Better Positioning and Access to New Topics in Groups Section

Currently, the New Topic form is located at the bottom of the threaded discussion in the Group Section.

When you click the New Topic button, focus is passed to the Title box of the Post a new Topic form. But the bulk of the form is hidden off screen below the bottom of the visible page.

Ideally, either the anchor tag would be positioned at the bottom of the form so that when focus or control is passed to the form the entire form appears on screen.

Otherwise, a jQuery visibility slider could be used open to revel the form upon button click.

Our users are expressing quesiton and suggestion about it whenever they create new topics.

Thank you for considering this enhancement.

Agreed. This is not a great piece of UI.

I think we use a slider plugin elsewhere in bp-default. We might consider using it here too.

This is an old feature when BuddyPress bundled bbPress 1.x for its group forums component.

We're no longer supporting the legacy group forums component as of BP 1.7.

bbPress v2 (the plugin) now maintains its own BuddyPress integration. Users are urged to migrate to the bbPress plugin.
