    Forum menu bar change

    If nobody objects, what about changing the menu item 'EduGeek User Map' to simply 'User Map'?

    The reason behind my thinking here is that, using the v3.1.03.2 skin, EduGeek fits nicely on the 800-wide display of my Nokia N800 tablet... except for the menu which extends off the screen to the extent that the 'Logoff' item disappears.

    I suspect that this would be the case with iPod Touch, iPhone and Asus EePCs too. Perhaps other users of funny-sized displays could add their input?

    It fits on my iPhone fine. But iphone and ipod touch do a lovely thing with multi touch.

    Zooms out so it all fits on and then you just zoom into the bits you want.

    Can't see both Quick Links and Logoff on my iPOD touch. Not that I use it generally anyway. But im happy for the change to "User Map".

    Second thoughts when I actually logged into the site - it all did fit on the screen. No wonder if I never got the "Log Off" option!

    Zooming and scrolling is all well and good but I am a lazy person!

    I've never used an n800 so I don't know what it's like on there but it works lovely with multi touch.

    I'm with Sylv3r though, no objections on the change means it zooms out less.

    I agree with the change to as it would make the desktop version toolbar more compact, that and the edugeek prefix seems redundant given the omnipresent logo that says the same.

    I'd hope the Edugeek aspect of "Edugeek User Map" was implied given where we are!

    I'd say do it, if even to make more room for the next module ZH finds to play with!

    Perhaps if ZH creates a new dropdown menu called Social or something in it and puts social groups, blogs, and the user map in it?
