    Idea: moving the People who you follow ... who are online ... to somewhere more prominent.


    or maybe something like this ... list the Staff in the Top Row to make their presence more obvious ?


    The idea is that I don't see the Forum Home very often (almost never ?) so ... it's hard to encourage member social interaction when they don't see their friends online.

    Are you asking how to achieve this for your own installation?

    This was more of an idea for Style makers.
    Just wasn't sure where it should go.
    If it was easy, I'd like 3.

    Q: Has anyone seen any Styles that put the "People you follow" in a more creative location than the default Forum Home location ?

    It's simplier to have this with everywhere sidebar.

    That would work.
    I don't use SideBar Everywhere.

    This reminds me of the friend's online sidebar in Facebook.

    #3 You may, pending how many you list per row clash with the inbox & alerts balloon indicator being hidden cropped behind the avatars, I experienced this issue when I moved the search directly above the navtabs so that it sits onto. You'll most probably have to add a margin-right to .visitorTabs but even then that may not be enough. I suppose if your extending the height of the header then you won't have too much of a problem pending you show x amount of people your following.

    Not something I would do personally as it has the potential to look very untidy when the sidebar block keeps it contained neatly. That and I feel there's other stuff that would better utilize that area.

    This would be a great use for the open space (for non-moderators) in userbar on the Flexile theme.

    #1 seems like a more cleaner style, but if you follow a lot of people it could get a little busy there. Unless of course there was a scroll (left to right) option. Nothing that you'd have to click, but more of a hand gesture thing

    Here's more room :)
    Good idea about the scroll if needed.

    Or how about if you enable sidebar globally ?
    Dont ask me how, but that might be another solution of your problem(concern)
