Several new layout and sorting options coming to the discussion page on Bonfire in the next release. Would love some feedback, such as:

  • would you prefer them separated in three menus as in the screenshots, or all in one menu?
  • any suggestions on clearer wording for some of the options? such as nested vs linear and the different chronological options...

@mayel Three seems fine, until you need the space for something else.

You should probably put sort by likes second, after chronological, since that's kind of the only one that makes sense. Likes usually actually are a signal that means that the user wants to promote the thing within the context of the discussion, the other interactions are not, and I wouldn't want to implicitly convey that these are standard ways to sort discussions, because then users will start treating replying as a promotion signal, and then replying really will become a promotion signal.

And boosting, you may start seeing people boosting things that aren't meaningful when taken out of context, to give it more prominence in-context.


@adobo there was an issue after the last deploy but that's now fixed, I suggest giving it another go to get a better idea of how it currently performs

It's fixed? The site took 37 seconds to load for me, loading this thread took 10 seconds.


I encountered this issue while using Bonfire:

Attempting to like campground.bonfire.cafe/post... causes "sorry the app tried to reference an invalid identifier or create a duplicate one". I also notice that mayel's root post seems to be in reply to itself or something like that

Do we know why the campground is so slow these days?
