Enforce panel layout
The panels should have an option to force a grid layout, instead of the floating randomness we have today. I designed a 3 column poster that displays correctly on the most common screen resolutions, but it breaks with this new layout.
Streamers should have the choice of floating(today), three, four or five column layouts.
The new channel layout makes it easier for everyone to find the info they're looking for about a streamer, which is great.
The About Section is our only place to give people a first impression of us - so you spend hours to design panels and make it all look nice and ordered on your page - until you have to find out that the panel columns change depending on everyone's screen size! So your About Section looks like a total mess for 50% of people. :(
PLEASE let us choose how many panel columns we want to lock in or make it to be the same panel columns for everyone, locked in place.
Yeah PLEASE give us a grid layout feature. The current usability is awfull.. i dont know a single person whos happy with the current solution.
Over 2 years since this, my About section still looks like garbage, because I cannot sort my panels, it changes based on the screen resolution. LET US CHOOSE THE AMOUNT OF COLUMNS WE WANT, AT THE VERY LEAST!!!
Please, make this happen. Not only what was already exposed, but even for consistency: each of my panels has a header on the same style, so when adding an extension, I need two panels: 1 for the header, 1 for the extension itself. When swapping resolutions I end up with headers heading nothing, and with panels "unheaded".
It doesn't need to be a full grid, just let as sort stuff by column and choose a maximum amount of columns. Let's say I set to to 3 columns, as it's default 1080 view. When watching in 1440 I'll still see 3 columns, instead of 5, and if on mobile, which shows one column at a time, we can have them one beneath the other instead of side by side. I think that would be the perfect middle ground between what you are doing now, and what we are asking for.
PLEASE let us choose what order our panels are shown
seems a very basic thing to not have (especially when enouraging you to develop your brand and use nice artwork for your panels and then this!?). Would definitely prefer to be able to lock a chosen grid layout (always 3 or always 4 rows), currently there is no consistency on getting it to look nice across multiple different viewers :(
I totally agree .... I put everythign so nicely lined up for a 2 column view and then when I view it on my laptop it goes 3 column and on my pc 5 column ... its completely ridiculous.
The panels are awful now. You try to make them look good and then when the chat window appears, the 4 columns turn into 3 columns so everything moves and gets merged looking messy
What's worse with this is the panel layout isn't consistent even for a single user between pages - the about section has a 4 wide layout by default and the live/chat page still has a 4 wide by default. Consistency and a forced grid need to happen for this to be useful.
If you check your stream stats, you can see what number of your viewers aren’t looking at your channel through a PC web browser. For my channel, that’s almost 50% of my viewership who are on mobile, console or a TV-app. So they’re seeing your panels 1-2 at a time. The fluid layout might be aggravating sometimes, but it’s for the greater good.
This new channel page layout will surely help us reach those viewers even more.
Absolutely down for this idea! Being able to create the layout and force that view so it's maintained for aesthetic reasons would be an amazing way to go about things.
I hate how it changes from 1080p with chat open or without, or at 1440p or 4k...it's mental. I understand why it's dynamic but some of us are more creative with our layouts, and the option would be great.
Yass! This have been annoying me forever, as i have one 1080p monitor that displays 3 columns as default and one 1440p monitor that displays 5 columns. Messes up the very planned out design of panels!
