Menu wish list

I had some issues with the menus and ultimately discovered a minor issue, with a work around, that Ben assures me will be fixed with the next update.

My request is, if possible, a 200-400 ms delay before the menu disappears if the mouse falls off the tree. Presently, when following a menu tree to a select page and the mouse falls off the tree, the whole tree disappears and the user is forced to start at the top again.

This is a very common occurrence in sites with similar menu trees. A small delay at the last open level would allow recovery of user mouse positioning and overall make Backlight driven sites much more user friendly.

Jim.

Re: Menu wish list

That would also help with the Backlight back-end too.

Re: Menu wish list

Mouseover delays are a byproduct of Javascript-powered drop-down menus, which were very prevalent in times past, when CSS-only solutions were not well supported by browsers. Such menus were heavy and overly complex, and in modern times do not scale well to mobile. These days, responsive, CSS-only solutions -- such as is used by Backlight -- are not only viable, but have become the norm, being far more flexible and easier to implement.
