News new design.

@MattI feel like "Article image Link" should be optional criteria. If made mandatory, then there may be duplicate topics due to delay in posting with alternate images.

Also, this move might be seen to increase the SEO ratings in search using nsaners.
As we see, nsaners used to be competitive in posting news/updates/releases. Hence, this would be a slow-goner.


Suggestion:
I'd suggest rather create a search within the field to look for images as we do for emoticons/emojis. Or make tags mandatory and let the AI to get the related image to fill in.

Also a suggestion: the news topics should show up in recent topics (otherwise it takes away the importance of some "breaking" news.)  Thanks.

Creating new topic in any news section temporarily unavailable. Please fix ASAP. Or open up General News and then the topics could be migrated. Why delay content posting?

You are missing the main point of it which it's for related work on the same project, and it will be released soon. Also, this is only to separate the image link form the content in order to give the results of what you are seeing in any news topic.

Already made one, and I was waiting on more news to be posted.

These forums will be moved/deleted, and we will not use it anymore to post news. You can always post news in here.

In the new news forums, could the default "Sort By" be changed from "Start Date" to "Last Updated" please?   Thanks.

@aum It's possible, but I didn't change it. If you make changes to a topic you started after a month, it will show as it was a new topic in the begging. I fixed what you asked for by changing the descending order in order to show last news topic in the begging.

That's exactly what was needed (as I thought of the problem with the 'latest updates' you mentioned.)

 

Great forethought with right and correct implementation.  Kudos @Matt!

If already have been given the opportunity to ask questions and / or make suggestions, my modest suggestion would be to make the menu similar to the "Activity" and "Browse" menus, ie so that can already choose which subtopic to view from the submenu.
At moment must open site to see subtopics, if then open some subtopic, it opens on the same table and if after that sombody wants open another topic, must again open the news site and only after that can open new subtopic.
If there is everything in submenus available, its much simple to open another news topics.
That's what I wanted to recommend.

Thank You for your attention.

Some of your suggestions will be coming up with next project for the news, and the other suggestions will see what I can do about them.

I have 2 comments:

 

First why add image is mandatory, some news have no image and it will add no meaning to the news topic, also why using a separate field and not add it through insert image option already present

 

Second: is there an option to automatically resize images posted in the topic?

Yes. Members now must use above rules in order to post news which it's just the same as the usual with a view updates. We added template to the news in order to have instructions on how to post news for new members who would like to share important articles.

Well for too many reasons. Why mandatory and using a separate field ? Because it's important for news new look (For the same purpose).

 Yes. It will automatically resize the image from that image link source.

I'm glad to see the new news system. I like the new system. But to be honest, if I want to read the news, I don't choose to read it on the forum.😅
