TinyPortals name?
« on: February 23, 2021, 05:26:30 PM »
I'd suggest TinyPortal is the most powerful and flexible of the portal apps available for SMF.

I think however that the name TinyPortal doesn't capitalise on this and sounds like a portal 'lite' rather than the feature rich and flexible platform it actually is.

Has any consideration been given to a name change?  Just curious more than anything.

I was trying to find some old post where the name was touched upon, but they must have disappeared when we lost the site several years ago. 

Yes the name does kind of imply TinyPortal might be a bit lightweight in some way. But look at it like Little John from Robin hood. ;) 

If I can find the info regarding the naming I'll post back here.  ;)
