Works as expected on Chrome 28.

The icon is not clear as to what it is (but the exact same argument should be levied at Chrome when it changed the wrench icon to a 3-bar icon...) but I don't really know what can be done to make it more useful.

I still think capturing the middle button is a bad idea for anyone who has it set up for other uses (plenty of users do use it to open things into a new tab and the above example)

But hey, you know best about this.

There's always time to fix stuff.

Pete. Since day one, middle click isn't hooked by the sidebar when it's done over a link. Are you sure you didn't miss the early talk..?

PS: fixed a bug added today where it was impossible to post in mobile mode... Thankfully, drafts were still saved. -_-

Are you doing some test against HDPI displays or something? I can't have a look at source now but the sidebar absolutely doesn't work for me.

And how I am supposed to test in a device I don't own..?

With the recent changes, the sidebar no longer shows on windows phone 8, ie10.
When i click the 3 bars, the screen slides as expected but the sidebar does show, just the blank white area. When I click anywhere outside that area the screen retracts as expected.

Hmm... -_-

Well, anyway my current local version has seen a lot of extra changes... Which I don't even know if I should commit... :-/

Considering that Warm has a 'special' layout, I started to scroll only the main content area, i.e. not the header, and now the top bar is at a fixed position, so you see it permanently on the screen (in mobile mode, at the very least...), but it breaks heavily in Warm too, and it's starting to really, really piss me off...

It sounds to me like infinite scrolling and responsive sidebars are voodoo tricks that will never behave consistently on all setups (browser + server + skin + plugins), and I shouldn't even bother with them... But what good is Wedge, if I only settle for the easy road, and give up on the bells and whistles which I've enjoyed adding over the years...?!

Hmm, PMs should probably issue a notifier, users on mobile including iPad will not see the sidebar by default and may not know they have messages.

Moved sidebar to the right (by default) in responsive mode, as well as the menu button.
Reasons:
- most people are right-handed. On a mobile device, it makes more sense to make the button easily accessible to their right hand if it's controlling the device, I guess...
- top-right corner is the least important corner, so it also makes sense to put the fixed button there, and if a fixed button is there, then we might as well put the non-fixed version there as well, just a matter of logic...

Also modified the non-hardware scrolling, to very simply emulate the hardware scroll. It's all about logic, tonight...

Please post feedback, bugs, etc...

PS: also, I'm considering getting rid of left/right swipes in mobile mode, reason being that the fixed button should be more than enough to get the sidebar to show, and swipes always mean giving something away, in terms of UX.

Hmmn, don't know what I am doing wrong.  I downsize my browser viewport to test responsiveness, click the sidebar toggle icon in the upper right and the page stretches without horizontal scrollbars.  I can't see the sidebar anywhere.  Clicking on the webpage proper returns everything back to normal.
