So, as you can see, we have a blue toolbar on the bottom of the forum screen now. This toolbar is step 1 into integrating our home page and podcast page along with other things.

Currently the toolbar is empty, but we will add apps to it as soon as work is done on the new homepage.

Tell me if it gets annoying and I'll take it offline, but if you want to make it smaller, you can press the down arrow on the right.

Looks good, and sounds promising, keep up the good work!

Nerves, Choopy and muttonchop have seen the full toolbar with almost all of the features. If you would like to know more about it, ask them to post in this thread with their thoughts of it.

I've seen it and used it a little. Its cool some of the things on it aren't very useful but they can always be swapped out.

Yeah, I figured someone snuck in there while we had it up, But that toolbar was a copy of one that was going on the front page, is not the one made specifically for the forums.

The toolbar idea is super cool. What all will it do?

For the front page, it will be able to translate the articles and anything written into any language we decide to add to the translator and it will do it on the fly w/o the need to reload the page. It will also bring in chat/videochat (through tinychat) support. It will provide a straight link to the facebook fan page, or to the twitter talking ship and allow you to tweet about the page you are viewing w/o the need to load the twitter page amongst other neat stuff.

Toolbar was removed to not piss people off with an empty blue box at the bottom of their screen. But it will be back soon with some goodies for the forum.

I told the toolbar it was adopted and it ran away, so it will not be back until I find it.
