Here's a handful of things we've done in response to your feedback.
Editor stylingWe've removed the gradient entirely from the unfocused editor, and changed the styling when the editor is focused so that the background now gets lighter on focus, in order to give an editing background that is more like the final destination background.
XenForo 2.2 RTE unfocused
XenForo 2.2 RTE focused
We have also rolled out this change to all input fields across the entire system, changing from the approach we've used since XenForo 1.x, where the background would get darker on focus.
Question thread changesWhile reading comments yesterday, it dawned upon us that there are times where the person who asks a question may not always be the person best qualified to select the correct answer.
For example, the person who asks the question "How do I charge my iPhone?" can select the correct answer by virtue of having tried each of the suggested responses, and picking the one that achieved the goal stated.
However, the question "What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?" does not lend itself to having the solution selected by the questioner, as they may not actually be able to distinguish a correct answer from a false one, in which case solution selection should probably be left to staff, or a user group that is specially identified as being qualified to select correct solutions.
Therefore, we have now implemented a new permission
forum.markSolution, which controls whether or not users can select solutions for their own questions. If they can't, then the only people who could mark a solution would be those with the forum moderator permission
forum.markSolutionAnyThread. If they don't, then the concept of marked solutions for questions essentially disappears.
Article linkingYou may have noticed yesterday that clicking on an article link within an article forum would take you to the first page of the thread, showing the article and the first page of comments, even if the article was highlighted as having New responses.
We've now changed this behaviour to act more like normal threads, so clicking on an article that you have already read that has new responses will jump you directly to the replies you have yet to read.
Content vote arrowsThese have been subject to quite extensive bikeshedding, but we have implemented some styling changes in response to feedback and we are discussing additional modifications. Watch this space.
Article user infoIn response to feedback, we have changed the display of article user info somewhat:
BugsAnd finally, we're busy responding to bugs identified by visitors and those that we notice ourselves.
We've fixed lots of defects in the editor UI, BB code mode, previewing and text handling, some errors with multi-quote and many more.
At this stage, we are rolling out fixes live to the site pretty much constantly, so don't be too suprised if you find that something you thought wasn't working properly appears to magically fix itself!
