The Wix Forum is slowly starting to piece together, with updates rolling in a couple of times per month. Now that we have some more advanced functionalities and options, such as sub-categories, it's time to look at the performance and functionality of the forum. Let's start off with the dreadful loading time. It takes up to 10 seconds for some forums to load up (which is insanely slow!) Imagine being a first-time user, and you navigate to the site's forum. If it takes up to 10 whole seconds to load, chances are, you're going to get annoyed and leave the site. Next, let's talk about posts. If you want to read a post, you have to click on it first. Once clicked, the post is enlarged for you to read and comment on. Unfortunately, once you decide to leave the post and continue browsing, you are redirected to the top of the page, where you have to scroll down the list to get back to where you were. This is super frustrating and time-consuming, as the user then has to scroll all the way down to resume his/her reading. Lastly, clicking to enlarge images is a must-have. It would be great for users to be able to click on an image to get a better look at it. These are just some ideas and suggestions to make the forum a faster and smoother experience. Feel free to comment your own functionality/performance ideas below! Hopefully Wix will incorporate these suggestions in the next update!
