Currently, the category menu/breadcrumb bar (All categories // Latest // New (18) // Unread (7) // Top // Categories // Bookmarks) displays beneath the top bar (with the search, hamburger menu and user icon). These items (category menu/breadcrumb) disappear when scrolling down the page.
On a forum that uses Discourse, I suggested to place that in the top bar, just as the title & category of a thread is placed in the top bar when scrolling down. (They referred me here as they couldn’t change it)
It would (IMHO):
- most importantly (for me): provide an indication of where you are (even when lower on the page)
- increase discoverability
- allow you to create a new issue if you find out at the bottom that the current thread list doesn’t cover your problem
- save vertical screen space
- do stuff with one click less indeed (when not having to click on the hamburger menu)
So that it would look like this:
EDIT: Reason for me to post was the way it looks ugly on Meta - Fairphone Forum when scrolling down the category page.
