Add categories and default chat channel in sidebar
Coming from Slack, the left-hand sidebar seems very under-used and makes Talkyard hard to navigate in comparison. I think two changes would really help: List categories in sidebar. This would make it easy to see what categories there are and also mak...
Consider making likes more visible
When I like something myself, it's very visible thanks to the red heart. But if somebody else likes my post, 99% of the time I don't realize it, since I don't get notified about it and it visually is pretty dimmed. Perhaps once the notification syste...
Request Entity is Too Large
We still have quite a few users who can't share screenshots on our forum. It makes a lot of bug hunting incredibly difficult. I guess it's because they have retina screens or something like that, which makes the images big. Would it be possible to: H...
Bug in Dropbox video embedding
See the post here: https://forum.soundflow.org/-2534#post-3 The user has posted a Dropbox link, which gets turned into a video element that is unplayable. In that case, having just the raw link would make it easier to see the video.
Drafts are lost when clicking Resume editing
I finally had a draft I actually wanted to edit... But then I clicked Resume editing and it was lost. It was in this thread: https://forum.soundflow.org/-2825/track-output-window-follow-track-selection#post-3
Excuse my ignorance, but I am new to Linux and am wanting to install talkyard in an old machine I found to play around with the setup. Is it compatible with centos 5? I can probably upgrade to 6 as a side project, but want to make sure what I’m getti...

Hi, I'm playing with Talkyard using the Hugo instructions at https://hugo-demo.talkyard.io/posts/demo-and-instructions. I'm using localhost to view my blog posts. When I click Reply to a post, the displayed count of comments is incremented; if I canc...

Feature request: Statistics
It would be nice to have a central place (I imagine the Admin dashboard) where we could see some simple site-wide statistics, like total number of threads, total number of posts (per month maybe, as a graph, eventually). Here and now just the total n...
Deleted posts can appear in search
How often does the search engine update? I'm asking since we had a user whose posts I had to delete, and subsequently, I also deleted my own posts that answered his. Some of these posts, while deleted, still appear in searches. Is this just because t...
Bug in Permissions?
I'm not quite sure if it's a bug or a if I'm misunderstanding something: There's a permission for "Edit other people's topics" and one for "Edit wiki posts". In my opinion it makes sense that if someone has the "Edit wiki posts" he can edit ALL wikif...
Core members shouldn't be reviewed
We have some core members of the team who will routinely go back and edit older posts. This right now causes them to appear as something an admin then needs to review. This is just busy-work. A core member should be trusted enough so that even edits ...

It seems that via Keycloak, you can "add" SAML to Talkyard: (Talkyard probably will not support SAML natively the nearest many years, today is July 2020.) In Talkyard, configure OIDC login with Keycloak as the OIDC identity provider: https://www.keyc...
Is it possible to change the owner/moderator of an account which is serving comments for a blog? We realized that it would be better to have the moderation be done by another individual. Thanks!
Questions about this software
Hello. I found this app and it looks it could meet my needs. I have a news community, and I discovered dev.lemmy.ml, which is software inspired in the old reddit, however, thought promissing it is still lacking in many aspects. My other choice was di...

Help choosing a path for shibboleth integration

Feature request: Search API

Feature request: New topic type: Article
We've changed the design a bit on our forum and I think we'd like to consider using Talkyard for our documentation (in a way you could say our "How to" category is already documentation-by-support) Here's an example: https://forum.soundflow.org/-1842...
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! [Edit] R...
