Description

Since both of these are ready, I was wondering whether we could install them on the main site. I set up a new version (1.0.4) for this, though, since it is a feature release, you might want to move them to 1.1. It just seems like we should get them up sooner rather than later, as I'm eager to get rid of that unsightly whitespace that the current featured content area is creating . . ..

Please let me know your thoughts.

Has the whitespace issue actually been fixed?

#3 Updated by Matt Gold about 11 years ago

The new featured widget allows us to set a character limit for the text that appears in the featured box, thus shortening the white space. It's the short-term fix we discussed (as opposed to the long-term redesign process). So: yes, pretty much.

Boone, do you have an ETA on this? Please feel free to get in touch by email if you want to discuss the timeframe, but from my perspective, it would be good to get this stuff up sooner rather than later.

#5 Updated by Boone Gorges about 11 years ago

I'm going to have a serious look at this tomorrow morning (11/10). If I'm able to merge the two home page changes into the 1.0-branch without any real problems, I'll try to shoot for a 1.0.4 launch tomorrow in the late morning or early afternoon. (Wide testing isn't really needed since these changes don't deal with user data or have any real functionality beyond presentation.)

#6 Updated by Matt Gold about 11 years ago

Great. Thanks, Boone, and please let me know how it goes. I'm looking forward to the flexibility that these changes will provide.

#7 Updated by Boone Gorges about 11 years ago

FYI - just realized I can't do this in the morning. Will have a look tomorrow afternoon.

#8 Updated by Boone Gorges about 11 years ago

I don't know why it didn't dawn on me before, but Ron's plugin requires WP 3.0, which will not come until Commons 1.0. I can still release with the new Featured Content widget if you think it's important.

#9 Updated by Matt Gold about 11 years ago

Darn. Okay. The featured content widget alone will make a big difference to the layout of our homepage. If you could load it onto the site, I would appreciate it.
