Forum Updates: 2018-10-05
Here's a few more updates almost exactly one month since the last round. This time, however, the updates are relatively minor but they do offer some enhancement to the overall forum. If anything looks a little odd, you may need to refresh your browser cache.
The topic footers have been enhanced to show related posts based on tags. This is where topic tags become useful -- if you associate specific tags when you start new topics, you contribute to our tag ecosystem. As more tags are used, the more often you'll see "Related Topics" in the topic footer area that are appropriate to the topic you are currently viewing.
We've also added some live statistics to the topic footers that show users who are currently viewing that topic, and those who've recently visited.
Forum and Topic Viewers
You'll now see how many other people are viewing forums and topics.
We've added a Popular Tags cloud to the home page under the Community Summary section.
Plus a few miscellaneous bugs were squashed.
I don't know if it's considered a bug or not, but I've noticed an inconsistency in the presence of the Recent Posts link in the area at the bottom of the page (below the Forum Statistics bar). Sometimes it's there, other times it's not.
Yeah, the stats box has been doing weird things. Just when I think I've fixed it, it wigs out again. And it's so random...
Did you ever manage to bring Tapatalk functionality to the current setup?
