User Interface Improvements on StockTickr, Blog

June 5th, 2008

A couple of months ago I implemented YUI on StockTickr (Yahoo! User Interface). The menu component is really nice and I also implemented the DataTable component which converts any HTML table to a great looking widget with sortable fields and nicely colored rows.

The menu now lets you get to any page or report from anywhere in StockTickr with a single click. Subscribers loved it immediately.

I just implemented the menu component on this blog as well. The latest posts from three select categories (automated trading, for example) automatically appear underneath the menu headings at the top of the page which is much nicer and saves a lot of room compared to listing them in the side bar like you see on a lot of blogs.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Here’s a screenshot:
