New Forum is a Welcome Surprise


#1

The announcement of a new home for the Hannity forum was a surprise but I like the much leaner look. It’s very mobile friendly.

I am sure it will take some getting used to for some and the reset of post counts will make some gnash their teeth lol.


#2

Conan pokes Nemesis. :grin:

Yeah it will take some use too. As for post counts who cares. I rather not let people know I’ve spent way too much time on the board. :wink:


#3

Not sure I’m liking it. Will take some time…


#4

Yes it seems almost all mobile (I haven’t pulled it up on my pc yet but went to full site and is very similar) and will take a little getting used to, but I’m a fan of the streamlined look and the notifications.


#5

Agreed. Wonder if there’s an option to embed tweets and other media…


#6

This board is here for you guys - let us know what feature(s) or options you’d like to see and we’ll do our best to enable them!


#7

Here is an example of Discourse (the new community software we’ve built off of) on a few popular sites:

Not a huge fan of the dark design, but some of the features are neat (I do like the subdomain “talk” - thoughts?):

This community added 2k active users and >500 topics per week: https://community.infinite-flight.com/

We’ve also enabled visitors to login via Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Google so that the ease of posting is faster. Plus, you don’t have to remember a separate username and password just for the new community :slight_smile:


#8

It’s just because we are so used to the traditional messag board format. I hope this place thrives.


#9

Yes…this is going to take some getting used to.

I like the auto-preview format.


#10

Hey i figured our quoting!!! Paarty


#11

@JayJay Hello


#12

Ahh nice, the first icon on the left. Oh whoa. And it’s multi-level. That might take some getting used to, but definitely nice in some cases.


#13

Being able to quickly see the replies to a particular post is pretty cool.


#14

Now THAT is going to take getting used to- waiting until you’re in the editor to do the quoting.


#15

@FreeAndClear Back atcha!


#16

And you can highlight sections and quote just that part.

I also like the auto-preview pane which also is a tips pane. Auto-preview is important for someone like me that commits typos with some regularity!


#17

This will take an old man some getting used to. Lol


#18

Yeah, it’s definitely going to be an adjustment. :grin:


#19

So far so good. I might need a new avatar though.


#20

So here we are…:wink:
