Menu put on the forums

We have put a menu on the forums
this is so we can remove the banner from the top (adverting LANs or trailers or general adverts)

This way we can keep the content out of your links from the top

The menu is fully customisable in many ways, you will also soon be able to add your own "personal" links (that only you can see)
for a handy links section

I will be posting more on how do do that later in the week.

There is a right hand menu, but no plans at this stage to use it right now.
If/when it does come in, its going to be highly likely we will allow logged in users to disable it (or disable one of them)

Still doing a lot of changes with the system, so you may see the left menu going up and down from time to time tonight.

Re: Menu put on the forums

"where are the whiners", Very mature .
I think the side bar would look better on the right, it just looks odd when it pushes the main bit (postbit) of the forums over.
Also where have the ads gone? is that them above the trailers?

+1 for putting it over to the right.

Re: Menu put on the forums

Right.., How many of you have tried one of these machines / Os? if you haven't then end the comments please.
Anyhow back to the thread, Rasher what res are you testing the new stuff on, Reason I say is im browsing at 1280 x 800 and with the sidebar there the main forum page is looking a little squashed but still ok, with another on the otherside its going to squash the forum down to far.

Re: Menu put on the forums

Don't blame you, not partial to Safari myself, but its an unfortunate side effect of having to test in all the browsers as a designer :|

Do you have ad-blocker installed? If so do you even see the tab that ad-blocker generates on Flash & Javascript content?

Re: Menu put on the forums

Unless a ad blocker is installed by default then no, don't believe in them, viewing a website with adblockers on is like stealing, the sites need the revenue from the ads to keep the site going.
