Reworked the menu to use simpler image buttons for maximum compatibility with mobile readers, ie smartphones and the like. Still not fond of the new feed widget which displays whole posts. Considers reversion. New favicon 64x64.

2014-05-27
Some buttons were made easier to read. Added database, IRM, chat & jukebox buttons. Added mouseover link descriptions. Altered feed function and colours. After various tests and work, decided to go with Kiwi chat applet.

The database menu is now xhtml/css instead of javascript. May be bugs left to hammer out.

As much as I love the idea of using Aurebesh, I think they should probably be in English as well, perhaps on a rollover or something so they can be actually read. The script choice is close, but a couple of them are much harder to read (the Communications and Wiki links, mainly).

I'm also wondering if they should be under the main logo instead of off on their own to the side. Just my $0.02, at least.

The status field tells you where the link goes. But I can add mouseovers easily enough. Once I have something else that goes on the left side, perhaps I'll move the buttons.

I'll have to ask Vik on that, I don't use FB either but I know some members set it up in old comments threads.

I'll take a stab at the coding to help though.

Code: Select all

<table width="100%" border="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="33%"><h5><a href="http://www.facebook.com/" target="_blank"><img src="siteimageurlhere/facebook_icon.png" width="40" height="40" hspace="5" align="absmiddle" /></a>LIke our facebook page</h5></td>
        <td width="34%"><h5><a href="http://www.facebook.com/groups/*********/?notif_t=group_activity" target="_blank"><img src="siteimageurlhere/facebook_icon.png" alt="facebook link" width="40" height="40" hspace="5" border="0" align="absmiddle" /></a>Join our facebook group</h5></td>

      </tr>
    </table>
Should be something like that^ we'll have to do some digging for the the links needed for the ******* group # etc.
