New 'panel' on right-hand side of pages?


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've recently noticed a new 'panel' appearing at the right-hand side of topic pages that have higher numbers of replies...

....it's taking up about a third of the width of the page, and compressing both text and photos into a narrower column...

....I don't need any of the 'information' contained in it - how do I get rid of it, and get back to full-width layout of the information that I DO need?

Wondering about the same thing.  There's probably an easy way to switch it off as some threads don't have it.  But you're right, it's taking up a whole column, with pretty much empty space below it.

From what I can tell, it kicks in when a topic gets to 50 posts...

 So has anyone figured out how to get rid of this annoyance? Does anyone from HHQ monitor this thread?

Not really a solution, but just a workaround..  I just click on any photo.  The photo then goes full screen and I just use the left/right arrow to scroll.   The good thing is you can now go through all the photos within the whole page (In the past you can only scroll through photos within the same post).   Still, you can't read the writeup at the same time this way.  So most other times I just zoom in on the screen to enlarge the photos -- along with the font  : (

 

Also, I used to post nice big photos and I can see they've stayed that way in my old threads (example here)  and photos have not resized.  But I notice that for any new threads, even though you've selected really large photos for posting they will only show up on the screen up to a certain size.    I really envy the large photos on ZoneFive, Britmodeller, Largescaleplanes and such.   Cinematic views are just much more enjoyable.

I have no idea what you're talking about. For me, there is no right-hand panel. Everything is full page.

Hi Chris, this thread for example.  But, as andyf117 observed, it happens only when the thread reaches 50 posts (or 50 replies?)

 

Must only apply to new threads since old ones are evidently grandfathered and not (yet) impacted.  EDIT I now see the panel in well established threads like this, so the panel worm is crawling.. Unfortunately (in this case) it doesn't take long for good threads to reach 50, so all new hot threads will shortly have this annoyance???

 

How do we bring this to the attention of ARC "regulators" who don't monitor this thread?

Did some digging on the Invision website and it appears this panel can't be toggled on/off by individual users, but is controlled solely by the Admin.

More about it >>HERE<< on Invision's website.

 

I also don't like this panel. I don't think it adds anything relevant, and is actually more trouble than it's worth in that it downsizes pics in the thread. The information it gives is only displayed at the top of the page. Once you scroll down a bit, it really only generates empty space, leaving you with smaller pics.
