Did you know about the network banner?
One of the features of Seed Media Group websites (that’s ScienceBlogs.com, Seedmagazine.com, and Phylotaxis.com to you) is called the network banner. It’s the thin gray strip you see at the top of your screen.
What is the network banner? What does it do?
Well, because the banner is the same across all the sites, it helps you know you’re in Seed Media country. But it’s more than just a visual marker. The network banner is updated every day with links to blog posts, magazine articles, and other features that the Seed editors think you’d enjoy. If you’re in a hurry, don’t know what you’re looking for, or want to know what tickled our fancy at Seed HQ, the network banner is a great place to start.
