Good forum needs some feathures – New ideas!
Hello to developers,
I really love bbPress! Simple and fast! Integration options to WordPress is good way but I really love a idea about stand alone forum solution. Before that, there is few things that should be consideret to next release.
Unread post/topics – Is it really hard to made this? This is main problem of all lightweight forums scripts – no marknig of unread post and parent topics. Just put that to the core and give options to admin. If they are interested about that fetahure they’ll enable it. Or just give us some up-to-date plugins that works and are supported by official dev team.
Quoating and Posting reply – Light weight doesnt mean “no bbcode” or another nice code like !Texy. But please, no HTML or worst – XHTML STRONG tag as formating for messages! I really like simple way to add comments but i cant stay manual formatin of text with HTML. Its such waste of our time!
And where is Quoting support like WP has?
Allowed quicktags – Please, give me options set allowed tags from admin. Or just give better documentation! WordPress is the best because good documentation! I cant spend all day looking for right file just because its not at documentation and sometimes its impossible find some reasonable answers on google.
Automatic tags – This is not serious problem. Just consider…
Slug – Slug like WP. I miss this feathure. Its hard to fix slug problem if i cant directly acces to that from admin. Only way i can do it is mysql.
Thats it! Nothing more. I am new here and i dont follow main goals of project but this is my opinion why is bbPress so uncomfortable to me and my friends.
Its just my opinion and I hope you will consider make some serious progress on it.
Sorry for my english.
PS: I hope there will be more good ideas. Topics like this should be general, sticked.
