About

Since people keep asking for a way to stick the userbar at the top of the screen, I'm working on a userscript to do so. Because of the way each site is fashioned and themed, various elements are in different places. So there are some parts that don't work "quite right" such as notifications (aka the supermulticollider), but otherwise it's pretty usable for the basic parts.

License

License? Bah. It's a userscript. I'm gonna go with everything else on this site: CC-BY-SA

Download

Feel free to download the userscript here: (for now, stay tuned to this space for updates)

Platform

Any browser that supports userscripts. That's quite a few of them, but nothing IE8 or lower.

Contact

I drachenstern am the only dev on this project right now.

Code

It's all in javascript/jQuery. I'll get it onto a repo somewhere once I'm a little happier with it, but for now, it's just being developed by me. If you want to download it and play with it, feel free to. Keep in mind I'm still trying to tune it and get it working just so

It covers up the notifications :( –  Josh Lee Feb 19 '11 at 19:46
    
@jleedev i know I have some updates I need to finish and reupload :/ ... I thought I would have had time to update it before now ... [[ damn you work and family life and a recent move demanding unboxing and such ... damn you!!! ]] –  jcolebrand Feb 21 '11 at 15:29
    
@drachenstern Why does it change the text align of the text inside hot questions, all sites and inbox on StackOverflow site? The text is centered and should be aligned to left –  Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 16:33
    
@oscar cos I broke something trivial and haven't had time to properly update the userscript. –  jcolebrand Apr 29 '11 at 17:16
    
@drachenstern Ok. Will wait until you fix it then. Great script by the way :) –  Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 17:19
    
@drachenstern it still need some fixes, like for example, when a notification bar appears at the top (when you earn a new badge, etc) it overlaps, but I added a hack to fix the center align in the inbox –  Oscar Mederos Apr 29 '11 at 20:01
    
@Oscar, I started working on that part, and trying to integrate it across all the sites, and ... it's a bit harder than it seems. You're more than welcome to email me at this nick at gmail and I'll send you what I have if you would like to contribute and help ;) ~ I'll even let you take it over if you care ;) –  jcolebrand Apr 29 '11 at 20:09

In order to properly see the scroll bar when you scroll down, there needs to be a background-color. There isn't currently one set for the toolbar, so as a result, when you scroll down, you can't really see the words. So under #custom-header, you need to add background-color:#E9E9E9. That is the color that SE has picked for the toolbar. The problem with this is that Stack Apps also has the background color for the page as E9E9E9. So I added a small border on the bottom. I used 'border-bottom': '1px solid #d0d0d0'. If you want it darker, here is a tool that will help you do that. Consider adding this into the userscript.
