Hello everyone!

I had never been a fan of our lengthy navigation system and decided to implement a CSS menu that expands horizontally so we can save some vertical real state

Please visit http://darksouls.wiki.fextralife.com and let me know what you think!

If the overall impressions are positive we'll be making this standard across all wikis.

I do not like this style of menu, I prefer the old ... :00006:
If possible, I would keep the old style menus in Wikis DS and DS2 in PORTUGUESE.
But if the majority prefers the new style, fine.

So far the responses are fairly positive. What do you not like about it Thiago? Is it the color scheme?

The reason to change is to make the nav bar shorter so you can find content faster. We have too many pages xD

I love it. You don't have to scroll down to find what you want. The font is larger and there are icons (to make quick ID easier once you have used it a little).

Since the majority of the replies were positive, we implemented the new navigation across all of our main hubs. I will leave it up to the individual organizers of language wikis to implement this or not.

I have also figured out how to get rid of the "home, recent changes, pages, files, members" that you could see on thetop left of the wiki.

I have added these tags
Code: Select all<div class="actions">       
<WikiIsSpaceOrganizer>
        <$WikiActions$>
</WikiIsSpaceOrganizer>
        <$WikiSearch$>
      </div>


around the "wiki actions" so only people who have accounts and are signed in will see them, making the left bar shorter for regular visitors! :cheers:
