What's going to the left of 'Talk' on the bar just below the logo? It used to totally left justified, now it's moved over enough to add another menu item...........

I think there's more room to the right of Food as well.....


[suspicious emoticon]

HecateHarshPants Sat 04-Aug-12 15:57:09

Doesn't seem any different to me.

Maybe they're messing with you wink

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 15:59:04

Entirely possible, Hec. Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you!

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 17:19:15

Interestingly, it's only that way on my humongous monitor. On my laptop it still looks the same...

fivegomadindorset Sat 04-Aug-12 17:20:23

Nothing different here.

HellenicGamesMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 04-Aug-12 18:32:27

Nowt different here, either <titchy screen>

Mebbe that's the price you pay for having a 'humongous monitor', Tee? <not at all jealous>

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 19:13:20

Could be, Hellen.

And it wasn't meant as a stealth boast. Honest. grin

Although I truly just noticed the change today and you guys have been offline a lot in the past week.....

RunYouBastardRun Sat 04-Aug-12 19:21:03

Mine's different. It's been bugging me all day. And then just now it had 'MY' instead of 'Talk' and that freaked me out <doesn't do change>

motherinferior Sat 04-Aug-12 19:22:56

Size isn't everything, you know.

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 19:23:51

So they want you to believe, motherinferior.

::taps nose::

motherinferior Sat 04-Aug-12 19:27:41

I'll have you know my monitor is small but perfectly formed.

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 19:28:37

Well, be suspicious if they tell you it's more than 6 inches.

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 19:28:59

Mine is the same Tee, but only on Chrome. On IE9 its normal.

Chrome has News & Events shuffled onto the purple line underneath the rest of the options and the submenus of all the rest run into it.

IE9 shows all the menu options on the blue line, including News & Events.

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 19:29:37

(and my monitor is bog standard)

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 19:32:42

Ah ha! I am indeed using Chrome.

But it's Chrome on my laptop as well.

But another clue!

It's a bias against Chrome!!!!

Or something...

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 19:58:20

Mines a laptop. I refuse to go back to IE though.

HellenicGamesMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 04-Aug-12 20:02:22

OK, something is definitely afoot then. We'll let Tech know if there's anyone in the Shed now the Olympics are hotting up

Have a sneaking feeling updating the nav bar was quite high up the Tech To Do list - so maybe this is some unintended byproduct of a bit of early tinkering...

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 20:06:16

Hellen, it really looks like they shifted things to the middle, or extended it in both directions, in order to add more menu items.

I think Pascha and I are just getting a preview. grin

BartletForTeamGB Sat 04-Aug-12 20:16:16

Chrome is completely normal for me.

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 20:25:06

We're special Tee! grin

Now News & Events is on the purple line its not clickable and doesn't show the submenu.

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 20:26:02

Me too, with News & Events, Pascha. Just noticed.

And I knew we were special. I mean, look at us! grin

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 20:28:04

Well, yes. Yes we are. not just that nobody else cares, oh no

RunYouBastardRun Sat 04-Aug-12 20:44:08

News and Events is wonky here too.

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 20:44:41

Ah ha! We're not so special after all. [pout]

Chrome, Run?

RunYouBastardRun Sat 04-Aug-12 20:53:12

Sorry, I did say up there^ and yes, Chrome, on a big screened laptop.

Can I be special too, please?

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 21:03:11

Sorry, Run, didn't see. Yes, you are special also. Welcome to the club!

RunYouBastardRun Sat 04-Aug-12 22:04:03


RunYouBastardRun Sat 04-Aug-12 22:04:32

<knits club beanies>

Blah diblah diblah dididdididiblahd.

Beta buddies.

Just cos you understand what all the techbuuzzwords are.



Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 22:11:04

Aw Chao sad didju wanta broken Mumsnet too?

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 22:11:12

You don't want this one Chaos. It's really annoying!!!

I hate playing for the other team.


Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 22:12:05

<wears beanie with pride>


Didn;t meant that^.

I hate feeling left out.

Tee2072 Sat 04-Aug-12 22:12:33

Ooh, beanies!

Which team is that? We have teams?

IamtheZombie Sat 04-Aug-12 22:16:45

Zombie has MN open in two windows - one in Firefox and one in Chrome. She sees absolutely no difference in the blue bar. But she only has a bog standard 15.6" laptop screen.

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 22:16:51

Run can knit you a beanie too! You can be an honorary member.

For moi?

