Follow-ups PM as private mini-chat Rethinking the "board index" July 11, 2020, 08:37:49 am The board index has been there unchanged for eons.But... is it really still a nice solution nowadays?Last time we added te option to swap the BI with any other controller configured to act as main page, but IMO this is not nearly enough.In this morning without much sleep I found myself thinking about it.Apart from the obvious easy way of integrating Simple Portal directly into Elk, I was looking more into what should actually be the home page of the forum.BTW writing and formatting the text from a mobile is still a pain in the valley of the shining sun.Looking around at what any site that is not a forum does, you can see a clear trend, and one that should hardly be dismissed as "forums are something else", and I mean dashboards.The BI works somehow well for guests that need to be guided through the sections, though for a registered user, more than staring at the list of sections the forum is composed of, it would probably be more interesting to see other stuff: who answered my topics? Did anyone countered that argument we are having in that other topic? Did I receive any PM? Did anyone react to my stuff? Was I writing something I did not post yet? Is there anything that needs moderator/admin attention? Ect.The "busy" life of the user may be made a little simpler and more appealing by providing him/her what is actually important.Thoughts anyone?
