    Changes to forums home page layout.

    This is to give advance warning that we will be making some changes to the layout of the home page of the forums. Nothing will be lost, but we hope to make it easier to find specific sub-forums. We are planning to make the main changes on Monday and Tuesday, 8th and 9th October. When finished, and barring minor changes, the layout should look like this:



    Our main goals are to reduce the amount of space that the Forum Archive is taking up on the home page (but still make it accessible), and to separate technical support and discussion forums into their own sections as much as possible.

    Please note the following:

    • Prepare for inconsistencies for a while. The two servers, lingonberry and bilberry, can take a while to synchronise, so changes may appear on one server but not the other for some time. We will try to limit this as much as possible, but you may see elements of the old layout re-appear when refreshing the page.
    • Partly because of the above, we will probably do the changes in two or more bites over the two days.
    • The Loco Teams section needs to be the last item in the last section for technical reasons. It is an important part of the forums and deserves a place high on the home page, so a new link to it will be created in the “Ubuntu General Support” section.
    • Some minor changes or section name changes may appear before those two days.


    Thank you for your patience, and apologies for any inconvenience or confusion that this may cause.

    Oh, I reported the other post as I didn't see this one yet!

    At any rate, the picture is not showing up for me, and is coming up as a broken linked image. I'm not sure if it's a firewall issue here or not, however, the picture seems to be linked from ubuntuforums.org, and so I don't think it's a firewall issue. At any rate, just wanted to alert you to a potential problem.

    Thanks for the heads-up. That's odd since it's an image uploaded to the forum. I'll check with a non-privileged test account.

    you guys gave me a scare for a second

    When i saw the topic title i thought there'd be a massive overhaul.

    Then i realised it's just a few sub-forum titles.

    Re: Changes to forums home page layout.

    Hmm.................I don't seem to see a Conky sub-forum. Oh well, at least ya'll are aware it now. It has two huge threads in two separate sections. It would be nice if Conky had it's own sub-forum where both threads can be found with easy by new members.
    Plus: It would allow new members to become aware of it (I only found out about it from another site), especially if it had a short description in the title bar. Then, maybe it would grow and have quit a few threads on different types and styles of Conky.
    It would also bring in new members who got their Conky from another site, but couldn't find the support from that site to go along with it.

    I do like all the other ideas though.
    Just trying to be helpful.
