Welcome to ElectriciansForums.net - The American Electrical Advice Forum
Head straight to the main forums to chat by click here:  American Electrical Advice Forum

I'm still working on making the User Interface helpful for newbies and regulars. Each will see different content. I'll customise this more so that trainees see threads from mentors, USA members see fellow USA members threads etc. I keep chipping away at this because its tedious coding work and easy to cock up if I'm not in the right frame of mind and rush it.

So I've done a bit of this with the sidebar blocks. If you visit the forum homepage here: ElectriciansForums.net - https://www.electriciansforums.net/forums/ - (on a desktop/laptop, or iPad in landscape view) you will see the sidebar to the side of the main area (this is below the main area on smaller screens).

There are now tabs to scroll across for those 'blocks'. So there's a "Electricians Work" section, with new listings, top listings, new jobs posted to the forum etc. Then there's a "Threads-related block" showing the new threads, new posts, new member threads, top posts (by views) and top threads (by likes) so you can get to the best and newest content quickly. And then there is a 'reported posts' and 'forum updates' one too.

There is also a block for the members online, forum stats, who's visited and all that kinda stuff. Can keep those together too then.

There will be additional blocks for people of certain member types added soon. I just need to do this on the other forums first and check response of search engines etc. Because although we see the blocks as tabbed, and only view one at a time, it's actually a massive list of all the threads in one big line, so I've just added links to 1000 threads in one go there by adding those. And we don't usually add that many links too suddenly, so Google might think we're up to something dodgy. So I'll monitor those before I add more.

Let's see if I can remember all the staff lol

I seem to miss one person off each time. Although it's a different one every time so I'm not picking on anybody as such lol :D (Sorry Lee! - I missed you off this time lol)
