THE FORUM DISPLAY
FotoFora allows you to customize the FotoFora board index page to your interests and convenience. It helps to minimize areas of the forum one does not have a regular interest in—while accentuating those areas that are. One is always apprised of new posts in those collapsed categories by the |Latest Posts| sidebar.
Our forum boards are reasonably granular and diverse. To avoid the dreaded "doom scrolling" that occurs in many forums, all forum categories are initially displayed as collapsed. One can expand or collapse them again as they see fit.
In the top-right corner of each forum category, there is a red stepped arrow. By clicking on the arrow, you can expand that category completely. By setting a cookie when you do this, FotoFora will remember your choice and display it each time you visit. This will also persist even if you change themes.
Collapsing the category by switching the arrow back up will reset the cookie—and again the category will be shown in the same state from visit to visit. This behavior applies to many other FotoFora features as well.
In the graphic below, the arrows are shown in their default state. The red arrow shows the result of toggling the | Groups & Contests | category.
Grid or Flat Display
As discussed in the Customize FAQ, FotoFora can be displayed in a grid-block or linear-topic fashion. Grid display is the community default. Using your Customizer Panel, toggle the Grid View to Table. The forums will now display as:
FotoFora Activity Center
The FotoFora Activity Center displays various metrics and information about community activity. It can be collapsed to maximize screen real estate.
