that'd be very tricky I think. Eventually it might be worth having a go getting thumbnails as links again. If we can do that, might be able to get the text thing under the photo - but getting css right itself will be very tricky.

alt/title should be working I think, at least on some content types.

hmmm would it be that hard? cos that additional image module thing (is that still here?) had it, could that be copied maybe? hmm but then caption would have to not display in teasers. well just a thought.

The image module and imagefield work very differently, would work pretty differently, and the way it does the caption is a bit weird as well. Never know, might find a way later on, but definitely one for later I think.

all breadcrumbs will have to be bigger if we do that - I think we probably could. I'll try a couple of pix.

i think he's on about the logo-graphic link which is a bit counter-intuitively sized/positioned at the moment, rather than the home breadcrumb

ahh ok.

The big issue with that - for me anyway, is that it doesn't appear to be clickable on the whole image, so I have to find the right bit to click. That's very, very irritating. Made the breadcrumbs slightly larger anyway.

Is there a way to get rid of or fill the space on the right hand side? I'm guessing that it'd be a bitch to code but either expandfing the width of the posts after a certain point on the page (could be a generous limit) or putting in random links just to fil it up would make the space not seem wasted.

Expanding the posts would be very tricky. There'll probably be more in that column soon so less white space.

yeah that's what i meant, i didn't mean the breadcrumbs, i think they were better smaller (sorry!)

yeah we'll be putting in more blocks and stuff soon which will fill more of it as well...

Ok more issues

IE7 - menu's have dropped off the top grey bars and into the whitespace beneath (i.e. invisible).
FF2 on MacOsx - style sheets are having no effect on thread views - so just coming out as plain text.

Havent got time to deal with this atm.

ok there's a big gap under the header in firefox and I'm not sure why.

Safari - the drop down seems to be displayed vertically.

Other stuff seems alright at the moment.

also, old issue, but in IE7 node titles in views are displayed vertical align middle against thumbnails, when they should be at the top.

put border 'round images, but it affects everything.

Need to work out all image classes for views/nodes + make float-right and float-left css classes so we can apply it to those individually. Then it won't go 'round smileys. Sector logos are a special case that might get tricky.

i really think the search should be in a consistent place - if not right-aligned in the top header, always at the top of the right column?

i don't like it in the column, it takes up too much space. i think it should be in the header like before.
