The Canvas Navigator




It’s been quiet on the blog these past few days while the finishing touches were being put on the Canvas Navigator.

This is a handy little tool that allows you to quickly view a collection of canvases, such as the Whimsy and grace trunk show — or anything else for that matter.

It works of Chrome and Safari, but not IE or Firefox.  It looks really nice on a Chrome browser on an android phone.

You can check it out here.

Anyway now that part is done, I can actually upload all the Whimsy and grace images.  Look for those beauties, and other goodies in the next few days before the Dallas show!

 Update:  the Firefox bug has been fixed!

  1. Not at all. It just means that to use the Navigator, you have to use Safari or Chrome. The canvases will always be “viewable” by default as listed hyperlinked items, either in the blog or the catablog. The problem is that not all browsers behave the same way with something called CSS, which is what was used to build the Navigator, so you have always have a regular HTML fallback, in other words, a simple option that works with everything. I have the tech team working with WordPress to find out if a fix can be made to the Navigator or their own technology for it to work on all the 4 major browsers.

  2. Does this mean, since I have Firefox, I will not be able to see your canvases? That makes me sad.
