At the default profile type it gave a long list including mail chimp.  What would happen if I decided to set the default profile module to mail chimp?  Would it just kick back and say can't do or would it install?  Is this correct?  I thought it was either profiles or organisations.  Can Anoymous Follow be the default profile module to install?  It was in the list.  I am confused here but then again, I am not an UNA user.

Maybe this is not in the final release but I just installed GitHub Master as Andrew said we could and I can't install the platform unless I connect with the UNA Market.  I tried dummy values but it wouldn't install.  Andrew, why are you forcing people to connect to your market to install UNA?  What if we don't want to use the UNA market?  This smacks of the BS that Apple does to its users; which I have never understood why they put up with it; sheep I guess.  I should be able to install UNA without joining the UNA market.  I guess I could rip out that part but I shouldn't have to.  Also, Andrew you should not be forcing people to join the UNA market.  Perhaps, just perhaps, I would prefer to purchase my modules directly from the developers.  Boonex was god when it came to the Dolphin market, removing some very good modules because; well, I guess just because.

Forcing people to join the market at installation is just bad form.  That could easily be done later if the person decides they want to continue with UNA.

When you click on that to post a message an entire editor opens; title, category, blah blah blah.  That really should be a shout box sort of thing.  It is to post a quick message like, "Tried to go up Fifth Avenue and it took an hour." type thing.  That block is laid out as if someone was doing a full blog entry.

The template system on UNA is not the same as Dolphin.  Are there any developer documention on creating templates for UNA; how the template system works, etc.

I am sys admin for a server that has UNA installed and the JOT server.  At times the JOT server stops responding to requests; and the ...... thing displayed.  Each time that I have gotten a ticket on the JOT server, the JOT server app.js process is running; plus, forever is also shown in the process list.  Terminating app.js and restarting has JOT back up running.  There is an issue here with JOT that I don't think is being addressed.  I think there are other threads on here about JOT not responding to requests.  If JOT is going to be the messaging app, then it needs to work and not have to be restarted at odd times.

Andrew, why do you think anyone would buy hosting from you when you don't provide any support and won't answer any support tickets or emails?  I have a client that has been trying to get credentials for his server rented from Zarconia; which Boonex now operates, for days without any answers.  He has tried several different emails, CCing in each one.  I see someone else saying his server has been down for days.  Are you trying to drive Boonex into the ground?  Is that the true mission here?

In Dolphin it was easy for me to add additional editor toolbars and apply them to just the text areas that I wanted using HTML => X where x is the number of the toolbar.  Is that possible in UNA using the new foolish html editor?

"We have built UNA to make establishing an online community easy - no coding needed, no update dramas and no massive development cost." -Andrew Boon

UNA has moved away from that statement a bit.  Both RocketChat and JOT Messenger requires one to install the servers for those applications and to configure ports on the server to handle them.  I would say for most, they are going to need to hire a developer to handle these tasks.  Even the push notification requires some installations of files although most should be able to handle it without a developer. 

I have no problem with Boonex seeking third party applications to expand UNA and it makes good business sense to do so.  Why invent a new messenger app if a good solid one already exists?  I would caution against using any third party application that is not open source because without it being open source, UNA users could face headaches down the road if that third party application becomes paid or even just disappears.  With open source, UNA users will always be able to continue to use that application and even to modify it if necessary.

Maybe it was inevitable that UNA would have to move away from being a plug and play solution.

As I assist in the use of UNA I see a lot of usability issues that screams UNA is still beta software.
