Old Fart here. Much easier. I often pull up someone's company to make a link. Bingo! But how about a link to the Trucking Blog title page?

Also, I'm glad you made the Trucker's Wiki easier to get to.

Love the new menu. Great job!

Hey, looks like this version might be a winner.

Errol, the very first item is "Blog" but there's no arrow next to it. I was concerned about that. I thought people might see the arrows next to the rest of the items below it and just skim right past it thinking it's a header and not a menu item.

Is that what happened ya think?

Ha ha! I'm using my desktop computer right now. Being the first word, "Blog" is covered by my cursor/Select hand when I clicked on!! I just didn't see it.

"About" and "My Profile" are not in alphabetical order. Putting "About" at the top will take care of Errol's issue, LoL.

I really like it Brett. I just now got off the road for today and had a chance to play around with it a little. The easy access to the many sub categories and sections of the forum with just one click on the arrow should make it easier for new folks in here to navigate the site.

Well done!

I think it's easy for those of us who are accustomed to something we've been using regularly for a while to not easily recognize how it might be cumbersome for someone who is just trying it for the first few times. I think this format is much more user friendly.

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

This one I could live with. Still feels... mobileish (new word, call up Merriam-Webster)... But, it works fine. I could get to certain things easily.

And for that reason, I'm... in!

New format looks great! One piece of advice... if possible, remove alphabetical formatting on CDL Training Materials tab, and make the High Road Training Program the first option; currently it is the fourth option. Gets kind of lost down there, and it's by far the most valuable online learning tool out there for obtaining your CDL permit.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Just saw it active on my phone. Can we get rid of the floating menu button. It gets hit alot when trying to enter a comment then I don't know how to get out of it. Maybe I'm missing something.

At the bottom right corner of the menu pop-up window there's an X to get out of it.
