Sidebar for use in Custom Layouts Plugin
We would like the Topic List Previews and Custom Layouts Plugins to work together so that we could add a sidebar to specific routes which includes the latest topics in a specific category or set of categories.
If this already is possible, can you please point me in the right direction? I wasn’t able to find anything searching thepavilion.io and meta.discourse.
We used to host our forum on vBulletin, and had a custom portal which included 3 columns – announcements in the center, with a column of new photos on the left, and latest columns on the right.
99% of the time the announcements column was empty, so we’d like to recreate this using Discourse and the Topic List Previews. We are already using TLP to recreate the photo gallery we had in vBulletin ( CD-Media: Photos - Chief Delphi ) but haven’t recreated the portal listing of the latest images.
In addition to photos we also have a White Papers section, which is why I specified potentially adding multiple categories into the sidebar.
Here is a wayback machine screenshot of what it looked like on vBulletin:
