Cannot filter by subcategory without visiting parent category first


(David Maxwell) #1

This is not a deal breaker as there are ways around it, but it is an annoyance. If you are on any of the latest/new/unread pages (category page as well, but I ignored that since the dropdown is kinda redundant there :stuck_out_tongue:), there is no way to filter by a sub-category unless you are in the parent category first.

So if I wanted to look just at spec, I have to select feature first, then filter by the sub-category. And I can’t get to translations without filtering by dev first.

(please feel free to move this to feature if y’all disagree)

Why not just use the hamburger menu at the upper right, click on “Categories”, then click on the subcategory you want?

Because we are creatures of habit and flock towards the biggest most noticeable dropdown :smile:

And if I want the latest/unread/new, I have to choose one of those options.
It’s still two steps.
