I found myself doing this often on XenForo: Go to the UDM (User Dropdown Menu), Click on Your Newsfeed, Open up a few of the news items inside new browser tabs, After finishing reading them I go back to the main forum screen and... Click on 'Watched Threads' to see if something new/interesting has been posted in any of my watched threads, Obviously before doing all this, the obvious in-your-face red alert-indicators are starring you in the eye, so first you click on that to get the dropdown overview of your alerts... And for every single one of them I open new browser tabs to view them and get involved in discussion if necessary... And so on, and so on... life on XenForo is good! : - ) I was thinking, wouldn't it be beneficial (on several levels) if these manual steps would be taken care of automagically by the software? Wouldn't it be very handy/convenient and good for content exposure and -thus- the user interactivity of XenForo powered websites if these items in my list above would be served to the enduser the moment they log into the forum? Without the need to click on any link or menu first. A Personalized Entrance Page so to speak. A Personalized Entrance Page The moment you logon to the site you will get an immediate overview consisting of blocks of mini-overviews concerning anything that would be of interest to you. The software already knows (through your settings/preferences) what you are interested in, so why not let the software serve that info to you (instead of the enduser having to get/looking for it themselves) in 1 comprehensive and clear automatically generated overview? Like: A mini overview of your New Alerts, A mini overview of your News Feed, A mini overview of your New Watched Threads, A mini overview of your New Conversations, A mini overview of Birthdays of Today and in the coming days, A mini overview of new Media posted (if XF ever get's User Albums) by the people you follow or any people (can be controlled by options ofcourse), A mini overview of updates on threads in which you liked the first posting, A mini overview of Events you are attending and also the Events your friends/people you follow are signed up for, ... and the list goes on and on and on. I believe such a personalized entrance page will be beneficial on several levels. [new] I added some afterthoughts here. Thoughts and -if I may be so bold- support please! (Originally proposed for vBulletin (to good reception), but -not surprisingly- nothing (apart from planning apparently) was done with it. Even if it was one of my most famous suggestions! ;-) So I would love to see this now in XenForo) Reminder: If you think this should be default functionality in XenForo, the please [like] this first posting! Thank you.
