|I'm playing around with a new feature that I launched this afternoon: the floating menu bar. When you are on a page of ATP you know that there has always been at the very top, a blue menu bar with valuable links to move around the site.|
I now have it set that once you scroll down the page a bit you will see that blue bar follows you, and in fact presents custom options depending on where you are.
For example, if you're looking at a plant in the database Lily (Lilium 'Urandi') for example, then when you scroll down you'll notice options in the floating menubar to upload a photo, post a comment, etc.
Also, when viewing a thread the floating bar will show you an option to watch the thread.
If you're looking at an idea, it will give you a link to view other ideas by that author.
Also, I replaced the "Tree-Mail" text with a graphic of an envelope. If you have new mail, the envelope turns red.

The more I use it the more I'm liking it. I think you will all find it very convenient.
I replaced the homepage link with a button of a house. Click the house icon to go back to the homepage. Now that is convenient!

|Yes, I really like the house and the Tmail buttons and I like them on the left. And I love that the menu bar follows me down the page|

|Ok but why is the logo in the middle ?|
my old hands are trained to go to upper left
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

I have a small Mac keyboard - I don't have those keys.... at least not that I know of....
Oh, I can use arrow key with Apple key to go to top/bottom of page, but if more than one page in thread I am out of luck.

|OK, my banner is all wonky. I closed down and even restarted my computer. Still wonky banner.|
It's kinda artistically fun, broken down into sections with All Things Plants in the center. Still, not a continuous flow banner.
I simply can't get it back in its rightful place.

|Sharon, maybe it's a mac thing? The banner is in chunks for me quite often. Always is on the iPad too.|
Jun 18, 2013 1:38 PM CST
|It's never been in chunks for me before - not till right now.|

|I have the same problem, and I have a Dell, this happened once before when Dave changed something, and I had to send him a screen shot before he believed it wasn't my computer, it was his tinkering..|

|I hope the wonky banner thing gets worked out for those who have the wonky banner but I this floating bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Dave, you get for this! THANK YOU!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
