      Description

      Most of the menu items have actions under the item itself AND open a dropdown menu with further actions. There are a few usability problems with that:

      • The menu item action is somewhat hidden, it is not immediately clear the menu item acts as both a link and a way to open a menu.
      • On touch devices (ipod/ipad/android/etc..), there is no hover event, so there is no way to access the menu items.

      I think all links on the menu items should be moved to their menus, and a click event on the menu item should just toggle the drop-down menu open/close so that touch devices can use the menus.
