As you all may have noticed the forum is looking a little different lately. A fair bit of effort has gone into adding new features, plugins and themes.
Just a bit of a breakdown of whats added
Obviously, the look. three new themes. Forum colours are all based on Adwaita and Adwaita-Dark the theme itself is Graceful. Aptly named in my opinion.
Table of Contents plugin. For those of you who like to post tutorials and how to’s there is now a handy function added where you can break down your post into sections. This will produce a table of contents to the right of the forum for easy access. Read more about it here and how to use this cool plugin.
User Cards. This plugin just gives a more in-depth break down on the forum users. This affects the Users category found under the hamburger icon top right
Likes Column, when viewing the Latest Topics page this adds how many likes a particular thread has received.
Social Share, this plugin adds the ability to share you AL forum things ate your favourite social site. If you need a particular site added let me know.
So far there is, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and an email to option This is found under the chain link icon
Automatic Night mode. Give yourself the ability to swap between light and dark themes at set times of the day. This option is found under the User preferences.
Custom Hamburger Links his gives the Admin the ability to add extra links to the Hamburger menu.
Work in progress as this isn’t functioning quite right for the AL forum yet.
- Featured Threads. This will give the Mods and Admins the ability to feature up to three threads at the top of the home page. Once I have this working I will implement this and the team will be able to add topics as they please.
Well, that’s about it for now. Enjoy and if you strike any issues, please let me know.
