Sidebar - suggestions please!
I'm setting up a left-hand sidebar with useful links, mainly to R3-type sites (hence the brief forum closure last night).
If you don't want the sidebar to mess up your unrestricted view of the chat you can turn it OFF (I'm not sure if 'On' is the automatic default or not). Below is an image of what it will, sort of, look like.
The 'Links' block will probably be the first of more than one (two? three?) so we don't want an endless list of everyone's favourite sites, but if you can think of any obvious ones connected with 'R3-type stuff', please offer suggestions, comments below.
This is my initial list:
Radio 3 links
Schedule (day’s view) (can't link to weekly grid)
Listen Again (homepage)
Proms 2011 (coming soon)
Radio 3 old messageboards
[Any other R3 links that you use regularly?]
Andrew’s listings blog
French frank, you're a marvel!
The only additional link I could think of was to r3ok but I'll not be unhappy if that does not happen.
Many thanks for all your hard work
Oh, thank you, am51
Don't want links to every forum in existence but happy with a link to r3ok if enough people want to use it (one hopes for a reciprocal link where posssible!). The link on the FoR3 homepage won't stay for ever because we'll be wanting to remove the 'news' of the BBC MBs closure before too long. Lots of sites do offer reciprocal links but I wouldn't want to take them all up unless they are sites which R3F-ers use regularly, although links are 'good' for us. (The BBC/R3 is the one we're after, but I don't rate the chances, meanies that they are )
ff what would people think of having a link to NPR Music; excellent for jazz and pretty good on other music too [but American!]
and thanks once again ff... pretty soon you will be writing poems with sidebars threads and links innit ...

i am sure there are other European sites that have been referred to on occasion where music/arts is the name of the game ...
Excellent idea, FF.
I imagine that as it is a commercial site, you would not think of provding a link to WQXR, the New York classical music station, OR maybe to a site that lists online classical music stations? I know of one such.
I could probably create a second block with links to other broadcasters. I'm a bit cautious though - who's going to be listeing to R3? ...
er good point ff but there are delights out there!
... i just read the word 'unofficial' in the top line, might i suggest that the independent forum for R3 might be a preferable tag?
