[meta] new top banner is too big

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 02, 2013 at 2:25 PM

The new top banner/navigation bar is far too large for smaller screens such as on notebooks. It may look fine on large screens, but it's far too tall for my laptop. It's taking up something like 1/6th of my 15" screen. Especially since the navigation bar hovers over the page, and scrolling does not move it out of the way.

Can we make it nice and narrow again? Vertical space on wide screen displays is precious, since we have to scroll down to read, while horizontal space is plentiful.

Also the craggy sharp thing under it, I suppose meant to look like the ceiling of a cave, is pretty annoying and inelegant, as it only partially covers some of the text under it, but not all, could we ditch that?

Also, there seems to be a black button to the right, above "How to Ask" labeled Blog. There's already a link to the blog in the brown banner, why the duplicate?

Love the new Paleohacks logo though, and the colors.

Also, on the navigation bar, Topics, Blog, About Us, and Contact Us, all lead to the top page on blog.paleohacks.com. These should be fleshed out.

Thanks.

Yes, PLEASE fix it! Also, how the heck do you "Contact us"--clicking that on the bar brings you to the blog, but there's no way to contact admin except posting here. (Maybe admin prefers that???)

If an admin tries to change this and has any issues, feel free to ask for more specifics on here or ask for my email. I have a lot of experience in CSS among other things as I do this kinda stuff for work.

It's even worse on a tablet. At least that other ribbon has gone for now, that bloody thing jumped all over the screen.

Must have been subliminal or they would have straight up made a bacon banner ;)

I agree.

To whomever changed the banner:

Fix: Go to line 511 of the main css file for PH , Inside of the .header class change "position:fixed;" to "position:absolute;".

Now at least the banner will scroll away when someone scrolls down instead of eating into the user's experience with an unnecessarily large banner where 4 out of the 6 links go to the same page -_- . lol..

I agree. I like the new top banner, but it takes too much space on netbooks. It needs to thin a bit.

Banner needs to be more Paleo, lose some weight.

Just want to add agreement -- the banner totally blocks the typing window on smartphones.
