The Lounge What is on Your Mind? Similar Threads Redesign for UNIX.com

Similar Threads Redesign for UNIX.com

Hello.

I have redesigned our "similar threads" for a more "clean style" in both the desktop view and the mobile view for the forum "show thread".

The new design is a simple straight-forward use of div elements and all the legacy table elements have been removed.

The result is a "clean" style which works well in both mobile and desktop.

Enjoy!

PS: I also think this new design will help with SEO a bit as well, which has already been improving quite a lot lately as traffic from search engine referrals continue to rise steadily since May when I started making changes based on recent updates to Google's algo.

Note: Have also updated the "show posts" pages of the desktop view with the same "clean" style.

Also,
  • Updated the maximum number of similar threads to show to 10 (again) from 5.

I changed this from 5 to 10 a while back, but for some reason, it got switched back to 5.

Update.

Added some new discussion status information to each similar thread block, for example:
