A sampling of members have been chosen to see the new look. All forum moderators and plants admins now see the new look. All members who are logged in can see it now.

I am doing it this way so I can get your feedback about any issues that may have arisen from this redesign. So if you're one of the ones who is seeing the new design, please check the site out and let me know your thoughts!

Was it Marlyn? who asked about the redundancy of having the welcome twice? She's right...it really doesn't need to be up there with the time....although I do like the welcome following me around the site Shrug!

It only shows the "Welcome" message on the homepage but the blue bar is on every page of the site.

The welcome message is up top to show you that you are logged in, and what your username is. If you can suggest a better word than welcome I'd love to hear it.

Isn't the fact that it says "logout" instead of "login" enough to tell me that I am indeed logged in? Blinking

Was just thinking that it might leave more room below the banner if it was not there twice??

And that is all I am going to say today, because I am neither a moderator nor an admin.

I do like the new look as is .. who cares if it is redundant ... maybe so am I. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Shrug!
Logout doesn't tell you what username you're logged in as.

Lee Anne, could you take a screenshot of your ATP homepage and post it here? I want to see what it looks like in your browser.

I go between numerous accounts. I only post as dave but I have lots of other accounts I use so I can see the site as different member types (admin, non-admin, etc)
