the suggester said: "Estacado start page by *Gocom is a very nice & ellegant start page that allows you to have all your favourite websites in one place." ... you can group any amount of your bookmarks on as many pages as you like. that and the fact that you can add your own website-representing thumbnails is making this a highly flexible start page to be personalized for your very needs and preferences. in addition it's visually pleasing and can be used in many different browsers.

Estacado start page



Estacado is a start page / speeddial for web browsers. The design was inspired by Orman Clark's latest postings.

Estacado uses jQuery, CSS3 and valid XHTML. Has subtle effects, dark colors and supports newish WebKit and Gecko builds; Safari 5, Chrome and Firefox 3.6.

The package comes with instructions (Readme.txt) that explains how to add sites to it. Basically, it's just matter of writing a list of plain URLs into a text file and the script takes care of the rest.

Update 2011/03/20:
  • Now multiple URLs that share the same domain can have different thumbnails. Reoccurring URLs will be suffixed with an ordinal number.
  • Added font definitions for the search field and the button.
  • If the browser doesn't support CSS3 gradients, solid background color is used instead.

Update 2011/02/02:
  • Updated jQuery library to version 1.5.
  • Changed Favicon's link element's type value to image/png.

Update 2010/11/30:
  • Now keyboard navigation hooks to different event, and works on WebKit.
  • Resets cordinates if the page scrolls or opens in odd location.

Update 2010/11/26:
  • Fixed the small thumbnail dimensions typo in the readme, thank you informing me mattpoonani.
  • Added hash/anchor URL support. Now navigating groups appends hash/anchor to the URL, and if the page is loaded with an anchor, the particular group is shown instead of the default first one. Especially good if you are creating thumbnails and want to refresh the view, or want to bookmark the groups.
  • Added -ummm- better hover states to the buttons.

Update 2010/11/23:
  • Added keyboard navigation. Left arrow takes to previous group and right to vice versa.

I would like to change the rows from 4 thumbnails per row to 5. Which file do I need to modify to do this and where abouts in that file do I find the value that I want to change?
