Be careful about setting sidebar as fixed

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://heartpainter.com/

Discovered a major mistake I'd made in redoing my heartpainter site. Might save someone else some trouble. I'm using Wells, so navigation is in the left sidebar.

I had thought it would be convenient for viewers if I set the navigation sidebar as fixed, so they could hop to another page after they'd scrolled down a bit. Works great on desktop.

On tablet, it made it impossible to scroll down the navigation to see some of the secondary nav. Even worse, it caused trouble with turning the tablet view from vertical to landscape. Totally wrecked the page. (Text overlapping, no images, just a mess.) Using the back button restored the proper landscape view, but still...awful!

Simple fix was to uncheck the sidebar as fixed. Hope this keeps someone else from making this mistake.
