Be able to change what is shown in the side bar?

  • So, at the moment there are two topics in "Featured topics" on the side bar, F@H, and CS. I've already read the CS, and I can't participate in F@H because I don't have a powerful enough computer for myself, let alone F@H. So, that is unnecessarily taking up space, which could rather just be used for showing more Recent Topics or something else. I'd like an option to hide it. Or at least move it below the Recent Topics.
  • Is there any way to hide the recent videos from LMG? I check YouTube regularly and don't want to see that here. I've either watched it, or ignored it. It just takes too much space which I'd appreciate if was rather used for the Recent Status Update section, which I(can't tell if others do) do check frequently.
  • How about a customization feature, where you can choose what and in which order you want to be shown on the side bar? Like Recent Topics, Status Updates, Bookmarked/pinned topics(could be added, for example, I'd like to pin the banning game, Experiences with non techies and Rate the Photo Above you).

+1 on this one.

It would be great if we can hide LMG's videos.

Spoiler

I'm here for the forum itself, not their latest uploads, seeing those thumbnails everyday is getting annoying.

It also makes load times much worse for slower connections. 

Probably the person to ask about servers, workstations, old Latitudes, or hard drives

You're in luck.

 

If you use uBlock origin, add these to your filters, you can ! out or just delete the ones you still want to show up

Number of videos varies if I am not mistaken. So you will most likely hide "Recent Status Updates" on the home page sometimes... better to use nth-child range selector and add an exclusion for last child if on home page.

Numbers will only need to be changed if they delete a channel or when the featured topics disappears. It's not perfect, but it works for me.

Oh yeah, honestly I haven't been paying attention to what videos are displayed on the right.
Heh true, these are all user hacks, they don't need be perfect 🙂.

Speaking of hacks, here is a quick and dirty one in case someone uses js injectors (like Violentmonkey plugin for example),
it leaves only Topics. quick links (Discord, merch, etc.) and Recent Status Updates (if on root page):

const cjsAddCSS = s => document.head.appendChild(document.createElement('style')).innerHTML=s;
if(location.pathname == '/'){
  cjsAddCSS('#ipsLayout_sidebar > div.cWidgetContainer > ul.ipsList_reset > li:not(:nth-child(n+2):nth-child(-n+3)):not(:last-child) {display:none!important}');
}else{
  cjsAddCSS('#ipsLayout_sidebar > div.cWidgetContainer > ul.ipsList_reset > li:not(:nth-child(n+2):nth-child(-n+3)) {display:none!important}');
};

This is good, but it doesn't work on the main page, only in topics.

 

Edit: nvm, I'm just dumb and forgot to enable it on the main page lol

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.

This is amazing.

I will recommend an NHu12s (or an NHd15 (maybe)) for your PC build. Quote or @ me @Prodigy_Smit for me to see your replies.

I've made a Chrome extension to customize what is shown on the side bar. Note that this only removes the elements after they've loaded, so won't help in loading the page faster or anything like that. As I've tested this, it removes the stuff you've selected on all pages.

It's on Github: https://github.com/RockSolid1106/LTT-Sidebar-customizer
