@julian said in Experimentation Roundup: At-a-Glance Navigator:
For now, we have updated the navigator so that it is affixed to the right of the topic content. In Persona, we had this navigator exposed only when the navigator itself was clicked. We've promoted the navigator from a component within that modal to one that is always visible, in the hopes that it will be more discoverable. The topic content was already limited in terms of width already, so the navigator is not taking up any additional space:
Forgot to add this to previous post, this is not the case.
The content is off centre because of the Navigator, which is different aspect to fixed width. SO while you are not losing space, you are forcing troublesome layout and so this doesn't make it right in balance, because the contents right justification for a not very strong UI element, is not, well, justified!
We're now re-creating the worst aspect of Discourse that as I mentioned only recently got some TLC to a reasonable conclusion. A site owner/admin might want full width for their content area, that use to be a simple and powerful aspect of NodeBB, is mimicking last seasons Discourse in layout terms. It's simply not a good look out.
Since I primarily navigate using keyboard and mouse this feature has almost zero use from my own user use-case behaviour, so you might say I'm biased eh.
