How Full is Your PaB?

One of the suggestions that have come up for iPaB has been some type of indicator of how full a wall container is... I think way back when I started this project, I had a similar idea -- not only would I like to know what parts are on the PaB wall, but how plentiful are they.  So I looked for a 'progress bar' example in CSS, found it simple enough to implement on a web page; added a field to the database, updated the form, did a little testing and voilĂ !  By indicating 'near full', you see the a bar like (6,1); 'near empty' will be like (5,1); 'quarter full' will be like '(6,2); 'half full' the bar will be like (6,3); and 'three quarters full' will be like (6,4).  I might work on touch up the graphic a little, but let me know what you think.  Hopefully you'll find is useful.

In the mean time, I've added two new stores, Brighton, UK and Milton Keynes, UK.

this is neat but some of the stores are not accurate. the northbrook, il store and the chicago, il store are two that i know are wrong. the northbrook wall is much smaller than what you have and the chicago stores wall is much larger.

Liz, thanks for the feedback. Next time you're in the stores, please let me know wall sizes so I can get it correctly on the web-site. Thanks!
