Sounds like a good idea :thumb:

More messing about for you though Smeggy. Would it be difficult to do?

I'd have to research into cookie programming. Not something I'm au fait with really, although I've briefly come across it.

The hard bit isn't the programming though it's the ergonomics. i.e designing an interface that caters for as many diverse tastes as possible and also making it intuitive. Too many options can be too complex and put people off. The trick is to make the interface simple and have the more advance features in sub-layers, but intuitively and quickly available

Sounds like a bit of a headache for you.

What about narrowing the width the topic lists a bit. Putting politics list on the left hand side of the forums, general list on the right and then shifting some of the stuff presently on the left somewhere else?

You could leave the politics list about the same length as now, so the image galleries could stay. Maybe get rid of the 'who's online' bit (as we have that at the bottom) and shift the external links, politics, videos etc box somewhere else, to the top maybe??

Either that or just shift everything on the left downwards to make space for the politics list?

Not sure if it would look very pretty though. Just kicking a few ideas around.

I did think about having two columns side by side for the top topics lists. Wouldn't be hassle for peeps with 1600 wide monitors, but the forum column would look too squashed for most people.

There is a way to find out the browser size of the client ( user ), so you could tailor the view for different monitor sizes but it requires a lot of interactive code and being complex you've got the added higher probability of bugs etc.

Keep kicking ideas about :thumb:

My monitor (17", 1280 x 768) is under the TV and about 7 to 11 feet away depending on where I'm sat, so the screen is magnified a bit so I can read it. I can only see eight of the general topics. Though if I make it fullscreen I see 12, but that would be 16 if they didn't wrap around to use two lines for long titles.

So making the listings narrower might actually reduce the number seen if more wrapped round.

Would it be possible to cut the titles to the column width to get more in. Plus have two tabs at the top of the column, which could be swapped to display either general or politics ?

I usually use the 'View active topics' screen anyway, so don't bother me. :)

Just wondering how everyone is getting on with the new split top topics list, 'Top General Topics' at top and 'Top Politics Topics' further down, underneath. ?


Bump for those who haven't seen it :)

And fo course, the greatest new forum feature, hackenslash.

This looks like hubris, but we'll see.

Incidentally, the latex plugin for php will make life easier...
