lol came here to say the same. It really is unusable and it's not in the search engines either so I can't even just turn to Google - which generally gives better results than native forum search functions anyway.
It's a shame really, I came here to get the answer to a question, but my searches just turned up someone else's long long long css pastes and I just gave up trying to scan for a relevant topic. So all I did was post my question without really discovering if it is a popular question with some good answers to it already. I didn't get much response and I guess once it slips off the top of the forum no one will ever find it again anyway.
This ultimately harms the community as I've walked away with a poor experience and I'm less likely to come back here for help, or give help.
This is a bbPress forum, right? It can't he hard to alter it. Surely no one thought having the results in this format was a good idea, this is just an oversight that needs correcting?
Perhaps we should log it as a support issue!

Thanks Victor, yes I think I'll have to read up on it! I've never actually got into that before so it will be interesting to learn.
If anyone else has worked it out, do let me know.
I'll blog up my results (assuming I get it working!).
I figured it out.
If anyone else is interested, my solution was to create a custom loop based on the posts here - lots of help in the comments.
My loop was a function in my own plugin's class. I used jQuery AJAX to post back to a "handler.php" script, this interpreted the $_POST variable and passed these parameters to my custom loop function in the class (which I made global). The loop outputs a set of posts that replaces the current set on the page.
All working very smoothly, thanks all. I'll post up a more detailed explanation here at some point in the (distant) future.

OK, well it looks like the Featured post Amplified plugin has the necessary hooks to get this done...
Would be good to see these hooks added to the Genesis framework.
It's looking good in IE9 so perhaps the steer will be to encourage people to upgrade! tbh I'm OK with that, but there are still a tonne of people on IE8 I guess.
Agreed, hit the same problem here. Great theme so hope this bug gets sorted.
I actually built a whole site whilst testing with Chrome before having a check in IE - d'oh!
Presumably StudioPress will have to address this, anyone raised a support issue?
Thanks Susan! Sounds like the easiest solution although I'm actually really happy with how my menus are now working.
Curious to know how it works on an iPhone? So you press at the top and the drop down appears? What if you want to actually hit the top link? Just press again? What if you want to collapse the menu? I really can't see how it can behave the same way as with a mouse! tbh my site is an Android based site so I can't say I care too much if Safari handles this ;-)!
Nope, doesn't work here. Long press brings up a new dialogue "open in new tab, open in incognito, etc".
But that's interesting, it makes me think it depends on what mobile browser you are using. Sounds like this is more a problem with Chrome than with WordPress.
Anyway, for what it's worth I've improved navigation by adding another nav menu that changes dynamically depending on what page you are on. This ensures all options are available without having to go via the drop down. I think this is actually a better design as it exposes other areas of the site that were hidden behind the drop down - bounce rate has dropped since implementing. Tis all good.
Good article, thanks for that.
But no, what I am saying is that the nav menus on StudioPress themes are not functional on touch screen devices (and this may be a problem that affects all WP menus?). This seems a big flaw in themes sold as "mobile responsive".
You can see it here on the StudioPress site:
1)On a phone or tablet load up http://www.studiopress.com
2)Now try to access the forum under the Resources menu
3)As there is no mouse you cannot hover over "Resources" to get the drop down.
4)If you touch resources the drop down does appear, however you are whisked away to the resources page as you just tapped a link!
Like I said, I could be wrong on this and actually there is a way to navigate these menus that I don't know about? Perhaps this is a known limitation and we just have to design our sites around it? Just really wanting to know what other people think before deciding how to handle this.
My site is geared to mobile devices so it's something I need to think about 🙂
