On the front page there are links for a few types of blogs.
Our front page has a few types of blogs and forum posts listed in tabs.
These blogs are from the most recommended members of our site, have at least a couple of hundred words and some photos. We aim to restrict this number so that over the period of a day the list completely changes, but the aim is to promote the highest quality blogs.
Most Recent Blogs
The latest public blogs, simply that. Should change regularly throughout the day.
Blogs which feature a panoramic photo. Some really stunning photos are added as panoramas and here we showcase them.
Blogger of the Week
We try to promote some of the lesser known, newer members of the site by giving them a "blogger of the week" award. This tab shows the latest blogs from just the winners of this award.
Forum topics/threads selected by our moderators, usually one added a day.
The topics with most responses. (will change to recent responses soon!)
The newest topics. (might change if spam starts to feature heavily)
Any feedback is appreciated, as with ideas for potential tabs - space is limited to roughly what we have currently - but any better ideas?
for the "Featured Blogs" --> is there a new rule to the number of recommendations one has, in order to be featured in it? It used to be at least 3?
Yes - the minimum of recommendations is currently 3 - we may push this up to 4 sometime.
Is there an RSS/Atom feed for highlights of the Forum?
I'd like to keep track without having to return to the front page.
if you quite publish does your blog still appear on the front page - featured blogs?
Hi Sally & Nick,
Yes, it would. The only difference with 'Quiet publish' is that the email notifications aren't sent to subscribers.
