I see there is a grey menu bar and Icon now at the top of the landing page so maybe this was addressed. Certain it wasn't there b4.
Hi Kelly glad your back, hope you stay.
The Nav-bar design has been there all along, since the new forums went on-line.
In terms of changes to the look or lay-out … I have not made changes to the forums in about a month. Perhaps more. My sense of passing time is not as good as it once was. Safe to say no changes since your next to last visit.
The forums look the same on IE, Chrome & Firefox on the PC & laptop I use at home, plus Debbie's phone, which is an iPhone. That's the only stuff I have to test with. I use IE on a daily basis & Debbie uses Chrome. That way we are constantly testing with the two most common search engines.
HOOP.LA has been around since 2014, it is a professionally designed and mature platform. I'm sure it looks the same on all screens of the same dimensions & orientation, regardless of the navigation software, so long as that software is compliant with all current standards. If anyone is using software that is out of date, that's a problem on THEIR end, not Social Strata's.
I must disagree that the new forum platform is odd or unintuitive, or the navigation features lacking, in comparison to any internet venue featuring responsive programming.
I am working on a progress report.
