looks nice, maybe the webmaster can get off his tantrum on CSS and make it work . (;-)))

unknown says
It would also be nice to make it a stationary header under which the whole river flowed.

Winnie says
describe this stationary header :)

unknown says
the top part of the screen cantaining your new buttons and the common stream text stays on the page no matter how far you scroll thru the "river of items" or the tags

unknown says
in other words you can't scroll it off the page

unknown says
it can be done with panels

unknown says
see the way mine work

Commonly called a frame ... there are some very good reasons why frames are frowned upon ... i doubt u could get me to implement frames here, the upside is far less than the down side

Seth says
I like Winnie's page .... lots of good ideas there ... (1) i do plan to implement a button bar that has all the engredients in it that you have put there ... separate login/logout buttons ... hmm need to think about that .... welcoming the person "Winnie The Witch" ... that is a nice touch ... we coul say something like "Welcome Seth from Marketing" ... or "Welcome Winnie" should you author name be the same as your group ... and that will always be a hyper link to your group ... The long button that you have as "Click to post an item to your blog" changes to the text "Click to make your first item" after you logout or for a new visitor ... and the faq button is pretty much the way you have it

Seth says
But i had been thinking of making one rounded bar ... kind of like you see on top of the front door ... as high and wide as necessary and then have maybe rounded buttons on top of that ... i though the whole idea was to go to rounded buttons and not square ones ... what do you think ?

Winnie says
I like the stationary idea- mine work- with the areas for the river list and the main flow of the stream in separate scrolling spaces :)

Seth says
Thing is, there are about three things that will be on top of the stream: (1) a button bar ... (2) the group's blog header ... and that goes for the common stream too ... and (3) advertisement space ... ..... need to decide the sequence of those three items ... perhaps i should put up a advertisement space so that it factors into our graphic choices ... does the button bar fall on top of the advertisement space, or below it, or below the person 's blog header. One thing to bear in mind is that the person's blog header is the most important thing to them. For global tag rooms and title rooms and search rooms the blog header is replaced by information about that room.

Winnie says
I think an ad space would be best placed above and completely outside the FastBlogIt space

Winnie says
both the ad and the blog will be complete,unscattered and mor easily sorted for understanding its works that way

Winnie says
unifying and simple is nice for comprehension helps the design to be harmonious and attractive

Like that ?

Winnie says
oval allows more text than round yet it is also limited ..rounded rectangles and rectangles give the most space

Seth says
manybe oval ... i see these fixed buttons (1) ? or faq (2) Click To Post An Item (3) previous (4) next (5) login (6) logout

Winnie says
Seth......says....see on top of the front door......where is front door?

Seth says
im not really sure about 5 & 6 ... might just need one going to MyFastBlogit kind of like MyYahoo etc

Seth says
yet on the other hand would be handy to have a logout button, the login button would me thinks always to to the MyFastBlogIt page which we started here but there is a lot more that will appear there as soon as we program more features

Winnie says
How bout some symbols if you like the round and oval ones: with a mouse over as to what they are for? :)

Seth says
i frequently refer to the page you get when you type http://fastblogit.com in your address bar as "the front door" ... commonly known as the "living stream"

Seth says
with a mouse over as to what they are for?
We can do that

Seth says
The only one that we may want to keep as just text might be "Click To Post An Item" ... that is so much a part of what we are selling that religating it to a esoteric symbol might not be indicated. Actually i would like that button to really stick out .... That button is our pay dirt ... getting people to try making items is exctly the point we want to make

Seth says
Incidentally to make the round bar we need both ends, and a center ... ill make an item just for that ...

Seth says
so in case your not visiting the front door here is a link to it in my group
