I want to use the Modern Category + Group Boxes plug-in, but is there a way to rearrange the main page?
My issue is that all the categories appear in boxes on top, and the Latest section is below. While it’s really well designed, it might not be user-friendly for someone who is in the Community for a quick browse. Is there a way to place the category boxes on the left side of the home page (I know it’s possible to use the sidebar, but still) and then the Latest on the right, similar to the Discourse Clickable Topic plug-in?
not sure about this theme specifically, but i’m running a live custom theme that uses #main-outlet css to make the white background in a very similar way (with rounded corners too) and it seems to work as expected on mobiles. i’ve set it a dark color and changed other attributes like size and the rounding corners (border radius) and i haven’t found any issues yet with how it looks on mobile.
My screenshot is how it os supposed to display on mobile White bubble around the categories vs a white column pane.
As I reported here and was fixed.
It was partially broken before creating the white wrapped column.
I am sure Jordon might provide some css code possibly to restore the bug if you prefer the white column. Mobile now for me matches mobile.
**EDiT: Looking at Op post you might be right. But the fix imho looks better as it flows properly with background. Perhaps Jordon can add a toggle for desired effect.
I have to locate the fix so my modified Air Lite theme matches. By like rhe Topic excerpts js was removed as it was excerpting all topics instead of just pinned topics.
I added Topic excerpts theme component to put excerpts in categories I want to have it. Unfortunately though it did not restore the pinned topics excerpts but many users wanted a default listing style for more posts per screen.
It looks like most of the bugs were fixed with a Discourse Update that was released today.
I have update the original post to reflect the first 3 bugs which are not as a result of Air Theme.
The version which I am using now which fixed of the first 3 bugs, is:
Discourse: 3.1.0.beta3 (e014635a12)
Now that those bugs are fixed, all thats left is
Which is not a big deal at all. Although I still believe its a bug since Mobile View on Desktop and Mobile View on App/Browser (which should display the same) do not with the white #main-outlet style. I’m not sure which I prefer now. I’m happy with either outcome.