<<flutters eyelashes>>

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 22:59:00

She's running you up a pink sparkly one with feathers in it as we speak smile

Zombie in is 15.6" too.

A Stripper's beanie?


IamtheZombie Sat 04-Aug-12 23:04:40

Burlesque, Chaos. The proper term is burlesque. grin

Pascha Sat 04-Aug-12 23:05:46

I was gonna say exotic but Burlesque is somuch better.

RunYouBastardRun Sun 05-Aug-12 08:20:12

<hands out lurid pink sparkly beanies with pompoms and other bits of shit attached>

Pascha Sun 05-Aug-12 10:51:20

Did you knit one for Hellen and Tech, Run? An especially pink and sparkly on for Tech if he fixes it?

RunYouBastardRun Sun 05-Aug-12 14:32:41

Tech's had very very special glittery hearts hanging from the pompoms and Helen's has an HG motif on the front.

Tee2072 Wed 15-Aug-12 14:30:02

It's still, broken, BTW...

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 15-Aug-12 14:31:51

Yes, sorry. Tis a particularly tricky one. <pretends she has a clue>

Tee2072 Wed 15-Aug-12 14:33:56

Oh hi Helen!

I just happened to notice it today as I was trying to look at Talk Guidelines and I noticed again that it overlaps with News & Events, which are now on a second line and not clickable!

So I thought I'd mention it again...

Tee2072 Sun 02-Sep-12 07:07:37

Sorry to bother, but it's still broken. And it's starting to make the drop down lists 'stick' in that I had to reload the site earlier so I could actually access 'Talk' as 'Blogs' submenu wouldn't go away!

That's only happened once, though.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 02-Sep-12 20:32:17

Sorry Tee. I will give someone a prod to try to find out what's happening.

Pascha Sun 02-Sep-12 20:39:14

It is getting pretty annoying. You might get a sparkly beanie as well Rowan if you get Tech to fix it...

Tee2072 Sun 02-Sep-12 20:43:19

Thanks Rowan.

It really is Pascha, isn't it?

RunYouBastardRun Sun 02-Sep-12 20:44:42

I was looking for this thread earlier because it's gone wonky again <gets knitting>

Pascha Sun 02-Sep-12 21:00:10

Anyone would think they didn't want us to explore the options contained in the blue bar. Maybe I will have to stop using all the other parts of the site. I'm already barred from seeing if there are any news and events, so I will have to assume there is nothing new happening at all and go find my entertainment elsewhere...

Tee2072 Sun 02-Sep-12 21:01:37

I am just assuming there is no news.... grin

Pascha Sun 02-Sep-12 21:05:43

But how would be know, Tee? Me you and Run could be left out of all the juicy stuff and we'd never know shock

Tee2072 Sun 02-Sep-12 21:07:04

It's true, Pascha.

TECH! Save us!!!!

RunYouBastardRun Mon 03-Sep-12 07:46:01

I bet it's something to do with in-crowds, royalty, quiches or secret groups wink

RunYouBastardRun Mon 03-Sep-12 07:47:46

Maybe we're in our own one of the above.... or we can't see half the stuff because they're busy organising us the MOST FANTASTIC surprise and they don't want to ruin it...... or ..... or....... or they're just being mean sad

Tee2072 Mon 03-Sep-12 08:56:20

I prefer to think we scare them so they've quarantined us...

I'm using Chrome and it's all OK here. Maybe MN like me better than the rest of you [sticks tongue out]

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 03-Sep-12 11:57:23

Hello. Sorry for the silence from us <shakes off holiday stupour>

Right, this is definitely an ISHOO but really quite a tricky one to fix, says Tech.

As we said downthread, we are planning some changes to the Nav Bar anyway, so, rather than fix it only to then replace it, we've decided it's probably best to wait till the new Nav Bar goes live - in a few weeks' time <crosses fingers>.

Apols to all those who are irked - hope you can bear with us a wee while longer.

Tee2072 Mon 03-Sep-12 12:12:51

Hi Helen

Thanks for the update.

Just so long as we're not missing any important news or events....


wine for Tech.

Pascha Mon 03-Sep-12 21:29:49

More wine here too.

Pascha Tue 05-Mar-13 12:08:41

Its fixed shock! It wasn't fixed last week. Only took 7 months! Thank you Tech.

cumfy Wed 06-Mar-13 00:11:49

Well spotted Tee.

Instinctively I'd been magnifying the page; just didn't look right.

Wonder if they're making space for skyscraper down the left ?
