There’s also some bug reports / further feedback regarding some changes to the header found here:

Adding this here to keep everything centralized.

There was a recent change put in that I don’t like on mobile. I used to be able to touch the button on the top right to go to the author dashboard. Now it drops the menu down as if you were hovering over it. This change adds an extra click to something I do multiple times a day on my phone. Please advise…

You’re right, there was a change there last week, for exactly the reason you’ve pointed out — other users reported that the drop-down user menu wasn’t available on touch devices that don’t have a hover state.

I agree we’ve definitely made it harder for you to get to the dashboard, but we’ve also made it much easier for users to access other pages from that menu on touch devices.

Any thoughts on how we could better serve both needs?

It’s still two taps, but I’m wondering… Is it less painful for you when you’re on the hub (where the whole header is responsive, with bigger touch-targets and off-canvas menus)?

So before they had to touch it, then touch the tab they wanted (2 times). Now they have to touch it, then touch a menu item (2 times). Where’s the improvement???

a whole site load less, which can take some time via mobile

Hi folks, thanks for your patience.

We’ve just pushed out a few minor updates:

  1. We’ve darkened on the other seven site logos, to reduce the visual noise a little and further emphasise the current site.
  2. We’ve increased the contrast of the icons in the user drop-down menu.
  3. We’ve updated the hub to pre-select the referring site from the search select box (if you came from VideoHive to the hub, the search box will be set-up to search VideoHive, not the first site in the list, which could disrupt your flow). This isn’t perfect yet (the referrer is dropped if you’re routed through single sign-on), but it’s an improvement in many cases and we’ll tackle single sign-on soon.

More to come early next year.
