New Website Goodies

closeThis post was published 12 years 5 months 21 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

Over the past week or so, I’ve added some new goodies to my website. The message banners now have “close” links, so you can get rid of them manually, and the automatic fade-out has been removed. The design has been tweaked; the current link in the sidebar now has white borders and a black background, and the width is increased slightly so it overlaps the border of the content frame. This provides a more tab-like interface to the site.

Also added are jQuery tooltips (plugin from Bassistance.de). They display on all major links (like the badges and sidebar links) and the login form. Finally, I developed a settings page for the previously-hidden features for the badges. You can now officially select what badges you would like (blue, yellow, or none). The settings are saved in a cookie on your computer. I hope to add more settings some time.
