New Default Navigation

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Today we launched a new default navigation system, whereby the secondary nav (formerly called the sidenav) floats at the top right. This new default mode should play nicer on mobile and resolve many of the criticisms of the old navigation which many people considered a bit quaint. 

If you don't like this new default, don't worry, you can go back to the old ways. All you need to do is find the NavOptions nav menu and select Strip for the Secondary Nav Mode.

  • Float: Default, nav floats below the primary nav.
  • Dock: Previously called Expanded. Nav always stays open and the content is adjusted. Only for big screens.
  • Strip: Previously called Collapsed. Nav is on the side and opens on rollover.
  • Slide: Previously called Hidden. Should only be used when the Site Justification is Left or Right, and the Secondary Nav Position should be the same (Left or Right) as the Site Justification. Also, your browser should be maximized. When these conditions are true, the nav should work well, appearing only when you run the mouse to the very edge of your screen.

Note that there have been some minor aesthetic changes, particularly the indicator style. This is subject to change and also you can customize it with a theme. Also note that if you have an uberstyle or theme installed it may need some updating as underlying styles have changed.

The other big change is the SPA experiment has officially ended. I had big ambitions for the SPA functionality but unfortunately the chat just didn't get very popular. It will remain, but will reload each time you navigate around. With the removal of SPA a lot of lingering bugs and annoyances should now be gone.

If you see any bugs please let me know!

    I kind of like these smaller icons on the 2nd menu, but I think it should be on the left by default rather than on the right, as most websites have their nav bars on the left side of the screen

    By the way, what's that hidden post? How do you unhide it?

    Well, won't miss SPA here honestly. GB sounds like it can better as a hybrid between an SPA & MPA.

    As for the Chat, you could probably still give it the intended functionality using Service Workers / Web Workers.

    Thanks for this addition. I just hope the evo uberstyle will get patched with it. I hope the whole tilting shtick will work again too.
