Hey y'all ... I want to know what you think about the shovels attached to your names. 

The forum comes with a "ladder system" based on the number of posts by every member, giving a rank from 1 star to 5 stars.  I thought it might be fun to give every body a shovel of their own with a digging type caption.  Here's what I came up with:

"Digger"  - This is for those who have posted less than 100 times


"Extreme Digger" - This shovel will automatically kick in at the 100th post


"Shackoholic" - Well, let's face it, anybody who posts more than 500 times has to be suffering from a Shack addiction!!

Hi Jim,

Not sure if it's on my end or there. But when I click onto your site I have to end up centering the main page, by sliding the horizontal bar at the bottom of the page all the way over to the left, in order to read all that is written.
I'm viewing this on a 19"LCD monitor so there is much more visibility than on my other PC with a 19" CRT monitor.
Just checking,   Richard

Same here Jim as Richards, only I'm on a 17"Flatron monitor.

I like the shovels.

Okeedokee there, boys and girls .... I have fixed what was ailing your browser viewing.

I have switched over to using the Mozilla browser as my primary internet tool - which was not afflicted with this problem - but I did fix it yesterday.  ONLY ... with some problems I've been experiencing with my web host I hadn't noticed that the files I ammended were not getting uploaded to the site.  WELL!!

Honestly, I'm about to make another change in web hosts (which will cause another slight hiccup once I actually do it, like the last time).

Anyhow, it's all better now.  BUT ... please let me know if there are ANY pages that give you that same problem, okay?  Even if you just notice that weird section of buttons hanging out over the edge and not playing well with the other buttons that are neatly lined up! 

Love, Jim

You are welcome!

I just changed the whole Shack navigation buttons.  They're no longer on the top of the pages but on the side panel instead.  Whatch think?

Hey, Jim
I like what you've done with the place! Everything's fine on my computer and I like the buttons over to the left panel.

And, OH, I've been imformed that I have an addiction today (greenish looking shovel problem) and all I can say is that the cure for the addiction is more of the same!

I don't mind the navigation buttons there. I can't get into my PM's now either, though I could earlier.

I'm not big on this new feature, where I want to type in another colour other then black & then have to type the text in this wee little script strip.

As well, the same little script prompt window comes up again if I want to change my script size.Now I've changed my font & I get the same thing. Is this permanent?

Okeedokee ... I have taken care of this little conflict.  I thought I had already taken care of that, but I have discovered that the database conversion program added numerous sets of specific permissions on top of the generic permissions that will override all the settings I had in place.  If you find something I missed then just let me know.

Alrighty then ... as far as the new text boxes that you are being confronted with ... YOU have the power to change that to the NEW "Rich Text Editor".  Go into your Profile (Profile button on left panel) and scroll down till you see the option to turn on the editor.  Then click the update button on the bottom and you will then have the better editor!!  :)

Jim

I think the reason for this option is so that those who have older, non-conforming browers will still be able to post (some Shacksters in the past complained of that problem and ended up having to download another browser in order to post).

Okay ... now to go figure out what the heck I did with the PM controls!

Okeedokee once again ... success!!

Coding is so doggoned touchy.  After I had successfully gotten all the button to work, including the PM button, I went about quickly deleting them from the top of each page.  Unbeknownst to myself, in doing so, I had separated that part of the functioning from one teensy weensy bit of info ... leaving all browsers in ignorance as to the identity of one little bitty nugget!    It's like telling someone to go into a crowded room and get Bob ... without identifying who Bob is.  Yeah, under all that complexity there is a very simple logic that MUST remain intact!

Love, Jim

You're back in business!!!!!     I may fool around with that color picker when I get bored sometime as I think the number of colors is just a little over the edge!   :)

Hey y'all ...

I've been fooling around with some more stuff, and then thought to myself, "Self, why not make one more shovel for those who have made 1000+ posts?"  And being the clever little fellow that I am ... I DID! 

Here it is:

Shackaddict


What do you think???  :)

By the way, there are TWO 1000+ posters (other than myself ... but mine stays red ... hehe!)

Oh yeah, I also replaced the bland little black line that separated the post from the signature with a shovel line.  Any like it?

Jim

     Jim, this is great.  I like this richtext editor, and the colors are great!   (Robyn thanks for bringing that up)   


      And now I'll close with my favorite verse,

     Thanks, Jim!

Hi Jim,

 I like the changes but you know me,i take awhile to get used to new things.one thing i do see is that i will need to post 152 more times now so that i can achieve the coveted "Shackaddict" level.
