Suggestion for forums


#1

for displaying the list of message in a form instead of:

KB - how to delete a page? - 3

I would suggest

KB - how to delete a page? - (2 replies)


#2

I thought about that, but seeing “replies” over and over gets annoying. However, in your installation you can customize that template and easily put the “replies” in.


#3

Another solution might possibly be to put replies on the first line in the forum topic list and then just have the number for the rest of them.


#4

I guess what I found confusing that the number also included the initial post. I would see

KB - how to delete a page? - 3

and assume there was 3 replies. But I am blonde. :slight_smile:


#5

I’ve seen this done both ways and opt’d for listing total count. You could either subtract one from each in the template or dye your hair brown :slight_smile:
