    Thanks for the share, Cyril. I'll check them out.
    Also, I think you might have too many links as for why it won't display that one right. Don't quote me on this though.

    Yeah, that seems like a good idea too.
    And clean up those empty empty sections, unless you need them so you can add them later.
