    Be nice if we could have a home page with tiled categories much like the social groups. Each tile would take the user to that section of the Forums.

    Possible in the future. Would probably require reworking the entire forum listing. Right now it is in HTML Tables and that doesn't work well with these changes.

      Thanks. Be a very different look for a forum.

        I have to say I have long felt this. The new Groups and Blogs tiled look is brilliant. If every channel has a decent picture it looks awesome:

        I got around this by making the social-groups page the homepage and renaming it. It looks amazing.

          I understand that the tile size is 350 X 350 can that be reduced?

            BTW. I've renamed groups to Clubs and where my members had no interest in groups Clubs are drawing in new members and content.

                  There's an article on the same site that describes it.

                    I can't get it to display anything. The correct module is "Channel Display Module" correct?

                      Check this Argentine website, each post is a box; I saw it a long time ago and it seems to me a really curious idea:

                        I doubt we will support card or grid views for forums and topic lists. People want too much information shown that prevents this kind of presentation from being created easily. The amount of resources vs. benefit isn't there. We are adding card/grid views where it does make sense for the majority of customers though. We already support a card or grid view for Blogs and Social Groups. There is an improvement request to add a card view for articles here: https://tracker.vbulletin.com/vbulle...sues/VBV-20190

                        I did create an improvement request to allow a simpler forum and topic list in the past. This would have allowed the removal of a lot of extraneous data from the list and allowed card-like or column views. However, it was closed due to a lack of votes and community request for such a feature.

                            Unless there is considerable demand for it, it is unlikely to get anywhere. That's the simple reality.
