For very long instances of Post # 1 in a topic, it’s not immediately obvious it’s already been solved without scrolling down. As a result it would be nice if the notification could be moved to above the content in the post.
Into the Title?
That isn’t a horrible idea, although I’m specifically talking about the location of the current paragraph with the check-box that’s inserted into the post.
Other than in “post controls”
Where are you thinking? Mock-up?
No, I’m not going to make a mockup of something so simple. I just meant inserting the new “solved”
<p> element above the post, not below it.
Ah, sorry, I was thinking of the check-square that appears in the “accepted answer” post, not the “solved by” in the OP
That’s in the
I guess it would be easy enough to have another plugin-outlet put into the top of the OP, but IMHO that might be somewhat distracting.
AFAIK that would be the only easy alternative as the template users “cooked” as a whole.
I really like this mockup, the only strong caveat from @codinghorror is that he wants a guarantee that there is no more than 2 glyphs on a topic.
I am marking this as planned, cause I plan to improve this.
How about eliminating the glyph and applying an automatic tag instead?
Please take a look at this mockup.
I really think Discourse should drop the [solved] icon in favor of an auto tag.
You could use CSS to change the icon to whatever you want.
I know I can hide the icon, what I can’t do is auto tags for: wiki, solved, poll, closed topic etc.
