== Front page redesign ==

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but the recent redesign of the front page has caused the page to be really wide in NetSurf. (You can scroll a long way to the right.) The reason is that there is a <td width="1600"> around the "Search RISC OS Sites" bit near the top of the page. This gives the cell a fixed width of 1600 pixels. I haven't looked in any great detail, but I'd have thought a width="100%" on the table cell and maybe on the associated table would work.

Guys, there are loads of [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension_Matrix MediaWiki extensions]. If there's anything you want that would help arrange information, or be a useful interactive feature, let me know - Peter.

Er, careful.  The reason it was made 1600 was to ensure it was the whole width.  In this case, putting 100% doesn't work in Firefox.  So the change you made really isn't satisfactory, although I agree that the 1600 isn't so great either. I definitely don't want NetSurf-specific fixes :-(

I am thinking of adding a section to cover the various Distributions of RISC OS.

Since some distributions (free or paid for) include many useful third-party applications, I am also thinking of cataloguing their apps here. My article in Archive magazine 25:03 refers to this page from which you can download my summary tables of distros ePic/NutPi and RODirect. These tables will shortly be superseded by ones which include the Cloverleaf distro.
I will seek permission from the publishers of those distros and from Archive to repeat this here. Please reply with your reactions and advice. Thank you.
