I don't like it. Change is Bad! You're probably one of those pinko commies who is in favor of ELD! /sarcasm

Looks good, I like the floating button, easier to use on the phone..

*small suggestion, instead of Menu make it Top, with the menu then displayed. Just my 2c

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Yes, I just activated the new menu and header at the top of the page. Let me know if anyone is having problems with anything. So far everything seems to be working properly.

I meant to ask about that menu button at the bottom of the page. I was going to track to see if anyone uses it or not. It makes it a lot faster and easier to jump to different sections of a long page on mobile but I don't know if anyone is using it or not. Do you guys want me to keep it or get rid of it?

Looks/works great! Much more user-friendly on my phone.

Menu button: if it's "in the way", you're not using it. That floating menu button gets you to any part of the page you're looking at with two "clicks". Best on a small screen, like on a smartphone.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the look and layout of this website when I first came here.

Being a member of several forums all over the world, I found that this site was well laid out with a cool relaxing tone. Even the mobile version is impressive with clear easy to read fonts and colors.

So kudos to the developers and their efforts.

Ok I have never used the floating menu button. Always hated it. But now I know what it does and how to get out of it. Thanks guys. That's what I get for not opening my eyes.

Thanks David!

Scott, glad to hear you have it figured out. It's a pretty neat feature, especially for phones where you have long pages with a lot of information you can jump to quickly.

So it seems the new menu system is working well. I tested all different features of the website and everything seems to be working fine with it. I dig it myself. Now I feel like people who are new to the website can find everything we have at a glance, and people who know the site pretty well already can get anywhere they like in one click now.

I'm thinking about adding one additional item called "Popular Topics" with submenus for things like "private vs company training", "choosing a company", "items to bring on the road", "leasing or owning a truck", etc.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I'm curious about one thing that is happening on my Samsung phone screen. This just started when the new menu was initiated. When I open up the site most of the screen turns blue. It seems like it is just a layer that quickly goes away, and then everything looks normal.

Is anyone else experiencing this on their phone?

Yeah, I'm gonna look at that. It's a flash of content you're seeing while the menu initiates. I should be able to get rid of that.

I think I may have just fixed that flash of blue. Are you still seeing it?
