Forum Post Assistant

Post by jonBuckner1 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:50 pm

Hi

Just throwing it out there...
The Forum Post Assistant is a great tool.
Really smart and useful!

However it has a really really chaotic UI and is a bit of a poor UX.

The “generate forum post button” is not necessarily that obvious and I think the layout could be way simpler and appealing and therefore less intimidating and overwhelming...

When a user has an issue it can be quite stressful so the forum post assistant can be another later of unnecessary complexity that need not be there.

I see at as:
1 Upload file.
2 Go to file in browser
3 Click the huge and obvious button

Currently number 3 is not so clear and takes a bit of hunting....


Maybe I will have a go at redoing the output but until then....

Have good day :)

Yeah. I agree. The "Generate Forum Post" button isn't all that obvious (and sometimes I forget how to get there myself). Other people who are members of the FPA development team may want to comment.

Have you looked at the new online interactive guide at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/ ???

Yes, the UI is very confusing. Buttons are so big they look like borders.
If only we could get the FPA 2.0 project back on track.
