The new footer has 5 current "Boxes" of categories: Technology, Life/Arts, Culture/Recreation, Science, and Other.
In the overall site list, however, there are 7 (discounting Business / All), with Life/Arts and Culture/Recreation being split up into their individual "Boxes".
However, clicking the "More" link of the site footer always brings you to the first "box", so Life or Culture.
The issue I just ran into was that it's not obvious that the boxes are merged on the footer and split on the site list. I clicked the "More" link for Culture/Recreation, and then spent a good several minutes looking for a Recreation site in the culture tab.
There are two main issues here:
- The combined Culture/Recreation and Life/Arts lists do not show which of the two categories the listed sites fall under. (Is Photography Life or Art? Is Travel Culture or Recreation?)
- The sites are grouped differently on the footer and in the site list.
I think if you're going to bundle the categories on the footer, you should do it on the sites list as well.
