Nah, just open a tab with https://sourceforge.net/, login, close, refresh forums tab and voila :)

It is still not very intuitive for new users...

Then don't use the adblocker or css files :)

I think this was a comment in reference to the possibility of switching to phpBB on sourceforge but not as a hosted app. I don't know if that would impact whether we would use sourceforge accounts or not. Do the leJOS forums use sourceforge accounts?

Hi John,
I'm pretty sure it does not. You have to register separately to use the leJOS forum... To be honest I'm not sure if this is good or bad! One thing it does mean is that we can keep track of who is registered and who is not... We can also delete/ban spamming users... I guess the other advantage is that usernames are less likely to have been used already...

EDIT: BTW, you can avoid the Log-in problem by changing Xander's code to work with only https://sourceforge.net

How about:
Code: Select all
sourceforge.net##A[id="sf_logo"][href="https://sourceforge.net"]

And for overkill (well..., not really):
Code: Select all
sourceforge.net##DIV[id="site-description"]


And what's up with the "Secret Volcano"? (Oops... it's not a secret anymore. :oops: )

Please remain where you are and wait for the MindBOARDS police to arrive to take you to the re-education camp to help you forget all about this secret forum.

(OK, that's enough off-topicness.)

This is a modification of the CSS to float the jumpbox BUT it puts a nice background image behind so it doesn't look so complicated ;)
You will need to download the attached picture and put it in the same directory as the custom stylesheet for it to work or you could change the file path in the background-image property
It should look like this
ScreenClip000004.jpg
This is what it should (hopefully) look like

Code: Select all
#jumpbox{
    position: fixed !important;
    top:10px !important;
    right:20px !important;
    background-image:url(background_jumpbox.gif);
    padding:5px !important;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-position: left top;
   }
#jumpbox fieldset{ margin-top: 0px !important }
#jumpbox + h3{
   clear:both !important;
   padding-top: 10px !important;
}

Attachments
background_jumpbox.gif
This is the file that is the background image for the jump box. It needs to be in the same directory as the custom CSS file
