    Chat box

    Where did the shout box go off the front page? Is it hidden, deleted or has it moved and I am I not looking in the right place?

    We have disabled it for the moment and replaced it with the Welcome Panel you now see. The height of both panels together was very high and required a bit of scrolling to hit content. We are working out a few ideas regarding the home page and whether to make it a content based homepage or keep it forum only. A content page would have shoutbox, top threads/posts, latest 3D printing news, etc but you would have to click through to get to forums.

    I like the welcome panel since I often lose PMs on other forums.

    Can you do a side by side though? potentially with customizable content in the WP?

    Anything is possible of course. we just have to try and figure out what could work best. one of the challenges is that screen sizes and devices vary so much.

    Best way is to have the chat box on a page with "realtime posts" then one can just sit and camp in the chat box and see the realtime posts scrolling by as they happen.
