Misago 0.36 is a maintenance release focused on fixing bugs and improving user experience in some areas.
Added last pages links to threads list
Threads that have multiple pages, will now display links to three last pages next to thread's title on threads lists.
Due to how Misago stores information about posts in moderation queues, those links may not be accurate for threads with many posts requiring moderator approval.
Fixed Google Search Console verification
URL generation that Google Search Console verification used was broken in past Misago release. This URL is now generated correctly.
Fixed some timestamps being displayed as "0 minutes" or "0 hours"
Redesigned thread paginator
Pagination on threads pages now uses new paginator that displays both current page and total number of pages. It's also possible to click on central button to get small dropdown enabling user to enter the page number they want to jump to.
"Go to top" link was moved into separate row and is now more obvious in it's function and easier to click on mobile devices.
Paginator is also only displayed when thread has multiple pages.
Threads list UX improvements
Threads list's information density was increased. This was achieved by making avatars smaller. Thread's starter avatar is now displayed as left-most column on larger screens. Read/unread status is now displayed through smaller icon, which is present on all display sizes.
Thread title link was unified with other forum software:
- Unread thread: thread title links to first unread post
- Read thread (or guest user): thread title links to thread start
To go to thread's end you can use newly introduced thread's last pages links, or last reply timestamp.
Last reply timestamp uses new
<Timestamp /> component introduced as part of effort to remove
Broken login link fixed
Welcome emails sent to new users by Misago included a link to forum's index page with extra
?modal=login part that should trigger login modal to open automatically. This was broken during new NavBar development but is now fixed.
Added retry to notifications tasks
Posting API isolates its logic in database transaction. This transaction sometimes doesn't end before tasks used to send notifications start, causing those tasks to error due to new reply or thread not being available to them yet.
This release adds 5 second retry for those tasks when those specific errors are encountered.
