New Front Page Feed
« on: March 29, 2016, 01:13:26 PM »
There's a new front page feed built off of our Twitter feed at the bottom of the forums now.  Let me know what y'all think.

Not sure I'm thrilled with it, but we'll see how it develops.

OK, it's re-scaled to a max height and then scrolls within that window

Part of what I'm trying to do is to include the other Twitter feeds that we follow, so it's not just the front page articles. It is a work in progress and I will continue to tweak it. What I don't have is a Dev environment where I can test these things without having them go live on the front page. Sorry :(
