My new Group Layout With Group Info Display

So the idea for this was to be able to view the About Group info without having to go to the group from the groups list page to find out what the group is about then go back to the group list page to view more groups. I also wanted to change the way the groups looked rather than those 'box's' in the group list page.

Note there is no code for this yet as still undergoing to testing and also getting the view group info working on normal groups list display and modules you add to pages.

Here is a link to the groups if you want to see how it looks and works by clicking the View Info button:

Here is an image showing the new layout, I also added a default look underneath so you can compare

You may notice also the little Square icon in the top left, this is so that you can make the box bigger to view the content if it's quite a bit. In the example below I added text, an image and also a video into the about section so this will show up here so you can see how that would look.

    • Thanks JF, you may notice that the groups looks normal at the moment as just working on getting the View info to work with normal group layouts and group modules.

      You may be interested to see I have done something similar to the photo's so when you hover over a photo it shows the title and who posted it and when.
