Online Status, Topic Stats, and Preview Post

Lone and I worked on enabling three new features tonight.

 

Online Status

We've added little indicators next to a users name that shows whether or not the user is online or not. You'll now see a green lightning bolt if someone is around, a grey icon if they're offline. (The default was a circle, we liked the lightning bolt because it reminded us of Warning)

Topic Stats

We found a plugin for one of the most requested things missing since the last upgrade, stats for posts per topic. When you're viewing a forum you can now click the 'Replies' count and it'll show you the top posters in that topic.

Preview Post

There's a new icon you'll see in the post toolbar that allows you to preview a post before you hit submit. It'll allow you to preview your post on Desktop, Tablet, or Phone sizes.  This works with any content around the forum that has the post editor. 

Here's the icon: nGnfYP3.png

 

and here's what a preview looks like. Click the X on the top right of the post editor to go back to 'Edit Mode'

Yay for being able to see the top posters in a topic, I missed it. Also love the lightning.

For topic stats, it looks like it only shows the top 10 or 12 (I didn't actually count).  Is there a way to show everyone that's posted in the thread?

It was set at 10. I've since increased it.

It's cool that it's more than just the top 10 now, but because the box that pops up is very small (only showing three results at once) and the list is so long when I try to scroll down it goes way too fast/far and I can't stop it where I want or read the list easily. Would there be a way to make the box bigger or the scrolling slower?
