Closing comments on a blog post
I'm using TY on my blog for comments. I wrote a post that attracted a lot of comments, but at this point, the discussion is kind of just noise with people repeating the same perspectives over and over. I closed the topic thinking that would prevent n...

Front page loads slowly when a lot of categories are present
Our forum front page takes several seconds to render, which is considered bad by modern standards (and also is just quite annoying). This seems to happen because the forum renders all sub categories - of which we have more than 500. It seems that thi...
Allow multiple replies to be selected as "good answers"
Often there is more than one solution for a problem. And sometimes the discussion splits into two different questions. For those cases, it would be nice to be able to select multiple replies as "good answers". Example: I found an issue (thread)

Threading for email notifications
I'd love it if TalkYard would make it possible for email clients to create email threads that matched the forum threads. So if I had email notifications enabled, and there were 5 posts in topic A, and 3 posts in topic B, and 6 posts in Topic C, I'd h...
Limit ability to tag/mention certain users

Consider making likes more visible
When I like something myself, it's very visible thanks to the red heart. But if somebody else likes my post, 99% of the time I don't realize it, since I don't get notified about it and it visually is pretty dimmed. Perhaps once the notification syste...
Translation to French
Hi, I've installed Talkyard on our servers (in a LXD container, with Caddy as Reverse) , and integrated to Comments on our brand new Hugo Blog. It's been rather smooth... How can we give back and translate to French ?

Add a border to images
Most screenshots have white background, like the forum, which makes it hard to see where a screenshot starts and ends. This can be confusing when screenshotting text. Could you add the "shadow class" to images by default? https://about.gitlab.com/han...
"Votes" column doesn't show on "All categories"
On my forum, all of the categories have votes enabled, but on "All categories", there's no votes column. I feel like people are unlikely to choose a specific category since I have so few, but that pretty much means that they'll never see the amount o...

How to enable OIDC login
Talkyard supports login with OpenID Connect (OIDC), including via Keycloak and Microsoft Azure AD. — Not yet well tested though, and the UI is a bit coarse; feedback is welcome. This ought to work with Microsoft AD FS 2016 and later, which support OI...

Filter posts by type
I would like to be able to filter posts by type: problem/question/discussion/idea. This way we would not need a separate category for each of those. Often users post in the wrong category anyway, and I think it is confusing to select the same thing t...
connect-posts for duplicates and and multi-language content
