Everyone,

Now that the forum as been live for nearly a month and you've had some time to use it; tell me what you like and what you'd like to see improved.  I tried to cover as much functionality - while maintaining a clean look and feel - as possible during the design and build with Alex, but we're always looking for suggestions to make things even better. 

I'm looking forward to your responses,

Jason

The only thing I see that I like on other sites is a way to bring up just new posts sense your last visit or a more positive way to see where new posts are. I see a slight color change in the category icon where a new post is..maybe a slightly stronger color change. :)

You mean something like what I've attached?

It doesn't display on mobile, which is an issue, but I am looking into adding this menu, or at the very least, the New Posts/Replies link somewhere in the future.

If you're needing it in mobile, the address is simply cfmoto-forum.com/unread

If you've got any more questions or you were talking about something else, please let me know.

Thanks,

Alex

@murdo @NMKawierider

Both of you asked questions regarding the Recent Posts link. As of today, I have implemented the account section, including those links, for mobile.

You are 100% correct. I believe we have a simple issue with mapping. I will look into it and let you know when it is fixed. Thanks for bringing this up, @mayor hal

Hey @bezerk1, could you give me a little more detail or an example of what you're requesting?

I actually was working on implementing that. There's an issue with how our theme implements it that will take some coding to fix. I will keep you posted.

Hey @bezerk1. I've fixed the issue with the posts not showing. To view this, you simple needs to look at the bottom of the index/home page (AKA the Info Center).


I've got it set to show the 20 most recent posts. Do you think that is a reasonable number or too few/too many?

Does this meet your request or would you like something else?

Alex

Here's a weird thing. Now when I click on my user name in the top bar it no longer has a drop-down menu with the new posts and stuff.
