    All,

    I have noticed that many do not use the nav bar (up top - Home | Awards | Affiliates | Banner Exchange | Calendar | Forum | Logos | Partners | Programming | Pro Review | Revenue | Tools)... and as such would like to know what services / links you would like to see there ... one will be for merchants another for awards and yet another a link to Active Topics as I see few use that tool also.

    That top navbar could be a bit more prominant. It's very easy to forget it's there! Plus, once a person has seen the page for a service, there's really no need to look again until actually ready to accept. So I'm not surprised that the stats show little usage for that row!

    As for the "Active Topics" link, it would be nice to have that one in every forum. Currently I only see it on the Forum Home page. Frankly, it's a pain to have to go all the way back to the main forum page to click it--once I'm back out there I usually find myself going down forum-by-forum instead of clicking it. I think I would use it a lot more if it was in every forum.

    active topics would be good
    maybe whos online, but less important
    adding one or both might pull more clicks up to the bar.. and maybe across to the other options too

    Banner Exchange = BE

    I think it looked better the old way. :rolleyes: But I like having the Active Topics and Who's Online links up there.

    Wait.......

    Ok I'm used to it now. I think it looks better like this. With bigger text, I no longer have to randomly click in the general area of the link until I finally hit it. I can just click and move on.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Bigger text helps but it still doesn't stand out - maybe change the background colour?

    Certainly made a difference, I can see it now, even used the scripts tools [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Remember how I used to complain how I didn't know when it was someone's birthday, it's because I never noticed the calendar link.

    Haiko,
    Here at work, the whole thing doesn't show on a single line. I see

    Active Topics :: Affiliates :: BE :: Calendar :: Home :: Merchants :: Partners :: Scripts &


    Then if I scroll down in your I-frame, i get the rest:

    Tools :: Who is On?

    I would definitely make it more noticable. I think that people don't even see the nav bar but just scroll down. Make it stand out so people can see it. I am talking about using the colors that you already have in the forums to make it more noticable. Other then that, it's fine.

    I would like to see the ABW Store link on it.

    Rik,

    Right after you posted I added the link to the BE.

    -------------

    Moomiester,

    I'll Juxtapose the colors.

    -------------

    Tom,

    It is a 767 Nav bar (less than ABW) so are you on a 880X468? :eek:

    -------------

    Alexbet,

    Store and Logos will go in the Script_tools section.

    -------------

    Breeze,

    They are all in the Scripts & Tools Section
