    Hi all,

    Some of you may have noticed that now when you scroll down on the site, the navbar remains stuck at the top of the screen. If this isn't the case, try clearing your browser cache (different than clearing your browser cookies), and you'll see what I mean.

    I have a couple bugs to work out with the sticky navbar, eg the Unread Post indicator not showing on most pages, but I can fix those.

    Question is, do you like the sticky navbar? Please vote and comment.

    I do. It was annoying the other way, having to go all the way back to the top just to refresh or pick another forum. I like the new way much better.

    One place where I can see it being an issue is on a screen with a small vertical pixel dimension. Unfortunately I can't set it to be sticky or not sticky based on that parameter.

    I like it. Much quicker to navigate around now. That along with the list of threads to the right make it very easy for me to get around. Thanks for all these tweaks that you're doing.

    Now, if only I can get a pink background instead of these dull whites, greys and blacks, I'd be happy. :hiding:

    I like sticky. If you put the mu-43 logo somewhere else (within the sticky bar?), the bar will remain stationary when you first scroll.

    On most websites I haven't liked it. Here, I hadn't even noticed it until you posted this thread, which is a good sign. I'm abstaining from the vote for the time being.

    I didn't notice it until I read this thread and yes, I like it. It was always a pain to have to scroll back to the top of a long post to be able to click on Active Discussions again.

    Using it on a smart phone now. Definitely handy.
