Design Requests (Xenforo)

Like I said in the Chat, I will be working on some Customization for Xenforo. Many of the stuff I will be doing is stuff that I know has been popular on the Inn where we use Xenforo.

However if you have any requests for how the site looks please let me know. I will try my best ability to accommodate everyone's needs, wants and suggestions.

It should be noted that I do not do image editing, by Design I mean how content is delivered, presented in the forum and the features within Xenforo.

An example of this, is if you would like having post counts in the member user information on very post, or stick threads having red titles, etc.

I have done many elaborate to simplistic things with Xenforo, and as I said, I will try to undertake anything necessary.
 
It would be nice to implement a "Set text display to serif/sans-serif" options in the Settings.
 
Well as you already kinda suggested, the stickied threads need to stand out much more than the other threads (something like a coloured background will do the trick).

Also when searching for new threads, the forum the threads belong to should be much clearer/bolder/bigger. I tend to use this feature to get all the recent activity and scan through by forum rather than thread title. But with the forum title being small and gray with a white background, it makes it much harder to do. Does this make sense?
 
I would like post counts to be back on all posts, if possible.
 
I don't get what you mean.
He means that he wants to be able to see an amount of posts on a user.

I personally think it is better this way as its the way we do it on our site, allows for a much cleaner experience when viewing threads.
 
Click name, receive info.
I personally think that is the best way, it removes the whole e-peen mentality and if you really must know what a user's stats are just click on their username, cute little popup card will show up with all info that could be of use at a first glance.

For more information users should proceed to some one's full profile though.
 
Likes and Post Counts in a Member's posts will be considered by the Staff and Administrator.

As for the other suggestions, I will be getting on to them as soon as I have time available.

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
