Which menu is best?
My thoughts are that #1 looks nicer, but #2 doesn't require visitors to scroll to see the entire menu, so better UX.
Wuddya you think, fediverse?
@kev Going for #2 because of the mentioned scrollbar on #1. Also agreeing with removing the home link, if I didn't know better I'd probably be clicking your head to get back to the beginning
@kev I think we should stay focused on end-user experience and he do not care about nice icons. Usability
On my opinion ;-)
@kev I'm not sure you need to have so many links in the menu. Just an opinion. I find it a little distracting.
@piggo I thought about letting it wrap, but that then take a lot of above the fold space on mobile devices.
@piggo hmmm (thinking aloud here) maybe a media query that gets rid of the "button" layout on smaller screens...
@kev number 2 looks better to me 🤔
It looks cleaner and neater. Number 1 looks a bit more flashy, but I really like the simplicity and utility offered by no. 2 :)
@nilesh hahaha! Don't mince your words, Nilesh - say what you really think! 😂
(joking aside I appreciate the candour)
@kev I'm no designer, I can only see how things look better when they are side by side :p I find the second one to look a lot cleaner and nicer :)
@piggo yes but it pulses on page load! 😂
I've just pushed the update and the build just completed. It's MUCH better on mobile.
@kev Because no one wanted to hurt your feelings. :) I think the look is pretty and it fits your theme, it's just the scrolling that's.. horrible.
@andyc > I'm surprised you even asked
Not sure I agree - different people have different tastes. I personally don't mind horizontal scrolling. So I'm glad I asked now.
@kev You could move logo left, put search on right same line, rest of menu underneath, which would give more space to make it look nicer.
I don't like the scrollbars in the middle. Also "more this way >" is standing out in a way that triggers me. I like the buttons and icons in #1 buy #2 gets my vote.
@kev 1.5: keep the icons but wrap into multiple lines if necessary. It'll look great with horizontal centering (which it appears you already have).
@kev I actually prefer the first one visually, but the scrollbar pisses me off a lot and I don't know why.
@kev definitely number 2, you should avoid horizontal scrolling. I'd also consider removing the underline for a more modern appearance
