@Gwen-Dragon said in Please avoid separating Forum sections per platform:
@tomica The secion for all platforms is the forum https://forum.vivaldi.net/category/2/support-troubleshooting
The splitting by OS is useful. Issues differ on most OS. A issue with GPU or audio on Windows is not the same as on Mac.
Agree 100%. I don't want to have to wade through say 20 post talking about how to fix a issue in Windows just to find the one that tells me how to fix the issue in Linux.
@barbudo2005 That would weight things heavily in favour of the most popular requests.
It is best if users search for what they want, then vote for it. If they really want to find the most popular requests they can sort the forum by order of votes.
@poto said in The PiP window can be clicked globally to control pause and play:
it is recommended that the forum open up user permissions to allow them to modify the topic posting category
No, that is a moderator's job to move.
@Pesala The text is deselected when the mouse button is clicked down. Not a dodgy or faulty mouse. I also tried in the latest soprano version (which has 0 extensions, 0 modifications, and virtually all settings at default except for a couple of key binds) and the same exact thing happens there. This is consistent with how it works on all other sites in Vivaldi, including the one I posted a screenshot from in the OP (which was from a XenForo forum).
I also did a test with Edge, and it seems like clicking down on links after selecting text does not clear the selection in that browser. I guess that is the way it is supposed to work also in Vivaldi, but it clearly doesn't.
The way XenForo handles is still superior to Vivaldi's way, though, since XenForo still quotes correctly even when clicking the reply/quote button deselects the text.
@Pesala , most of the modern browsers are Chromium based, with similar results.
But as I said before, a test that results shows the reasons for a possible slowness of a browser would be desirable.
Comparatives have more to do with sport than with real reasons. Is my browser capable of working well on pages like Chrome Experiments or The FWA (Vivaldi does)? Excellent, if not, use another browser. Real life tests.
We already have sections for games, and book /TV show chat usually fits into "chit-chat".
I guess if there end up being loads of topics about stuff like that it could get its own section, but for now feel free to just use the existing areas.
@Pesala said in More Help Needed on Markdown:
@potmeklecbohdan The link has gone, but people should read help.
Yes of course, people should always read help files. But help should also be very easy to find, and in my case I suspect I may never have noticed https://help.vivaldi.com/article/markdown-formatting/ if not for this thread.
The forums currently have no help links at all that I can see, and I personally would never have thought to look on https://help.vivaldi.com for information on using the forum. My instinct in seeing https://help.vivaldi.com is that it's for browser help pages, not forum help pages. In hindsight I can see how using help.vivaldi.com for all official Vivaldi help pages does make sense, but not having any help links from the forum means it's a non-intuitive connection to me.
