What are the advantages to be provided in any forum program

Post by abdu7maan » Sat Apr 27, 2019 9:08 am

Good evening...
What are the advantages that must be provided in any forum software so that it becomes desirable by the user and has a large spread.
About Ttesi Ana:
1-programming is strong and free of mistakes.
2. Ease of use.
3-compatible search engines
4-compatible with mobile browsing
5-Easy to use by forum members from editing personal files and writing replies and topics and adding media
6-Adding some social media features.
7. Provide additional features such as Magazine and Gallery
8. The system of member groups is strong and easy to grant or delete powers.

I wish to participate in the topic and not personalization the topic.

One for sure: the possibility of not using it if we don't like it. :ugeek:

Not to forget that it should be possible to proofread the text of my messages before they are made public, as phpBB already offers for free.
Please PM me only to request paid works. Thx.

Define user.

Are you referring to the end user? If so then, in my experience, 99% are not the least bit interested in all the "bells and whistles", they are content with what is there just as long as you are not continually changing things.

If, on the other hand you are referring to the "user" as the board owner/Admin then that is another matter. Most of the time they think they know what their end user wants without asking them only to find that most of the features that are added are not used.

According to my observation on the average user and what we mean by the members of the forum a large proportion of them interested in the aesthetic form of the forum and design and ease of writing topics and we mean the presence of WYSIWYG editor in addition to the area of the member file more interactive and interactive with other members

In the 20 years or so that I have been running bulletin boards I have never been asked for a WYSIWYG editor by any member of the board. Would I get some wanting one if I asked? Possibly. Do I think that the members would want one? Maybe and if one was available as an option then I would offer it.

As I said before - the site owner's perception of what is required and what actually is required can often be poles apart.

You've been told how you can add the features you wish to utilize in the software. I'm not sure what the purpose of this topic is except to complain that the software doesn't include everything you think should be included. phpBB has always allowed customization through styles and extensions.
