    Two subtle usability refinements I think would go far in improving forum adoption – one I’ve posted about here is to filter forum references in the User’s profile by the profiled User
    https://horizonplatform.io/topic/user-profile-not-filtering-topic-and-replies/#post-7396

    The second refinement that occurred to me after creating the above post and not seeing that bubble-up anywhere is to include a “Latest Forum Reply” view in the front page widget.

    Since the first suggestion above seems like more of an oversight I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed that. Like the BCT forum where clicking into a User’s profile enables viewing that User’s postings I think having that capability here would greatly improve the experience of using the Horizon forum.

    This is a good starter Forum, light weight, easy to get into but in future if the forum grows large we will need a much more exciting, feature packed forum

    Sort of a catch-22 since without a reasonable level of well-baked functionality this forum will not grow. From my perspective being able to filter on any User’s postings like in BCT (which I have to believe was the intention here) would be a significant step towards increasing forum adoption.

    Again, as per my original post there appear to be a BUG with forum visibility in User’s Profiles. Frankly, if the community saw fit to raise funds for a bounty to fix the Forum I would contribute since i think the Horizon platform and it’s supporting community have great potential.
