Concept: New Sidebar

I am currently working on drafting a new, smaller and hopefully more visually pleasing, sidebar, which will be optional for use via an account checkbox. It will probably take a while. Normally I could do it in one long sitting, but I have a lot of work to do. Expect lots of Java and collapseable areas, some re-arrangement, one or two deletions, and a Java function for selecting which pending list you want to see, each being a scroll-down menu. The Links will have the number of proposals/cfjs/dovs by them, and should turn red if one is due for adminning. Open to other suggestions. Just a heads-up.

Once you have something ready for testing, I can look at it in Google Chrome (my preferred PC browser) and the iPhone

I have to say Wak, your both tech savvy and have quite an eye for finding bugs and other issues. Props

Java takes a long, long, long, long, long, long, long time to load on my computer… other than that,  for

Oh, I think JS is fine, but I dislike Java

Is it worth starting from a fresh ExpressionEngine template, while we’re at it? We always lose a lot of vertical space to the header image taking up the full width of the screen. Something with a sidebar that goes to the top might be good.

I’m not quite sure what you mean by “scroll-down menus”.

That’s easily fixed, kevan.  Er.  Tomorrow, probably.  It’s just a quick bodge in the main template. 

May look ugly, tho

@Wak: did you mean Java, or JavaScript? They’re rather different languages…

And while you’re at it, I’m sure that there’s all kinds of crunchy GNDT goodness that we can think of.

That comment said Javascript instead of [removed]. Someone’s editing comments.

I meant Javascript, and what, Yuri?

Was tired when I wrote this, but it is really somthing I am working on, just not too much, as I have little time apart from weekends.

Fixed the edit, Yuri. I wonder why it was edited.

Oh, I see…
Whenever I type [removed]FOR: It thinks I’m trying to use JS in my comments.
