meeting

I think I took what we dis­cussed and enact­ed changes (because it would be easy enough to switch back if need­ed).  Com­pare the menus between the cur­rent site and the pre­vi­ous one ( http://old.moprevention.org/ ). I was look­ing to clear up both the con­fus­ing mul­ti-lev­el items/children and to pare down the wrapped mul­ti-line pri­ma­ry menu into a con­cise one-line pri­ma­ry menu with a more ‘house­keep­ing focused” top menu + search as is more typ­i­cal of stan­dard site design (and encour­aged by the theme we are using).

Areas I felt were problematic:

Result­ing menu putting both “resource” items under a sin­gle menu head­er and adding a line for each (the sec­ond being itself a menuheader)

I had moved the “About MPSI” item to the top menu where it is often found on oth­er sites, but received feed­back that it was caus­ing con­fu­sion and so moved it back down to the pri­ma­ry menu.  I think the result is still clean, intu­itive, and orga­nized.  Please give me feed­back if changes are need­ed.
Any­thing to fur­ther abbre­vi­ate the items under the Resources menu head­er would help with a prob­lem (I had to reduce my font-size for the above screen-cap­ture) that I antic­i­pate may be expe­ri­enced by some with the sub-menu items being cut-off visu­al­ly when opened… pos­si­ble sug­ges­tions, drop­ping the redun­dant “RESOURCES” and abbre­vi­at­ing “RESOURCES FOR PARENTS” to “PARENTS”, and abbre­vi­at­ing “CONSULTATIONS” to “CONSULTS” as every lit­tle bit helps pull the edge in from the right-hand mar­gin.  Anoth­er fix for this would be to reorder the menu-items so that the “RESOURCES” pull-down is posi­tioned fur­ther left away from the right-hand margin.
