Forums: Make topic/reply author name more visible

Description

After the upgrade to bbPress 2.x, we've noticed that some users are referring to other forum members by their role (e.g. Moderator or Keymaster) instead of the display name or username.

In the new forums theme, the role does seem more prominent, as it's now in a grey box. Previously, it was just a simple link, see the first screenshot.

Increasing font size for author name by 1px and making it bold would make it more visible, see the second screenshot.

I know this would be kind of messing with defaults, but I agree that the role is a bit prominent over everything else, what if we outright kill the box completely while we're at it, as to me it's still the primary focus even in screenshot 2?

Good point, meta-2038.2.patch removes the box: meta-2038.before-after.2.png.

  • #1950 Add support for custom titles on support forums
  • #1972 Custom titles should not replace a users forum role on user profiles

As we'll be adding back "custom titles" this should also be accommodated here in this ticket also.

I've added a comment about this to the mock ups post https://make.wordpress.org/meta/2016/08/19/support-forum-preliminary-mockups/

We now have:

  • Display Name
  • User Name
  • Custom Title
  • Role

I think custom title should be displayed separately on profile (as the #1972 title says), but in reply template it can still replace the role as it does now, otherwise there are just too much redundant details.

Sounds like a plan +1

In 4093:

Support Forum Theme: Make topic/reply author name more visible.

This also lowers the visibility of the role.

Fixes #2038.
Props SergeyBiryukov.
