However, all new development and any new features offered will be in the Zeta format, so Classic forums will not be able to use them.
Except for Zeta chat and the PMs... :D
Was talking about forum features. :)
Thanks for clearing that up, I'll pass that along. Sad to see Delphi phasing out the classic view....

Think of it more that Classic is frozen in time, because it can't structurally handle newer coding that newer features require.
How 'bout a list of "features" that supposedly can't be done in the classic platform . . .
Off the top of my head, here are some of them:
Like a message
Multiple recipients to a message
Tag someone in a message with @
Import/Export color themes
Easy background images
Multiple forum Wizards
I'm sure there are others as well, but those are the first things I thought of.
In classic can - like a message, that has been around for several years, have been able to do color themes for years, same with background images . . .
I am specifically asking what features can only be coded by using the new zeta platform . . . that are not able to be coded under the classic platform . . . and not that it is easier under zeta to code something . . . but specifically can't be done in classic . . .
For example - under classic assist wizards have been around for years . . . when you say multiple wizards - are you saying that a zeta forum can have multiple wizards that can exert the very same control over all controls of forum . . . if that is the case, then Delphi has made it possible for non forum owners to lock out forum owners . . .
As another example - a number of years back modified an owned forum with CSS . . . some things that could be done with CSS, Delphi didn't allow to be done . . . not unlike, over the years, some HTML was blocked . . . along with various widgets (so ta say) were blocked from use . . .
Anyway . . .
It's up to you which interface you use in your forums. If you prefer Classic, that's just fine. Personally, I much prefer Zeta. :)
Yes it is, and like many forum owners prefer classic . . . it's a shame it is being phased out, as it was and still is the best platform Delphi has had . . .
