i just looked a bit at the showcase – and as i liked what some people did there i have a suggestion for the settings in this forum.
It would be nice to be able to click on a user/profile and then see the topics/replies. As probably a lot of the things done on the showcase pages also has a topic in the forum this would make it possible to search for the way they did things by reading their posts.
Also – i don’t know if you created tags or categories – this is the first forum i ever saw with only the option to see topics ordered by last reply.
I guess most topics are general – but if you use categories – this would also be nice to browse. I don’t know if its common – but i try to search for existing topics before i open my own thread.
Maybe it is also possible to show “related forum posts” or similar under the documentation – if needed.
Lastly it currently only seems to be possible to contact via contact form, right? It would be nice to be able to send a personal mail via forum – if you need login data or a link to a website. This also could help with my first suggestion (as it would be possible to ask the other gp user how he did it). Then again i can understand that you might not want that – to avoid spam and people just mailing you instead to use the open forum where everyone can see the solutions.
