Different Search Categories - Messages, People, Tags (Tag Cloud)

martin 9 months ago in Chat 0

Currently the search on the top left gives you only the option to search for messages using a free input search field. However, it would be nice if it provided some sub-categories, like searching for messages or people. (The people search would be a handy complement to #[293], in which private discussions could be started with multiple people by choosing names from a list of people).

Additionally a search in the form of a tag cloud would also be useful as a way to see existing tags and how frequently they are used, allowing the user to click on a tag and see corresponding messages, as an alternative to searching by tags.


Channel Topic

Could this be integrated into ryver.

Each channel with it's own topic to guide users similar to irc/slack.

Better visual cues for the forum/team you are chatting in, or visual cues showing if a discussion is private

Martin Ceronio 11 months ago in Chat • updated by jeff 11 months ago 1

When you have a large list of discussions on the left, the one you are engaging with should be highlighted more clearly.

Also, it would be nice if there were a visual cue, such as a different background color, to indicate when you are in a private discussion. (Perhaps forum/team creators can even set the background to something unique?).

It would make it more obvious straightaway where you are chatting.


chat timezone adjustment

Add functionality for Ryver to recognize a time written in chat and adjust it for users in other timezones.


Allow users to change the font face

Joseph Banass 12 months ago in Chat 0

It would be nice if users can choose their own font face. I've noticed on some occasions that the default font can be "thin".


Rate a comment or message (like the Upvote/Downvote mechanic in posts)

Joseph Banass 12 months ago in Chat • updated 12 months ago 1

A great feature would be to let users rate comments or messages in a private team or open forum. This can be great, especially for Q&A so that the proper "answer" stands out more.

"No selections available" in chat

Austin Best 1 year ago in Chat • updated by jeff 12 months ago 6

When i try to send a message, it will not send. All it does it show "No selections available" above the message. Is there a reason for this? If so, how about putting that reason in the UI so i can understand why Ryver refuses to send my message.



if (strtolower($action) == 'mvspccheck')


Maybe you can tell me what is wrong? Is this another hidden MD issue? I really dislike the fact that this software implements "parts" of the MD language with no instructions on that what so ever. That makes for a very bad user experience.

Opening existing direct message selects all of the text

Josh 1 year ago in Chat • updated 1 year ago 2

Whenever I open an existing direct message in Ryver Windows app all of the text in the DM is selected. Preferably, this should instead open a direct message and direct the user's focus to the message entry field.


Typing box loses focus with new message

Austin Best 1 year ago in Chat • updated by Jeremiah 1 year ago 1

When i am in the middle of typing a new message, if someone sends me a message the cursor is removed and i am left typing a message that is not actually going into the input box. The software shouldn't take my focus away from typing just because a new message is received.
