  1. Idea to enhance forum functionality

    Look into using discourse.org functionality to completely replace the forums feature. They already have options to embed a discourse instance into an existing web site for this purpose. Adopting discourse.org tech would resolve at least 25 feature requests I have reviewed today!

  2. Connect Forums to Tapatalk

    The forums cannot be easily accessed from mobile devices, and should either be able to connect to Tapatalk, or another mobile app that allows for mobile access. Or include forum access in the WildApricot Member App

  3. Allow changing the order in which sticky topics are displayed.

    Allow changing the order in which sticky topics are displayed. We have quite a few in some fora, and the order they were entered in is not generally the reverse of the order in which we would like them displayed.

  4. Open Forums

    There should be a option in forums to be an open forum (where you do not have to subscribe)

  5. Make Forum and Topic subscriptions consisten

    The inconsistency of subscribing to forums vs. topics is very confusing and difficult to explain to members.

    Current behavior for subscribing:
    You subscribe to forum on the forum page and then go to your Profile to change frequency. When you Create a Topic you get an option to subscribe and set frequency on the new topic page and don't need to go to your profile. Why can't you do the same for the Forum?

    Emails:
    If you subscribe to a forum you only get the titles as a summary. If you subscribe to the Topic you get the full post.…

    Please enable editing of the date in the forum discussion posts. Right now you can't alter the date at all.

  9. Allow limiting of forum administration to specific admin role

    Currently it appears that any level of administrator can perform administrative activities in a forum: a member or events admin, for example, can move messages between forums, delete messages, post pictures in a forum message, etc.

    I feel that forum administration should only be allowed by someone with the "website" admin role.

    Ideally, there needs to be a new "forum administrator" role so that trusted members can act as moderators without gaining other unrelated administrative privileges.

  10. See how many views a forum post has received

    I've had a number of our members ask if it is possible to see how many times a forum post has been viewed. All our forums are 'Member' only and this feature would be very useful to review and judge member engagement. I hope there are others who would find this a useful feature if it was deemed acceptable to be introduced.

  11. close a forum post to further comments

    I would like to see the ability to close a forum post to further comments without needing to delete it. The only options I presently see are edit, merge, move or delete.

  13. Easier tools to archive/manage old discussion forum threads

    Help! We're getting overrun with old discussion forum posts that never age off the forum, so admins have to go in and manually delete the oldest. This is inefficient (an hour each week for me). A better way would be to: a)have a 'best-before' option (i.e. 3 months) where anything older is automatically deleted, or b) offer an admin tool that lists all posts, allows sorting by multiple fields, and allows delete or archive of single or multiple posts.

  14. have a list of users that are subscribed to a forum.

    I would like a list of users that are subscribed to a forum. If not the list, maybe a count.

  15. Allow deleting all topics older than a certain date

    We have some forums where there are 50 or more pages of topics - some of which go back 4 or 5 years. I know that topics can be deleted manually, but only one by one, and the way it works now, if you remove the oldest topic, it takes you back to the top of the forum.

    I would like to have a way of removing all topics older than a specific date. This would allow pruning of the forum backlogs in an orderly - and much more efficient - fashion.

    Frank responded

    Thanks for posting Rick, we’ll need more comments/supporters before we can proceed, but it’s a good suggestion.

  16. Discussion forum management

    Enable better management of discussion boards by moving threads to different topics, etc.

  17. Enable "No Access" Forum Setting for Public

    Hopefully this is a small change, but a useful one.

    I would like to create a forum for private discussions among Board of Director members.

    So as not to rub it in members' noses that there's a forum they are excluded from, I don't want it listed in the Forums List page.

    So I restrict it to members of the Directors group.

    Good: Members can't see it in the Forums list page.

    Bad: Public visitors can see it. So can Members if they log out.

    This thread http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308929-general-discussion-and-questions/suggestions/8825143-how-do-i-restrict-forum-access-to-members-only explains the reasoning behind disabling Public No Access. That's fine if you…

  18. Customize forum notification emails

    I'm going to have a hard time getting people to subscribe to our neighborhood association forum vs the "next door" forum that has been building over the last year here. I'm attaching visuals for reference.

    The wild apricot email summary is visually uninviting and instead of asking people to engage by hitting "reply" it offers them a chance to "unsubscribe" first.

    It doesn't include a picture so it's not as personal as it could be and I don't see an option for people to sign up to receive every message in a forum as opposed to a daily summary should…

  19. Number of topics in the forum list

    It would be nice to be able to configure the number of topics that are listed per page. The current setting of 10 is VERY low and our members are used to seeing quite a few more than that.

  20. See the post you're replying to

    I'd like to see what I'm replying to without having to include the whole thing in my reply (as with quote). Also, the nomenclature is not what a user expects... most of my users didn't bother to even try "quote" before asking how to get that type of functionality.
