Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Forum Update - New Toolbar   Mon Mar 04, 2013 12:46 pm

So if you have been vigilant lately you may have noticed a new toolbar appearing on the site off and on. Mostly during work hours but it has been there. We have been getting it "Husky Ready". We've been testing it, tweaking small things like colors and placement, as well as dealing with logistic problems.

I'm happy to announce that the new tool should, at the time of this posting, be launched and accessible to all. You should notice it right away at the top of your screen and as you scroll down it will follow.

The goal of this new toolbar is to improve your ability to navigate the forum, as well as be informed of new developments or notifications. Notifications like PMs, Watched topics, friend requests ECT will now all be visible as soon as you connect to the forum and can be reviewed much faster and easier.

SEARCHING should now also be less complex, and we encourage everyone to use it now that it will be readily available without so much as a jump.

Sharing content on our forums will also be easier to do with all your friends.

So take the time to explore and play with it. Below I have outlined a brief and rough guide to the buttons, functions, and abilities of this new toolbar.


*************************************************************************
Functions



Left to right.



It's a Husky Thing :

Clicking it will redirect you back to the main page of It's a Husky thing!Please note the image will be different as we had not decided upon it at the time of me making this post. It will however be the first Icon on the left!





Search Box:

Acts as an "Advanced Search". Clicking on the box, typing in a keyword, and then hitting "Enter" will display the results of that search.

It is easier to use than the normal search and easier is always better.

It however does not replace search as it only searches topics TITLES.





Share Section - Clicking on any of the share section icons will share what ever Forum, Sub forum, or even thread you are currently viewing in what ever medium you selected.

The @ option on the share section will open your e-mail and attach the link.

The RSS button will show the latest RSS feed of our forum.





User Section:

If logged in will show your user name for the forum.

Clicking on your name here will give you a list of options, Like so:



View profile: which redirects to the public profile of the user

Edit profile: which redirects to the preference tab of the user profile edition

My topics: which redirects to all the topics the user has posted in

My Posts: which redirects to all the user's posts

Watched topics: which redirects to all the watched topics of the user

My Private messages: which redirects to the user's PM box.

Log out: which redirects to the log out page.


If you are not logged in the options are replaced with

Login: Log into the forum

Register: Register for the forum.





Notification Center:

This area just informs you for any of the MANY notification you could have on the forum.

friend requests
private messages
profile messages
messages in a watched topic
requests to join a group
abuses sent on the forum
new reports
when your friends log in to the forum





Arrow:

The arrow key hides the toolbar completely or reveals it if hidden.


************************************************************************

Aspects of the current Toolbar we have, the big white and blue one, are now redundant. At a later date that bar might be trimmed down to remove some of those options to stream line to forum a bit more. As of right now however all options on that toolbar will stay as they are to give people time to adjust to the new bar, or to continue to use a function they are familiar with and enjoy.

Before we remove any functionality from the forums you guys will be the first to know... We don't want to remove things you enjoy or like using unless needed. Wink

So give it a whirl and as always feedback is welcome. We aren't the most advanced site in the world but we listen to all your suggestions and we are trying to make it a better place bit by bit Smile We just don't always get to move at the fastest pace Smile

We hope it helps your surfing and we hope you enjoy!!!!

When I click on the Husky button to go back to the main page, it opens in a new tab (using Safari). Is this intentional? Not sure if I like it.
