I did post another topic about having a div permanently on the screen on the forum but I have decided to use your sliding panel again. Works great. In the panel I have included the recent forum posts along with who is in the chat rooms. They show through an iframe which autorefreshes every 30 seconds so it is dead easy to see any replies without having to refresh the site or screen at all. Although an email can be sent on each post not all want to do that as you can quickly have a great many emails if you post a lot. I incorporated the script with ajax - script from dynamicdrive - but I will look at the one from this site shortly. Couldn't place the ajax script in the right place though without upsetting forum. Had to put it above all the code eventually but that upsets explorer with regard to font sizes etc. Still I have worked around that for now and will try again to get the script in the right position. Couldn't get the panel to work for some reason using include commands. Still it looks are works great
. Check it out:
Link to activate the menu is at the top - Auto-Check Reply Panel (F1)
Oh by the way I told you I play the guitar - here is my version of an old blues piece - Cold Comfort by Shorty Knight. 3.7Mb Windows Media file.
