Feature requests for Vivaldi's new forum


  • Vivaldi Team

    We love feedback and want to improve all the time. Let us know what we can do better! :slight_smile:



  • IMPORTANT: We should have the possibility to be ignored by the vivaldi search and it should be possible to hide & exclude my profile from visitors.

    It must be guaranteed that not everyone of my well-known, family members friends, colleagues and even random contacts have the possibility to analyze my online behavior.

    Especially if someone uses his account for email it's very important.

    Even Facebook offers this possibilities.

    I hope the Vivaldi team will offer these options very soon.

    @Telegram
    By default now all user profiles are hidden from guests, that means only logged in users can view your profile.
    User search is disabled for guests as well.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    I'd like forum to look by default like that:
    Brighter stripes

    ...or even beter that:
    Darker stripes

    And please replace this icon with something more intuitive like cog / arrow / ellipsis / ...
    I icon



  • @isak
    Thanks, i appreciate that :smiley: But i hope there will be an option that only friends can visit the profiles, like at the old forum.

    Oh and thanks for the emojis :saxophone: A section of the best smileys would be great (:

    I can neither see how many new postings have been made since I last read the thread nor can I even identify the threads which have unread postings.
    It seems clicking on a thread brings me to the first unread posting though.

    Beside this I have a lot to criticize about the new forum (white space, presumably optimized for mobile usage, "back" brings you to the top of the already changed previous page and you can't continue scrolling down the page, etc.) but since the majority seems to appreciate this development in all areas of the web I guess I have to shrug and try to get along with this IMHO inconveniences but I would very much appreciate the look and feel of a classic ("real") forum.

    Thanks for the dots!

    I have noticed that this line behaves funny when I use translated version of forum
    moved item

    BTW... Anyone has idea why I cannot see this lines when I browse forum (I use Vivaldi ofc), but they are visible on screenshots? (Win + Vivaldi x64)
    Horizontal blue line



    • The biggest problem thus far is that the compose window does not fit if you zoom in too far. I can work around this by zooming in even more while editing to use the entire window width.
    • The long list of smilies is just silly :upside_down:
    • I am happy with inserting a signature from a note when it's needed, instead of in every post.

    @ROTFL you should see this blue line below the last unread post in the topic.



  • I think I have explain all bug find in private message... If I have a time, I think add all bug find here.



  • @isak Placing the highlighted line BELOW the post is kinda counter-intuitive. A background color change of the last unread (or linked) post would be better (fading out from light yellow/blue/grey or other color to white).

    EDIT: I've made an example of this and it looks neat! 😀 Try it out!

    /* These are just some minor tweaks */
    li.highlight {
    	margin-top: -20px;
    	padding-top: 20px;
    }
    li.highlight>hr {
    	border-color: #eee !important;
    	box-shadow: none !important;
    }
    span.bookmarked {
    	top: 18px !important;
    }
    /* The animation goes here: */
    @keyframes fadeOut {
    	0% {
    		background-color: #ffffee;
    	}
    	100% {
    		background-color: #fff;
    	}
    }
    li.highlight {
    	background-color: #ffffee;
    	animation: fadeOut 6s linear forwards;
    }
    

    You'll need Stylish, User CSS or another similar extension that allows you to add custom CSS to websites, in order to use that code.

    I edited this for a second time, to improve the code. All elements are in their previous positions now. I have to credit @Saskatchewan for providing the code to remove the blue line. 😜



  • How does one upload an image to add a screen shot to a post?

    ![alt text](image url)

    Do we have to upload every image to a web server or Flikr to link to it?

    How do I insert a Horizontal Rule?


    OK, three times underscore works.

    oO
    I would never guess :P

    @Pesala
    We had image attaching capabilities on previous forum version but uploading it to external hosting server had worked better.
    I just get used to do it this way... ;)

    Another problems with chat window

    • Please replace current font with for example the font used by forum posts. Current one is hard to watch...
    • It is possible to drag chat window out of wisible area so drabbable captionbar is invisible ;)


  • @Pesala said in Feature requests for Vivaldi's new forum:

    Currently yes, but uploading images onto this forum has worked just a few days ago. You have to report this as a bug.

    @Pesala said in Feature requests for Vivaldi's new forum:

    If I try with three hyphens, it just treats the preceding text as a heading

    Just use underscore _ instead of hyphens -


    That's how. 😉

    Yes. There are too many now.



  • Please use a normal weight font in the smiley's. The bold face is overpowering.



  • @pafflick I cannot get used to it because it takes way too long.

    We also need to upload 7z and Zip files as attachments at least, if not PDF, and other common formats.



  • The forum is quite ok right now. Just a few requests concerning future development....

    Please don't introduce signatures. They take up too much space and basically only serve the ego of the individual poster. A short "about me" section on the profile could very much serve the same purpose if something like this is even needed.

    Please don't introduce emojis ( OOOPs :D ). They distract from content and text-based smileys always look better anyway. And if you do want emojis look at chat platforms like tlk.io for a prime example on how to do it. They let them be grey + simple -- and for the better.

    And yeah, being able to exclude forum boards from displays such as "recent" would be very helpful.

    And before I forget it, pictures can be very overwhelming too, it would be awesome if you could introduce a setting to automatically hide all pictures in posts. Instead display a little show/hide picture button whenever a picture is posted. If I want to see it I just click it, if not it doesn't get in my way.



  • @pafflick - Testing your code. I assume it's for Stylish?

    It works very well. Nice job. Can you remove the blue line?
