Thanks for the great component @awesomerobot, I used it on one of my sites today.
I was initially forced to fork it, though, as one feature which would be nice is optionally linking to the first post.
Functionally some sites, like the one I was using it on, might prefer to link to the OP every time instead of latest read post, for e.g. FAQs, Site Guidelines etc., because as it stands, if you’ve read the article, you are subsequently lead to the bottom of the target on future clicks, which is jarring and not helpful.
For single post Topics, one solution is to remove the Topic closure notifications, but if you want to get to the OP when there is more than one real Post, you are out of luck.
I may at some point PR a setting for this if it would be accepted, but for now the very simple changes are here in this template:
I’m having an issue where on mobile it keeps featuring a post that isn’t tagged, and it’s always the same untagged post. On desktop or anywhere not displaying the mobile version everything works great and exactly like it should. Any chance anyone knows why it may be doing that? Thanks for any help!
We are having the same issue on our forum! Only happening on mobile versions:
If you go to the forum directly, the bug will occur (non-tagged threads will appear there).
If you happen to go the front page from another forum page (e.g. you are in thread and click on the home icon), the featured threads will appear in the list.
Testing this today it doesn’t seem to consistently pick up the featured tags. It will randomly swap between showing the correct featured topics and other times it will just grab the most recent topics with activity Changing the tag names or toggling any of the theme component settings doesn’t seem to make a difference, it just randomly swaps between showing the topics with the specified featured tag or the latest topics with activity. Theme component and discourse at at latest versions.
@awesomerobot recently have an issue with no Featured showing at all. Running Latest Stable all elements are updated. To test the theme component directly. I ran a preview so no other theme/components would not be active.
Is there maybe changes for Test passed that requires stable to install with a fall back option maybe?
