The Demise of the Language Bar




Well, I suppose everything has its day. The Language translator gadget, developed by myself, Roberto, and Nitecruzr, has, for all intents and purposes, been superceded by a newer gadget - a fancy small blog intrusion, which now sits, unobtrusively, atop my Sidebar. The Translator gadget from Google.

That's the way it goes, I s'pose. I did, however, enjoy greatly, the challenge of creating the collection of Flag icons, and tweaking Nitecruzr's script, for the Translations. We had big ideas what might happen with it, and created CUMULUS blogs, to support the 'Language Bar', as we initially called it.


This is what it (my blog) looked like, and functioned properly, last week ...



This is what it (my blog) looks like, today ...



Naturally, I have to remove the gadget with all the flags. I get 404 - not founds, everytime I click a flag ...



We had a good run with it, however.

Hi Bob - I'd forgotten the three of you set up the translator bar ... but things speed ahead - that's how it goes ...

Those little icons are very small - and I struggle to read them ... so I'm sure the Google thing is there - I don't know which is which! I hope you can make them bigger ... ?!

Cheers Hilary

Alas, poor Hilary, I can't do anything with the new gadget.
