The Joy of Top Nav

I've been playing with CSS again. There are now top navigation buttons instead of a small sidebar menu. They are a lovely shade of blue. I will add at least one more button (to an "About" page) soon. I also did this to highlight contributors' names on the sidebar.

So... what do you think?

What do you think of the top nav buttons?
I like it

Wow, the improvements are great. I'm jealous.

BTW: Genghis, your name should get top billing as contributor. It's your site, take the credit. You deserve it.

That's a Blogger thing that I have yet to work around. The tyranny of the alphabet! Uh, sort of. Or maybe not. I have no idea why it's like that.

Anybody know where Sneaky Joe Lieberman is? Some of us bloggers want to have a little more fun with him! (good, clean fun, heh..)

Site looks better all the time. One possible solution: Split the list, with yourself as Blogger in Residence and CGG, D_R, Gabe, etc. as Contributors.

Wish I coulda volunteered, BTW. Maybe later.

GC just a couple of random thoughts
1. I love the revamp of the webpage

2. The REV william Sloane Coffin was a CT resident and Yale's campus Minister for 20 years and was active poilitcally in the state and in national affiars..he recently died and would have been a good subject for a posting....he was at the center of alot of movement activity..from freedom rides in the Board of the largest peace groups in the late 60's to the trial of him and Dr. Spock for the DUffy campaign for senator here in CT...go to the net and see for yourself..he was a legend.

Students For A Democratic Society ( i was a member in the late 60's till the end) was the largest movement student group in the vietnam war era and is active once again. On 4/23/06 at Brown University they are putting on a regional conference..the first one since may be worth covering and certainly a posting..they have chapters once again troughout the country.

Coffin is someone I probably ought to know more about. I was aware of his passing, but not necessarily his CT connections. Thanks for the info.

If you can't re-order or distinguish the names, you should include something in your bio stating that you are the founder, coordinator, editor, referree, group counselor, bouncer, etc.

On the redesign - when I looked at the site earlier today using Internet Explorer, the blue "Blogger" graphics above were jumbled up on 2-3 different lines and looked really odd. I don't see the problem now from a different computer, but I don't have Explorer on this one.

Genghis Conn said...


I hopefully fixed that. If anyone else is having trouble with IE, let me know.
