New features - 21st May 2024

There are a few new features in the latest version of Discourse…


Redesigned bookmark menu

The new bookmark menu allows quick options for you to set reminders alongside custom options. You can also edit or delete these reminders. Available in topic footer buttons. Bookmarks are a great way to remind yourself about topics that you want to go back to look at. For example, sometimes I’ll read a message late at night and want to reply but also want to sleep! I set a bookmark on it to remind me the following day so that I won’t forget to reply.


Chat from user profile

You can now directly message users from their user profiles by clicking on chat. Some user may have disabled the chat option and this option won’t bypass that block if it’s in place.


Cleaner keyboard shortcuts

The keyboard shortcuts screen gets a refresh and now includes a separation between sections making them easier to scan and find the shortcut you want.


More options on modals for mobile

Modals now pop-up by sliding up and you can swipe down to close modals. There are now more action options on the left and right side of the titles. Modals are pop-up ‘windows’.
