Upcoming upgrades

3 years ago | Chris Poirier (Moderator)

Well, at this point, it's clear I'm not getting to a wholesale rewrite of WFG any time soon. Or maybe ever. So, instead, I'll spend some time doing WordPress upgrades over the coming few weeks. Looks like there are some plugins for bbpress that provide private messaging, for instance. I've got some tight deadlines at work, right now, so I can't promise dates, but I'll do my level best to get to them by the end of the year, and hopefully by the end of the month.

If you guys have a short list of changes you'd like to see, respond here with your suggestions. Again, no promises, but I'll try to do at least a few of them.

    That's cool. I appreciate all your hard work, Chris.

    Suggestions, huh? Can I a get new "Submit" button that provides me with companionship and a sense of purpose in life? Thanks.

    I'd prefer a solution that gives you as much extra work as possible, though.

    Great work, Chris! I'm fine with the site just the way it is, but look forward to seeing what you're going to do with it.

    Cool stuff, Chris. A PM system would be amazing.

    The #1 thing I'm wondering about is the editor system, though. I imagine it'd take a lot of work to overhaul it, so I understand if you'd rather not commit that sort of time to the project. But if we're not going to see an overhaul of the editor system, can we just get more editors? Addressing that problem would make an already-great site even greater, imo. As lovely as the current editors are, there just aren't enough of them to effectively cover the directory.

    Dude, it's fine. I honestly am not sure I'm entitled to complain, seeing as how I haven't even donated a single cent to the site's Patreon. The fact that this site is up for free is amazing enough. While there is room for improvement, I honestly think you're doing a good job. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

    I also would very much like a PM feature!

    Oh, and it would be neat to integrate an image directly into a forum post. For instance, when asking for cover feedback.

    Did a test install of the current version of bbpress tonight. It's not going to work out in the short term—it works quite a bit differently than the current version and will need a completely new theme to integrate properly.
