Typically when you move your mouse away from a button even the slightest bit, its drop-down menu disappears, which is a pain in the butt.

I fixed this by adding an invisible space around the drop down. Luke Seemann, Chicago Magazine’s Managing Editor of Digital, said a few kind words about it in a Society for News Design interview, which you can find here.

The site now reads fantastically, and Luke has done an excellent job pushing our base forward. I’m always excited to see the site when I click on a social media link.
