We have now added some amazing new additions to our existing features within the Community Forum.
Read on to find out more…
It is my pleasure to announce the addition of reactions for posts! You just place your mouse to hover over the ‘heart’ (or hold down if you’re on your phone), and you’ll see this:
We will add more reactions as the community grows.
The idea for this allows everyone to see the accepted solution within the first post, to save having to scroll all the way through a topic for it.
When someone creates a topic in #help, #help:bugs or #site-feedback, a ticket will be created in our Helpdesk so we can ensure that an answer is given - either by someone on the forum, or through a staff member in reply to the ticket.
Users can now vote for their favourite ideas from other members of the community.
It is displayed by the title of the topic you are reading. This feature only works within #feature-request. As long as you have a trust level of 1 and above, you have 10 votes which you can use at any one time across different ideas.
This allows us - the staff - to see what features are wanted sooner by users.
We have allowed the use of BB Code - a widely used code on forums - to be used by everyone. This works alongside our current markdown type of editing.

(There are other codes available like size, colour etc, you can do a simple Google search to find these!)
We have also added a couple of things for staff to use in their routine.
