As you know, I upgraded the Dogs page last month. The truth is that I was never really happy with it. I don't know about you, but I didn't like having to click on a dog's picture in order to read his or her team card and see more info. Plus, opening and closing new windows all the time just seemed kind of lame.
The problem was that I didn't know how to do anything about it.
It's bugged me, though, so I decided today was the day to fix it. Twelve hours later -- and a whole bunch of messing around with HTML, Java and Blogger (none of which I really know much about) -- and I think it's fixed.
On the "New, New Dogs Page" all you should have to do is move your cursor over a dog's picture and a bigger, fuller image window will appear. For those who have "Meet The Dogs" videos, there will be a link in the bottom of the window which will open that page for viewing.
The code for doing all this is a little complicated, but it should work fine for everybody who has a current web browser, Java update, etc.
Please let me know in the comments if it works for you, and whether or not you like it. My boss is going to hammer me pretty hard for not getting anything else done today, so I hope the answer is "yes" to both!
