Suggestion - Sidebar Widgets


I know this is more than a simple request, especially with all of the themes maybe less than standardized - but a thought for the future would be to have a sidebar with the first of the widgets to be to add php, Javascript or HTML code.

I have another forum https://www.moparweb.com/ where I have a few code widgets in the sidebar for a static image going to an Internet address when clicked (html), Revolvermaps (JavascriptP) and Revive ads (php).

Isn't part of a standard theme, but is doable, one recent example of an xmb forum doing just that: https://www.bigfish-gaming.com/community/

There is also the old portal hack, which probably hasn't been tested with recent version[s]: https://www.xmbforum2.com/modifications/portal-system-6.0.zi...

Ok, that looks to be a pretty good start. That site doesn't have the version displayed - and I don't have the time right now to try that hack on my site - or depend that it works on the next version - and have to restore the forum if it blows up. Something inherent to XMB would be a nice feature in the future, to ensure forward compatibility.

XMB 1.9.11 but not sure they based that outlay on the portal hack.

Well I ticked off e-mail on reply.

I really would like to implement a side bar with widgets. If someone ever tests this hack with the new Beta version when it goes live - let me know so I can give it a try. I'm a little too busy to be bleeding edge right now.
