    You should post this is the suggestion box and technical support forum so one of the admins will definitely see it.

    But I agree...the new layout is lame.

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom before I see the front page. Is it just me?

    This new set-up doesn't work.

    First, I just wanted to add the caveat that nothing is final as we're in the process of trying some new things out. The idea of having the menu bar on the left is to make the layout more efficient, where more options are available to users without having to scroll. For example, having the "Site Navigation" menu on the left rather than the top will mean less scrolling to reach the content, plus the site navigation is always visible rather than having to scroll back to the top. Same goes for the "Member Login/Info" block.

    As for the other blocks at the moment (i.e. search, USMLE Qbank), this was a way to place added features without taking up any extra horizontal space. We'll probably change up some of these features (i.e. put the USMLE Qbank on the USMLE section only, etc) eventually, but we're just testing things out for now.

    So please share what it is you like/dislike about the new layout to better assist us. As always, your input is greatly appreciated.

    This shouldn't be happening. What internet browser and version are you using? Is it only on a particular page? If so, which one(s)? Any other info which can help us locate and fix the issue would be appreciated.

    p.s. moving to suggestion box / tech support forum

    Could be a browser issue, I am using Firefox and no problem. Anyways, I guess we will get used to it like every technological change, no big deal then.

    why not just create a user setting and allow individuals who don't like the navigation to not get the frame that shows the navigation. this should work well for everyone.

    I think its pretty cool. Really weird at first but its nice to be able to click the site navigation without having to scroll all the way up.
