Mobile topnav with long category and subcategory

Wait, why does tagging cause this?


(Alan Tan) #3

Because it adds an additional dropdown. :smiley_cat:


(Jeff Atwood) #4

That’s not tagging, that is a subcategory.


(Alan Tan) #5

O opps :astonished: I’ll update the title


(Jeff Atwood) #6

There isn’t any misalignment – there simply isn’t room to display all the controls, so something has to get pushed down to the next line.

Not really clear what you are proposing here. Try entering this:

  • Very Long Category Name
    • Very Long Subcategory Name

You’re gonna have issues regardless. We do cap this with max-width and use ellipsis, that’s about all we can do…

Possibly we could change “+ New Topic” to “+ New” on mobile


(Jeff Atwood) #8

Or just + perhaps. That might be a good change if you are itching to make one @tgxworld.


(Alan Tan) #9

Not sure what the right term for it is. :smile:

I’ll look into a fix for this soon. Probably try out ellipsis.

Less words is good, if you can so changing new topic to + that does not require :mag: to click it would be awesome and generally help the front page.
