UserTools has now had a bit of a makeover, and should look more like the PUG site.

As the old layout was getting a bit dated, it was thought that it would be useful to give the UserTools site a facelift.

If there are any problems with it, please let us know.

Nice graphic at the top Smiley

Looked at the "contribute" page (re perhaps forwarding GH's guide re Webalizer) but couldn't locate the "contact the team" link it refers to.

If it's there and I've missed it somehow, just put this question down to the late hour Tongue  I wasn't sure what the "Quick Links" page was offering, either, until I scrolled right down - wd it be possible to shunt the http box up the page a bit?

Looks like you guys are putting in a lot of work still, good to see the Issue Tracker has also gone live now Smiley

Regards,

Penny.

- The tutorials page says Tutorials Tutorials
- The service status box on usertools is more expanded (downwards) than on here.
- Each of the page headings could do with a <BR> after it so the page content does not start immediately below the page heading.
- on Service Status Email Updates, the first email address is shown too small (All emails will be sent from status@servicestatus.plus.com,)
- Clicking on useful links, the Home menu's selections are too far apart.
- Exchange status page content has a 10 pixel indent, and the actual entry box text is indented further still. Should all line up.
- Service Status RSS Feeds, Myplanet no longer exists.

Oversight on my part. Fixed.

It seems that the Exchange Checker is broken in IE5.5. The page is very wide and has no content in the centre part.

It renders well in Firefox 1.5 though.

It hasn't just fallen off the bottom of the page has it? I'll take a look at it if I can find a machine with IE5.5 on it,

Tks Smiley  though the link comes up (IE6 I think) middle of bar near top rather than the "right hand corner" referred to in the text.

Clicked the "contact" page and got (further down the page the middle of which is largely blank) the following:

Quote
Please fill in the values below, at which point, you message will be sent to the author of the following tool.

Contact the team.

Please be aware, that the author may not actively monitor his/her mailbox.
As such, you may find it easier to post in the PlusNet forums, or on the PlusNet forum on ADSL Guide.

Just a little surprised at the instructions Smiley  Could the PUG forums not be linked from this?

Regards,

Penny.

Content on Usertools is as it has been for the last few years. All that is changed is the template used.

Hopefully some content will get tidied up in the near future.

In IE7  this portion of text is offset to the right and overflows the RHS page margin?

Ah, yes it is located below all the left side menus. The page is about 2.5 times wider than the screen at 1024x768 and the right hand stuff (menus) is all over the place but still at the right.
