Chrome shortcut

I've noticed that with ElkArte, when creating a shortcut with Chrome app (Android) the shortcut opens in own window and not in the browser.

I'd like to know what coding in ElkArte causes this, as I'd like to see if can use it on regular sites.

I don't think that was something Elk did  :undecided:  I'll have to try it myself !

Found what it is.

Make site a PWA

Make a file in site root: manifest.json:

Code: [Select]
  "background_color": "navy",
  "description": "Site Description",
  "display": "standalone",
  "icons": [
      "src": "images/app_logo.png",
      "sizes": "200x200",
      "type": "image/png"
  "name": "Site name",
  "short_name": "App Name",
  "start_url": "https://www.domain.tld/"

Add to main index page: (Or index.template.php)

Code: [Select]
<link rel="manifest" href="https://www.domain.tld/manifest.json" />

PWA are more than just an icon IIRC?
Though I've been a bit sleepy on mobile stuff (and other stuff too) for quite a while. :-\
