Hi, Love the software but there is 1 thing i think would improve it, having sticky posts (posts that can be set by admins to stay at the top of listings for a category, such as rules for the category.)
The last entry in the Codoforum docs changelog lists only what's new in version 3.0 - nothing about the newer versions released since. Updating those may help us understand what new features are available, and what bugs are supposed to have been fixed - and this will help us make suggestions and bug reports that are more relevant and useful to you.
It would also be great to see the Roadmap itself updated.
Clicking the "Mark All as Read" button in the forum homepage - the "All Topics" page - also collapses the categories list, hiding the category names and new topic counts. The user is left without knowing whether their click worked. A second click is needed in order to expand the category list again, and see that the pill counters have gone.
Could this be in the future a changeable button/image? And add some space between an image in a post and the read more text/button/image. (I personal would love it when the read more is the same button as "Reply" or "Save/Post" that blue button.)
Many user dont see the read more text, since it is so little and its to close to the topic text.
Or, could you tell me how i change read more into an image simply? Adding a image into the locale doesnt work on that place.
Cant this be done in some future release?? It's when you are a new user and confirmed your email for the first time. And if you are a user who didn't write any messages on the forum yet.
It looks cleaner to say they are no recent messages or something like that instead of the loading circle and then nothing.
Also, i noticed you changed Latest login into Never some releases back because there was an issue, cant this Never be the time of the registration? Looks cleaner also, i have some user who post 1 thing and never login anymore. Looks strange some users have 1 message and havent been logged in ever.... So i think the registration/confirming time should be the first date at last login.
And then also, the latest notifications are not latest yet, it looks cleaner to show always the latest 5-10 notifics when u press the bell on top.
Hope this could be all integrated into a new release yes please.
In our system we already use it with success for years:
Each text that appears on the front end, is in our php program, a reference to a language text file that was selected when the user log in.
It would make it possible to each user, at the same time, see the chat/forum in his preferred language, just selecting it at log in.
1-) In our php file: <p>< =GLOBAL_BTN_PRINTDETAILS;?></p>
A) If the user select English at log in, it will refer to
At the front end it will show as Details
B) If Brazilian Portuguese is selected, it will refer to:
At the front end it will show as Detalhes
C) If Italian is selected:
At the front end it will show as Dettagli
Each language is at a separated file (en.php, it.php, br.php, and others).
It makes it easy to translate and add different languages.
A few months ago I gave you FTP access to our system,when you kindly provided the installation of Platinum Freichat. The connection is still working, just in case you want to take another look on how we solved this problem.
if you want to develop this in Freichat and/or Codoforum, I would gladly contribute with translation for Portuguese.
I use easyPHP 5.4.6 and the first time i have installed the forum, i got the Fatal error undefined function openssl_random_pseudo_bytes. By default, easyPHP has the extension OpenSSL disabled. This can be wise to alert the beginners to enable OpenSSL in your doc and during the installation process.
