- Admin, SEO & Webmaster Community

I’ve been working on the What’s New page, adding new widgets from a couple of add ons.

As well as working on a site (which is still work in progress) found here which is using @kolakube ’s Xenforo to Wordpress add on. Still need to add majority of our articles though.

Feedback on the website is always welcome!
I have added a Community Advice & Snippets forum - The aim is to provide practical tips and advice that you can use to create an active and engaged community. With this I hope to bring you valuable information and advice how to manage your community, enhance your community management skills. These are small articles / snippets that don't really belong in our articles add on because they're too small. I want to separate them from our regular discussions that aren't always focused on bringing knowledge but rather chit-chat. Still, I encourage them to threat like discussions where you are of course allowed to disagree with my opinions or bring your own advice. So, if you have any feedback or ideas to improve this - let me know.

If you liked our Snippets then we'd love to hear your thoughts. Register today - if you haven't already - and reply with your thoughts about them. Every feedback and opinion is respected and appreciated!​

We've spiced things up with some layout changes that'll make navigating the Advertising Junction a breeze. We want you to feel right at home as you explore and interact with our vibrant community.

✨ Bye-Bye Posting Packages:​

We've decided to shake things up and bid farewell to our Posting Packages service. Why, you ask? We're all about member-to-member engagement and exchanges now, creating a buzzing hive of activity and awesome discussions.

The Packages Team has gone through a bit of a makeover and emerged as the Service Team. They're here to assist you, answer your burning questions, and ensure you have an amazing experience with our new services.

Welcome back to the Admin Junkies - where the fun never ends and connections are made to last. Let's rock this place and create forums that'll leave a lasting impression!
Thanks for your input, it’s appreciated. I have been struggling to put content on top without making it looking cluttered and bad. So that’s definitely something to work on.

I'd turn your register notice into a floating notice. I'd still reduce the waves in the header and also block-headers.

Ditch the sub-nav, you have new posts + search which are both in the nav.


I mean, as a guest, I'd rather see your nodes here than large graphics that are frankly, useless (they look nice but serve no real purpose).

🎉 Celebrating One Year of Admin Junkies 🎁

My dear dear beloved Admin Junkies Community,

It's hard to believe that a year has flown by since we started this incredible journey together at Admin Junkies, your trusted webmaster forum. I don't know where to start. One year ago, marked on September 22, I've began a journey not knowing it would succeed. Not knowing I would get to know many great friends, not knowing what the future would hold. Let alone, even know I would celebrate a one year anniversary now. I've had so much joy in "trying to be a leader" - I've learned so much from this community. I've got to know so many great people.

We've had our ups and downs, and I couldn't be more proud on what we have achieved together. We're one of the best communities I know, and I know that may sound a bit biased but still, you are all great people and I love having a reason to be here. Support, laughter, compassion, fun, sadness, we've all shared it with each other. So, thank you! Thank you for being here. I will continue to pour in my soul for a very long time to come.

Here's a throwback to the opening topic:

Without you, the members, nor my beloved staff members, none of this would be possible. Therefore, I present you:

NB: There's a few more events and giveaways coming up. Stay tuned! :)

Much love,

We're delighted to share some recent improvements on the Admin Junkies forum, and we believe these updates will enhance the user experience for both our existing community members and newcomers.

Introducing the New Sidebar:

The most noticeable change is the addition of a brand new sidebar when viewing threads. This sidebar is designed to improve navigation, making it easier for users to explore the forum, engage with content, and discover discussions of interest. It's a user-friendly addition that simplifies the browsing experience.


Trending Thread Widget:

One of the highlights of this new sidebar is the "Trending Thread" widget. This feature allows users to stay up-to-date with the most engaging and popular discussions happening on the forum. It's a great tool to quickly discover the hottest topics and join in on the conversations that matter to you.

Your Feedback is Valued:

At Admin Junkies, we highly value the feedback and ideas from our community. If you have suggestions or thoughts on what can be added to the sidebar to improve the experience, we welcome your input. Your opinions matter, and we're committed to making the forum even more tailored to your preferences.

New "Ignore More" Features:

In addition to the sidebar, we've introduced new features that give users more control over their forum experience. These features include:

  • "Show Ignored Content" Link: Easily reveal hidden content on the news feed and latest activity pages, allowing for a more customizable experience.
  • Choose What to Ignore: Users can now ignore or unignore threads or entire forums in the news feed, thread list, and forum list, tailoring their forum experience to their liking.
  • Account Area Insight: Users can see what they are ignoring within their account area, providing greater transparency and control.
1. Choose to ignore a specific forum:

2. Ignore preferences:

3. The forum is no longer listed:

We believe that these updates will enhance the Admin Junkies experience for all users, whether you're an existing community member or someone just discovering our forum. We're committed to ensuring that Admin Junkies remains a welcoming and user-friendly hub for all things admin-related.

Thank you for taking the time to explore these changes with us. We look forward to continuing to improve our platform and provide a space for engaging discussions and resourceful content. Join us at Admin Junkies and let your voice be heard in shaping our community!

Best regards,
Among other great updates lately, we've got a new theme. We've got some pretty cool stuff planned coming in the following weeks.

Admin Junkies Team

We're thrilled to unveil our new homepage, a dedicated learning hub just for you: (Or visit our navigation) This new extension of our community is not just a mere addition; it's a game-changer, a fresh start. It's where knowledge meets curiosity, and growth becomes part of our routine.

First of all, my eternal gratitude goes to kolakube. Without him, none of this was possible! He has poured in his soul and you can tell! Thank you, Alex, I'll be forever in your debt. 🙌

We've been working behind the scenes, weaving together articles, glossaries, and snippets to not just broaden your knowledge but to give you tangible insights you can apply. Whether you're starting out or you've been at this for years, there's always something here to take your skills up a notch.

As we continue to refine the design and functionality over the next months, we're also opening up the doors for you to contribute. If you've got wisdom to share, we're here to support you in getting your articles up on the Learn site. If you wish to know more, send us a PM. Meanwhile we'll continue adding content.

This also means that our add on "Article Management System" is retiring. Once everything has been moved over, the add on will be disabled.

This isn't just about adding content; it's about growing our forums, creating our community. With new tracking tools in place, we're keeping an eye on growth and engagement. And guess what? We're not just hoping to chart progress; we plan to share these insights with you in the coming months.

Let's make this a hub of knowledge. Together, we're not just building a forum; we're creating a legacy of webmasters who are as keen on learning as they are on leading. :cool:

As always, feedback is encouraged, we'd love to hear what you think!
