    Hi all,

    As you know, I haven't been able to rewrite the Latest Threads addon that we'd been using yet, so I grabbed something else that might help tide you over.


    I know it's not the same, it's not perfect, blah blah blah. But hey, it's better than nothin, amirite?

    And for those of you that aren't a fan of the sidebar, if you click that lil arrow it'll make it hide away.

    Nice. Is there anyway on the backend to filter posts from certain forums from appearing there? Thinking of the futureDome and Off Topic.

    You're looking for a filter to block all other forums than the two mentioned rite?

    Search filters is a large project, so no. As is, you will only see the dome posts in the sidebar IF you are a member of the usergroup to participate in the dome. So, basically you opt in.

    Actually, was hoping for the reverse - have thunderdome and off topic NOT show up.

    Understood, no worries.

    Just made some slight UI enhancements to the Newest Posts sidebar... it now utilizes jquery (which we were using elsewhere on the site anyway..) to show a trimmed version of the top few Newest Posts with a "See more posts" link at the bottom.

    If you click that link, or just click the title ("Latest Posts") of the sidebar, it'll expand to show you the rest of the list without cluttering the front too bad. Lemme know how it goes.

    Threads like this make me wish the hookers and cocaine would fit in your PO Box.

    Nope, just an observation; sidebar, no sidebar, it's all good. While you're here though, how about some colored text for text links in the Dome? I have to mouse over to see links now and I am terribly afraid I'll miss something important. Also, thank you.

    It comes and goes with the mods on/offline.
  23. Fuckeye Member

    ...Yes, that's why I told him to go away so I could get the screenshot he wanted.

    Do try to keep up.
