Quicklinks changes

  • Quicklinks are hidden by default. Click the "Quicklinks" link up top to show them.

  • Quicklinks show up wherever you are on the page, not up at the top

    Favorite Forums feature



    All forum indexes will have a little heart icon link. Click it and it gets added to your "favorites". Click it when it's blue/yellow and it'll get removed from your favorites.



    Click the "Favorites" link and all your favorites will appear for easy navigation.

    I would like to eventually have some kind of basic navigation up at the top of the site, but idk what just yet.

    Also renamed "quicklinks" to "forums" to save space.

    Ctrl+Shift+R should fix all problems.

    OK, it works! But it stays locked at the top of the screen... Is there a way to collapse tables down?

    Not sure what you mean? re-clarify?

    When I try to access a forum in my "favorites" list it takes me to my site feed.

    Doesn't appear to work on mobile.

    Like, if the entire list of forums could stay at the top of the page (so you can scroll down), but hitting the forum button collapses it so it takes no space. That way when you scroll down the page the forums are always at the top, but you can choose to eliminate them if you don't want them. In an easy example, the same way TV Tropes hides and expands examples in folders.

    Hmm yeah I could probably adjust it in some way, also @chiefsonny: your request too.

    My biggest issue with the way it was before is that it's potentially overwhelming for new users; some kind of regular navigation should fix that.

    Yea if you had it like the alerts and other menus where it just scrolls with your page that'd be cool. That way I don't have to scroll back to the top of the page for it... (Even though that's what we had to do, but if you're gonna do this you might as well go the whole way).

    Nvm I just discovered it does this now :)

    I think I'll probably make that an option, people have different preferences with it.

    Another update here:

  • No matter what your settings are, the homepage shows the quicklinks at the top.
