Stewart told me I should file this as an official Feature Request, so here I am:
My users requested the Outline-Tree to be above the posts of the topic. It was that way in the forum we converted from.
After some futile attempts to get help concerning that problem, I finally figured out, how to do that on my own. Thereby I found out that it shouldn't be that much of a problem to include this as a feature into the skin by adding a template-bit that could look like this:
With this, one could simply choose where to display what.
I agree. As the whole purpose of Outline Mode is to see the threaded version of the posts, it just makes sense to have it at the top of the page, where it's simply easier to see and use.
One of the most annoying things about IPB is the lack of flexibility in the layout. Within a template bit things are fine, but really the template bits create restrictions on layouts. Also, some output is hardcoded and this needs to change.
I completely agree.
Much of this will be fixed with 3.0 (where foreach loops in the skin, and nested if/else statements will make it easier to put all html into one template block so you can more easily manipulate the layout).
This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies.
