Faulty dropdown menu in toolbar

    Reposting this here as no response after three days in the Ideas forum…

    When you have a WP post on screen and you quickly want its shortlink, you hover over the name of your blog in the topmost dark grey toolbar to reveal a dropdown menu. More than halfway down is the word SHORTLINK and beside it the relevant code. In order to select this code and copy it requires you to click on the code. However because the dropdown is transparent, and the particular position of this code is directly over the banner heading of your blog, you actually click straight through to the live banner. This immediately loads the home page and you’ve lost the chosen page you had just been viewing.

    To effectively select the shortlink code, requires the most delicate of pressure *and timing* to catch it before the click activates the banner behind the dropdown! It’s a fine art, but couldn’t this tricky action be made 100% effective if the dropdown was not transparent?


    The blog I need help with is shapersofthe80s.com.


    I’m not experiencing this in any of the three browsers I’m using. What browser and version are you using?



    Hi, Firefox 9.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.5.8



    Ho, ho… Curiously, overnight the menu in question has turned opaque and the problem I describe seems to have resolved itself!

    So thanks to the ghost in the machine!



    Spoke too soon.

    Older pages are still vulnerable to a positive click on this top menu which activates the hotlink in the page behind it.
