Sneak preview of the new web site

I realised that we need a home page that is separate from a "demo" site. So I started on this. If I ever finish it it will become the main web site at http://monkeygtd.tiddlyspot.com/. It uses the wonderful "Presentation Mode" TiddlyWiki (soon to be called "Publisher Mode" TiddlyWiki created by Lewcid from http://tw.lewcid.org/. See my thoughts on using TiddlyWiki for authoring small web sites in this thread.

Hi Simon,

I couldn't figure out where to send feedback about MonkeyGTD, so I write here sorry.

Your tool MonkeyGTD is simply amazing, great job!

I'm sorry for writing a feedback about such a stupid matter, but it would be nice, if MonkeyGTD had a prettier star icon. I mean it hurts to look at it, because it's not symmetric, and you can make out the pixels clearly. I guess I have this geeky mental condition, and I'm really sorry for bothering you with it :) I consider this my problem, but it'd be so great if you could help!

There's a great collection of reusable icons for example here:

And I guess I could fix a nice icon as well, if it's OK.

Thanks in advance,
Andras

Andras,
first there's probably a misunderstanding how the "star" works: it's not an icon in the sense of HTML - it's a char (out of a font set). The problem with a true icon would be that it's a "graphics file" in fact, which would make it necessary to be saved somewhere: on your hard disc or on a server. That would make MonkeyGTD a bit less portable...

But you can change that char at any time (you could even tweak the size which is a bit more work - but you could). Have a look into the tiddler named "MonkeyGTDPlugin", in the beginning you see 3 pre configured star chars- you just have to change the comments ("//") and you've got another "star" char (don't forget to save & reload...).
The number codes represent the unicode char description which you could change at any time to something out of your system's installed fonts.

There have already been lots of posts regarding the star char. Have a look at these, for example:

Probably the "star section" of my MonkeyGTDPlugin tiddler might a bit helpful for others

thanks for the "configurable star"

Stuff like that normally could be found at TiddlyWikiGuides.org - unfortunately it seems to be down at the moment...

Oh, that makes a lot of sense. Should've thought about it more before asking. Thanks for the answer!
