I had several ideas...
1.) What would it look like if the entire quick reply form was moved from the bottom to directly underneath the Topic starter's post.
2.) Additionally, a quick reply form would appear when quoting to someone's comment.
3.) Truncating replies.
I think it's pretty interesting how on Reddit, you can follow a chain of replies. Whereas in IPB, it's a long list of thread. I imagine for someone casually browsing they'd be overwhelmed with the amount of replies to sort through. I would love to explore options on how to display comments so that things are simplified.
I'm not super fond of the idea of having to scroll all the way to the bottom of a topic to reply.
I wonder if it would make things easier for users to reply.
Making things easier/more efficient = more engagement!
Have any ideas to make replying easier? Any thoughts on how to lay comments out so there is more content in-view per scroll? I'm interested to hear what the community thinks.
after thinking about it, it should have its own table, and use an unique id as foreign key
that way we don't need to store same value over and over again
this also helps to build a tag suggestion base on existing tags (similar to @ function )
I am about to wrap up a plugin, depending how many ppl interest i might work on it
not terribly hard to have a db field for each post row store hashtags, on clicking returns search result of all post containing the tag
also good idea to add searching weight value to regular search for tags
