Re: Do you like the site?

I like the site for the most part. My weekends are my busy time so I haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet. If the main site isn't going to come back we should get together and vote or something on what forum we want to use since Heather also has one going.

Re: Do you like the site?

I think it looks nice to me. I really don't have a preference either way to which forum we use. I am just happy to be a part of it after trying to get on the EC forum for many months with no success. :shock:

Re: Do you like the site?

I like it -- No headbanging or "Here's to you" toasting smileys, but I can live with it. ;)

I can probably find some more smilies...your a hard task master critter :lol:

Re: Do you like the site?

something i find highly annoying is the way that the forum page has a scrollbar within the accual page instead of just being fitted to the size of your browser (well idk if its just me or what) but if you dont know what i mean, i can take a picture of it, but it makes it really hard to even read anything on the forum because i have to constantly scroll back and forth to read even a sentence

Re: Do you like the site?

I would like to see the actual forum fit the page properly instead of only 3/4! and I would like the forum (after I've posted) to take me automatically straight to my new post- nitpicky I know ;)
Other than that I like it...but do agree on voting so we can start to accumulate everything in one spot, as well as to be fair.

Re: Do you like the site?

What resolution do you have your screen set to? I need to know where its working and where its not.

I have my screen set to a fairly high resolution so that is probably why it looks ok on my screen and not yours. I did notice that if you have wide pictures it will scroll off.

I'll think about how I may can rearrange things to make it work better.

edit: I disabled scrolling in the forum. The problem with this is if you have a wide graphic or picture it cuts it off. Let me know if this is better or worse.

Re: Do you like the site?

I noticed the scrolling thing too. Glad it is gone!!! I also agree that we need to all get with one site rather then a few here and a few there. :HB

Re: Do you like the site?

the non scrolling is alot better, and it wasnt really my screen resolution but the fact that i normally dont have my browser full screen

Re: Do you like the site?

Ok, so when I just tried to search the gallery it would take me right back to the home page?? Not sure why. :|

Re: Do you like the site?

I like the look of this forum and the way we can have galleries and such. Sometimes I just can't get in though! I wish I could undo the facebook synching thing I started out with.

Re: Do you like the site?

Sara, They moved my hosting account to a new server the day before yesterday and they had some problems so it may not have been the facebook connect. If your still having trouble in a day or so email me at admin at equine-color dot info And I can disable the facebook connect mod and see if that fixes it.

I'll look into the gallery search thing also.

I'm working on trying to get the forum full screen instead of like it is. The problem is that then the links to the rest of the site won't be as available from the forum pages. :BH

Re: Do you like the site?

Can you put the links in a drop down menu that is along the top rather than on the sides?

I love love love the galleries! I take thousands (literally took 1200 in one day once) of photos and never have any thing to use them for other than to look at occasionally. :D

oh wow!!!
i just did something magic! I middle clicked this topic, to open it in its own tab. It's now all by itself, outside of the frame. It has its own url and everything! You know how normally if you refresh a topic it brings you back to the main page of the forum, well now it doesn't!
so....
open in new tab = magic.

Re: Do you like the site?

Krickette,
I was wondering why sometimes it was full screen and other times it was not. Thanks for answering that for me!! :D

Re: Do you like the site?

Its an embedded program. People cannot sign up outside the main site.

How is the embedded forum looking now? I made some changes to the formating of the site.

Re: Do you like the site?

I don't know what you've changed but I like it, except that there is sooo much header that I have to scroll down before I get to the "meat" of the page, these text responses! Please keep this site up and open until we all decide where to go, it took me five pages of gooooooogle searches to find y'all!

Re: Do you like the site?

This is a completely new site not related to the old one at all except by all the things we learned while there. We're not sure exactly what happened to the old one.

Since this is a new site the search engines don't have us rated very high yet. Things should pick up.

Yeah, I know the only things here that are related are US! 8-} Although I do see some new faces. Good to see any faces after the last dump.

Re: Do you like the site?

I was just going to suggest the same thing as Tiana. The banner plus other headers take up so much room that no forum topics are visible unless I scroll down. sometimes if it takes a while to load and I've already started scrolling, as it finishes it pops back up to show only the banner again.

Re: Do you like the site?

Ok we can do something about that....We might have to hit Krickette up for a thinner banner :oops: Or maybe ACC could do one for some free advertising? Or maybe one of the other members would like to take a shot at it? I'll also see about taking some of the white space out of the forum header.

Those of you who use Internet explorer. Are you seeing a blank box on the forum administration that's in the sidebar? I could take away the forum header all together but if the side bar forum admin thing isn't working right that wouldn't' be a good idea.

Re: Do you like the site?

Ok I made the banner smaller and took out some of the white space at the top of the forum. How is it now?

Re: Do you like the site?

I love the banner but it's a bit too big takes up too much of the screen and I have to keep going up and down page - my only gripe - sorry ;)

Re: Do you like the site?

If you haven't done so already clear out your browser cache. I did reduce the size of the banner but if your browser cached you won't see the change. Let me know if you do that and its still to big. There are other changes I can make they will just take longer to implement.

Re: Do you like the site?

Yeah, I made the banner huge so that I could work with it in photoshop, I meant to resize before uploading. I never intended for it to be quite so...huuuge, lol! sorrry
