New Banner
« on: January 06, 2019, 02:24:59 PM »
Iím sure yíall have noticed our new banner. A huge thank you to Macabre for creating our updated design!

As part of the security fixes weíre implementing, it became necessary to change the banner (see the thread in the committee section for details about that). This is not final format, just what I could quickly upload from my iPad. McC is the real brains behind the lovely updated design and will help me with tweaking the parts of the code that need tweaking in order for the banner to be centered, etc. Hopefully the banner will be in final format by the end of this week.

Iíd love to hear any feedback and suggestions from everyone and please let me know if you are experiencing any glitches. Thanks!

I like the new banner.  It's very fresh.  And now, I wonder where to get those food icons, because I'm looking for something consistent for all 10 foods to use on some of my work/personal documents and allergy cards.

Space, I bought them online. The set included the Canadian top alllergens, and there are many icon sets that do.

For work, I am able to find many icons for free.

My thoughts: the font needs to be a tad smaller. It overwhelms. And it needs to be moved up a few pixels (and to the right a few pixels for the left-justified banner). But like RC said, we hope to center justify it.

To make the change from web to iPad to mobile, the way the code is currently, it crops from the right to adjust size. So if itís centered, it wonít actually be centered for all views. Weíre hoping to change the code this week.

I pulled from the two chief colors of our previous banner. I initially incorporated the FARE teal, but it didnít quite work.

In addition to the US top allergens, I included the additional top allergens from Canada, except for sulphites which arenít IgE-mediated anyway and also the icon was out of placeóand this was busy enough.

Oh, I asked about this above.  Repeating here.  I like the new banner but why does it revert back to the old one when I log in?

Iím guessing you need to clear your cache.

Tried that, no luck.  Interesting though, after clearing it, the home page was secure until I logged in and now it is no longer secure and it is the old banner.  Should I change something here in my profile?  I've never updated anything in it.
