I’ve been experimenting with adding Category Logo Images and would like people’s opinion on how they’d like this forum to look.
If you add an icon to a category, the icon appears:
- in the category view. (screenshot 1 below)
- at the top of the category and the makes the first sentence of the “About the xxxxx category” topic appear next to the icon. (screenshot 2 below)
Whilst I like the introduction text appearing at the top, challenges include:
- determining an optimal size for the icon
- the icon takes up a lot of space on mobile devices (can probably be solved with CSS changes)
I’ve also used small white images as an icon to bring the sentence to the top without the image size issues. (e.g. Open Economics). Care is needed with the height of the image otherwise text wrapping is not great.
Is it worth using icons or should we go without (screenshot 3 below)
Should we bother with category icons?
