Show topics in forum by default

I know the new XO website is a work in progress, but I think it would be a good idea to reveal the topics by default when someone selects a forum from the forum homepage. At present, unless they click the (+) button, the forums appear to be empty.

Re: Show topics in forum by default

You're absolutely right, and Bleekk is working very hard to make it all very user friendly.

I hope, he won't kill me if I show you couple of screenshots of the Top View, and the Forum View.

FYI - the current theme is just a temporary one, and Bleekk is working on a different theme...

I hope, you'll like it, but of course, we'll be open to all improvement suggestions!

Well, congratulations on that!. Very nice work. Looks great on desktop and mobile phone and the forum post text is clear and easy to read. A real step forwards.

There is some button re-sizing on mouse rollovers (probably just needs a CSS tweak) but more significantly I cannot find the 'New Topic' button in the forum? Otherwise I would have posted a 'Congratulations on the new look!' post.

Thank you very much.

No. All I see in place of where you show a 'New Topic' button is a 'Register' button.

Tried in Firefox and IE and get the same result in several forums.

I am logged in.

Re: Show topics in forum by default

Can you check it again?
I hope it is fixed now.

No. Sorry Bleekk, I still just see a 'Register' button. Perhaps this is a NewBB permissions bug.

Can any other ordinary (non-admin) users see the 'New Topic' button and start a new topic?
