I think it would be interesting to parse the phpbb.com access logs and see how many invocations of the https://www.phpbb.com/about/features/
URL are immediately followed by invocation of a URL from the "Quick links" menu. (e.g. search.php?search_id=unreadposts
, etc.) Because the Quick Link menu is what the phpbb.com visitor was actually trying to access.
It happens because the "click required" nature of Quick Links and the "hover action" of the "About" menu right above it conspire for me to review the phpBB Features list about once a day, if not more.
i.e. You move your mouse and click on the coordinates for where the "Quick Links" menu should be, but while doing that you accidentally made an incursion into the airspace of the "About" menu, and so by the time you actually click on the "Quick Link" coordinates, the "Features" item has been rendered on the fly-out menu under your mouse.
Not sure what the best mitigation would be. Don't mix hover menus with click menus side-by-side like that? i.e. Make "About" require a click, just like "Quick Links" requires a click. Giving greater distance of course would help, but moving the "About" menu items to the right would perhaps look odd. Moving the entire "hover" menu up to the top of the banner image instead of along the bottom edge, maybe?
Anyway, kept thinking I should mention it since it happens to me all the time. There, now I've mentioned it.
