Wow!  It's all so beautiful, Erica, I don't even know what to say!  Elegantly done and very clearly organized, it's everything a homepage should be.  It has a wonderful lightness to it all and the images are so gorgeous, it makes me feel happy and calm just to look at it.  And is that heart tag made of fabric?  Did you do that beautiful script on fabric?!  Swoon!  The postage stamp social media links are so inspired, I almost died when I saw them.  Okay, I'll stop gushing now, but seriously, it is just so beautifully done and such a nice treat to come back to the forum after a long absence and see such a lovely change in the forum's public face.

Thank you to everyone for all of the lovely comments!

Yes, @Elisabeth_M It is on fabric but I cheated... I printed it onto muslin fabric using butcher's paper (you iron the fabric onto it and then can print on it). It worked surprisingly well!

I was pretty tickled with myself when I made the postage stamp social media links! LOL! So I am very happy they are so well received. Thanks so much for the awesome feedback!  ;D

@Erica McPhee--The butcher paper trick isn't cheating, it's genius!  I have to try it myself, now!

@Erica McPhee Omg, looooove the new home page design! And the social media icons as stamps, so clever, Erica! Happy to hear you're home safe and sound. Sending positive vibes to you and your fellow Floridians who have a long road of recovery ahead. <3

Thanks Janice!  ;D

Elizabeth, I do not think it is an option right now. I know some folks have paid developers to try to convert their own forums into an app but as far as I know, there is no universal app for an SMF forum right now (the version we use).  :-[

@Erica McPhee  - SMF is compatible with Tapatalk which allows a much improved forum experience on mobile devices where browser based forum software is hard to use. The instructions for installing the Tapatalk package for SMF can be found here: https://www.tapatalk.com/download_SimpleMachines.php

It is not an app on a computer though so doesn't satisfy the requirement from @Elizgadus59 :-)
