Feedback on small change to goals and progress bars

Hi,

I've made a small change to our blog's goals and progress measures. I really didn't like the unattractive chart / icon from networthiq (which I've moved down the page) and wanted to show progress on more issues than just my networth.

Let me know what you think of the bars and how they look on your web browser. I'm using ie 6. I'm especially curious of the numbers on the x axis show clearly.

Also, let me know if there are any additional progress meters I should add.

Does anyone have any idea on how to pack the meters closer together?

Please give feedback.

Thank you.

Regards,

Hi There,

I'm using Safari, and your progress bars look great and they are close together. Also, no problems with reading the numbers on the x-axis.

For the items in your sidebar starting with the sitemeter, everything is pushed to the far left and doesn't have space between the edge of the window and the words (like the things above). A way to fix that is to use <#ul> (but take out the " # ") at the beginning of the section that you would like "indented" a little and then put <#/ul>(but take out the " # ") at the end.

I don't see an email to contact you, but I'll try to check back (I say try because I have a horrible memory) to see if you have questions on what I wrote or maybe if you have a question on how to do something with your template.

All the best to you with your financial goals! :)

tricia,
thanks for the great advice. I'll have to experiment with the <#ul> in the template.
