Suggestion for Skrommel
« on: November 05, 2005, 02:38:18 AM »
you have so many wonderful utilities skrommel - might i suggest 2 things:
1) use html "anchors" on the page so that people off-site can link to a specific program entry on the page.
2) maybe have a box at top just listing all of the programs alphabetically with links to the anchors,
like

Quote
closemany, colortaskbar, doover, ....

just so that if people come to the page and know the name of the program they are looking for they can more easily locate it.

 :) The anchors are there, but an index would make things easier to find.

it would also make it easier for people to figure out the shortcut url to use when they add it to their page (i.e. by right clicking on the index list and slecting copy).

 :) A somewhat lazy solution. I'd prefer a neat column layout, but then I'd have to rearrange them for every new program.

Talking of lazy, what editor do you use to show the true layout of the index.html you use?
Now I have to keep posting it. I'm also afraid of breaking it.

How about using a large HTML table? Easy to add items then.

You could use icons/text like on the desktop to get them all neat and consistent ...

Must say I like the idea of quick links from icons at the top of the page.

an html table would work though i dont mind it at all the way it is now.

i use frontpage, but because of the php used for the ads and stuff its messed things up and so yeah you kind of have to upload to view it; installing apache with php locally could aid that.  ill see if i cant find a solution.

 :tellme: How would you handle the sorting, Carol? I'm not shure if I understand.

true, sorting would make life a little harder.

true - but surely you could write an AHK script that would do it for you ;)
