Great component. Feature idea:
We only use it if there is a piece of breaking news to put something on top of everything else.
Now, the problem is, it does not collapse when there is nothing tagged “featured” and a big gap is then being displayed due to the min-heights set.
Thus, we always have to disable the component. The disadvantage: The user has to make a reload of the website before this comes effective. And I understand, to collapse it automatically e.g. with a class (in case there are no tagged topics) after the ajax would jitter the whole page.
But: Would it be possible, to have an “enabled” variable in the component that would collapse it and not execute the ajax (and the loading spinner) to fetch the tagged topics? Thus, a user does not have to shitf-reload the page in order to become effective.
