This is a theme component that will change the layout of the /latest and categories and latest topic homepage showing in the first column the author of the topic. It works both on desktop and mobile.

I recommend renaming this to Topic Author or Starter since creator may be confusing to some. Awesome theme, good work :+1:

Correct, I will rename it

It was exactly what I was looking for. But why to hide the other user’s images on desktop. Don’t you think there’s enough space to show the other images as well? Or if there’s an option to show those?

Thanks for working on this. Any chance you can also apply this to the /categories page, where the desktop category page style setting is “Categories and Latest Topics”?

This is now done, please update the theme component to see it in action.

I think that have more than 1 avatar (the author) in the first column can confuse users and dividing users into two columns, one for the author and one for the other users (maybe where it was originally) can be even more confusing.
