I often click this sidebar (hamburger) menu button instead of the site logo (to get back to my homepage).
It makes targeting the topmost used-to-be-leftmost big header homepage link logo, more difficult.
Sidebar (hamburger) menu button is in the way of the homepage link (logo used to be leftmost icon)
Header drop down (hamburger) menu button is appropriately shown with all the other such buttons (search and user menu) (and also where it used to be, for what it’s worth)
Just a personal visual remark.
Not really troublesome when you click the (hamburger) menu button on purpose but especially annoying when you click it by mistake, as described in previous issue.
Sidebar opens/closes in a clumsy fashion, making full content scroll left to right and vice versa*
Header drop down opens/closes in an OK fashion
We have been exploring changes to our default theme that would avoid this, but rolling them out widely is tricky as we need to account for how this may break people’s existing themes. But you can take the Default (full-width) theme for a spin here on meta via the theme switcher to get a sense for where we may be headed.
We will be removing it in the near future, after some final issues with themes are sorted out.
This is helpful feedback - certainly worth us keeping an eye on and evaluating how widespread this kind of issue is for people.
