Some changes have now been made to the interface of the forum. This is still a work in progress and some things may still change as time marches on.
Here is a summary of what’s new…
New User Banner
We’ve added a new banner as a trial. This aims to give new users more vital information to participate in the community. This can be dismissed by the user and extended/collapsed as appropriate. The banner will display on both desktop and mobile devices. This is still a WIP so may change overtime.
New Tag Icons
We’ve added a few colour coded icons to our tag list now. This should make it easier to visualise the tags added to the topic and see them more clearly.
Let us know your thoughts on the tag icons below!
Quick Action Menu
A new menu has been added when you click on your profile picture in the top right. You should now notice a new wrench icon. This menu contains quick links to certain forum features, however is not yet complete and we will add more links overtime.
The current links for normal users (non-staff) are:
• Forum appearance
• Muted topics
• Top topics
• Category notifications
• Top monthly readers
The aim of this is to prevent you scrolling through multiple pages to find what you are looking for.
If you’d like to see any quick actions added then let us know below!
We’re always looking at ways to improve the forum and user experience! Feel free to send any requests or feedback our way and we’ll see what we can do :).
