    the new sowal.com

    First I have to say thank you! This is the first site I visit daily to get my news. It has replaced my newspaper and I do appreciate all the work you have done. While I am enjoying the improvements of the site... I must admit I don't like how big the ads & links to the right are.... They are taking over the message boards. Are they staying that way?

    Kurt, looks great. Thank you for the Villa's camera. I can't see it here at work, but I can't wait to see when I get home. :wub:

    I do see one issue with the new format. When looking at the Forums tab above, I can see the initial drop down list fine, however the secondary flyout that lists are being cutoff and you can only read the First words. You can see below of the screen shot I took.

    Oh no - they have you firewalled at work! Horrors!

    As for not being able to see the menu flyout - get a bigger screen. :D

    Seriously it is supposed to fly out to the left when it's close to the edge. I'll check it out. Thanks!

    Question about adding

    How does one go about adding a location / venue to Dining, Shopping, etc?
    For instance, I would like to see Scavenger's Bazaar added to Santa Rosa Beach Shopping.
    Thanks!

    I miss the trees too, but now I feel like I'm in the "jet age", oh wait, it's the "digital age"... I can't seem to keep up...:blink:
