SIPBS website
with the new design of the University website going live, the majority of the SIPBS website was transferred from SPIDER over to T4. This includes all the 'static' content - home page, teaching (UG+PG), research, contact - but the dynamic/ frequently changed/ re-used/ repurposed content (staff list, news + seminars, software downloads) has remained on SPIDER until we've worked with the central webteam to get suitable dynamic systems in place.

Dynamic pages in /sipbs/ folder. Some code changes to staff.php, staffDetails.php, inc_globals, inc_functions. Updated top.php, bottom.php with new css/ js. Other scripts needed only minor changes to fit code in new template (test.php).

New images from SIPBS stocks (banner strips, smaller images) and a couple taken from stock.xchng site (royalty free, no cost images).

uLab
fixed bug in navigation display showing 'lab' link at different height to other links in non-Firefox browsers (turned out to be due to different image width in icon above the link. very odd).

Research Admin
updated admin listing to reflect changes in staff roles

updated mobile detection code to correctly identify iPad devices so that action tab shows tick boxes instead of standard double click/ drag error selection. Added wrapper code to allow Myplace users to link directly to SCRIPT on SPIDER.
