    Sorry for my poor english. Hope you guys know what I mean here.

    initial my theme the menu will " drop "

    for an example while visitor come to surf my site and scroll down, the menu bar will collapse , drop too

    but I don't like and ask the support " edit the code "

    make the menu static ,

    that means while the visitor surf the site, the menu bar will not " drop " as he/she scroll down

    I happen to see quite a lot establish site actually using " drop menu "

    thus I don't know should I ask my theme support change back make my menu drop ?

    wonder does it make a difference on visitors point of view?

    Hope you guys know what i mean here.

    I don't know what other people would think about that, but I personally hate those.

    They're fine for the most part on desktop sites, but on mobile sites they can become intrusive, especially for user's browsing in landscape mode. A mobile screen is already significantly smaller than a computer monitor, so pissing away precious screen real estate on a floating menu bar and making it even more difficult to use the site only serves to agitate me further.

    that why, initial my theme the menu is " floating menu " I go setting can't change need to edit the code so I send to my theme support ask them edit it.

    slowly I came to know huh seem like a lot establish using " floating menu " for viewers like me i do find a bit irraiitng while i scroll down the menu drop is like forcing me to check out another pages . Actually " floating menu " main task is to make visitors don't need to scroll all the while up to check another page via the menu " BUT , now I look back my site , I don't put so much content on main page as what establish big site they like to put lots of big contents and this menu will drop as you scroll down " as mention the main idea is make visitors click the menu easily without scroll all the while up "

    I also do a search is it wise to put " floating menu " some IM do claim not wise as it cover Adsense ad if you happen to place adsense ad below not the side etc . hmmm...Well I guess better stick to presently which I don't have floating menu

    thanks http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/is-better-to-make-your-menu-drop-or-dont.878900/members/zwielicht.701565/ for your comment, it seem not only me, you also find it kinda irraiitng
