the Forum Index Page

On the index also displays forums.


If you have a cover photo for Pre-Sales Questions you can add it.


It's css changes!

I'm not sure that the background images for Grid View would be very useful (especially in the examples above). But in any case currently Grid View is very primitive and uncomfortable. I would like this view mode to be something like this — https://forums.macrumors.com

This is the traditional list view with custom forum icons ... 

Not sure how that's related to grid view and my request for custom grid backgrounds.  Thank you @newbie LAC for the reminder to @onlyME though.

i dislike the way grid view works, truncates too much text -  i'd much rather have the Our Pick style cards

It shows all the text for me? 

What's the screenshot of grid view for your FNF file.  

Masonry style for a forum index is an interesting concept though.

Nothing wraps properly, and long forum names all get truncated..




Oh.  That's because your forum icons are big. Try to make them the same size as the IPS defaults, I think when I was making mine they were either 32x32 or 48x48.  

I see what you mean by long forum titles not wrapping.

I agree with newbie LAC: If onlyME already has the functionality of uploading forum-specific images, then the use in the grid-view is best added to this plugin instead of building something fron scratch. 

Agreed, but he said he's busy and can't take any/this custom work now.

The text can be hard to read though. I'd suggest maybe a 1px border around the Font to differentiate against some of the background image colours.

Thanks for the tip Joel, I love grid view in forums but don't use it because of the text being truncated!
