Windows 7: Seven Forums Header

10 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100
Seven Forums Header

Didn't really know where to put this, so I figured off topic will do. (hopefully some Admin will come by)

I don't quite understand the header for this site... The search bar is an image that links to a search page. In terms of web development, this does not make any sense. Surely it can't be too hard to make this into a text box and make it search straight from there. I understand that you might want to keep the site looking as close to Win7 as possible, but I do not think that this would detract from the overall fell of the website. Rather, I think it would enhance it.

The other issue I have is with the logo, address bar and refresh icon. This may be slightly harder to implement but, I would be handy if you could separate the icon and the address bar (i.e. put some white space in between them) and have them still going to the home page. Also, it would be sweet if the refresh icon actually refreshed the page!

I don't know how hard these things would be to implement, but I have noticed these for a while and thought I might share... thoughts??

Try using the windows 7 v2 skin or v2 b, they both have the search bar working and it's a better looking skin IMO.

I like 'Windows 7 v2 b'.. It looks good. I never realised the search bar works on certain skins before. thanks for bringing this to my attention.
