Is it possible to have thumbnails for talkyard? I think that would help users to process information not just through text but also through images and give an idea what the thread may be about. I kinda tried it by just uploading an image in the post ...
What's missing in Talkyard
Here are things relatively many ask about, and that have not yet been implemented: Custom groups. Mobile app notifications and desktop notifications. (Currently, you get notified via email instead.) "Enterprise" login: LDAP / ActiveDirectory login, S...
Developer Diary, 2019, Quarter 1
I'm starting a developer diary, inspired by Flarum and their Dev Diary (https://discuss.flarum.org/d/12325-dev-diary-beta-8). — I feel I've been working and working and working without telling people what I'm working with. And things take longer than...
Making the topic list buttons understandable?
People who don't use computers a lot, get confused by the topic list buttons. That is, these: They think that "Active, New, Top" refer to the "All categories" button, and are unsure about if the list below shows categories, or topics (they don't both...
A seperate page for New Thread submission
Having a dedicated page for posting a new thread would help the integration on my website, where I have a sidebar featuring the recently created topic titles, and a "New Thread" submit button, to encourage thread creation. This separate page to direc...
Cleaner Code Todo List
Post comments here, about how to improve the Talkyard source code. Then I or someone will look into doing those things. Example: A React.js component makes you confused, by mixing presentation things and application logic. Or there's a Scala class wi...
Real-time notification stops working
Hello! I've deployed a talkyard for my community but after a few seconds the real-time notification stops working and I need to refresh the page. I've check the logs and I have a "client prematurely closed connection while sending to client" right al...
Allow email domains be black/whitelisted? Perhaps to a single domain?
Locking down registration to a single domain would be greatly appreciated; that is, denying registration approval if the email is not email@example.com where the domain somewhere.com is configurable?
Bug: If adding a 2nd Gmail email, the verification email gets sent to one's 1st address
To reproduce: Create an account with a Gmail address. Then go to https://talkyard-server/-/users/the-username/preferences/account and connect a 2nd Gmail address. The verification email, to check that this addr works, gets sent to the first and prima...
Configuring OpenAuth login for your own Talkyard
Here's brief info about how to configure Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and GitHub OpenAuth login, for your self hosted Talkyard server. If you try to follow these instructions — mabye you'd like to contribute with images and screenshots that illustrates t...
How can i add languages?
I wanted to translate from English to Portuguese from Portugal, is it possible? Or do i have to translate and send .ts to the developers?
Talkyard Roadmap 2018-11-26
Here's what's next for Talkyard. Feedback & change suggestions are welcome; you can add a comment below. If you compare with the previous roadmap you'll notice that things have taken longer than planned — and that's one reason why I'll focus on makin...
Turning media URLs into simple HTML previews of the resource
A feature that I would like to see here is that of turning media URLs into simple HTML previews of the resource. Something like the onebox feature of Discourse.org Onebox as a library is even free to use and can be implemented in other systems too ht...
Topic type 'Link'
I was looking at the topic type function here and I think this is a great feature, but I miss the 'link type' topic. Users sometimes like to share just links, and this type of topic could come very handy. Reddit is built around this feature!
Is a good idea to have a showcase board here, so we can see Talkyard forums in action.
How to setup multiple instances on one server?
I’ll like to setup forums for three different communities but want to do so using just one server. Did not find this in the installation instructions. Will like to know where to start. I’ll do a pull request to the installation instructions when I ge...
Making Talkyard contributor friendly
Talkyard is open source, and it'd be good if it was simpler to contribute, without running into confusion e.g. when building images, or reading the source code. This is a roadmap for making it simpler, to contribute. A simpler build system. Assuming ...
Floating action button for new topics
Here another idea: instead of the 'new topic' button on the top of the frontpage I would like to see a floating button for new the new topic action. This is practical and mor modern. Twitter has it as Google plus and a lot of other aplications https:...
Embedded forum categories
Right now, one can embed Talkyard discussion pages, to use as embedded blog comments, like Disqus comments. (Here's a landing page for such embedded comments: /blog-comments/. ) It'd be nice if one could also embed whole forum categories, and have em...
