Default The top-bar Thingamabob!

In that bar at the top, where the UserCP is and Blogs are and such, would there be any possibility of having a link to the diary's up there?

Just wondering!
Thanks!

That would be awesome, it would probably bring more traffic to the diary's.

It could even work under the quicklinks tab.

I think GovTeen have that link (they did have anyway). It's a good idea though.

For the record its called a navbar (short for navigation bar).

I'd be in favor of this. The only concern would be if it makes it too cluttered but I don't think it should. And if it does 'Member Blogs' could be shorten to just 'Blogs' if it looks out of balance.

i got an idea you can shorten that to blogs and instead of putting member diaries you can just do diaries
or do what GovTeen did and have 2 navbars

Hmm... Tis a good idea.

Sorry about the late response. My power was cut off and we just got it back on a few hours ago.

Anyway, for people seeing the site on computer screens with a low resolution (like 800x600 or less) the navigation bar is very crowded as is. I'm running in safemode at the moment, so my resolution is 800x600 and the cursor can barely fit between each link.

So would it be fine with everyone if the link was added to the quick links (which needs to be revised anyway)?

I'd rather not copy someone else's idea unless it's really necessary. After all, we're really not trying to turn Virtual Teen into GovTeen ._.

I really don't think it'd get as much exposure under Quick Links. Removing 'Member' from Blogs and adding Diaries shouldn't make it much different than it is at the moment.

Hmm... I didn't think it was about exposure. However, in that case, it would get more attention in the navigation bar.

Well, that's that.

Edit:

I take it you mean for the quick links? That would be good, but like Anthony said, it wouldn't get exposure.
