Windows 10 menu fonts (sometimes others) look wrong

On many programs (some examples are VLC, VirtualBox) the menu fonts and sometimes other fonts look incomplete. here is the menu from VLC:

VLC

I won’t post the VirtualBox image, but the fonts are bad on the entire window. I’ve tried various things I’ve looked up (including substitute fonts) without any luck. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

navigation – Hamburger Menu and Nav Links combination

I think this approach is actually quite common and in some cases necessary.

For example, consider you have 10 nav links, with a mobile or tablet this is going to hard to display without in some way hiding options (unless you make them super tiny! which will introduce usability issues in itself).

Now think about how you might analyse those links, the likelihood is that you have some which are more frequently used than others (you can verify this by tracking metrics).
Or some which provide important feedback about the state of the system, which is key again for usability.

Facebook is a good example of this, the leave 5 items out of the hamburger but put everything else in it.

enter image description here

If you think about the 5 they have left out, you’ve got:

  1. The logo / home link – brand important and likely used often as the scale of the site is important and returning home avoids you getting lost.
  2. Search, again Facebook is a massive site, presumably metrics prove people do a lot of searching so it’s given a high priority.
  3. Messenger, link to an external app which can have notifications (indications of system state) attached
  4. Notifications, provides a visual indicator of system status.
  5. Account, provides an important visual indicator that I’m logged in as who I think I am, and contains important functions like being able to logout, and other security bits.

There are many other examples of hiding less important menus behind hamburgers and leaving some outside, I can’t recall loads but:

Spotify

Microsoft

enter image description here

BBC sport (the All sport menu)

As a side point, a lot of sites are using both text an a humburger menu for this kind of thing, but that’s a whole other kettle of fish.

sharepoint online – why communication site Top navigation menu disappear when activate Publishing Infrastructure

I have created a communication site and activated the Publishing Infrastructure by running this PowerShell command

Connect-SPOService -Url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com

What I am missing??

Video game main menu tab navigation mapping for PC

The tab navigation menu is very common for console video games. It is usually mapped on LB/RB buttons (Xbox).
Tab navigation in Fortnite

I wonder what would be the most intuitive mapping for PC keyboard?

8 – Additional attribute for menu link

How I can add iteprop="url" for each link () in main menu?

So, I need to get from

<a href="/node/114" data-drupal-link-system-path="node/114">Test</a>

to

<a href="/node/114" data-drupal-link-system-path="node/114" itemprop="url">Test</a>

Is it possible to do it in preprocess? I would like not to use any module for this.

menu for custom type and taxonomy at the same time or filter by type

I have two custom types (eg: Cooks and Restaurants) and both have a shared taxonomy (eg: specialty). I want a menu that pulls all the restaurants based on a specific specialty but there doesn’t appear to be a way to use appearance -> menu to add the specialty taxonomy so that it only links to restaurants but not to cooks. eg: a menu that basically does a search for one type with that taxonomy match but doesn’t also pull the other type with that taxonomy match

To be clear I can get the taxonomy with both by simply editing a menu, placing a check-mark in the taxonomy name in screen options and then adding the individual taxonomy terms… I just don’t see how to filter the results to be only a single type. I assume that I will need to do this with some code but wanted to be sure I wasn’t over-engineering it.

Is there a way that is built into WordPress that would allow this to be done or am I looking at writing some custom code/adding a plugin?
Alternately… what keywords should I have used to find an answer to this? It seems like anything that is remotely related is dealing with using a taxonomy with the same name as a type. I also looked at the title (at a minimum) of all the advanced-taxonomy-queries tagged questions when I discovered that but none seemed to be like my issue (though many were interesting in other ways).

website design – Where should the icon to the mobile menu be placed?

There’s is a lot of research around that explains the way a reader’s eyes naturally flow when reading, so you may find some of that useful. For example, you may get some insight from:

How much of that applies to a User Interface is always open to debate. Your question doesn’t specify whether you’re talking about a mobile app or just a mobile-friendly website, but one of the factors of any good user interface design is that your design doesn’t behave in a way the majority of its users don’t expect it to.

So, as you say in your post, the three most common places for the hamburger menu is top right, top left or wherever the menu appears. Because this is how most sites are doing it and therefore there is a familiarity with this approach, I would definitely ensure you adopt one of these locations. Why? Because familiarity breeds expectation, and this usually leads to a better user experience because it matches what users are expecting. Here is some further reading to back this assertion up:

I would argue that you don’t want to step away from this (a familiar approach) unless you have something that is significantly better and therefore warrants the change.

In terms of answering the more specific question of which one of the three most common locations you should adopt, without seeing your specific design it’s a bit hard to offer a definite answer. I have used both top left and top right in my web designs, and I’ve used all three in the mobile apps I’ve developed.

In a nutshell, the location is somewhat design-specifc.

Hope this helps.

php – Create a tree menu with dynamics links

enter image description here

//create a multidimensional array to hold a list of category and parent category
$category = array(
  'categories' => array(),
  'parent_cats' => array()
);

//build the array lists with data from the category table
while ($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) {
  //creates entry into categories array with current category id ie. $categories('categories')(1)
  $category('categories')($row('category_id')) = $row;
  //creates entry into parent_cats array. parent_cats array contains a list of all categories with children
  $category('parent_cats')($row('parent_id'))() = $row('category_id');
}

function buildCategory($parent, $category) {
    $html = "";
    if (isset($category('parent_cats')($parent))) {
      $html .= "<ul>n";
      foreach ($category('parent_cats')($parent) as $cat_id) {
        if (!isset($category('parent_cats')($cat_id))) {
          $html .= "<li>n  <a href='" . $category('categories')($cat_id)('category_link') . "'>" . $category('categories')($cat_id)('category_name') . "</i></a>n</li> n";
        }
        if (isset($category('parent_cats')($cat_id))) {
          $html .= "<li>n <h3> <a href='" . $category('categories')($cat_id)('category_link') . "'>" . $category('categories')($cat_id)('category_name') . "</a></h3> n";
          $html .= buildCategory($cat_id, $category);
          $html .= "</li> n";
         
        }
      }
      $html .= "</ul> n";
    }
    return $html;
  }
  ?>

How can I make dynamic links for all categories without getting data from a database, or if there is any way to make dynamic links from a database guide me.

macbook pro – How to add access to the camera to one app which doesn’t appears in the system preferences ->privacy menu?

Hi I have an app which take screenshoots from my macbook, but I didn’t give access to the camera when I installed the app, that’s why I am not able to use this app now, which has very nice tools to comment and edit the screenshoots. My question is, how can I give permissions to this app if it doesn’t appears in the menu system preferences -> privacity -> camera, how can I add this app to this section or give the camera permissions? Thanks!

enter image description here

The app is lightshot I was able to use it in another mac, where I gave the permissions when I installed it, the another problem here is that when I installed it again it didn’t ask me to give permissions maybe for some kind of history.

For more clarity, what I would like to do is to be able to show the lighshot app in the privacy -> camera section, just as in the next picture.

enter image description here

Thanks!