K8s, Swarm, Traefik and Talkyard
It'd be good if Talkyard was simple to configure together with Kubernetes and Docker Swarm. And Traefik or Caddyserver (proxy servers with automatic HTTPS). Maybe these could be the first steps: (or "all" that's needed?) Provide a sample Docker-Compo...
Using / installing talkyard as the comment system for a wordpress site
Hello, just like discuss, how would we use talkyard as the comment system for our wordpress website? I get that we would need a separate talkyard server, but then how do we integrate the comments to show up / be part of the wordpress comment system?
Slow server @talkyard
It's getting increasingly frustrating that we're being met with "Server is slow right now" messages on a regular basis. Is there any fix for this coming up or will this continue to happen as often as it does now? Customers are complaining about it, i...
How do you want to build and upgrade, yourself?
For now, to build your own Talkyard images, you can do as described in: docs/testing-images-in-vagrant.md, however, the build script is nowadays called s/build-and-release.sh (not just s/release.sh). The testing-images-in-vagrant.md doc doesn't, howe...
Email/SMTP config forces to define an user and password, should be optional
We are using google as our relay SMTP server. We have to use that server without user and pass. Talkyard uses fake mail if user or password is not defined: https://github.com/debiki/talkyard/blob/67c11a773f8975410663b41723ece21214076e1c/app/debiki/Ma...
Email Replies (a la Discourse)
Hey gang - currently running Discourse but would love to switch to Talkyard. Does the app currently support email replies directly to the forum? If not, is there any plan to implement this in the future? Thanks, Jerry
Self-hosted installation - docker containers guidance
Hi, I think I am ready to move from Disqus comments to Talkyard comments for my blog. I would like to use self-hosted solution. I don't want to run any scripts/compose file offered, mainly because I already have my website running using docker-compos...
upgrade docker-compose file draft
Hi, It was possible to use the new features of docker-compose. Please find a sample docker-compose.yml attached: docker-compose.yml (8.08 kB) Regards, Mustafa
Debiki as an Embedded Comment System?
Would you like to embed Debiki's comment system on a website of yours? You could then create static HTML pages, and nevertheless get a dynamic comment section, without needing any database. It'd be similar to e.g. Disqus. It could work as follows: Ex...
Re-send invitations to the same user
Hi @KajMagnus, I had this case that a user discarded his invitation by mistake and asked me to send a new one. I tried to send a new invitation but Talkyard refuses to send another e-mail. I see the progress wheel flashing for a second and then nothi...
Is it possible to use LDAP Authentication to sign in a user?
What API endpoints could be useful to you? What are your higher level goals, with calling them / what do you want to accomplish?
My users and I used a chat the other day and now I have 45+ notifications waiting for me. I figured viewing the most recent one from the chat would clear them all but it did not. Am I cursed to a life of 99+ notifications eventually?
User logins are not persisted forever
Many of our customers and myself included are experiencing that we have to log in again very often. I'm guessing this could be related to server update rollouts, in which the sessions are purged maybe? Seems like an alternative solution is needed in ...
Drafts feature randomly resets the input field
I'm guessing it came about around the same time the draft feature was introduced. OS: macOS 10.12.6 Browser: Google Chrome 68.0 I'm seeing different errors: Old drafts from different posts showing up when creating a new thread or a new post instead o...
Fix bug: Old drafts pop up again. And add draft indicators
Here @chrscheuer mentions that: I still sometimes encounter that I have posted something and then when I try to answer to another post/comment then I'll get the draft up for something that was already posted. To better understand when this happens, I...
Implement OpenGraph Metadata per Topic
Hey @KajMagnus! I think I mentioned this before, but I'd like to suggest that each topic has it's own metadata tags with OGraph info included. As it is right now, sharing a link from the Talkyard install shows no metadata: https://files.warmbo.com/s/...
Bulk inviting people, via email address list
It'd be good if there was a way to upload a file with email addresses, and invite say 50 people at once — rather than clicking and typing 50 times to invite them one at a time. What about this comma-separated-file format: (namely each user on a separ...
We have "Num first posts to review" set to 1, Num first posts to approve to 0 and Num first posts to allow to 0, but we continue to get notified for each and every post by all our members (even if their trust levels have been manually set to Full mem...
