So then, we have 2 options before us:—
  • remove the present (ugly) one, :devil or
  • replace it with a photoshopped replica of the original (beautiful) one.
My personal tendency is to not only banish the logos from all sites but also the complete headers — what do you guys suggest? :idea:

My personal intentions are to replace a HDD in my Laptop and buy a new monitor for my Desktop. Both gave up the ghost today and am using a 21" TV set with VGA PC input on my Desktop at this moment. :cry :cry

Changes To The Notification Alert Pop-up:—
  • Replaced the glaring White background with the more pleasing Pista Green color,
  • Rounded-off all the 4 corners (looks much better than it's looking on the illustration.)
  • Changed the Heading from Capitals to Sentence Case.
  • Reduced the excess gap between the characters in the Heading.
Uploaded codes to the server. :thumbsup

Not sure if it's just me or if this is a real bug, but the "Back To Top" (BTT) Popup Arrow (see SC) doesn't seem to want to show up when a user clicks on a Notification Menu Link and ends up viewing the last post in a thread (ie. At the bottom of the thread). The User has to scroll up just a little before the BTT shows up.

Wonder if it could be made to show up when the User is viewing the last post at the bottom of said thread (w/o having to scroll at all). :scratch :scratch I mean, why should a user have to scroll at all if there's a BTT Popup/Button available???? :scratch :think

Just asking (and maybe hoping a little too). :devil

Yes, the Back To Top button has been designed to disappear after one has scrolled down (or up) after a certain point — unfortunately, it's reappearance is tied to the scrolling action (an action which does not take place when a notification is clicked.) :(

Hmmm, sounds like a pair of scissors is the tool for the job. Time to "cut the cord" as it were. :devil

Introduced a new feature for the visually challenged, that zooms smaller images for better readability when the cursor is hovered over them (without kicking the User out of the page) — a couple of good examples of small images, right here on this page (please test the freshly uploaded codes and provide feedback.) :idea:

This feature is supposed to work even on images under Preview. :thumbsup

Seems to work as advertised - AS LONG AS the cursor is DIRECTLY OVER the image (my SCs in your example) (in both Normal and Preview Modes) with the following caveat ... :roll:

If you right click your mouse (while over the image) and then move the cursor over the right click menu, the zoomed image goes back to normal (even though the cursor is still technically over the image itself as well).
  • Is this behavior something you had anticipated???? :scratch And
  • Is this behavior "normal" (i.e. to be expected, ahem ... A "design' feature :roll: :devil )???? :scratch
