Here a mockup how it could look like on nodebb.org forum:
v0.4.0 will also contain a nifty little feature that will show which users are currently replying to a topic, in addition to already showing who is viewing the topic.
For the designers here, the icon is defined as a FontAwesome glyph in the vanilla CSS. By default it is not styled, and shows only a keyboard next to the name.
Should replying be separated from browsing just like the other elements along that line?
Nice addition, @planner I think just having the keyboard icon appear next to the avatar is more than enough, separating it out isn't necessary.
have to ping @julian to remind him that it would be cool to put "<person> is replying to this thread" on the empty left side of the bottom post bar
You can wink at my all you want. Features like this are really not VIP, at least to me.
I'm still waiting for the main features slated for release in 0.4.x. Hopefully they will make it in 0.4.0. :wink2:
