I thought it would be good to have a one-stop-shop for things like bugs, feature requests, & missing functionality pulled from various discussions.
Feel free to reply with anything I've missed (or things that are just rejected) and I'll update this first post as things get fixed/added or new bugs/requests come in.
I've tried to link to the discussions on each topic so far.

[ALWAYS ON] These are tracks we will always be working on - I don't view them as having an 'end-date' but rather that we keep working on them and improving them.

Search - Until we're better than Google, search will always need improvements.
  • Given Google's $991 Billion market cap, they do have more resources to invest in their search product than we do ?so they might be hard to beat. With that being said, we still have a good amount of runway to improve search. See the roadmap feedback on things we will look at tackling.
Missing admincp functionality
  • AdminCP is going to continue to be a project until we can make as many people happy as possible. We'll keep working at this one, and continue to add new & improved functionality (including Warning Improvements plugin, Alter Ego detection, password resets, forum announcements, etc.)
[SCHEDULED FOR Q1]
Premium memberships
Threads started by user from profile page (Just rename latest activity?)
Warning improvements plugin

[DESIGN COMPLETED, WAITING ON DEV]
Dark mode fixes
Line too long under avatars

[DISCOVERY PHASE / WE KNOW WE WANT TO DO IT]
[BUG FIX] "A moment ago" bug - Thread 2
[ADVANCED EDITOR] Missing editor options for advanced users - BBcode/RTE
[ADVANCED EDITOR] Tables need to convert & be editable - Thread ID links as well
Dedicated classifieds area functionality
Threads I've participated in view is missing
Alter Ego detection & reporting
Thread title and prefix changes have no history
Profile page "Latest Activity" really isn't
Userbit post count link to a search of their posts
Edited/History link - Auto scroll to revision history box
Dedicated quotes & mentions categories with unlimited history like reactions

[NOT YET PLANNED]
"Who Posted" tool in thread listings
Previous Thread < | > Next Thread
User stats such as average daily posts
See current reply bans for user
Any username changes to be logged for admin view


[ICEBOX - DECISION ON WHETHER TO PROCEED REQUIRED]
Infinite scroll for home page & eventually threads
Post titles

[YET TO BE PRIORITIZED]
Admins need a list of all the variables that cannot be seen via admincp
Content tagging errors preventing editing
Post count missing from profile pages
Post count calculations off & mixed nomenclature

Soft deleted threads should not be excluded from the "What's New" tool for staff members
Edit Post Dropdown - Hover over Tooltip Name is Borked
FAQ entry to explain avatar embellishments.
FAQ language edits for username changes to curtail frequency
Profiles - "Latest Activity" isn't & "Discussions" is really just all posts made.
Timestamps aren't switching from relative after an hour as they should.

Thanks Mike. This is super helpful for the @Product team .... I'm going to go through the list and note the ones already in progress, and expected delivery date if known... After that, any chance someone wants to take a stab at prioritizing what is leftover?

Admin rites and premium members rites would be my top two priorities, actually started a thread to be added to on admin rites a day ago.

I would really like to see a much better and customisable post ratings system.

Just clicking 'like' to a post is really not how it should be, or used to be.

We have lost just so many members because of this and they have all flocked to a rival forum which has proper post ratings.

Great catch report

Etc etc enable a proper response to a post from the community, and members love it.

Losing this basic function has been a disaster for us.

I don't see our "Vehicle Details" ability in that list (unless it's incorporated in one already listed)--can't even see it let alone access it (and yes I know it's an oldie but it's also going on 7 months now). Please don't shoot the messenger 😉

Check out this thread as Reactions will be coming back hopefully in Q3 of 2021:

SLK guys will be first to hear of those once I have a date from Product.

From my perspective this once again proves that one size does not fit all, on my forum we stay away from negative 'inserts' (and always have even under the old vB), to me if someone doesn't like something that has been said then they should say so and why, to fulfill the discussion. The old 'like' actually describes several of the positive 'inserts', just not the negatives, now if each forum could decide what they wanted to include then that is another direction, my 2 cents worth.
But I did like the old jiving banana.

I used to like many of the old emoticons.

Even though my Admin banned me from using my favourites. ;)

Have to say that on an angling site, anglers do like to award a 'great catch report' trophy when someone does a nice report.
The loss of this function and other reactions has knocked us for six to be honest.
We had all sorts of reactions that could be given and they were very very popular.

Just a small contribution to "what could be better" topic, and not much of my business, but:

This is the current setup of the "Announcements" section of OneFora:

  • Announcements & Release Notes
  • Feature Development & Feedback
    • Product, Design & UX Feedback
  • Bug Reports & Feature Requests
    • Bug Reports
      • Resolved Bugs
    • Feature Requests
      • Completed Features
  • Blogs


I think this setup would be a bit more efficient:

  • Announcements, Release Notes & Blogs
  • Product, Design & UX Feedback
  • Bug Reports
    • Resolved Bugs
  • Feature Requests
    • Completed Features

Also, I would suggest to change "Announcements" as the name of the section info "Fora Development".

Regarding "Fora" I was wondering if there is a public page we can point to that explains what Fora is. Out of curiosity, some people ask about our software, and it would be nice to have a story ready.

Thanks, makes sense to me.

I will review it with the team and if others agree tweak it next week.

Fora is still pretty far out so we will share more info here as we are able to.
