I am not really sure if we are going to be able to add blog posts and gallery thumnail images to the front page sidebar but it certainly would be nice.
See mockup screenshot.
I would love to see a blog hook for the sidebar.
Maybe with the ability to decide which blog posts you want showing up in the list?
For example having only blog posts for the company blog showing up or a group of staff blogs.
Based on feedback in the other thread i posted recently, it looks like this is going to have to come from the modding community though.
The sidebar uses the new hooks system, so you can theoretically put anything you like there with a little know-how. We'll probably provide a few basic examples with IPB, and let modders get creative with more interesting uses :)
I'd almost say it should be a core part of the software, built in. I REALLY like that look. +1
We have a board index hook for the blog featured entry - it isn't enabled here until some additional styling is done on it however. Same for Gallery random images or latest images (can't remember which). They're not in the sidebar, however, but you could do that if you wanted too.
Thanks for answering.
I would prefer it in the sidebar because above the forums is already the chat plugin installed at our board which takes quite some space.
