Minor Forum Reorganisation

31 Aug 2017 11:35 #35342 by Algernon
Doing a bit of reorganisation with the Forum structure, guys, bear with me - nothing is disappearing, just being grouped a bit better as we're adding a subforum or two... it might just look unfamilliar or strange for a short time while I'm working.

OK, mostly done. The old "COM1 Forum" group header dates back to the very first days of the FGUK forum, and never made much sense then - it makes virtually none now, so I've rearranged the top-level categories a little in order to make things a bit less random. While we're at it, is there any interest in "boiling down" the visible categories in the Development top-level subforum in the same way we do with our downloads? I.E. military jet, military piston, etc.? This would only affect the "front page" view of the forum, and would make that view rather shorter and a bit less cluttered...

Roger. That will be a rather long manual process, perfect to occupy some time on my nightshift tonight.

Am about to start on this. It's 0230 GMT / 0330 BST - for an hour or so, the Development Hangar forum may be all over the shop, and will hopefully be back in action by 6am UK time. Thanks for your patience :)

Having now done the above, the forum front page looks a bit strange. This is because we let Joomla/Kunena work out the order of things, and with the new categorisation, it seems a bit random. I'll be working on this throughout the morning, and maybe a bit of tomorrow as well. If you spot any potential issues, please do point them out, this is an experimental process and we like gradual change here at FGUK ;)

Well, it turns out we have even less control over the order in which sections appear than I originally thought, but I am still giving it some thought. In the meantime, I think the changes are an improvement. Did anybody notice any issues yet?
