User Poll: WordPress Menu Bar for Skippers & Admins

Post by admin » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:06 am

Crew Manager Skippers,

A subtle change was made to your websites on 29 March 2019.

Crew Manager was setup with the WordPress menu bar hidden and a menu item added to the Skipper's menu so Skippers and those with admin privileges may access the WordPress Admin screens (e.g. Crew Manager options, Adding & Editing Users, etc.). This was done so that real estate at the top of the screen wasn't taken up, particularly on phones and small screens.

This was a trade-off to balance the users needs for easy access to the WordPress admin section while maximizing precious screen real estate. Starting 29 March 2019 a trial will be run where the WordPress menu bar will be available at the top of the screen for Skippers and Admins who are logged in. Screen images are annotated below for both phone and desktop displays showing with & without the menu bar

The trial run will last two weeks and a poll provided where you'll have the opportunity to evaluate the change and provide feedback by voting. You must create a Crew Manager forum account in order to post your vote.

The bar at the top is a useful feature and in a location that people intuitively expect. Makes sense to me. : )

Based on user input. Crew Manager has been modified to allow the Skipper to make the menu bar hidden or visible. The directions are provided in the FAQ post labeled Show or Hide WordPress Toolbar for Skippers & Admins.
