New "Tools" bar added to all pages on website. Your feedback

Post by Keith Jordan »

Inspired after visiting Brain Damage earlier, I have added a new toolbar to all pages on the website to help people find popular content and to encourage people to post stuff from NPF on their Facebook and Twitter accounts to spread the word of the Floyd.

If you feel it is getting in the way a bit, you can click the button on the far right to minimise it out of the way.


Search - You can search the site from any page. It uses Google so is quite useful

Translate - You can translate pages into your language to aid your understanding of the site!

Recent Posts - This is the RSS News Feed for the site which is useful to see, especially if you are just visiting the forum and not bothering with the rest of the site!

People Online - My favourite one, you can see who is online right now and where everyone is from! When in the people online view, click on See More Stats for this Site and you will be taken to more pretty maps and things of where people are from. When on that page, there are some links near the top right (Dashboard, Readers, Maps, History ) to play with.

YouTube Videos - click to open up loads of videos in the fun video player! Move the slider to show more videos!

Share - Click to share the page you are on with other people on Facebook, Twitter and others! Help spread the word of Pink Floyd!

Facebook - Click to open up the NPF Facebook wall feed to see what people are posting and saying! Add us as a friend.

Twitter - Access to the NPF Twitter page. Add us as a friend.

Join Chat - real time chat room with audio/video feeds if you like!



So, perhaps after checking everything out, let me know what you think of the new toolbar.

It would seem it is not currently working in internet explorer 8. I do not know if it works in any other versions of internet explorer. Perhaps people wil let me know if they can see the toolbar in internet explorer and what version you are using.

Good browser to use. It seems to be working fine in Firefox, just not in that Microsoft crap.

What do you think of the toolbar? Had a go of it?

Mmm that is odd. Try holding down the CTRL button and pressing F5 to clear your cache. Do you use loads of ad blockers and things?

Not that I know of.

Tried the ctrl f5 thing...doesn't seem to have made a difference.

The maps are quite interesting although you need to develop our far eastern connections a bit more, only the one in Japan for instance. Plus two visitors who seem to be on a boat off the coast of West Africa.

Are you sure? I found one visitor from Tampere so I assumed that was you.

Would someone mind doing a screen shot so that I can see where this toolbar is supposed to be?

Maybe I'm overlooking it? :lol:

Oh! Did find "me" now too. I wasn't "showing" there first.
