As designed Is it intended that "inactive" navgroup links are dimmed in the desktop layout but not in the mobile layout?

Affected version

In XenForo 2.1, "inactive" navgroup links are still dimmed for wide viewports but when using a smaller viewport, the very same icons are not dimmed anymore in XenForo 2.1.

You can see this here on



Maybe this was an intentional change to make all four icons have the same color on smaller viewports. But then maybe the dimming should be removed for wider viewports, too? The badges themselves should be indication enough that something new exists. :)

This is intentional.

There are multiple elements of separation on the desktop that don't exist on the mobile version that lead to different approaches potentially being ideal, though they can be adjusted in templates.
