(Suggestion) Recent posting sidebaer

#1
Hello. All


.. I was wondering how others would feel or like the idea of having a recent postings side bar created  for the site's homepage..

Just felt it might be a nice way to qucikly check the site's most recent posting activity on a daily basis ..

so give us your input !

Brian

don't you use the new posts option under the community tab in the top right corner?

honestly it's easier to navigate the new postings the way it's already been setup, a nice list showing who posted and when without the extra clutter.

as nice as the simmania setup is, makestation's got a great system going on here.

We actually used to have a sidebar here before we redesigned the site a couple years back. The only real reason that we dropped it was because of compatibility issues with our upgraded software. The code for it is relatively simple for the most part, and we could get it working without much effort, but it was fairly low on the priority list at the time.

I think it's a great suggestion personally. In order to make it look good we'd have to make a few theme tweaks so that it wouldn't look cluttered or scrunched, but I'm planning a few updates and a small refresh anyway. I wish i still had the screenshot of the old design from a couple years back, but it looked great before.

I'll see what I can do for it. I think it will be nice because it will be easier to identify the latest posts and good content posted in the community, and we will need it once we add status updates too. This time around if it makes it into the design, there will be a way to hide it for users who don't like it or for those with smaller monitors (such as myself). The old setup didn't have such an option.

This is what I use. It's simple and I love it, but others may not find it so easily. 

I'm up for anything if it looks nice.
