Hi everyone;
I made a file that is good for new SS users, what it does is, add a floating div (topLeft) to your project with List of Useful links, Debug links & custom Google search.

All you have to do is:
1- add the file in themes/MyTheme/Templates/Includes
2- in themes/MyTheme/Templates/Page.ss , just under the <body> tag, add this:
%< include DevMode %>

3- DO a ?flush=all to your URL

I use it alot (for every project), it save me alot of time.. so Have fun & let me know of anything can be added to it.

Mikel.

TY, i am also working on a JQueryGallery , it will be a Gallery + plugins, so each JQueryPlugin function as a "Mini Module" Then the Main module will manage the Images , now i have it working with NivoSlider, CodaSlider, LightBox & FancyBox ( one gallery, a drop down to select a JQueryPlugin to use )

Working on it with the guys on the IRC .... hope i can get it Uploaded before next year !!.. wish me luck .
