Feature requests for Vivaldi's new forum



  • @pafflick

    Grateful. As you can see below your reply at @Pesala is justly at the blogs of Vivaldi Team, part of users comments, that is not working as indicated. If you too desires to see this implanted, please give an up-vote to my request, for reinforce its implantation.

    @Quinca71 Yes, now I see that. My bad - I did somehow overlook that part. Perhaps the fact that you posted your request about the blog in the thread for request considering the forum led to my misinterpretation of your post.

    Nevertheless, from what I heard the platform for the blog (Joomla) is due to be changed to another one (Wordpress) in the near future and thus such a request is IMO a bit redundant at this time.



  • @pafflick
    Thanks for your attention. Given what you say about Joomla / Wordpress changes, aspect that I ignored, I agree that this request would be somewhat redundant and I reinforce my thanks to you.

    The fact is that I pointed my difficulties in where locate correctly this my request, at the original post, here So I left to an upper instance do it for me.

    @Quinca71 There's no dedicated subcategory for Vivaldi blog or webmail service and you were also told to add your request here by the forum's moderator (I haven't checked your initial thread earlier), so I guess you're excused. 😛 Anyway, there's no point to talk about it anymore, I think everything has been said and all we need to do now is to wait for the web devs to make their move. 😉



  • @pafflick

    I become glad with your reply, because I was accompanying some of your interventions about varied subjects on these forums. My impressions about it are the better possible. Then, I became worried about the effect of my recent previous posts involving you, afraid of have caused some discomfort, involuntarily. Now, I come back, again to thanks you the new add you have put.



  • This post is deleted!


  • I hope you introduce more security options. It should be possible to have an invisible account which does not appear on any list > user, search...and so on.

    @Telegram That sounds like a recipe for insecurity. All kinds of spammers and scammers would love to have secret accounts. It is much better if everyone can see what other users are doing here, so that they can report inappropriate forum use to the moderators.

    @Telegram Since you're not obliged to use your real name here or share any sensitive information about yourself, what would be a point of that?

    The team has an overview over all accounts and this remains so, it will never will be invisible to them. And a spammer becomes automatic automatically visible. When he starts to send people mails here, everybody will know him or her (;

    btw: User should decide about their security settings. And everyone here has different preferences. What's good for you is not om for everybody 😃

    No one who knows my vivaldi.net email address needs to see when I have logged in here or when I am online.
    It' also so easy for spammer to collect email accounts since there is no email alias.

    Since there are good reasons. Please don't for get: Everyone has different needs (;

    You can always create a separate account for the e-mail or for the forum and also you can select your on-line visibility to "Invisible".

    If there are any good reasons and you know about them, then you should provide them here. Otherwise, the webdev team @ Vivaldi might not make the effort to implement the features that you ask for. You need to provide a little more elaborated argument than "Everyone has different preferences"...



  • @pafflick
    more options for security settings speaks for it self. it's an argument in itself ^^ more security settings are never wrong, even facebook now offers quite a lot and it's a demand which should always be demanded by users and that's what i do ^^

    like i said, it's always good to have lot's of security settings and it would also be good to have that because of webmail. since there is not the possibility to create an email alias. ( btw: my second separated email account can be founded by the vivaldi search since the new forum software )

    But even if we ignore the webmail aspect. It should be possible to secure your account according to your preferences.

    It's a very broad term, one can keep making such vague requests forever... So, don't expect to see any new features considering the security anytime soon if you don't make specific requests.

    I'm not making any requests myself (considering the security of Vivaldi's webmail service) because I don't use it at all and I can't even tell what features it is missing.



  • (Vivaldi browser) Features requests area

    I was thinking, as usually the request thread become very big, why don't split all the requests in some macro areas?

    • New vivaldi version (let say 1.8 xD)
      • User interface / Theming requests
      • Bookmarks / history requests
      • Privacy requests
      • Extensions / plugins requests (link to its section)
      • (sticked) Things in production

    Probably I miss something, but maybe is better not to confuse people with many categories.



  • They need to get feature requests out of the forums. They're unwieldy, nobody reads the extremely long threads, and users need to repost every month or so.

    It's a solved problem. Just make a github already, Vivaldi.

  • @jplanvers you're not considering they don't want to have a publicly visible tracker, else it would have been already done. Live with it.



  • I'm trying to convince them otherwise.

    "Live with it" is a very hostile response. Perhaps you should take a deep breath.



  • @gaelle thanks for asking for feedback! 🙂 i have a few specific feature requests after using/browsing the forum for ~5 hours total, roughly in weighted order:

    1. remove (IMO excessive) vertical whitespace between posts and horizontal whitespace on either side of post area (for example, see reddit or hacker news). right now the interface is very "vertical", which would be fine on mobile, but using vivaldi on a nice wide desktop monitor i'd prefer the interface to be more "tree-like" (again, see reddit et al)

    2. move circular avatars away from the upper left position of posts - they impede reading, at least for english speakers, since we scan words top left -> bottom right. the big circular avatar is like a "marble on a string" that gets in the way of the eye following the linear "string" of text

    3. discussion threads should be open by default (perhaps default-open threads would be easier with less whitespace as in #1)

    4. switch the numbered list of "pages" at the bottom with a simple "more" button (again following reddit et al)

    Honestly the forum is already really good but IMO with a few of these improvements it would be amazing!

    @jplanvers They do not want a public bug-tracker. What part of that sentence do you not understand?
