Topic: Memorial Day adjustments

FYI:

Some small adjustments went up today. Sub-site navigation will be a thin bar on the left.

Area(s) still needing a fix:

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

is the horizontal navigation dropdown bar going away or are we keeping that as well as the left side new nav bar?

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Keeping that one. We'll be making more use of the new, narrow, left-hand column.

Fett_II, thanks for the feedback.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

I like the dropdown menu a lot, the plain text left navbar is kind of an eye soar on the rest of the site

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

I like the new menu, the last menu kinda blended in to much. I think that the new sidebar will make it easier for newly registered users to navigate the site.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

The way everything is now it squishes the boards up. Cause there's that drop-down menu on the left there and then a big empty space running all the way down to the bottom, which pushes the boards over to the right.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Ya. I wonder what else could be added to the left under the navbar?

Indeed, theres so much wasted space on the left and the right. Isn't there any way to expand the space here, in the middle?

Jumpy, that was the plan. smile

Miba, I hear 'ya.

McCoy, there are plans for it.

Cecilia, wasted space on the right?

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Yes, it doesn't extend all the way to the edge of the screen on the left and the right, so there's all this wasted space on both sides of the page.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

I can understand seeing the left side as wasted space, but what would fit on the right side?

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Cecilia, it's the same width as the rest of the site (as it's been for years and years). It's never been a full-screen design.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Its different and that takes getting used to for me. ( I am too  much a creature of habit these days...) But i happen to agree with Miba's comments.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

I know it's never been a full-screen design, but this is too squished. It used to be centered in the screen taking up almost the entire space. Now it's all on the right with a big black nothing to the left.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Thanks for the feedback and screenshots. Will consider a revision.

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

Ok. Now that it's been that way for a while I'm getting used to it. I just wasn't sure if that was what you were aiming for. It feels... sloppy? I'm not sure if that's the right way to describe it. But yeah, not really complaining, just showing you what it looks like from my browser (firefox).

Re: Memorial Day adjustments

It's not as noticeable from my Firefox but that's due to the size of my screen.  Although looking at it now I can definitely notice the shift of the page.
