The new Navigation Bar (at t'top): the "official" thread

(324 Posts)

Hello. There are ruddy millions quite a few threads in Site Stuff at the mo about changes/glitches/weirdy stuff related to the release of our new Navigation Bar (the big blue bar at the top of the page that helps you find all the various bits of Mumsnet).

So, for clarity's (and sanity's) sake, we're starting this thread to keep everything in one place - and have just one thread where you tell us what's not working for you and where we update you on what we've fixed/are fixing etc etc.

Right then...

A couple of quick answers/updates for you right now:

* The PM Inbox flag/blog/"you've got a PM" icon is now back. Apols for having inadvertently made it disappear.

* The jumpiness/flickiness of the Nav Bar in general: we're working on sorting this now - and hope to have a fix released by tomorrow.

* MyMumsnet: this will reappear on the Nav Bar at some point in the next three days or so. In the meantime, you can find MyMumsnet here.

* Keep me logged in. We're looking into this - and will update you soon.

Any more Qs/probs/moans/peans of praise (hopeful), do please post them here.

That sounds like a post of desperation!

Does it? Oh dear blush

(Actually not feeling desperate at all; just come back from my hols, so really quite chilled and jolly).

Yes Kansas, the Work one, and the Pregnancy one, and the one of the woman shaving her face? The pregnancy one jumps out at you if you venture too far from the Chat one.

get rid of the stupid gurning pictures, they're annoying and horrible.

Aw, we're sorry you don't like them. We're going to let them "bed in" for a bit because we think that, once folks stop clicking on them by accident (because of the jumpiness glitch - see our OP), they'll be significantly less annoying.

But they're not set in stone. We can change 'em, and may well regularly update them as time goes on.

Thank you for bringing the envelope back - although, currently, it's disappointingly grey grin

I genuinely feel the ticked "keep me logged in" button is the most serious issue. I feel this has probably security implications for vulnerable posters and should be an urgent matter.

In fact I'm considering starting an AIBU about it, to get the opinions of all those who don't use site stuff.

I hope you had a good holiday, btw smile

We hear you, Maryz, we promise. We're just trying to get to the bottom of various related stuff first. We'll update you as soon as we can.

Aw Helen, thanks for the PM - all lovely and yellow and red blobby!

I like Spaghetti Dog - I want him to stay!

LaRegina Wed 05-Jun-13 11:09:30

Please can you get rid of the spaghetti dog? It's putting me off my food sad.

Everybody was in agreement about it on my huge 'AIBU re spaghetti dog' thread recently...

Ok everybody apart from spiderlight grin

Jux Wed 05-Jun-13 11:10:06

Spaghetti Dog is the only one I like!

Perhaps if all the rest were cats ......?

Um - why can't we use humans for human food and human clothes?

LaRegina Wed 05-Jun-13 11:14:47

Or maybe a man rolling around in alphabetti spaghetti for the pets section?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Jun-13 11:17:24


Oh, good idea. You could have a very stylish Siamese for S&B. And luffly kittens and puppies for baby and child.
