The toolbar options have arrived - thank you for your patience!

Most people will want to choose one of 'Fade toolbar when not in focus' or 'Fix toolbar to bottom of page'

There's not much point to use both.

iPad/iPhone users should find this version automatically fixes the problem they had before with toolbar in middle of page. The 2nd option is therefore not available to these users, as it's enabled by default and can't be disabled.

The timer for slides isn't working right yet. Please be patient!

I'm also going to fix the slideshow so the first frame doesn't load in an ugly way.

Just home after long day. What a nice surprise. Stress free browsing. Many thanks.

Jolyon,

Thank you.

I opted to 'Fade toolbar when not in focus' - unfortunately, now the Search and Options icons don't work.

Windows Vista & IE 8.

If you're using Vista you really should upgrade to IE9 (or an alternative modern browser). Many features in the future (and now - the slideshow) won't work with IE8 so it's not really officially supported on mindat any more.

I selected fade and noticed that now I no longer have access to the 'tools' option.
Not that I mind much.
Can we not have a 'fade' option that makes it totally and permanently invisible?
For info, I have windows 7 premium running latest IE on a brand new laptop.
The 'text' window on the Tbar has dropped out of sight. The close button closes and reopens within seconds.
The toolbar option remains non functional, even if I shut down and restart, so I am on permanent fade.

Your toolbar is no longer functioning.

Thanks

I cannot repeat that here - it's working fine on my Windows 7 machine with Internet Explorer 9 - Version 9.0.8112.16421 - please go to "About Internet Explorer" in the menu and let me know what version you are using.

No, because then how would you be able to open it again when you need it?

> The 'text' window on the Tbar has dropped out of sight.

It will sometimes do this, after loading a page or resizing, but should automatically repair itself within a few seconds.

> The close button closes and reopens within seconds.

Have never seen this.

Hi Jolyon,

I was on IE8, because I do not like IE9 format.
I tried IE9 just for you.
The toolbar works on IE9.

I shall now return to IE8, which is my preferred browser.

Cheers,
Eric ;)

Eric.

Then I have a solution for you!

Install this:

[code.google.com]

And it will make Mindat (and many other modern websites) work properly in IE8
