Questions about latest news on main page

Post by raaar »

So, how does the "Latest news" on the main page work exactly? Does editing the forum post modify the news item?

From what I understood, posts on Ingame Community > Tournaments or Development > News show up there. Are there any others?


Btw there's this outdated wiki entry about "community news" : https://springrts.com/wiki/Community_news

Thanks.

I think it could use some style changes. The current title/separator style is this:

I think it should have a sharper contrast with the news body through a different background color, maybe alternating background colors for the news items too.
