What screen resolution do you use?
We knew it would crop the end off those on smaller screens, so time to upgrade! :D


Fits perfectly on this display, haven't checked the other one yet

Oops, no it doesn't, clips part of the Renault Rhombus.

Just hit Ctrl+- and it fits perfectly now. Makes the text a bit small for comfort though (worn-out eyes :( )

I don't know if it is possible but would it be a good idea to put a link on each of the logos its part of the forum. E.g Citroën logo links to the Citroën forum?


Not easily, and there is the issue of people with smaller screens/lower resolutions who do not see the emblems.

I have a complaint :evil:

I'm so used to the PM link (You have no new messages) being in the middle of the masthead that now I go for it and find it's not there :lol: :lol:

It's moved off to one side....

Funny how you do things so automatically and then when they move you get all confused...

I always hit the banner to return to the index, which hasn't been enabled yet.
Not hard to adjust though.

I've made a tweak which should make the image more consistant and get rid of the step along the bottom edge that people with lower resolutions may have noticed.

Paul, if you use Firefox - and likely other browsers too, you can pess CTRL++, CTRL+- and CTRL+0 to adjust the display.
Some skins have a zoom control on the infobar at the bottom right.
Might help.

I'm going to modify Andrew's original image again, and see how well it works with the emblems in their own cells so they can be links.

Good stuff.

Could you possibly change the colour of the font for the options? It appears to a dark blue/black against the new masthead's black!

IE8 with Win XP SP3.
