exactly - sorry for the confusion - i couldn't logon to the ftp server yet but as soon as I can it will be at that address - also, when it is fully updated, I will include a link to the latest downloadable .tgz (or .pet) version (using local images) in the favorites menu for those wishing to use it in their remaster.

Thanks for the resources- I'll add them to the Q

which brings up a side note - I keep adding apps, some of which I have never personally used, so if any of them provide no real added value or it starts to get too bloated let me know that as well

As I understand it, the FTP's URL should be ftp.servage.net, login technosaurus, password (see my PM).

I have no FTP service here now, but should be able to test it this evening not later than GMT12:00.

its already posted - I didn't have ftp access till I got home either. Anyhow many thanks Raffy (PMed ya btw)

I'm currently working on search boxes from the sites everyone has suggested. I have them working - just trying to keep the look of a desktop instead of a web page.

Next step is to add sites from all of these lists of web apps while trying to stay under 10 per category - may need to split some categories or add some new ones so we don't get any more "tails" (I guess I've got it looking so much like a desktop people forget they have scroll bars)

Way back on the back burner is finding a decent looking background with a smaller file size to speed up the load times (any suggestions?)

Thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions - your input has allowed us to have the best web apps (or "rich internet applications") collection around as far as I can tell. Virtually every link on the web page came from another member of our community in some way, shape or form. I appreciate the patience everyone has had while I have done all of my tweaking and renaming etc... Thanks to Raffy, http://pupweb.org/desktop/ will be its new and hopefully permanent home and you won't have to suffer through testing some of my extremely bad ideas (only the really bad ones)

Sub_title: Fantastic!
 

THANKS TECHNO!! Very Happy

And that's not meant as the "net yelling" but as a real "Congrats" for a hard job so very well done and excellently crafted!

It's now in the top bookmark bar of my SeaMonkey/Firefox for that I can reach it with one click (from all my other distros) and in Puppy proper it'll be the homepage of my browsers there. Just such a fabulous wealth of material and apps!

Incredible! For once I'm speechless. Some here will realise how impossible that is. LOL!

Amicalement/Cheers!

Lobster - thanks for the reminder - I tried that one before when I was using white lettering and couldn't see the text in places - it should work now.

I just finished editing the mouseover descriptions to be a bit more concise - thought it might reduce the size more than it did
I also added the klu9, wellminded and google/linux search boxes
Moved Puppy programs to the bottom to make room for the search boxes

i am currently prepping new app sections
games - Yahoo Games...
todo - webeditors - google page creator etc..

favorites sections:
todo - library - gutenberg, wikibooks, internet archive, google books

added previously requested searches+

updated icons for the web version

and using these additional sites as a reference for more web apps

I've already found a bunch of search box codes including metacrawler, excite, ask jeeves, DMOZ... - the issue is getting them to look ok

I am trying to get all the different google searches to use one box and radio buttons and kind look like a widget using a table with a translucent background. This should make room for other searches on the top.

I like to do a bottom bar also, but the only way I know how is to use frames and that cuts off the dropdown menus. Maybe I'll stumble upon some nice code snippet soon for this.

PostPosted: Tue 26 Aug 2008, 11:38    Post_subject: v1.0 - Start Menu, favorites, icons searches & widgets done
Sub_title: Maintennance & beautification from here out - hopefully
 

I created a single dropdown menu for the google search to choose the site you wish to search - I was trying to emulate a widget here, but I'm even more rusty on graphics than I was at html when I started making this site - so it may take me a bit to make the google "widget" look pretty. Also since this performs the same function of several of the other requested searches - they were replaced with "ask" and "webcrawler"
I also added flowcharts and games to the desktop and did some tweeking under the hood and some code fixes. Other than that I am happy with the interface for now and plan to mainly maintain and expand updated web apps from here. (Note that I have purposely left an icon space for use in puplets)

It looks like this doesn't work in vanilla opera.
I'm using 9.51 in Muppy-084. The application menus disappear as soon as I move the mouse off the category text.
If I do it very quickly it works. I suspect there is a small gap in between the category and the menu which means that the hover is disabled moving between the two.

Hairy
Thanks for the report.
I had this working before I thought - I will see what I can do though I think I have a copy of Pupeez somewhere so I can test with Opera. I suspect its something in the CSS section, but may just as easily be fixed with align right vs. center or left (however it is that I have it now?)
