Mobile view home page needs more above the fold #235
Like #236 I think we can solve some of this by removing the black header altogether and just have a minimal support header for the support section. This would also eliminate the double search bars that look ridiculous. This is a larger discussion though.
But ultimately as for mobile, research shows that people scroll. https://www.nngroup.com/articles/scrolling-and-attention/

This could be because the 'search' box on the support home page only offers to search the forums. If our new search covers more than just forums, we might get more traction on it.
Something to consider, is that this design currently follows the design patterns of the rest of the site. Yes, the "search" will be prominent on mobile, but I don't think that's a bad thing.
It could be because the main menu link for Forums goes to the support page. I've asked about this before. Makes no sense to me.
I just think the blue part with the search box should be a bit smaller on mobile. The black part could be smaller too, but I wouldn't want to get rid of it. I like being able to search all of wp. Please don't choose a "solution" that reduces the user's options on the part of the site that is supposed to be helping him.
