Recent Entries Sidebar Gone

Posted by An/A Blade on Nov 29 2012 - 04:16 PM

I'm not entirely certain if this was done on purpose or not, however, after the upgrade earlier, the 'Recent Entries' sidebar on the blog homepage disappeared. It's rather noticeable, since the blogs stretch all the way across now. =P
 
However, I've noticed it's still present on the dashboard, although the 'keep page stickied' option on the selection bar to get to the dashboard has also disappeared, though that might be more worthy of it's own ticket, if it wasn't intended.

I don't see this as an issue. Never saw the point in that sidebar as the most recent entries are obviously the ones listed first. It looks better now, anyway.

it would also show whether or not one of the recent entries had been commented on since you last viewed it, which I (and I'm sure many others) found immensely useful and convenient.

Yeah, that was pretty much the main use of that bar for me. xD It wouldn't be so bad, if it weren't for the fact that you can't label a specific blog as having been read, so that new comments would be actually noticeable. =/ Speaking of which, I should open a ticket for that, to see if the old functionality of the gear button can be restored...

Yeah, this. 

I'm glad it's gone.
 
Now if IPB will get their act together and go back to listing the last comment separate from the last entry, like it was in the older forums, I will not be as annoyed at them.

I would actually rather see that than have the blog sidebar back. If it wasn't for the comments thing, then I'd be with you and Gata in being totally glad it's gone. But, well, unless you can tell which blogs are 'updated' with new comments, then it's not exactly handy.

This appears to be by design (there's no setting to enable/disable it, at least). I'll leave this open so we can get an idea as to whether it's something a lot of people want back.

I would much appreciate the sidebar back, if it becomes at all possible in the future.
