!IMPORTANT: 🍔 New hamburger menu coming soon

no we are not offering game day meals now! lol :joy:

there is a updated hamburger menu that i will be enabling this weekend sometime. it actually isn’t that new, it’s been out since last fall - i just haven’t turned it on yet. the legacy one we are using is being phased out by the vendor this year and i do not want to be having any such changes rolled out while the CFL season is ongoing. thus now is the time. it is a much more user intuitive menu that allows users to add their own shortcuts as well as default ones. i will try to configure it to be as much like the old one as possible (it has lots of configuration and customization options from an admin perspective). i can also set it up as a drop down menu on the right side like the existing one, or a sliding side bar style on the left side that can be kept collapsed or expanded (a “sideburger” lol). the menu icon itself won’t change, just the menu and it’s contents. anyways, i will use this thread to update and help users once i enable the feature. it works in both desktop and mobile.

When I saw the title I was expecting to see Grass-fed beef as an option. :hamburger: :smile:

it will take a bit to get used to but it really improves navigation

As a woke counter revolutionary I am offended by meat eating hamburgers and think you should rename the menu to something more inclusive

Impossible Menu
Beyond Meat Menu
Gardein Menu
Veggie Burger Menu

Lots of options to make me happy I will let you choose

heh i just meant to the topic title. i won’t be changing the existing menu icon itself or adding new ones.

i know the terminology is odd, but it’s not mine. that is the standard sofware name for that style of menu icon (the horizontal lines, usually 3). it’s very common in internet apps and sites.

ok so for example, notice how in the existing hamburger drop down menu under categories it shows them all (or most). in the new menu, users are able to specify exactly which category links they have there. i’m sure most of you don’t use all of those (hello Ti-cat and Als forum fans lol). so if you mute certain categories on the home page, you can also choose to not have those category links in the menu as well.

thanks.

Thank you for the update and highlighting that it’s there.

Makes it much easier to navigate between the sub forums.

Now I’m peckish

i will probably enable it tomorrow night sometime. i will update the OP of this topic when i do and i will be online at the time to assist users.

oh yea i also stealthily added a link to the CFL schedule in the navigation bar on category and topic list pages (in desktop view only).

Well, that’s it, I’m making hamburgers tonight then.

I admit that I would steal hamburgers sitting around unattended if I could get away from it, but it would never be from those waiting to eat or from those hungry. There are no food police you know.
