Forum layout changes
« on: April 02, 2021, 07:54:20 PM »
I've been making some changes to the forum, you probably all have noticed. I have just changed the Gallery main layout to remove all the right side bars and increase the recent item and comment items to 12 items each. Feedback on changes made, changes you would like to see to make the forum more usable would be great. If you don't like my changes let me know. I am trying to make it as user friendly as possible whilst increasing the level of interaction regarding images in the gallery.
CheersMB

The thing I liked about the right side bar is I can see what I haven't read and can click on the next item. Would be fine if side bar was smaller. I will get used to what ever works best. Thanks for all your work!

I agree, currently the recent posts right side bar is set for the Home and Forum tabs only. I increased the number of recent posts on it to 15, can go more to say 20. I think it is good turned off for the Gallery as it was over lapping when extra gallery images were turned on. I will turn it back on for the forum sub sections.
Another option could be moving recent posts/activities to the center and having lots of them. I use another forum that does this and really like it. I will look into possible options.
