We have an exciting update for our Community coming Soon™. As you may be aware, our platform is powered by Discourse (https://discourse.org/).
Recently, Discourse introduced a new design for their platform, which has been adopted by numerous communities. At the time, we decided to opt-out of this update. However, with the latest platform updates, our current design is now considered “Legacy” and will eventually be phased out for those who regularly update their platforms. Some changes have already been implemented on the mobile version, and more updates are on the way, particularly for those browsing the IFC on their computers.
It’s almost time for us to fully embrace this new design, and we wanted to give you a heads-up before making the switch.
Below, you’ll find a screenshot of Discourse’s own community, showcasing the new look. Feel free to visit their website and explore for yourself:
While we haven’t finalized an exact date for this transition, rest assured it will happen Soon™, as we’ve already experienced a few issues due to our reliance on the legacy design.
As for modifications, additions, or removals of current features, we do not have any immediate plans to add or remove anything. Some features may function slightly differently, but the core functionality will remain the same.
NOTE: There will most likely be a few quirks for us to work out once we push, so bear with us in the beginning :)
Sebastian & the rest of the Infinite Flight team & Moderators.
