New Improvements!!!!
- Horn_Of_Plenty on 13-Jan-07 02:01 PM
HI DD Webmaster!!!! Thanks for the new and improved changes to the website! Now, it's easier to keep tabs on all of the members and on my own information! I love the progress chart in the top right hand corner! Everything's so nice!

I've been working on reformatting some stuff, mostly things you shouldn't notice.

I did embed the average monthly tracking on the top of each public diary instead of having to click on it and opening a new page. I'm also messing with a mouseover for "public diaries" to have the most recent posters listed. You may notice little display problems and such as I tweak things, but all should be back to normal after the weekend.

Thanks Webmaster for making improvements on the site. However, unlike Horn of Plenty, I'm not in favor of the tracking weight on display. I'd leave it as an option if people want to click on a link to see. Liza


biscottibody59 on 15-Jan-07 09:52 AM
I don't like the weight tracker showing up automatically either.

Also, I liked being able to see a long list of people in the menu, can't do that now.

Also, could you make it so double-clicking lets you open up that diary instead of having to go over to the browse button???

Otherwise, change is good?!?


ddwebmaster on 15-Jan-07 11:34 AM
The reason that things are getting embedded is based on web browsing habits. Typically, visitors prefer the fewer mouse clicks the better, which makes for easier navigation of a site (it also makes for easier maintenance).

As for the dropdown list of usernames, it's a form submission list, so there's no real way to be able to double click on it in it's current format. You can find users in it pretty easily be pressing the first letter of the user's name until the correct username is highlighted.

Okay, but you know what would be really cool? If we could click on the names of the people who leave us comments and then go straight to their diaries. You know, it would be like clicking on their names from the front page. It would just be really convenient because sometimes one wants to respond to a comment but one forgets about later scrolling through the list of public diaries and reading everyone else's! What do you think?


ddwebmaster on 18-Jan-07 07:59 AM
It's a good idea. I'll put it on my list.


ddwebmaster on 18-Jan-07 11:02 AM
I took a few minutes and think I implemented it correctly. Let me know if that's what you were thinking of (username links in comments).


borntocry on 19-Jan-07 05:18 AM
Well, actually (not to seem ungrateful or anything!) I was thinking of the comments on one's own diary, when one clicks on the "Read Comments" link. I think the modification you made was to the comments on the public diaries (which is great too!).


ddwebmaster on 19-Jan-07 07:35 AM
I see.....

I'll see what I can do over the next few days.


sasyredneckgirl on 19-Jan-07 09:24 AM
i know someone proably has already mentioned this but would soooooo love it if we could change colors and fonts :):)... Love the new improvements :):):)


liza36 on 23-Jan-07 08:16 AM
DD Webmaster, The Favorites box covers the Browse button on the home page, so I can't click and access their diary. Is there another way to see people's entries? All the boxes cover the text on the home page. Thanks.


geevee on 23-Jan-07 09:37 AM
Ditto to what Liza said about the favorites box covering browse. I was at a standstill and had to go to forum. I couldn't access public diaries.


ddwebmaster on 23-Jan-07 04:17 PM
What size / resolution are the screens that have things covered up?

I've tested the site down to 1024x768 and nothing's covered up. Are there people still browsing using 800x600 or 640x480 resolutions? If so, I'll see if I can rework things again. Please also respond to the poll in the forums asking about screen resolutions (it's been up for about 7+ months and noone listed a resolution under 1024x768).


Horn_Of_Plenty on 23-Jan-07 07:10 PM
where it says to click on a member's bio, it sometimes covers up the browse button near it to open up another dd member's page.


ddwebmaster on 23-Jan-07 09:50 PM
I moved the "browse" button down. Please let me know what monitor resolution you're using to have these problems.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 24-Jan-07 02:12 PM
i'm not sure of the monitor resulution, how do i figure that out? also, thanks for moving the browse button, it's all better!
