Hello,

I have using cjforum now on my website www.cardmonsters.de for quite some time now. Overall I am very satisfied with the features and it is my fav. forum component.
Nertheless, there a a few letdowns, missing features & bugs that need to be fixed asap!

Here is a list of bugs i have issues with:
- incomplete translation: it is impossible to translate the timestamps into german. those strings seem to be hardcoded. this needs to be fixed so we can translate "6 minutes ago" or "3 days ago" into german as well.

- router problems: maybe for a correct routing it is necessary to publish the categories-module of cjforum. if not, the sef-urls are a mess.
example:

- SEF-URLS for the member-profiles need to be added. example:
https://www.cardmonsters.de/forum/mitglieder?view=profile&id=254

better:
https://www.cardmonsters.de/forum/mitglieder/toxiclotus-254

- duplicate content urls:
example:
https://www.cardmonsters.de/component/cjforum/category/9-card-monsters-deutsch?Itemid=101
https://www.cardmonsters.de/forum/9-card-monsters-deutsch

maybe some of these happens only if you dont publish the category module or publish it afterwards when the incorrect urls are indexed already. but if the module is important for the correct sef urls, this needs to be better discribed in the documentation. possible solution: create a shadow-menu for it, or publish it on a module pos where it is not visible in frontend to make correct SEF-URLS work.

- make replies counter also visible on forum home page!
currently only the number of topics is displayed, not the replies. this looks like a not very active forum - if you publish the no. of replies for every category too, the forum seems more active. just count togethere all replies in one category and subtract the topics:
example: 5 topics / 17 replies
screenshot (i mean this view):
cjforum topics no replies

- make forum/user-permissions more user-friendly after installation:
most of the joomla users assume that the forum is working with proper rights after installation. in cjforum you can configure every single permission for every user. this is good, but provide the basic permissions at the beginning after installation.
users should be able to see the forum, post replies and post their own topics.

- signature not visible when i create a new topic. for some weird reason my signature is only visible when i reply to a topic but not if i create a new topic? why is that? bug or feature?

- why does the first topic look different than the other replies? (smaller avatar, no signature, etc....) - feels unusual.

- improve the module for new topics/trending topics:
same problem as for the component - timestamps langue strings are not translateable currently. please make this possible.
please make it visible who has posted the last reply for a certain topic! currently it only shows that there is a new reply to a topic created by XXXXX. But not WHO has replied to that topic! - this is by far the most relevant information!

that`s it for now - plese fix these issues and cjforum will beocme the most popular forum component. the joomla community needs a PERFECT forum component. kunena is much to big and buggy - cjforum is perfectly right to take this place.
keep up the good work and bring on the next update asap! :-)

edit:
- 1 new bug: you see that uploaded images break the layout of the forum - you need to add a css-rule for that

greetings,
joe

    1. Date Translations: https://www.corejoomla.com/support/language-translations/cjlib-component.html

    2. These are already there. Create one menu item for 

    • Each top level category
    • User Profile View
    • Topics Listing
    • Users Listing
    • Categories

    See below the setup of this forum:

    CjForum Menu Items

    3. Duplicate Urls in modules: Creating menu items will solve this issue.

    4. Replies in Categories Listing: Will add it

    5. CjForum uses Joomla permission system. Unfortunately, it is very complex to modify the permissions programmatically. The only easy and safe way is to save the permissions from the component options.

    6. I am checking the issue, this looks to be a bug, the signature should display always. The avatar of topic block is currently displayed in header part but will move it to the content block with regular size.

    7. By default the callout with username first letter will be displayed on each topic which has some replies. You can see on this forum. I will add an option to show/hide full username in text format.

    8. By default CjForum will not modify any content, all formatting shall be done on your editor. However, it is little inconvenient to new users and end users. I am adding some custom modifications to apply 100% width to images, this shall be available with next release.

    hi and thx for your quick reaction/reply.

    ad 1)
    i ve installed the german language pack for cjlib. no change, on my site there are still the german stings shown concerning when a forum post has been made, replied, etc.
    some examples:
    - ...Letzte Antwort 23hours ago - should be: Letzte Antwort vor 23 Stunden
    - ...Dein letzter Besuch: Just now - should be: Dein letzter Besuch: gerade eben
     the same goes for the module that shows trending topics, recent topics:
    -  Thema erstellt von Varekai in Website Feedback 17 hours ago. 17 hours ago.- ????

    it`s a mixture of english and german currently. how do i fix this??

    - thx for adding replies counter to forum categories overview

    ad8)
    ok, do you know a way on how to restrict the editor options for the forum to certain formattings? in mobile view the editor options are immense and take a lot of space. or do you recommend uisng jce?

    greetings, joe

    1. Please make sure all language strings are translated in your language file. I can see the German language is translated only 89%

    https://www.corejoomla.com/support/language-translations/cjlib-component.html

    8. Joomla editor plugin has some options but not extensive. If you want to control individual buttons and layouts, I would suggest using JCE editor.

    9. Profile tabs: I could not log in with the details you shared earlier, can you send me front-end user details so that I can check?

    P.S. the tabs working fine when viewing other user profile pages.

    ad9.) i ve re-enabled your SA-account on my site - you should now be able to log in with the details i provided earlier.
    please also take a look at the problem that the user gets redirected to the recent topics page after editing his own post.....

     

    thx,

    joe
