Re: Is this the way Forums are supposed to work?
this is fine as it currently is, but probably a simple feature like the following would be nice:
currently, when the user is logged-in, then he can see the following buttons: “Newest Topics”, “Most Popular Topics”, “Unreplied Topics”, “My Topics”.
can you make an additional button which says “Post NEW Topic” ?
When clicking this button, then the user will be forwarded to a screen at which he is able to create a “NEW Topic” and he needs to select from a list of “Groups” (only listing Groups at which he is a member of) where he would like to have his post into ? But the user should be limited to be able to post his new message into ONE Group only.
If the user is a new user and is not yet a member of any Group, then he gets a list of all Groups and when selecting the Group ( at which he wants his message posted into), he will automatically become a member of that specific Group (considering itÂ´s a Public Group).
