The banner is from one of Geoff's Qiu Shi painted bottles with matching scroll from the Taipei Palace Museum.

I like each and every one equally, so was hard to pick one.

George,

A bit of a shock when I opened the Forum site to see the change; i.e., new banner.  I have no particular preference.  A changing banner is something that I can get use too.  Some I'll like, others not so much maybe.

Hi George and everyone

A bit of a shock to me too - I wasn't expecting that!
Anyway, thanks George.

Actually the bottles and the scroll section don't quite match up when you take a single slide.
I'll see if I can provide a better matching of scroll and bottles for this slide.

I don't know if it's the banner, but I can't get the whole 'page' across
on one screen, and I HATE having to shift the screen from 'left' to
'right' each time.

Hi George

Joey may be right - perhaps the Banner is too long. The whole website page does not fit on to a computer screen now.
Try a shorter banner.

Anyway, the following two photos match bottle painting with scroll section much better





if you prefer.

Is anyone else experiencing this ?  

Everything fits perfectly on my laptops small 15" screen, and of course more than enough room on my 27" external monitor ..

What size is your monitor Joey ?  How far off the page does the forum go for you to have to scroll ?

Well, I put a smaller banner up, but now I am not sure I like it..

To small and there is a large gap to the right of the banner on my 15"..  Will not accept the html code to center it..  Sad

Does it fit your screen now though Joey ?

It does if I 'cut off' everything to the left of the banner.

I don't have any problems seeing the entire banner on my 15 inch laptop screen.
Maybe something to do with a different setting on Joey's operating system?

Sorry Geoff, and all, but placing a banner does not seem to be working out..

For what ever reason placing a banner there seems makes the forum less user friendly..

No idea why Joey is having difficulties, but would rather make sure the forum is 100% user friendly..

Hi George

I had the same problem as Joey.
With the banner, the screen was not wide enough and you had to use the scroll bar underneath to see everything.
Without the banner (like now), the screen is back to showing everything without adjustment.

So I agree, best not to have it.

Hi Joey

I think your screen display settings are not set correctly.    It may not be set to optimal settings.   On my Windows PC this has been an issue for me.  I don't know how it works if you are using a MAC.

First of all, Guys...
I've got a mild case of Aspergers, so I am not a great fan of change.
I liked the old [and renewed!] look better.
And now I don't have to shift the 'scroll bar' back and forth.
So I'm a happy camper.

Pat, you are a lot more tech-savvy than me. If you had a problem, imagine
my sorry state.
Best to all,
Joey

Guys, what are you talking about?
I see no differences on the site of any sort, at least if I recall well from yesterday.

I was getting help trying to place a banner at the top of the forum.. Was having a problem with some people needing to scroll the forum from right to left because of the size..

Decided to bag it, and returned it to normal..
