Changes to the header

  1. Jan 28, 2013 #1
    As you may have noticed I've been fiddling with the header of the site. I've moved both the nav breadcrumbs and login bit to the left and right of our logo. This helps move the discussions higher up the page and saves space. I'm still tweaking things, so don't be alarmed if there are big display problems. Do alert me if there are constant problems. Different browsers and what not always display a little different. thanks!

    I was wondering what that was! Assumed it was a problem with my browser at first.

    We have one report of the header being broken. Please report here if you see any problems.

    I have a huge empty gray space between the header and the posts. ;)

    Can you screenshot it for me? and what browser/resolution?

    Actually, I was kidding and assuming you were tinkering with it right now.
    But here it is.

    Note that the rightmost text in the header is normally not overlapping, but I resized the window to limit the picture size.


    I'm running Chrome 23.0 on Windows 7 in 1680x1050.

    That's ok, you shouldn't be browsing with that small of a window size :D

    I like the part where you say in your OP that it saves space.
    I guess that is true, but I only see that about a quarter of my window is completely unused. ;P

    Stuff is jumbled over. IE8 on Windows XP

    Thanks, what version of IE/Windows are you using?
  13. Jan 28, 2013 #12
    Already noted.

    More to the point that was with 100% zoom on a 4:3 screen.

    Reducing zoom to 75% makes it more normal, but nearly unreadable for size.

    Can do another screenshot, but don't want to waste storage space. I assume these images will be deleted once they are finished with for same reason.

    hmmm I can emulate to IE7 and it's broken, but if I emulate to IE8 everything is fine.

    Is it a dot net thing?

    Is what a .Net thing?

    You said you could do IE8 OK. But on my bog standard Dell Office setup at 1024/768 resolution the headers jumble over as shown at 100% zoom.
    My Microsoft gets hazy at this point but I wondered if there was something to do with dot net?

    Strangely enough it offers normal presentation in this thread, but not in the general physics forums or threads there.

    Justed checked and abnormal in other threads in the announcements forum either

    Yeah it's kind of...disorienting!

    But change is good. Generally. Except when it isn't. But *this* change - it's good!

    Greg said "emulate" IP8 OK, not "do". Maybe there's a bug in the emulator that makes it better than the original.

    Joking apart: I get the same as Stdiot with the same system specs (IE8, Win XP SP3 + all MS security patches installed, 1024x768 display) but different physical hardware - so it's not a Dell-specific problem.

    Yeah because of differences in OS and updates, I can't truly emulate what your environment is. Keep the updates coming.
