(Suggestion) Visual Confirmation that I've bookmarked a thread, as well as another minor thing

forum-enhancement

#1

Seriously, why do I get no visual confirmation when I bookmark a thread? Just changing the bookmark flag from the normal color to red would be simple and easy enough. I know it’s possible, because other forums which use this layout do that.

Also, why do you have the flag and bookmark buttons behind the 3 little dot things? It’s an additional 2 buttons; it seems really pointless to hide it behind 1 button.

@Ryan or Krista (don’t know her username) can implement this.

Edit: The 3 little dots I’m referring to is the “show more” button (according to mouseover)

Seems pretty obvious to me, or am I reading this wrong?

There is no visual identification (aside from mouseover) that I have bookmarked your post. This isn’t intuitive. There should be some sort of change of color, or at least a pop-up saying that I’ve bookmarked the post, but there isn’t.

This leads the end user to question whether they had actually bookmarked the post or not.

Also, those 3 dots are useless. Like Why

I was not even aware you could bookmark by individual posts…

I am with you on the 3 dots.


#6

Never noticed the book marks problem because I never use the feature.

But the 3 dots to show more I am with you. It used to be that they were all laid out, an update changed it to the show more menu at some point.


#7

It’s worse on mobile. Because you cant mouse over. I never know if I bookmarked something, so I have to go and check out the boookmarks manager.


#8

The three dots is default functionality in Discourse.

I have changed the bookmarked icon to turn blue when you’ve bookmarked a thread.

Thank you!!! :heart:

THANK YOU!!!

I’ve been really wanting to bookmark things for so long, but because of it not being intuitive, I haven’t.

Any chance of you also removing the three dots easily? Or is that a more complex thing to change?
