Apologies for a topic that will be a little scattergun, but it’s hard to know if it’s worth splitting this up. On the Drowned in Sound forum a number of users have issues with the new ‘slide-in’ menus and the issues do not seem to be specific to a given phone or browser - iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy J3 and S6 and Google Pixel 1, 2 and 3.
The issue is that the menus are sliding out when the users are trying to do other things on the site.
One user tends to use swipe back to go back a web page and in the last couple of weeks they’ve found this keeps pulling out the menu instead, so I wondered if someone has tweaked the ‘hot area’? This is on iPhone which I presume means it’s a standard iPhone gesture as I can’t seem to do this at all on my Android.
Other users find they are calling in the left swipe menu when they attempt to like posts. I don’t have this issue and it seems like for many users it can be when they are using the phone one-handed so I guess there is an effect.
Trying to hit the quote post button has also ended up pulling it in.
I don’t know if others have seen this. I just wondered if there is any possibility of offering the chance to use the old system. Part of the above makes me wonder if this sliding menu system might impact accessibility more which is why I wondered if it is a consideration?
