- It's a distraction.
- Hard on the eyes.
- Moves too fast and takes too long to get to the end, before starting up again - with the most recent posts.
This post is to enquire amongst our members and readers as to the most comfortable usage of the list for your own particular purposes.
At present, the widget contains the last 12 posted topics. (Obviously, the more posts it contains, the longer you have to wait until it starts up again with the most recent - although of course the option is always there to hover over any particular post which will stop the scrolling momentarily - and you can also click in to any one of those listed posts and you will be taken straight into the post at its original placement in the forum.)
Without the scroll, the widget would have to be fixed at a certain height, which would mean the number of posts would have to be limited.
However, there is another way in which we can have as many back-posts as we want, within a fixed height box, with the addition of a scroll bar along the side which can be manually scrolled at your leisure, giving you instant access to as many back-posts as you wish:
- as per the example here which we have installed on the Forum Café: https://forumcafe.forumotion.co.uk/
This Poll is intended to garner the preferences of anyone who regularly uses the forum, whether registered members or readers. The Poll will remain for 10 days, after which time we will take into account the majority preference and amend the widget to suit.
