Q&A

Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Posts tagged feature-request

Requests for new features or changes to this site.
Tag Wiki

To track requests, you can filter on the status tags:

Here is a filter definition that shows all tagged feature requests:

Filter settings; set to include tags "feature-request", and exclude tags "status-completed, status-norepro, status-planned, status-bydesign, status-declined, status-deferred".

Any feature request that our team thinks we should do or are planning to do gets logged as an issue on our GitHub repository (with some delay to allow for discussion on Meta first) — this is what our devs look through for things needing to be done.

Q&A Filtering non SE questions?

Q&A Current text selection as input method for link prompt?

Q&A Self-answered Q&A - posting Q and A at the same time [duplicate]

I'm assuming that self-answered Q&A is fine and on-topic in most communities - if not, open for discussion below. "That other site" got a little check box which you can use upon posting a quest...

Q&A Comment editor does not automatically get focus

When I click "add a comment", the text area that I can type in appears, but the focus is not on it. I have to tab to or click on the area before I can start typing.

I just edited a post of mine. When I was done, the page refreshed, but the window was positioned at the very top of the page, rather than at the top of the item I had just edited. I had to manually...

Q&A Network-wide sign in created accounts for me on all sites even though I had no accounts there beforehand

A few day ago, @aCVn proposed that there should be a network-wide sign in to avoid signing in into each sub-site individually. I upvoted the proposal because I like the idea. As of yesterday (19.06...

Q&A Signing in should sign you in on all sites

Q&A Please allow specifying license for answers

While one can specify a license when making a question, when writing an answer there doesn't seem to be any place to specify and it just ends up saying "CC BY-SA 4.0" once posted. While asking a go...

Q&A Can we have second-factor sign-in authentication via e-mailed one-time codes?

I realize that this might be a bit of a niche use case, but I'm going to put it out here anyway. The availability of 2FA via an authenticator app is a great boost to account security. However, th...
