Hey, the forum looks great! I love some fresh colours. However, it's one tiny thing that bothers me. I was used to browse the forum with javascript disabled, especially on the mobile. This has some drawbacks, but the page is loaded faster and, most importantly (for me), was that I could see the complete lists of last posts, without any text cut off, at a glance. In the previous forum version, text cut off was made with javascript, and now it's done on the server-side.

Ah well unfortunately I won't be able to do anything about that.

They do now have an app but I'm not sure if there's value in adding us to it - theoretically that would run faster but probably wouldn't solve your issue.

Maybe a little off-topic, but while we are speaking about javascript: is there any particular reason why Stripe is loaded on every forum page instead of just checkout page? Seems redundant, but maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture here.

Thanks Pete. Is it somehow possible to try this app?

We'd have to submit the forum to their app to get it included. I'm not sure what the process is exactly but you do lose navigation to the rest of the site - it basically just shows the common parts of the forum and throws out any theme customisations from what I can tell.

No idea. Maybe when you add stuff to the basket it allows you to complete the purchase from anywhere, but you'd think even if you paid via a modal it would just load when the modal loads 🤷🏻‍♂️

There is JS and CSS hooked in from the main site too in a very basic fashion to make theme upgrades simple (like we're including all of UIKit for the header) so not sure if it's from there but I don't imagine it is.

Like I say, it largely "is what it is" with each upgrade because they like to change things every so often.

The email notifications for subscribed topics now seem to be truncated when they used to include the full post.

@Pete, is it possible to change a setting so that emails are not truncated?

There used to be a "solved" feature we do not have anymore but with this last upgrade somehow it sneaked in again 🙂

These Invision Community members love experimenting...

Forum looks cool after the update. Thanks, @Pete! But the topic titles in the list (and probably other stuff) became smaller and my 4 eyes are having trouble seeing 'em. Is it possible to scale fonts up a bit?

I agree with Ivan about typography, font is somehow thinner, sharpen, in some places smaller, breadcrumbs contrast, etc. Last theme for me has great readability (easier to read and easier to notice new things...). This theme is nice and attractive but probably my eyes not good like before and get tired quickly (probably that is my main problem 🙂).

I really appreciate who do all this job and thanks for that!

Best regards.

@Pete - I'd like to second this - is it an easy fix to show the full message in the email?

Thanks!

I found the setting for this and turned it off:

I get why they added it, but for some communities it makes more sense than others.

Personally I think they could have added a setting to control the truncate length to be a "best of both worlds" but switching it off is fine for this forum.
