I'm trying to apply a widget to forum_list_above_nodes in a Template HTML.
<xf:h1 hidden="true" />
<xf:widget key="custom_new_threads" position="forum_list_above_nodes"/>
Unfortunately if I try to save the template:
Line 3: Unknown position 'forum_list_above_nodes'. Supported...
Can't seen to enter a display order for the Public: Sidebar bottom widget. Won't allow me to enter a number and +/- doesn't do anything. Actually, seems like all of the positions on the right column have the same issue.
Is it possible to apply a style or something to make a thread sidebar widget always-visible?
As it is, on a long thread the sidebar is only visible when you scroll to the very top. When you click an unread post and are taken to the bottom of the thread, you won't see the sidebar widget unless...
With XF2 it's really simple to add a Page as the homepage and populate it with widgets to create a "portal" page.
As a few people have asked how to do it I thought I'd post this quick guide.

It would also allow us to create various custom...

This will allow us to place any block anywhere.
We could reorder page elements to our liking and easily create unique pages...
Please consider to add functionality for:
multiple widgets per row (side by side blocks)
tabbed widgets (multiple widgets in the same location by the use of tabs)
As bd widget framework has these function, a lot of xenforo sites already use this in production.
Simple, but I have a two-staged suggestion.
Stage 1: After not being able to arrange the display order of the "Staff" User Banner within the User Group Banners for a user, I would want to suggest that the Staff Banner does not behave different – but could also be able to set up like all other...
It would be very useful to have the new posts sidebar block refresh, so that users do not need to refresh the page to see what's new.
Not only is this useful, it also gives a interactive and modern feel on the main forum index.
bd Widget Framework is an excellent add on that makes changing the side blocks of your entire forum very simple. It's also very easy to work with which is why I've decided to make some widgets for it.
All the widgets can be seen on this site: Similar threads (when viewing a thread, if similar...
