Testing a new Forum Index Page, what do you think?

Recommended Posts

Cesar

Hey Keepers,

Made a change today to the landing page for the forum index, here is the short story... Noticed the latest activity page was very popular and our mobile app also uses a similar latest activity listing, so I updated the SKF page to show the latest activity over the traditional forum category listings... You can see the change here...

https://skfaquatics.com/forum

Depending on your feedback and posting increase/decrease, we will either keep it or return back to the old forum index. 

To dig a little deeper, the old page seemed a bit dated. With so many posts received on a daily basis here on SKF, it often felt like nothing was going on, when in fact, there are posts that go unseen and unanswered because they are buried and hard to find. Changing the front page to show the latest stream/activity of the forum enables us to quickly check what new posts and replies have been posted without having to dig around.

SKF is growing really fast, and I want to make sure we are providing the best experience for shrimp keepers possible while creating the greatest online shrimp keeping resource. In that spirit, we will continue to make a test new stuff, for now let's keep it simple and start with one page... Let me know what you think...

Thanks!

I was pulling my hair out wondering why it was doing that.

LOL... Hopefully, it works better than the old page, let me know what you think... 

I can spruce it up in time, figured I would keep it simple for now and test it out, get some feedback...

I enjoyed going to "unread content" so that it grouped all the posts together under one thread, rather than showing every single post that has been made.


A work around is just using the Shrimp Keepers Stream and changing the type of content it shows.

It's been about a month now with the new forum index page showing a stream rather than the traditional forum category layout...

So what do you think? Should we keep it or go back to the old style?

I have noticed an up trend in conversation and posting since moving to the new timeline version...

Looking to hear back from you, let me know your thoughts, love it? hate it? other?

Thanks!

I had my shortcut to go to where it now defaults automatically. It makes more sense for regular users to see what has happened since the last visit etc.

      Yep, I see it too... Will look into this... Recently upgraded to the latest forum software... Always bugs to fix afterward... Thanks @Grubs for bringing this to my attention.

      I'm getting an error loading Articles but only when signed in to the forum.  Tested with  latest Firefox Quantum 69.0  and Edge.  Articles load perfectly  if I sign out, but not when signed in.

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
