What new features would you like to see on Coffee Forums UK?

Recommended Posts

If this were a roasting coffee bean, ramp up was slow, Ist crack barely audible, poor development, visually rough and unpalatable.

I can not find anything and that includes my mail box! It is difficult to use and does not inspire me to stay and browse what used to be a useful resource and entertaining place.

 

I have tried the 'burger' and find even that has been misspelled.

But guess what, under the burger, the 'donate' button works!

No surprises there then!

And not an fn chance .

If the sites owners want me to assist in making their www fortune they will have to do better than this dogs dinner. The site will certainly not be getting the visits from me that it did under the old format.

Not on tt. It only has a like button with no otions to change the icon it produces.

Can't seem to quote on tt any more either.

If I went outside today (and the if is a very big, capitalised IF), I'd only get wet skin around here...

Thanks for spending the weekend doing this.  

I guess only oddish thing is using Firefox (i didn't notice with Chrome) the pages display first what looks like a style free version of the page missing images, then it renders the page correctly.  See attached (well "attached below")

Many other minor "my preference" things i'm sure will come out like

  • Someway to customize colours per account.
  •  I prefer to read threads in reverse order on some forums, i can't see if that's possible,
  • So many new emojis (and the old favorites are at the bottom  :coffee::good: under Generic Smilies - perhaps they could move to the top?) 
  • Some way to auto-save a draft post, so if you leave the page you can come back.

My coffee extraction has not been affected by this so - all good :good:

 

edit: screenshot ------ v

Screenshot from 2019-05-19 12-15-46.png

 

I don't know what has changed ... but the Firefox strangeness has gone away :good: 

Thank goodness it was a big purple A flash bulb on each page. 

i must say, the forum is looking rather modern.. 🚀

I guess the phone generation doesn't actually need to write anything so lets give it a try:

Google Ads? Yes, I don’t like them all over the place. Can they stay low down (the bottom). I’m keen to see more coffee advertisers - and have them at the top ;)

OK so I am still in the anti camp

but

I wonder if it might be helpful if those folk who find this skin "difficult" took a look at the Invision Community site to give the powers that be some indication of what is good or at least more soothing...

https://invisioncommunity.com/files/category/162-themes/?filter=file_free

some other places:

https://www.themetree.net/themes/ (meh)

https://webflake.sx/files/category/72-themes/ (deflection maybe? for me)

https://www.ipsfocus.com/themes/ (dashboard, spectrum and chameleon for me)

This is not an exhaustive list and I am not saying we get to choose but we might have an input.

Some of them even look quite like a forum

Yes, I have a bit of a job in front of me for that one. I know how but it's going to take me some time. A bit like website brain surgery.

I'm gonna hit the hay, but I'm under the impression Google is getting to know our site. Ads should become coffee oriented soon and I'll continue to tweak it to give better experience.

@Tait Sometimes I’m not landing on the last page of a thread. When I click last then page it lands on doesn’t have any posts and says 'loading' but it doesn’t load 😟
