needs that the software can't know about (such as showing a Pages widget on an external domain), which is why you should configure it yourself if you wish to use it.
    We do output the Content Type Options header when sending a file to the browser. There's little to no benefit using it just on every single page, but we do see value in attachment and file handlers to prevent browsers trying to guess what the file is even after we've supplied a mime type.
    We enable a Referrer Policy when visiting external links.
    I'm not really sure I'd group a Feature Policy in with security related headers...it's intended to indicate to the user agent which features (like location) the site may need. Trying to do this automatically also means third parties in the future may run into trouble if they try to leverage a new feature that we didn't outright allow initially. Either way, I'd say it's at least debatable if this should be lumped in as a security concern (Google's writeup even says "It's like CSP, except it controls features instead of security").

    If Apple add full push notifications to web apps before the end of 2020, I'll eat not only my hat, but yours too.*

    I love your passion, DII but we have given this a LOT of thought. We haven't just gone "OMG lets do an app LOL". It's been something we've been discussing for about 2 years. We've been waiting and waiting and waiting for Apple to take PWA seriously and while they are inching forward with service workers and other things, it's still a long way off.

    So we've had no choice but to go the native app route. Don't worry about resources though, we're fine. There's like 18 of us now.

    *If you are showing a screenshot of this in 2020 from your push notification from a PWA on your Apple device, I regret everything.

    Yes, this!
    There seems to be a lot of focus on "my users don't want a multi community app" and "PWAs are coming". It's not that simple in either regard.
    The users of my community with Tapatalk often used it for only one community... Mine. They treated it as an app for my community, and therefore it became a single community app. It did not bother them that they could add other communities nor did they care about the fact that it was as generic as possible in order to work on different software. The pain was felt by me, in keeping Tapatalk working and up to date. Eventually it became too much hassle, so it was removed much to the ire of many users. An app offering would be a welcome return.
    The use of PWAs is increasing, so I will not argue the semantics of that. I haven't yet, however, met a single one of my users who knows what a PWA is, how a PWA works, how to add a PWA to their device, etc. In fact, when I advised certain staff members of my community about PWAs they tested them and were not impressed. In short, they'd prefer what they termed "a proper app". I've no doubt that PWAs will improve over time, but for now it's not there.
