Yeah I know what you mean, the board index can get a bit cluttered with the masonry effect. A sidebar widget listing all categories would be useful. I definitely want to try a more "traditional" forum layout in my next theme design
If question is big or has multi part then while responding it is needed to view it.
If the screen space is not big enough to show both then atleast on a scroll questions should be viewable. As of now thats not the case.
The switch is not working for me.
I am just using the standard NodeBB forum features, no crazy plugins that are meant to affect the notifications. The switch does not work, and digests are going out...
