Navigation Bar Changes

aaros 3 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 3 years ago 2

The navigation bar across the top of the site elements collapsed/added/changed to make it better for users. The way it works currently adds many unnecessary clicks for users.

I already posted one suggestion specifically about the notification icon. Here are a few more general things I very strongly would suggest:

  • Instead of having "artwork - photos - stories - multimedia" etc in the navigation bar just collapse those into a "what's new" and "what's popular" link and add tabs for different kinds of content on the "new" and "popular" pages instead.
  • Add a "submit content" button next to the notifications area of the navigation bar.
  • Have the username link back to your userpage so you can eliminate an extra click when you want to view your userpage.
  • Put the "what's new" link instead as a notification icon in the navigation bar to save a click.
  • Separate different kinds of notifications into different icons as described in the other suggestion I linked

Please do this...All the extra clicks to do common things like going to your profile really add up.

The site navigation has changed significantly, and at this point, it's close to finalized. We've made a button specifically for the gallery and to upload. Clicking on your own name also takes you back to your profile now. Notifications have also been separated into categories.

I'd especially like a "submit content" button. It's half the point of the site, after all!
