Earlier this week I enhanced the "Newest Visitors" and "Who's Online" islands to display more user data and display it for a longer period of time (as the "Who's Online" box would only show users who where on in the last twenty minutes).

As such these boxes have been relocated to the main page and index pages under the central content area. The central content area on some pages displays more data so, at times, these content boxes can appear in slightly different areas, but always at the bottom of the central content area.

I explained this in the shout box but it'll be scrolling off soon so I figured I'd post here as well.

I finally hunted down the setting and the Recently Visited box will now show up to 20 users (versus the 4 it was doing before); now that I know where the setting is I can adjust it as needed.

I also modified the island a bit more as well for cleanliness (the "key" wasn't needed since some members have custom name colors and the two admin's don't have the color specified anyway).

WE'd like it better if you just said it to where we'd understand, as opposed to technical talk, It would impress us more, if you take our lack of tech' jargon into consideration. thumbup shewinks

What Diane said! LOL Please explain these things so we can understand what you are trying to do for us, as we do appreciate it all, but sometimes do not "get" it.

Well, admin's are "supposed" to be red, but I'm a blue but afgrey is red and several members have colors for their names (on posts, in the shoutbox, in the recently visited) so the "key" (or "legend") that shows (on the "recently visited" island) what the different colors are supposed to mean was incorrect since other colors are used and I figured it needed to go.

okay NOW it makes sense thumbup clap..
Bill just tried to match our color of names with our picture with in the posts,,>> IF we wanted it. He gave us the options of what we wanted. Glad he did, it looks good this way. thumbup He individualized us so we didn't look all the same, and gave his regulars "pet names",, like mine is "a gnomes best friend" Lynne's is Purl one, because she knits, Carols is Frogger because she came to love frogs, just a special touch he wanted to do appreciating his regular members shewinks.
Thanks for 'splaning' it,, I appreciate it! grin
