The Menu Manager


The new Menu Manager. Future features may or may not include "Widget Menus".
The permissions system is fairly basic on them, but we'll likely change it to a more "group-based" one to give you that extra degree of flexibility that you love.

There will also be some drop-downs for you to select a page or a forum, or you could just manually type in a URL.

There are quite a bit of options included in the menu manager. :) I like it. In fact, I think it
would encourage many people to consider an AtomBB forum over a blog-based software such as WP.
On a side-note, the navbar should move down the page as you scroll down (unfortunately, Chrome hasn't implemented the functionality needed for this yet), and there's a 3D effect when you hover over the navbar.

Neither has IE, apparently.
IE is usually fairly far behind when it comes to HTML5 / CSS3 features, so that's not really a surprise, although it has made a fair bit of progress.
We don't need to worry about IE anymore. Microsoft has officially given up on it, so there's no
longer a reason to make sites work with that browser. :D

Unless you like to support people using old browsers <3
IE8 only really has 20% of the browser market, and it's only going to continue to decline.
I'd imagine that a large majority of this are people in corporations, who quite frankly.. Probably
don't really care about modern features and enhancements. CSS3 isn't going to make their jobs
easier.
It's declined dramatically to.. More modern browsers, including later versions of IE.

As for IE overall, while it might have half of the browser market in it's grip, a large percentage
seem to be on later versions of it, especially after Windows XP was EOLed, so that would be 10 and
11 which are actually fairly decent.. Feature-wise.
Unfortunately, I can't get IE11 to stay open on Win8.1 for longer than a minute due to it constantly
freezing, but IE works fine on Windows 7, so I'll just blame Win8.1 here.

Unfortunately, Microsoft has a habit of dropping versions of IE between OS versions, and if their
"marketplace" in Windows 10 doesn't take off (and it probably won't, let's be realistic here) then,
I wouldn't put it past them having Windows 11 and onwards as paid upgrades.

Quite frankly though, if you want to have the latest enhancements then, you get the latest browser.
Even if you're on a legacy version of Windows, there are options like Firefox or Chrome out there.

The sites aren't going to magically stop working, if you lose some fancy effects like CSS Animations
or position: sticky, but trying to backport functionality takes time, makes the pages slower, uses
more bandwidth, and quite frankly.. If people want the latest in website technology then, they
should use the latest in browser technology.

I for one don't expect the newest and most intensive games to work on an i3 laptop, so why would I
expect the most modern extra effects on a website to work on an ancient browser?
