Ability for Non-Logged-In Users to Disable the Contextual Hover Menu
Short, concise description of the idea
Currently, it is possible for only logged-in users to disable the contextual hover menu. It is not possible for those who are logged out (or for those who do not have LiveJournal accounts) to disable it. Since this feature places additional strain on some browsers, I would like to have the option to disable it on the logged-out version of the Viewing Options page, much like it is possible to choose site scheme and language preferences.
Full description of the idea
Pretty much said it all above. ;)
- The ability to control this feature for logged-out users (or those who do not have LiveJournal accounts), who may not necessarily like this feature or find it useful.
- Less script to load and less strain on the user's browser when this feature is disabled.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- As usual, the time and trouble to code this option.
- LiveJournal cookies would have to be enabled in the user's browser in order for this to work properly, same as with the site scheme and language preferences. Also, settings to certain security programs or browser extensions that affect cookies might need to be tweaked on the user's end.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- Add the "Show contextual hover menu" option to the logged-out version of the Viewing Options page.
- Add cookie info that would maintain this setting for a logged-out user, in the same way that is done for site scheme and language preferences.
