post prefix.

I use it in my classifieds section and especially my technical section, and also certain other ones. I just LOVE it,

I won't be going to 2.1 with my forum until there's a stable version of this mod for it.

*sigh* I am not looking forward to doing it again

on top of all of the mods, i've done enough customization myself

lmfao I may just end up paying someone to do it whenever 2.1 is finalized....

one site alone has nearly 300 modifications  ;D

Just dropped by to take a peek... it seems you need a bit more content, so lets add some...

Been using SMF since 2011 and have been checking new mods regularly to see if anything comes along that is useful. I tend to be pretty realistic: Mods on my site must really add something, or they go again. As a result I am now using 34 mods that I like and 'need'

List below (versions are the one currently running, not necessarily the latest)

Let's start with the really important ones: not having these would really make me consider onther options then SMF, or it would create serious discussions with the forum users should they no longer be available..

TinyPortal   2.0.0 RC1
Downloads System   3.0.1
Post and PM Inline Attachments   6.12
Automatic Attachment Rotation (and Resize)   5.3
Image Processing Memory Limit   0.1.2
Simple Audio Video Embedder   5.1
Board Index Unread Icon Fix   1.0
AJAX Recent Topics   1.1
These are the mods that I use because they make life for my admins easier, or we feel they are needed to do our job...
Does not mean that is the same for other forums of course...
View Only Boards   1.2c
Custom Board Sort   1.0.2
EU Cookie FJR   1.3
Remove "Last edit" mod   0.2.5
Auto Lock Old Topics   2.0
Alternate User Posting   1.0.1
Group Attachment Limits   1.1.0
Sortable Packages (and Installed Time)   1.3.5
Google Analytics Code   1.5.1
Optimus   2.2.1 [08/09/19]
PECL Redis Support   0.1
Theme  related   
Using a curve variation some mods were used to tweak the theme...

Responsive Curve   1.1.0 (Unofficial Rev2)
Previous and Next Links for Page Index   2.1.204
Tidy Child Boards   2.0
And then of corse there is the 'other' stuff: no must haves and we can do without but these mods fill a need somewhere...

Ignore Topics   2.3
Add Social Media Icons To Profiles   1.2.0
Float BBCODE   1.0.2
Users Online Today   2.1
Spiders Don't Increase Topic Views   1.1.1
Search Focus Dropdown   1.6.1
YandexGarland   1.3.3
Simple .htaccess Cache Mod   2.7
Generic Avatars   1.11
Global Topics   2.2
More Spiders   1.2
Order Custom Profile Fields   1.1.1

Strangely enough, I try to use the least amount of mods I can get away with. ;)  But these ones listed below I tend to use on all my sites. 

Stop Spammer
Ohara YouTube Embed
Responsive Curve
Sortable Packages (and Installed Time)
Disable 'last edit by...' for Administrators
Administration Center Security
I sold my Hoover yesterday, it was only collecting dust.                                                                          A friend of mine always wanted to be run over by a steam train. When it happened, he was chuffed to bits!

I used to always have https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2557 installed on my sites, really good mod but its outdated now, while it should work on 2.0.17 it has not been updated in 10 years and  no support for it.

My fave Mod? Simple Portal. It's the heart of my site.
