Annoying menu bar dropdown
Posted by Greg on Sunday, July 08, 2018 10:47 AM

I've bitten my tongue for years about this, but it's really getting to me. It has been since the last major site re-do. Ahem.

The menu bar at the top of the page, black, product info, galleries, info......... is designed to drop down at mouse passover, not needing a click. I've forgotten the techie term for this, sorry.

It drives me batty. I have to 'drive' my mouse around the bar to avoid unwanted stuff from the dropdown. I know this sounds petty as heck but I can't help that it upsets me.

If anyone is keeping a list of stuff to change someday, any chance this could be looked at?

Does this annoy anyone else or is it just me? Maybe I'm doing something wrong or stupid???

Yea, it get's me too. But I have gotten use to it. And on the few occasion's when I do pass too close to it, I turn it into a game....

( How quick can I circle it and get below it...)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Timmy, leave it to you to find humor in an annoying situation. Hats off to 'ya, bud.

Pawel, thanks for your support.

I guess I'll move on to my real life big-boy issues now. Zip it!

I agree, though I've gotten used to it.

You're doing nothing wrong or stupid.  The business analyst who wrote the requirement and the developer who implemented it did.  And if they actually had someone test it, I fault the tester for passing that feature.  It's too sensitive, and that makes the website less user-friendly. This is the kind of thing I look for, when I test applications (my profession).  Does the feature meet all of the requirements?  Does it interact well with the rest of the application?  Is it easy for the customer to use?

Of course, they might not have had someone test it, either, not in an integrated manner with the rest of the site.  Some don't.

Baron,

I know you are a software professional and I really appreciate your chiming in.

Maybe nothing will change but darn it, you made me feel better so a big hat's-off to you too, bud. Thanks!
