Okay, I give up. Allpar is back to conventional dropdown menus. Someday I might re-explore the concept of the easy AJAX two-level dropdowns I used for a while, but people don’t like something about them. I did fiddle with the appearance of the menus, making them a bit more modern. I also got rid of the Allpar headers and replaced them with a tiny Allpar icon in the menu, which, if you let it drop down, shows some key sites. I didn’t use the little yellow arrows this time, on the assumption that people know what dropdown menus are. If you access Allpar via mobile, you’ll still see the old single buttons, they seem easier on phones. Other housekeeping tasks included dropping one…
The alteration of the Allpar headers/menus has continued, with the news section now getting the treatment, including removal of the banner, inclusion of an “allpar icon” by the menu, and use of the global menus instead of unique ones. I also modified the old mobile menus so that now you have a choice of a small number of buttons for key areas _or_ the two-step drop-down menus that few people like, but which give the maximum number of choices. I might bring those to the desktop pages, too, where they actually work better. Say goodbye to the old logos. I will be re-using the passing-lane-stripe motif soon.
