This is Discourse---should we keep it?


#21

A test to see what discourse does with hashtags #site-feedback It brings up the list of categories. #hashtag making your own does nothing.


#22

Discourse definitely gets my vote. Love the look and feel and responsiveness. And seems to work brilliantly on mobile. Even added a shortcut to home screen, complete with adorable rhino icon :heart:


#23

So, mostly positive feedback and testing happening, but I can safely assume we’ll be going with Discourse then. It awesome and will be a good start for now. With a little bit of tweaking of some settings it will become better as well.


#24

hot damn! the more i use discourse, the more i love it! everything just WORKS. it feels super snappy and responsive and looks fantastic (in dark theme). Someday, all forums will be designed this way :smile:


#25

well so far I’m good with Discourse, it has a dark theme which scores it some major points in my book

and everything else is growing on me. Plus it’s FAST


#26

Only thing so far that i am missing or am blind to find, is a mark all read button?

Since I dont bother reading the console threads and the little voice in my head kills me and drives me mental cos there shows unread topics


#27

I thought I was the only one to use this feature.

I noticed if you’re on the “unread” tab or topic filtering, right at the bottom of the page is an options to mark all or dismiss or something like that.


#28

I like it very much. I actually like the select to quote feature, even though I only found out about it now.


#29

So, @SIGSTART when is the deadline for us to make a decision? I think people are starting to find their feet here. I think we’ve found a grand ol system to use


#30

We actually have a bit of time to get everything in place. Whatever is going to happen will only happen in the new year.

I agree, though. Feedback about Discourse seems to be generally positive, so unless a huge shortcoming rears its head, this is one thing we can put down as “sorted”, and focus on the rest.


#31

Try this @Wyvern


#32

Starting to notice some nuances.

  1. can’t color text
  2. the “unread” filter only shows unread items
  3. the “new” filter only shows new topics/threads, despite them being unread

#33

And?

No shit.

No shit


#34

Just taking the piss beo.


#35

I also noticed that when I wanted to change the color, but not a big deal for me.

As opposed to? Not sure what you mean here.

I don’t use the “new” function at the moment, only Unread, which is working fine for me.


#36

can’t quote an image though… at least I can’t figure that one out yet


#37

It only shows unread, doesn’t show the new thread.


#38

That’s a good thing in my opinion. I hate it when someone posts a whole bunch of images, and then the next person quotes them with all the images included again.


#39

then click on the “New” tab


#40

ja but normal civilized people would delete the unnecessary images
