Site update – More features

I have added some new features to the site: 

  • Live Chat
When ever we are online, you will see this image in the side bar. Clicking the image will pop up a new window and enable you to chat with us live via in a text window.  Online
If we are not online or available to chat this image will be displayed instead. To leave a measage, please use the contact tab in the menu at the top of the page. Offline
  • Weather
Down the bottom of the side bar, you can now see real time detailed weather information for both our current location and our home town Mudgee NSW.
  • Travel Counter
In the footer at the bottom of the site, I have added a counter to keep track of the time we have been travelling for.
  • Calander
The calander has a new button «-» located below the dates, clicking this will expand or colapse a list of all post made for the month of which the calander is displaying. I have also changed the entire calander script so that when clicking its features, the calander will change with out the need to refresh the entire page.
  • Photos
I replaced the random photos block in the side bar with a grid of 8 smaller random photos.
I have implimented the light box effect for all photos site wide. When clicking a photo thumb nail, the larger image will be layered on top of the current page with a fading effect. Not only do I like this effect, it also speeds up site navigation.

One of the pit falls of being on mobile broadband is having no or week signal strength in some locations. We are in a fringe area at the moment, so the connection often drops out for a minute or so
