- WoltLab Suite Forum
I am finding the mod tools on Woltlab both very basic and hard to use.
I will add various comments to this post over the coming weeks, but for now, these are the main issues for today:
There is no mod tools/thread tools button which is displayed on the forum index page, forum pages, or within threads. I am finding this very difficult to get to grips with.
When I want to move a post to another thread, there is no button I can click to do it. Terrible.
To move a post, I have to leave the thread I am in, go back to the forum index, find the thread I want to move the post to, go into the thread and use the blue box in the bottom right to move. What a drawn out, complicated mess that is. How can my staff members be expected to do this every time?
On my vbulletin 5 forum, whether in the forum index, threads or posts, there were buttons I could click which carried out various functions like moving and copying posts, and I could carry out these functions immediately. A pop up menu would appear which gave me various options like copying posts, moving threads, merging threads and posts etc.
Can this please, please be improved for Woltlab with some urgency?
Additionally, I am finding having a separate edit thread button confusing, as are my staff.
On my old vb5 forum, the ability to pin, announce, close a thread etc was on the same button as all the other mod tools I described above.
Having to click the edit thread button to edit thread titles is confusing when there is already a edit button within the post. Why can't that be used to edit thread titles?
Can the use of a separate thread edit button be rethought OR changed and enhanced to include all the mod functions I described above.
(Note: as per my other thread on things getting stuck and the bold button getting stuck, this has now happened here. I pressed F12, but no errors are showing.)
