The right nav bar?

Postby Corvin » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:54 am

Does the file section of the right nav bar work for you guys?

or

Should I simply place all the file linked pages under each game?

Like all src-jfswarrior-XXXX links under the Shadow Warrior Game header, etc....?
I'm seriously thinking of combining those links under each game appropriately, there would be no separation of src links and the other downloads per game, except a blank line.

Both, it does work, but shorten it would make it better.

hmmm shorter?
Wouldn't you prefer to click once to get to the page you want, or several pages to get where you want?

I could combine hot links and quick links together, ultimately removing on of those divisions.
Besides that I'm not sure. I was going to add some more graphics in it too, I guess I will not do that now.

Is it really all that unnecessary long?

I'm just giving my opinion.
It might be simpler to only see the game (with it's logo), and then a fly-out to all relevant links and pages, once you hover or click on it (game logo).

Yet, as it is right now, it works for me also. ;)

I know it is your opinion. its important though.

I know what you mean, but that would mean making the site with javascript or flash or something. I'm not educated enough on those as I abandoned those ideas early on.
But we did have for about a week a great and awesome menu that stored away to the right until you moved over one pixel and it poped out.
Unfortunately it slowed down any updates too the site as I had no idea how to use code in the menu to add new addition in. E-mails to the web designer where delayed on getting things done as well.

It would probably be nicer and easier today. But I'm not willing to make pop out menus because I'd have to spend so much more time on the site and too much learning that I might not even be capable of.

But I value your input Hank. I may still list the related downloads under the game logos as it is. But the universal stuff I'll leave separate.

I have not done much for shortening the nav bar yet. Not sure I can really. Its just too cool to jump to all those locations with a single click, if I shorten it, then well be click 2 to 3 times blindly.
Plus I don't want to duplicate a link more than once in special cases.

Does anyone want to maintain a Official Gateway to RTCM off server? Maybe that would be nice to have, like I use to have a Gateway, but I hated maintaining it to tell you the truth.
It was a well organized site map, more like a nav bar but spread out horizontally. I might still have it on my first back up of the site on CD or Floppy. Probably transferred to DVD already though.
If I can't find it I can recreate something like it if it needs be.

eh, sorry. lost interest in the right nav bar format change. I added in graphical headers for each section of the files, But It was just nonsense. So I decided against it.
