This post makes me very sad, but I have been thinking about it for a while and received a note suggesting it, but I think we have to change the forum menu running order to move the Shuttle sections down the list. They just aren't active enough for them to be where they are, but there's no way I'm merging them into one post Shuttle section.

These orbiters are our foundation. They should forever have their own sections. And we'll be looking to do some redux coverage, do more for anniversaries (like the 10 year STS-114 anniversary) and so on.

But yeah, I'm going to have to move them down the running order.

Oh, it seems too soon to demote them from their current spot. :(

Thread for your feedback!

The layout has HUGE empty left and right margins.
As in: most of the screen width goes unused.

See attached screenshot. This is on Firefox 23.0.1.

First, update to 25.0.1, second, ad-blocker ?

I'm on Firefox 25.0 now, no change.
I don't run any ad-blockers or any other FF plug-ins.

strange.
Update to FF 26, make sure you don't enable zoom (mouse wheel scroll action to easy to do..) if still an issue, please make a screenshot and post here.

I'm on Firefox-35.0 now, no change. See attached screenshot.

On Linux, I can resize a window to be wider than physical screen is.
IOW: I can experiment with making window as narrow or as wide as I want, without having to buy an extra-wide monitor.

The result of this experiment is that the horizontal layout is basically fixed:
If I widen the window, blue left/right margins grow while everything else doesn't change.
If I make window narrower and narrower, blue left/right margins disappear, and then a horizontal scrollbar appears, because the remaining layout doesn't fit in the browser window.

The screenshot shows a case of a very wide window.

Hey guys, do you have any news on this little problem?

Hit control-0 (that's a zero) and see if it goes away.

I can manually fix the layout in a page I saved to disk by doing these edits:


(1) remove width style here: replace

<div id="wrapper" style="width: 1080px">

with

<div id="wrapper">


and (2) add "width=100%" to a table: replace

<table><tbody><tr><td valign="top" width="100%">

with

<table width="100%"><tbody><tr><td valign="top" width="100%">

I think you are joking. Anyway, tried that, nothing happens.

That upcoming calendar is very useful and I didn't know about it until pagheca pointed it out.  I think that would be very helpful to have at the top of the page.  However, I don't need to see the stats at the top of the page everyday.

Same. That upcoming events calender belongs up there but not forum stats. Also the search within topic function has been great! very useful.

Well, since the calendar is now getting updated (trying!) I think it's pretty handy and having upcoming events at the bottom means no one probably sees it.  And since the calendar link was unpopulated for so long, maybe people don't know it's even active yet.  So, yes, I'd put that at the top.  I don't have an opinion about forum stats.

I concur we should make the calendar more visible.

Agree with that it isn't visible enough where it is.

Thanks for bringing back the like function! When I like a post the total number of likes is lost, I only see my own like and one other persons like, and most times that is Chris Bergin! (I guess it prints the user with the lowest userid)

I can recreate the displayed image by zooming out.  Control-0 resets the zoom to normal and thus fixes the problem for me.  I was thinking you were having that particular issue.

Apologies for the short outage just then. We're investigating it. Site back to normal now.

I was strongly against the "Like" button when first instituted, but have grown to enjoy the added dimension they entail.  I'm glad they are back.

Good work to all involved.

I actually like the re-organization of the forum index page.  Yeah, it is sad to see the STS threads moved down, but it makes sense.  And it also makes tons of sense to have moved the Curiosity forum down and incorporating it into the other unmanned probe forum.  I'm happy to see all of the unmanned spaceflight discussion moved into one area, even if it is still down the list a bit.

Works well for me!

New 'search within topic feature' is giving me only one result of very first occurrence of keyword searched. It used to give multiple results of all occurrences.

As a workaround, if you click "print" you get the full text of every page of the thread. Then you can use standard browser search within page.

Make a note of the date / time of any posts and you can quickly find them in the main thread view.

I like the calendar. I just noticed it. I'm guessing some hard working volunteers are updating it? Thank you, whoever you are...

We have a plan to replace the L2 ticker with a (looks different) ticket for the calendar to make it far more obvious and useful. The L2 ticker is too long and doesn't really reflect how good L2 is, so that's going.
