Quick New Thread in Dashboard

  • I think it will attract more members to post a thread, if there is a Quick New Thread form in Dashboard, so members don't have to visit certain forum to post a thread.

    They just type in Dashboard, select the forum using <select> dropdown and then press SUBMIT.

    What I meant is like that one.

    I've struggled to beat facebook group this day, facebook group is really killing forum because of it's easyness to post.

    Forum today requering more steps to post a thread, go to spesific forum then click new thread.

    Why not giving them the facebook easyness?

    It is true what you said. Facebook group can get popular more easily than a forum. But more than easiness to post, it is easier to get members to a group due to in house promotion by Facebook. And also the ease to share, invite members.

  • Unfortunately, I see that too

    As others have said, the groups created are growing off the back of Facebook itself helping promote them. With billions on users on facebook it's no real wonder they are taking over from running a solo forum. You can't compete against that.

  • Unfortunately, I see that too..

    Fortunatley, i don't. I'ts good to have users that see that facebook is no forum.

  • But I give all credit to Facebook as a platform even though groups offer mediocre features.

    I think it's only a matter of time, until facebook group has features on par with forum software.

    They add new good features time to time.


    Back to topic, I hope it's not that hard for Woltlab team to implement the feature that let member to post a thread directly from Dashboard. Just my 2 cents
