I was considering adding something to our forum so that I could stop the Latest topics on the left hand side of the screen showing when we are reading topics. The thought was it would make more space for the posts.

So my question is, do you guys usually rely on the latest topics list while you are in a topic to go to another topic? Or do you generally use it from the homepage?

Let me know please, as I don't want to change it if you find it really helpful to access it whilst in a topic.

Thanks Very Happy

Question About the Latest Topics Widget I_icon_minitimeSat 7 Nov 2020 - 4:03 #6

I use the latest topics on the left side exclusively. I’m on a tablet but viewing in web version. If I’m in mobile version, there is no left hand column. I’ve had a hard time navigating to find a list of “new posts” like on the old forum. Maybe I’m not looking in the right place. I don’t know where to find “view topics since last visit”, that might help me. 😁 Thanks, Downton for all your hard work!

The left column is a widget @Calliie Very Happy

It is basically a code that creates specific information to be added to the forum (and a table/box to display it in). All, or most forums have them. Many come as standard with the forum, such as the Latest Topics. Others are custom made.

The Portal is entirely made up of widgets Very Happy

@NonaBelle The latest topics widget was recently added to the Mobile version. It will appear at the top of the page above categories and directly below the welcome message (and the link buttons for Contact Admin, Google Play etc). I hope that helps Very Happy

And thank you Question About the Latest Topics Widget 3951035613

Ah, thank you Downton! I found it. The twitter feed widget goes so much longer than the others that I hadn’t scrolled down enough to find it before. Thanks! 
Thank you too, Medamana! I found the view posts link. Yea! Appreciate the pic. 
Now I can navigate around a bit better 🙂

I use the left hand column far more often than home menu or notifications, but if you need to lose it.....

Is there a show/hide option like you've done with "
who's online"?

Thanks for all of the replies Very Happy

@JayS, no worries we don't need to lose it. I just wanted to know if it was serving a purpose for you guys being there whilst reading the topics. I am actually kinda glad to hear it is being useful. I use it myself, but was more interested in if it was proving beneficial or a hinderance to you all. With the stuff I do on the forum I usually access the site on my laptop, so wasn't sure if it would be used the same by members from other devices Smile 

Thanks again to everyone who has replied. I am happy to leave it as it is going off the response to this topic Question About the Latest Topics Widget 1069687031

ETA: I did consider if I could do something similar to what I did with the whose online. But if it is getting a lot of use it will probably be handier just leaving it visible. Plus it would possibly still have to be moved to a different part of the page to make that work I love you

Aha @JayS I have managed to create a retractable sidebar. On the top left above the latest topics you will see two arrows pointing left. This retracts the latest topics widget. They will then display two arrows pointing right, clicking this will display the latest topics.

It is automatically set to open, but you can change it to retract. So basically each member can now choose how they would like the widget displayed Very Happy

Like the theme changer, for members signed in, it will save whatever setting you have it on. So maybe this will be handy for people depending on what device they use? Question About the Latest Topics Widget 3951035613

ETA: A new button clearly stating "Show/Hide Latest Topics" has been added instead of arrows.

Question About the Latest Topics Widget I_icon_minitimeSun 8 Nov 2020 - 19:48 #15

I thought I would share a tip with those who wish to hide the Latest Topics. I prefer them to be hidden when I am on my tablet. However it hides them on the Homepage too and I still want to use the Latest Topics widget Sad 

But what I do is use the link to the 'Portal' that is in the 'Handy Links' drop down menu under every posters profile to the left of each post. Latest topics is also displayed in the portal in the left hand side column. It is separate to the other Latest Topics (although it is the same Rolling Eyes tongue  ) therefore it is not effected by the setting to hide it everywhere else. So no scrolling necessary, and no need to switch between hiding and showing the Latest Topics widget, which defeats the object IMO Very Happy
