    Default Can we add a breadcrumb trail in the footer?

    Mike,

    Our usability expert expert, Jess, wants to add a breadcrumb trail in the footer.

    Check out the attached screen shot.

    What do you think?

    Gus

    P.S. Images in the light box should open as big as possible, don't you think?

    Gus, the link didn't work?

    But yes, it is something I have been meaning to say, finally had about a 10 second chance last night with Gus! The breadcrumb trail as he calls it is so handy at the top, but usually when you have read or replied to a thread, you end up at the bottom and have to scroll back up. Let's have that option at the bottom too, would make it so much easier to navigate the forums.

    I think that it could come in handy, it might be intrusive to some but it only takes a split second to scroll on past it. Besides if anything it would be above the editor and make you aware of your location so you in fact know if your posting in the right place

    And yes the lightbox should show the images full screen, I'm about to look into that now since I noticed it was not after increasing attachment sizes in post to 600 .

    Looking good, good from here. The missing good is because there seems to an extra "reply to thread" at the end of each trail that isn't linked to anything, both top and bottom.

    Aye! Your a smart cookie, go buy a copy and get to chipping away at it I'll lead you in the right direction when you get lost. I just truly became tired of working for people without values or honor and I'll leave it at that so I decided to do this for a living... so far it's going very well and more time for my kids too so I can raise them with values and honor

    Below the breadcrumb trail, is "thread: title", and "Like" button code the same for the header and footer?

    In the footer, I'd like to remove the "Thread:" text and "Thread Title" link.

    Looks good.

    One question about the breadcrumb trail in the header...

    ... When I mouse-over the thread title and Like button, below the breadcrumb trail in the header, nothing happens.

    What happens when you mouse-over the thread title and Like button?

    In IE it works correctly most of the time, in Firefox it works correctly sometimes, if you move the mouse away, then back, then away and back etc.

    Thanks for cross checking the browsers... I always forget to do that.

    In FF, the "Like" button barely works, only if I find just the right spot on the button. The "Thread title" link, doesn't work at all, for me.

    Hey, Jess, I'm very happy you suggest this mod...keep 'em coming.
