Most all other social services with a feed will feature images much more prominently than the little preview we get on Wix. Is there work being done to give an option to customize this widget? Would much rather see something like this (quick mock) with three items across rather than 6. Allows for a larger featured image and an expansion of the full width of the box for headline so they aren't all cutoff.
Is there a way to make the "Recent Forum Activity" widget much more image forward? content media

What is the reasoning behind the selection of the lead image in a forum post with multiple photos or videos? How can users change which image/video is being displayed in the forum feed?

Hello, we are getting requests for emojis in blog/forum post responses. Similar to NextDoor and Facebook, have you considered allowing users to have a THANK button with slightly expanded options to select to have a more free expression in a click? I'm not personally a fan of those platforms, but our users are used to this approach there and it would be nice to accommodate them here for a seamless transition in user experience.

We use the blog as a news feed on our site. Our users have conversations responding to that news and it would be great if they could respond to comments directly inline on blog as they can on forum? Also not sure why users can't hyperlink text in response in news articles either?

For example, my site discusses current events. One feature we offer is an ARCHIVING of local news posts which we want post to a specific category. Our forum page though sorts by all categories and so when we post something that is a relatively meaningless update (but still important as an archived article) it floats to the top of the list and can supplant otherwise popular topics at the top. Is there a way to post a forum post as an admin, but essentially have it stay at the bottom of the list - until people start to comment inside the post if they do. Problem is, most of these don't even inspire conversation so it is just a distraction that they flow to the top of recent activity feed. Could you maybe allow toggle of what categories feed into forum? So I could still maintain a category with archived stories for reference but they don't come to the top of recent activity feed? Feels useful to be able to separate certain utility categories like this that won't inspire conversations.

Many forums do this as standard. Say you have a 500 word forum post composed and as you scroll to publish you accidentally hit a link to a "related post" - you're then taken from the page and your text is lost completely. Other sites would pop up a dialogue with something like "Your changes will not be saved, are you sure you want to leave this page?" to preserve the text. This is a critical fix as I see it and should be fast tracked. This frustration is an easy way to lose users.

Hello Wix devs and @Chen Rosenthal Some chat services will allow a backend toggle to decide what happens when a user presses the "Enter" button during a chat message composition. Obviously many are used to the muscle memory of pressing enter to proceed to a new line below current text. What I've seen done with the toggle is the ability to submit a chat response by pressing enter OR to only submitting a finished message by clicking the send icon, usually to the right of a chat composition window. A user contacted me the other day to mention that they accidentally submitted half of a message before they could finish and review because of the current approach. I hope you'll consider the change and thank you for keeping the conversation going with users.

Change does update in user profile, but does not seem to be updating in existing forum posts or through the recent posts widget.

When clicking into an input box to type on mobile, the screen reorients and scrolls to the bottom of the available area. The issue my users are experiencing is that when there is a chat bar enabled and attached to the bottom of the screen, the text input reorients behind that chat bar. It's especially frustrating because as you scroll up and click to type again, it repeats the action. A very difficult user experience right now.

The sorting toggle in the settings of this widget keeps resetting to posted date after I deliberately set it to recent activity. Is this a known issue that's being addressed? Anyone else seeing it?

A member of our community noticed that when initiating a new chat through member chat, users are given access to an entire list of other members registered on the website. This might work in an ideal imagined scenario, but in practice in many scenarios, it can be seen as a violation of privacy and a risk to using a website. I do see the value in certain communities, but at the least, this should be a feature you can toggle as a designer. Maybe users are only able to chat through a button on a member's profile or if they directly type in their email. Exposing that information is a risk on my site and it's forced me to temporarily disable the feature. I'm getting messages from users that miss the usability of the feature in the meantime. Is this being addressed at all?

I have other confirmation that users are visiting a post but I'm not seeing numbers climb in response for public display? Are they only updated once a day or on some interval perhaps?

It's common practice for a long post to be shortened with a "read more" expanding option available to be considerate of our scrollers. It's fairly urgent need as it allows users to dominate a reply discussion and damage the flow of a conversation irreparably

When separated, you might have 2 comments and 40 replies or vice versa. The stats then don't necessarily represent the overall amount of engagement on that topic. I feel like other forums combine this count. Has that been discussed?
While the current way is technically correct, I'd like to see "comments" and "replies" combined into a single stat for external display. content media

I'd like to see views and engagement in one place for ALL posts. Ideally sorted by top views or top comments

Is a fix in the works? It's a very difficult user experience.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Headed nav appears on all other pages except for the forum.

It would be nice if we could toggle a red outline or some type of aesthetic highlight for a pinned post.

I get no error message or any notification. It will just not react. I've tried different devices, different accounts but when I attempt to post it will not publish? I've tried copying all content and pasting as plain text to remove formatting, I've tried to remove links and photos. Nothing works. Has anyone seen this issues? Is there a solution?
