XF 2.0 Menu Hover


Active member
Is there an option to change all or some of the drop downs in XF2 to drop down on hover vs click?

I believe you use to be able to hover to reveal a menu such as alerts but now you need to click to see the alerts.

Only a small thing but wanted to see if there is an option to re enable that.

Any ideas appreciated.

The developers have spoken at length about it, on the xf2 demo site and here.

If you do a search you may be able to find some of their posts regarding it.

I missed this at the time and a lot of our users are now complaining that the hover on alerts is "broken". What was the rationale for the change?
