Hi All, we migrated to Discourse about 2 months ago, so far the 3 biggest “complaints” are:
White space - Users say there are excessive white space especially on the right hand side where the vertical slider is. So has anyone tried a different layout that reduces the amount of white space throughout the forum and especially the right hand column area? Would greatly appreciate to see if others have attempted to tackle the white space issue.
Vertical slider - the vertical scroll slider is not precise enough. Very often when you try to slide all the way to the very bottom, the slider will bounces up to one or 2 posts above the bottom. Would be nice if there is a way to improve the precision and feel of vertical slider. I think Flarum has an excellent slider, wonder if a similar version can be installed for discourse.
Fonts are too small and not enough contrast against the white background, I suppose these are easy cosmetic changes that can be handled with some CSS customizations?
All in all, the “complaints” about the new forum are mostly cosmetics in nature, so I guess the users are adapting to the new platform reasonably well in the grand scheme of things.
