    New Title Bar

    I just noticed the new title bar and can I say, well done.

    It's useful having the links available on all pages of the forum.

    Cheers,

    Cool!

    Glad you like.

    I did it & had to do the bolt so didn't announce it.
    The index page forwards straight into here now so I guess we'll see if the traffic differs throughout the site.
    Main site doesn't seem "too buried" with the title bar

    Also in relation to "toning down" colours, I've tried a different tone in the Humour forum.
    Getting colours to look OK together is no easy task actually. I don't really like what's there.
    Someone can submit some colour ideas...
    Just playing at the moment, doesn't mean we are changing it all.

    Love the title bar, but dont like the colours in the humour forum. Too dull. I have always liked darker colours in the back ground. I'll have a play and see what I come up with.

    Gerry - you mind if i have a go at making some buttons for the top title bar?

    Phasis, you are welcome to make buttons, however the title bar is Javascript & I don't believe buttons would work with it, I may be wrong.
    Unless I go the Frame method the forum doesn't like the fancy html.

    Here is the script if anybody has a better idea for access to the main site with a single click:
    <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code:<hr /><pre style="font-size:x-small; font-family: monospace;">&lt;script language=&quot;JavaScript&quot; src=&quot;navcond.js&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;

    The title bar is good, and yes, the <a href="http://www.aussiefrogs.com" target="_blank">www.aussiefrogs.com</a> link redirects me straight to the forums.

    The menu bar doesn't work in Safari - Apple's browser
    Interesting cos I've seen other DHTML work with Safari, but anyway - thought I'd let you know.

    It looks cool in IE on the PC's at work though

    The redirect is very nice Gerry wink

    [edit] I just noticed the background image on the redirect page doesn't load.... I'm guessing it's pointing at the wrong image file?

    Thanks DeKa, it was pointing to my harddrive, now fixed wink

    Here is the template example for the colours we have now. We can make the Humour forum the guinea pig.

    <img src="http://www.aussiefrogs.com/Jpegs/template.gif" alt=" - " />

    Phasis how'd you get the forum to change colour. Is that a feature with oprah? Can't stand that Dr Phil

    Gib - nah, a bit of Photoshop trickery. It's easy when you have flat colours. Just pick all of one colour then change it. Have you tried Opera before? I rate it. LOVE the feature where u can navigate forward and back just with the mouse bottons and the Google search bar.

    I found it really hard to get something looking good using greens as nothing really goes with it. Remember, green and blue should NEVER be worn together

    Its also hard when sticking to web-safe colours as there are some pretty large jumps between shades.

    #1 is alright, #2 is OK, but neither beat the one we have at the moment. I haven't seen the Humour forum since the colour experimentation, but i will look at it in a minute.
    I love the new bar across the top!

    Gerry,
    The colours in the humor section are great, it's much easier to read with dark letters on a lighter background.
    Great work. cheers!

    Damien,

    You're a hypocrite you know.

    I seem to remember the following was said by you in reference to my suggested changes. The issues I raised were addressed, and some I had not even thought of were also raised and have now been introduced and have gained my and your approval.

    This change for change's sake was very worth while. Just wanted to point that out wink

    deka,
    Gloat all you like little man!!

    Cut and paste is great hey, makes it so easy to take one sentance, and use it out of context.
    Well done. I award you D H of the day award.

    It mearly means either gibgib decided to make changes or more than likely was pressured by the MINORITY to make changes.
    One Fact remains It is a great Site & Forum, and it Belongs to gibgib and he is free, to do as he bloody well wants with it.

    Hmmn, would that be the minority in terms of activity on the forum (eg. posts).

    I once had a look at the forum going back years and there certainly are a lot of characters that haven't posted for a long time.

    In any case - there was nothing to prevent the conservatives from saying no.

    in this instance Minority means the SMALL number of active participants of this Forum who were pushing for change.
    And blind freddie could see it was not even 1% of the active people here. cheers!

    Hey, hey, settle whistle

    We'll stuff around with the colours in the humour forum but it doesn't mean it's a done thing. We'd never all agree on the same colour scheme anyway.
    The current colour in there looks dirty maybe even nostalgic. Colour co-ord is certainatly not my forte.

    All that is done now can be undone in about 5 minutes. Forwarding of aussiefrogs.com, title bar, colours; we can trial it.
