Thanks Martin - I'll have a play with this.

You can get rid of it with css;



In the controls.css within your theme add this to the end of the file;





/* ------------------------ GOT RID OF THE TOGGLE ON THE FRONT PAGE----------------*/

 .frameResizeToggle {

        position:absolute;

        left:0px;

        _top:68px;

        overflow:hidden;

        bottom:0px;

        display:block;

        background:#EFD177 url(images/backgrounds_h.png) repeat-x 0 -45px;

        -moz-border-radius-topright:3px;

        -webkit-border-top-right-radius:3px;

        *padding:0 1px 0px;

        padding:2px 2px 3px 2px;

        border:1px solid #CFAF4D;

        border-width:1px 1px 0 0;

        display:none;

}



.frameResizeToggle a {

        overflow:hidden;

        background:transparent url(images/controls.png) no-repeat -4px -179px;

        display:block;

        display:none;

}



I hadn't touched this since we re-branded last summer so I'd forgotten the method of submitting the theme: you zip all of the css files and name the zip with the name of your new theme - don't zip the folder - it will fail the submission

You can't hide it.

We puzzled over its purpose for a while too :-)

It is designed to help users who may be using screen magnification software (or just a very large font size in their browser)

so that the tab names are still readable.

Subject: Visually Expand Tab Area Button



Hi,



I'm a little embarrassed about this question, as I'm sure I've missed something.

On our pilot 9.1 system there is a little "up/down arrow" icon at the top left, just encroaching on the Blackboard banner bar, on the same level as the tabs.

When you hover your mouse over it, the pop up says "Visually Expand Tab Area"

When I click it, I can drag the tab area bigger, which appears to serve no purpose what-so-ever, other than giving me a blank area of screen.



Could somebody enlighten me as to what this button is meant to achieve, or even if there is a way of hiding it.



Many Thanks



Andy Raistrick
