The adjustment is only visible on desktop. If you're reading this post on your phone it will be less clear what I’m referring to.
If you're on desktop, you'll notice that we have added a sticky navigation bar to the post page. Articles and discussions will now be accompanied by more info about the author of the post, as well as navigation to other posts that are trending on dev.to. It leans towards selecting"trending" articles which share tags with the post you are reading, but if the tag isn't as popular it will go more general.
This style is fairly common on the web, but it’s still a departure from our previous design. No design change is without its critics, but we think this direction is a good one that will improve the reading and discovery experience.
If you have thoughts about how we could tweak this, we'd gladly hear your ideas. We plan to continue experimenting with the trending articles and the design here as we try to improve the experience.
Happy coding ❤️
