Hello,

This is a new mintJoomla forum based on Cobalt CCK. While you will use it you will find it awesome. It is pleasure to use.

We have now Markdown editor instead of HTML editor. This is very neat way to format your text. It is used on sites like Github or Stackoverflow. And our editor supports GFM.

Code Highlights

It supports code highlights. When yuo insert code, add language name.

```html
<html>
    <title>This is title</title>
</html>
```

And you will get something like this.

<html>
   <title>This is title</title>
</html>

Or this

body,
.class-name {
    border-width: 1px;
    margin: 0;
}

You can use css, html, xml, javascript, php and others.

Files upload

You can upload any picture file or zip archive. It will automaticaly get inserted into editor as markdown.

And you will get something like this

Editor Typo Test H1

Headline 2

Headline 3

Headline 4

Headline 5
Headline 6

This is bold text. This italic text. * This is an unordered list item 1 * This is an unordered list item 2 * This is an unordered list item 3

This is a quote.

This is inline code inside a text line.

html What is the meaning of this input dialog? Ah, this is a code block 

Image Upload not working? Got error alert:

There was an error attempting to upload the file. [ object XMLHttpRequestProgressEvent ]

  • this line begins with a "-" "minus" or "hyphen" and becomes a bullet ;-)

Conclusions

  • Typo is very big. Headers 1 & 2 too large?
  • Text Quotes are too large, IMHO. Distracting the eye. To dominant. Should be smaller than the regular text
  • Extra lines? How to do simple Paragraphs or margins. Paragraphs with RETURN are removed (especially on edit). If different Markup follows, the markup format seems to melt with each other e.g. quote followed by another text format. Or unordered list items. How to separate different markup correctly? See above! I edited this 10 times, and it is always messed up. List looses format and goes inline. Quotes spans following lines.
  • Editor color scheme is too dark (in relation to the site/page. Please, use a light scheme or even white? Dark works in edit mode and lightbox, but not on NEW entries.

Feature request / idea

Currently all Status & Types are displayed in the list. There is no filter, nor a sub-category. This was much easier and quicker on AngelDesk forum! Hard to browse the list and to focus on a specific "type" or hide unimportant status. I think we need:

  • advanced filters for status and/or type
  • sub-categories for status and/or type

Not sure which one is best for which status field. Maybe real sub-categories have an impact on frontend submission and UX.

PS: "type" means announcement; bug; idea; question

Hi Sergey,

congratulations with the new forum. I must admit, I was quite used to the old one. I thought it was one of a kind.

However, using Cobalt is IMHO the only way to go, so I am happy with the new one. Have you ever heared of the expression: "Eating your own dog food?" I hope this will improve Cobalt even more.

Using a professional template like Yoo Square is also a plus. I was a bit reluctant to use any other template than Protostar because Cobalt didn't play well with other templates.

Some additional feedback

  • The blue topic titles in the list view are very hard to read. Why not using the same dark color as in the Forums overview?
  • It's diffcult to distinguish posts from different users. Although there's a user avatar on the right, it all looks like one endless story to me. Maybe you could use a darker alternating background color or add divider lines.
  • I'm able to change the status of any topic. Bug?

Keep up the good work!

Best regards, Jeff
