Forum Feature: Last topic title

Unread post by Angelo » May 2nd, 2012, 8:52 am

Hey everyone,

I wanted to know for feedback purposes what do you think if we were to add a "Last topic title" feature that will basically show on the index page the last topic that was posted in each forum category.

THERE is nothing official of us adding a feature like this but we want to know what you would think of such feature if it were ever implemented.

Note: We had a feature like this before but it got abandoned along with our old style.

Leave us your thoughts!

Regards!

We may bring it back, but we need to see if its wanted. We don't want to go editing the forum code without making sure that at least most of you want a feature like this back. The less we edit The Dark Legion Website forum style the better. But we will edit if necessary and add stuff when necessary.

Please everyone, feedback is essential on this.

Thanks!

Was it easier to check what topics were worth reading back then with this around? Did it really make a difference? What is the difference seeing what was the last topic title posted in being visible and not being visible on index page?

This is a general question. We appreciate the feedback.

Thanks everyone in advance!

It showed the last topic that was posted in (the name of the topic) in the forum index page of the forum for each forum category.

There are several ways to go about this and let me explain it.

We can edit the core part of the style to incoporate this feature into the forum, yes. But we can also split the style into two different ones. One that has the feature enabled and one that doesn't.

So for example:

Style 1: The Dark Legion Basic
Information: This Style will cover the basic things that our current style has. This will ensure that we will always have a fresh version of the style around that isn't edited whatsoever and that everyone can choose from.

Style 2: The Dark Legion Epic
Information: This Style will include everything that our current one has BUT it will also have the Last topic title feature and of course our Clan Roster which has been abandoned due to it not being compatible(We're going to work hard on bringing it back because its really needed). We will also add any other feature we think relevant to the style.

We can test all this before it actually goes LIVE on our LIVE forum. We have a test server/page specifically tailored for testing purposes. :)

Keep proving your feedback. This is really useful and we appreciate it greatly. Let me know what you think of my idea.

Regards!
