Improvements to Forum(37 posts)
We should be able to more easily see the threads that we started, or threads where somebody has responded to us.
You can do it on the profile page, but that's not very convienient.
I added a plugin that makes new posts bold... but it doesn't unbold right away, takes a few minutes. Not the end solution, but maybe a nice interim.
I originally started working on setting up a phpbb forum, but the problem is that it doesn't integrate with Wordpress very well, and also doesn't have RSS feeds. I really like the new phpbb3 topic theme, though.
I also want the forums here to be as simple as possible... we don't need overly complicated forums with all sorts of functions you'll never use. I'd rather just implement the features that are really useful, and then leave it at that.
I've added the post count... I still have a lot of work to do on the theme, but it's improving!
I like bbPress... it's like a blank slate where I can add just the things I want.
Yeah, post views are being calculated on the back-end, but I'm still working on a good way to display them without killing performance.
bbPress is great, but some of the plugins are a bit ugly in their implementations.
You might notice that I've added in a views count... it's not entirely accurate on most of the topics posted before yesterday, but at least it's a start... it should be accurate going forwards.
I'm debating on adding it to the list pages as well... not sure that it really has much value there, but it seems like every other forum does it.
