How do you want the top navigation to look like?


#1

We have more and more things added to this website so we are trying to simplify the top navigation.

Here is an example of how the web master wants it …

Hardware | Help | Forum | Contribute | Contact | Distributors
(here is the drop down)
Help

  • Getting Started
  • FAQ
  • Downloads
    Contribute
  • Wiki
  • Fezzer.com
  • Chat

I like it more like this
Hardware | Downloads | FAQ | Community | Contact | Distributors
(here is the drop down)
Community

======================
What do you guys think? Keep in mind the new users that come in and they are not sure where to start.

I like second set.


#3

Me too, 2nd option is better.

Here is how I want the top navavigation to look like:

Hardware | FAQ | Forum | Contribute | Contact | Distributors

FAQ

  • Getting Started
  • Downloads

Forum

  • Chat
  • Search
  • Users

Contribute

I agree with Sam. If this is not possible then I like Gus’ option :slight_smile:


#6

Sam,

You are missing FAQ/FAQ ;D


#7

I assume clicking FAQ as the top option takes you to the FAQ :slight_smile:


#8

Yes but it is not obvious that the top one is click-able


#9

I say either Gus’ or Sam’s, it would be nice to group them up a bit.

Josh,

I guess you right, similar to how “Forum” is right now.
Top level menu with a drop down and a link at the same time.


#11

I like the second set. I would also like to see the ‘Search’ tool brought back down to where it was.


#12

I like to give an other suggestion what is a combination of both:

Hardware | Help | Downloads | Forum | Community | Contact | Distributors
(here is the drop down)
Help

  • Getting Started
  • Online GHI Electronics NETMF Documentation
  • Watch Video’s
  • FAQ
  • Search forum
    Downloads
  • beta
  • release notes
    Forum
  • new messages.
  • users
    Community

  • Chat

The reason i moved the forum menu to the top menu is basically because that is the one of the main pillars of the Tinyclr site.
I like the term Community nicer then contribute which implicate for me that i MUST contribute there, and i’m not allowed to look there when i’m searching for nice code/help from others.
In my idea the Help menu, needs to have all documents and videos easily at hand. Like does that now moved down under the download pages.

I like your idea! :clap:

Yours bring up a lot of things that really hard to find, i.e Online GHI Electronics NETMF Documentation, Watch Video’s, etc.

And I also agree with the choice of word “Community”.

Perfect!


#14

Yup, niels’ example is great 8)


#15

+1 vote for nielsnl idea!


#16

niels is nice except for search forum not being under forum.


#17

bstag,

that was my first place to put it, indeed …
but then i realized that it is not the right place to have it.
because when you need help you need a way to search the forum, and it does not nake sense to me that people need to search for the forum search option in the top menu.


#18

Yes but it doesn’t fit under the name you have it with forum as a main heading. It is a way to find help sure, but when you have a forum as a main heading then searching the “forum” definitely belongs there. Now you want to put it into both spots them by all means that works.


#19

there is quick search and detailed search. Quick can be on the forum and detailed directed from navigation?


#20

Yes, do that please :slight_smile:
