Forbidding Black Box

Admin geeks wink

Why do I have a huge,thick, forbidding black box at the top of my screen instead of the usual useful header bar of features??? It is making it slower to navigate and is giving me a headache. sad

Using i.e. has given you some kind of browser dysphasia, not my fault.

file
>> new tab (or just CTRL-T)

then put a new website in to see how tabs work.

for the plugin - click "firefox plugin" after the search box.

Then click on the G icon in your search area (top right), and see the sexy libcom search option.

Then stop complaining.

hmmm with the top menu i think things on it would be best left-aligned...

are we gonna stick with it now for sure? so we can add in rest of stuff? regions/sectors/etc?

Also in browse box in side i think maybe we could put regions + sectors there + just link to all latest stuff in each region/sector?

I'm wondering if we should go for a normal menu on top - just links to main sections. Then have news/library/history - anything else which has subsections on the right menu, but with all the regions/sectors and everything else off that. Then we're only duplicating three items and all the lower layer stuff is off one menu.

i don't like duplicating, it's very messy. but then not too bothered about drop-downs on top. hmmm could stick them within "browse" on right I guess. that might be cool...

Yeah it could go under "browse". If we do a custom news index, which we should, then right menu could include:

browse
-news (latest)
--news regions
---uk
---etc.
--news sectors
---transport
---etc.
history (latest)
......

Then nothing goes to the same page as the top menu, but the different options are still there.

Will try to set something approximate up. Also going to split site-menu and user stuff again at least for now, since the pop-out stuff messes with the admin menu.

alright I've done news now - has all regions and sectors in.

Not sure about having everything like that under "browse" - because that'd go four levels deep, so made "site menu" into "browse" - overall stuff "site", and gave news it's own entry.
