new quick preview at top of forum - NEW! RSS feed!

can we exclude Lounge and Helpdesk also? :smile:

why the lounge? because it is OT? then we should exclude the gathering as well? Helpdesk i don’t want to hide since now it is easy to spot when someone has a problem - so help will arrive sooner :content:

re:fontsize: I will tweak later it to see what will take up the least amount of space while still be readable

I don’t really like this new quick preview :shy:

I like it.

I like it too! :thumbs:

You could also put it in an iframe, that way you can auto-refresh it :wink:
(plus I could AdBlock it in Mozilla Firefox :razz:)

I don’t like it. It takes up too much space.

I liked how it was previous to this. It had 5 previews of both News and General sections instead of 3 originally, but in smaller fonts and not too obtrustive. I liked that format. :content:
I really want to see the “next 5” feature working! That’s going to be great. :smile:

yes, this new format came with the update of the mod (exclude certain forums as per request) - and i decided to give it a try, see how it looks etc

i can always put it back to the original format :smile:

the next feature - i’m wating for a reply of my help question to the maker of the mod.

else pass me the code and I’ll have a look…

I personally love it, it’d be fine if it was the same font size as it was before or whatever, but I like how its across the whole page and displays so much, ntm the next 5 :happy: :grin:

personally i prefer the older one. This one kinda just jumps out at you - i prefered it a little more subtle.

Yup. I think I agree with you Darkmatter…

I preferred the smaller one. It was just that little bit smaller, and neater, plus I felt like I could see the first few forums, and for some reason I liked that… I’m not sure if I need all that extra info, about each post - the title does the job for me.

On the other hand every other new feature that I’ve seen is just GREAT! And even this one, i can live with quite happily :smile:



I agree.

I like this new feature - makes it so much easier to see when someone has posted.

Actually that’s a point Sureal. it occurred to me just a moment ago, that maybe I do prefer it.

how confusing! :smile:


hehee…my first visit since the new layout has been implemented and i must say…awesome work!

it looks so much crisper and clearer than the last version…i particularly like the colour choices, i didn’t expect it to look so sweet Q!

mmm…i do prefer the previous ‘newest topics’ layout to this chunkier style, but if you find a way to hide it like DA mentioned, that would be cool.

i love the little starry sky blocks (whatever they are called) between each forum section in the main page. the icing on the cake.

ooops…just one idea.

i’ve seen a few forums (or blog type pages…hmm…hope it was forums) use a scrolling news ticker type feature for new posts. the subjects are clickable and pause when you mouse over them. i think i’ve spotted both a horizontal and a vertical scroll…i’ll have to find an example if i can to show you what i mean but maybe it will fit in with the forum style a lot more…nice and compact.
hopefully it works with all browsers.

I hate animated pages. They (well, the animations) distract me.

Not sure I like it. Might get used to it. But it does only show 5 topics at a time. While usually, for me, its often 60-70 new topics when I get on the forum. “View new posts(70)” works for me.
