Hi Limneos,

Thanks for the reply. As you can see from the image, some of the information is obscured. I understand that you are not yet privy to the contents of the Staff Lounge so you have probably set the vertical height accordingly, but as you can see this is partially hidden by my avatar and the Google and Forum links. Also, at the top, the gadget logo does hide the names of the latest posts in the top 3 listed sub-forums, particularly General Discussion.

Just a suggestion, since it is a large gadget - would it be possible to arrange for it to auto-hide until you hover over the gadget emblem?

Hello Dwarf!

First of all, thanks for the feedback.

1. The autohide for the logo sounds really good, or I could just give a 20% transparency and when you hover you can see it 100%.

2. As for the extra forums that you see as a privilege member, I have set the gadget to a standard height according to what most users see. However, you can change the height of the gadget so that the extra forums don't get covered by your avatar etc. using this guide I posted for Airbot -> https://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...html#post48709

3. I don't understand why you don't see the images of the forums, and you see emtpy squares instead. Can you please login to this page: http://www.kcs.gr/gadgets/users.php and tell me if you the images? Thank you.

4. I think autohiding the whole gadget is not possible,or at least it won't work as expected when you restore it, but I'll look it up.

Edit: I'm currently working on the ability to customize the height, login info etc from the settings dialog, so you won't need to do any extra modifications.

hmm...

ok, so let me get this straight:

1. You're using firefox as the default browser , so the gadget uses that browser too, but it doesn't display the images in the gadget.
2. However, if you login directly to the page from firefox , you do see the images?

Thanks, Limneos. I have checked the link you gave in point 3, and logging in, both as a guest and as me, I can see the icons. However, when displayed as a desktop gadget, I cannot see the icons when logged in as myself, but I CAN see them when logged in as a guest As regards the gadget height, I shall have a play around with the metrics (your point 2) when I have more time.

Sorry, but no change. I will have a play with the metrics tomorrow to see if that makes any difference.
