Some kind of paging function would also be good for mobile devices where RAM is frequently at a high premium.
NodeBB causes not-infrequent browser crashes on my iPad2 on longer threads. When I click a link that takes me to the 60th post in a thread or something, there is a long delay as the slower browser begins by loading the op oldest posts in batches. It would be good if there were a way to make it skip doing that and take me directly to the unread posts (without switching the full application to paged mode).
Perhaps on mobile devices you could add a secondary navigation bar with the paging functions (arrows, "displaying X-Y of Z", etc).
Place a link to a moo.do outline in the original post. Presto, integration without really integrating the code. Even this half baked setup is superior to all dedicated pm solutions that I have tried. For me, efficiency is the primary factor when evaluating software. How quickly we can download the data we need and upload our input. Number of clicks is a useful metric.
Having every resource available on the home page is a highly efficient design for a workflow tool. I view nodebb as the best version of this concept.
Its easy to recommend the popular product. Actually testing all of them to isolate value is challenging. Try not to anchor yourself until you've done the research.
@Pilvinen said in How to improve Nodebb - few suggestions from the top of my head:
Thread tools: Edit poster/adopt post
The admin should be able to switch the owner of the post. (right now I have orphan posts left over from import and the only way to change their owner is to use the redis-cli). Probably not a very popular/useful feature in general, but should be simple enough to implement because why not?
Is this possible yet?
