I'd even like to move it to a tab on the main Nav bar.
But it suffers from being limited to forums. For example Jaxel's excellent wiki provides a lot of content to stimulate discussions on forums. But it can't be included in What's New not because of the mod itself but because of a limit set on the XF side in What's New code.
Please could we have an admin setting to include other areas of content in What's New.
I personally would like to include
- wiki content - text or gallery pages
- new member (we're a small board)
Do Pages get included?
I think others might like to include
- articles from a portal
- pics added to a shared gallery
- blogs either a main blog or selected ones.
It's CRUCIAL that we are able to TELL members about the hard work we put into providing that precious content: Content is Queen after all.
It's really up to the individual admin and their board to Enable/ Disable.
Clearly there is a balancing act - too much added in would make What's New cluttered overwhelming and discouraging. But if an admin uses a feature as a priority area for their community (as I do with the wiki and many do with a gallery or blog/s) then it needs to show up here as a necessity.
As with so many admin toggles to Enable, the default is Off.
So those who want pure forum content can stay that way and everyone is happy.
