Discourse - Topic Categories Now Showing?

Did something change in the forum software? There have always been topic/thread tags in different colors, but it seems like they are now showing on their own ‘line’ and taking up a bunch of space on the screen. Is it my imagination or am I in some kind of Vo2 Max induced fog?

It’s ugly, that’s for sure.


Agree, it’s a bit distracting. I feel like it’s the big red number that used to be telling us **YOU HAVE REFERRALS

Yeah, I’m not the biggest fan of this new look. Feels clumsy.


Dont like it either.

It’s fairly distracting when what should be the sub heading hogs the limelight in big bold colours :open_mouth:

Can you share a screenshot?
What interface & device?

I’m not sure I am getting the same experience.


Windows 10, Chrome. Also in Firefox.

iPhone Safari and Chrome look fine.

On Mobile/Android it hasn’t changed

Same as above on PC with Chrome and Firefox. Wasted space and not a fan of this arrangement.

I think I like the intent, but not the implementation. Might be better as a “dot” lead in front of or behind the text.

But underneath just results in wasting space.

We’ll get this fixed soon, I don’t know what happened for them to show.


Fixed! :tada:

Discourse updates the software pretty often, looks like the last update didn’t play nice with our styles. Our team just fixed it!


Much better :+1:
