New features in 2.3.0.beta2
New shortcut (g s) to access first suggested topic
Ever opened a topic, read the first post, and realized you don’t need to read the rest? Then find you have to scroll through all the posts to reach the suggested topics at the bottom? We have too. Now you can use the keyboard shortcut of g followed by s to load the first suggested topic from anywhere in the current topic.
Display report description when hovering on activity metrics
We now display each report’s description when hovering to make it easier for admins to know what each statistic details, without the need to open the full report.
New API to register topic footer buttons
We’ve simplified the process of adding buttons to the topic footer. Previously, buttons added to desktop used a different process than mobile, and this complicated plugins that needed to add such buttons. The API is now unified and simpler to use - plus is backwards compatible so existing plugins will not break with this change. We do encourage plugin authors to update their plugins to take advantage of the new system.
2.2.0 bug and UX fixes
This release also includes a number of small bug and UX fixes from our 2.2.0/2.3.0.beta1 release last week. Sites on all branches, stable, beta, and tests-passed are encouraged to update to resolve these issues, including:
- checkboxes were too close to other inputs
- minor button icon color fixes
in:titlesearch filter should work irrespective of order
- disable autocomplete on composer title
- register pan events for touch only
- login button icons should be white
