iPad menu issue

Postby VideoGameCritic » November 22nd, 2014, 6:25 pm

I was looking at the site on an ipad and noticed the "Discussion" menu option on the home page had wrapped around under the "Home" menu.  That looked like crap.

To fix this I shortened the menu name to "Discuss" (on the main page only).  Sadly I do not own an ipad so I can't test it.   Maybe someone with an ipad can take a look to see if this  fixed the problem.  Thanks.

The problem is fixed on the main page, but it looks like all the other pages still say "Discussion."

Hey Dave,

Yeah, it works, and it's all on one line. And that's so much better; I can't tell you how often I hit "discussion" and ended up hitting "home" instead.

Actually that's OK because it was only on the home page where "discussion" ended up being right below "home". On any of the other pages "discussion" is on the far right of the page where it should be.

Great!  Thanks for the feedback!
I figure Discuss and Discussion are pretty much interchangeable.
The home page has a search field that tends to crowd the menu.

That's not how it is for me. On all the other pages Discussion is still under the Home tab.

Looking at the other pages, I'm not sure why "discussion" is pushed down to the second line considering that there seems to be plenty of room on the top line.

I shortened it to "Discuss" on the other pages.  
Let me know if this fixes the problem!
Thanks

The only part of the site that still seems to have the problem is the forums. Everything else looks great.

Okay, I shortened the menu item to "Discuss" on the forums and also the article pages.

This should completely eliminate the problem.  

If you see any other aberrations like this on ANY device, do not hesitate to report!  I am a perfectionist!
