    I use a laptop and to get the number of views in each thread I had to zoom the view out, it reduced the font to pretty small but I get basically the same screen I had prior to the new system, just a smaller font

    Just updated the header with a more appropriate logo and, of course -- alligator -- background graphic that also has more blues and oranges to give you that homey feel. ; )

    I have only seen it on my phone which is most of the time and it looks great.

    It's pretty amazing how good this forum is at bitching.

    I think there should be a rule that if you're not a paying member, you're not even allowed to complain.

    No offense but you are all a bunch of whining mofos. ;)

    GO GATORS!!!

    On the front page of each section youll see several topics "pinned" or "stickied" such as the screen shot ive included. Hope this helps. (The green pins)

    Nice work on the banner, Ray.....much much better! My only question is about the "Swamp Gas" logo being so small. I'm not too crazy about that font style anyway.....but what makes it worse is when it's so small it's basically illegible.

    Take a look at it here and then at the top of the page as it appears and you'll see what I mean. I think if it was at least doubled in size it would look much better. Just my 2 cents......and thanks for all you do!

    Nice job on the header Ray. Did you have to add in Javascript or did you just add a different picture?

    I noticed that. It shrinks the logo to phone size to make room for menu items on smaller screens/resolutions and uses the tablet size as breakpoint to switch to it. It's baked into the forum software so I'll have to do some unstandard tweaking if it's possible.

    Here's how it looks on a standard desktop:

    What I did was change the background photo, whipped up a new logo, and popped 'em in place. Glad yawl like it!

    Is there an actual Gator Country app for the iPhone, or do we still have to use Tapatalk?

    Oooohhh, I just clicked on the menu bar and noticed that the swampy tree scene has been moved there...very nice touch IMO.

    I’m on mobile.

    Awesome photo and perfect as a banner.
     
  18. This is my first look-see and I'm A.O.K. with everything.

    The Jaguars had a presentation I preferred (black background) and recently had to give that up because the NFL mandated a certain similarity league-wide.

    Just curious: do I have the choice here to change the white background to black ???

    Oh thanks - I’ve never paid any attention to those little green icons. What’s the significance of a thread being “pinned”?

    They vary. Im awesome recruiting youll see probably 3-4 pinned threads listing our last couple recruiting classes, our current class and 2020 class.

    In SG they pin the board rules, i think pick 'em games...im not sure. I skip over them every time.
