Site update: Wider Windows, Banjo History, Attachment Manager, plus more

Here's what we've updated since my previous post. 9 down, 68 to go!

  1. Made is so folks on "medium sized" screens will have more screenspace dedicated to the main center column. We did this by removing the right-hand column on medium windows.
  2. Added “This Week in Banjo History” to the botom of the BHO homepage. This is a project I spent way to much time on several years back, but never took live on the site. I hope to add even more entries to it as time allows, but if any history buffs want to pitch in and help me expand this database let me know!
  3. Fix layouts on Banjo Challenge pages, added "The Banjo Challenge" to the "Learn" menu, and chose the winners for August's challenge!
  4. Made PM alert window at top of page more obvious with a bright background color.
  5. Removed massive empty space which was occuring at bottom of most pages.
  6. Moved attachment manager to the main composing page instead of a popup window, so it will work better with tablets and phones. Also cleaned up the Quick Reply layout a bit (more streamlining of this to come)
  7. Fixed a style bug that was setting some popup pages to a dark background.
  8. Cleaned up layout for pending Friend requests page.
  9. Fixed Blog pagination on member homepages.
  10. Fixed a permissions issue causing some random errors on other Hangout sites besides the BHO.
  11. Fixed photo layout issue on classifieds where ads with only one photos looked a bit strange.

If you have any feedback or find a bug, please post it to this forum topic.

Wow! When do you find time to eat, sleep, work (other than on BHO), visit with your family? Thanks for doing so much so quickly.

So tell a dumb head where the button is to get to his homepage and where the list of latest posts by friends is.

vfhamilton: you'll only see that list of friends' posts if your window is wide enough. Homepage link will be at the top-right on larger windows, or top-left on smaller ones.

No homepage link on top left on iPad. Just hangout logo which takes you to hangout main page

Do you have a right-hand column on your iPad, vfhamilton?

Thanks for fixing the empty space at the bottom of pages, it's much handier now.

Great work!

The Lynn Morris Banjo link is not leading to Lynn Morris, but a banjo festival.

Cheers,
Kate
