I wouldn't say that I'm particularly unhappy with Flarum and I expect that by this time next year it will all seem fine as I'll have found ways to make it work.
I do like the overall clean appearance and I can live with Tags replacing boards.
I really like being able to hide certain Tags from 'All discussions', ones that I have no interest in, and be able to see what's happening in the areas I am interested in easily; rather like the 'New posts' or 'Watched forums' features that other software provides.
I also like being able to mark everything as read with a single click.
However, I would say that there are 'features', if that's the right word, that I'm starting to dislike intensely.
As it's early days I'm not going to list them all but first and foremost among those dislikes is scrolling.
Ok, I can see where they are coming from. If I return to a long thread I should see the first unread post and can scroll from there but what happens when I then find a post I want to reply to but also need to refer to the OP or worse, another post 'somewhere' in the thread? Off we go scrolling again.
While displaying complete threads and loading them on demand sounds cool, there's a lot to be said for pagination and pagination is something that Flarum can do although it's not an out of the box feature.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a choice?
Now some of you are thinking that even with pagination, there's still going to be a need to do a lot of scrolling but for example consider that you can always right click/long press on a page number and load that in a new tab in your browser. That way you can have plenty of content on tap with the simple click of a tab. In any case, I always found reading through a long thread page by page a more natural way of working.
So, who's with me?
Forget Brexit, vote for pagination!
