Forum Feed

There is now a forum feed widget under the current comments widget, both on the right side of the page. My hope is that this will show forum activity on the main page and make it easier to see when people have commented, thus facilitating conversation.

Let me know if the font size is too small.


  1. Yes, the font size is too small. For my bi-focaled eyes, at least.

  2. Also, I don't know if this is possible, but right now it's showing entire posts which takes up a lot of space, could it maybe just excerpt the beginning or something?

    And, regardless, thanks for all your work Ana.

  3. Changed to Font Size 12, and a 200 character limit. Let me know if that's better/worse. :)

  4. I find the right sidebar font for pretty much everything except the forum feed too small. It's readable but not comfortable for me, and I'm a decade to a decade and a half from needing bifocals. For reference, I'm on a laptop with a 13.3" screen and 1280x800 resolution.

  5. And I think the excerpts from the posts in the forum feed are too long. They make the page look crowded.

  6. Sorry to comment again, but could we have a link to the forum at the top of the sidebar? I didn't know it was there until the forum feed showed up.

    1. There is a link to the forum at the top of the page; the green bar under "The Slacktiverse" contains a link to the forums.

  7. Oh. Great! Sorry I didn't notice. I think the font size for the links in the green bar could stand to be a little bigger.
