How users get around your site is important. They want to be able to find what
they want and fast. But that doesn't mean it has to be dull. Presentation is
often tied closely to functionality, modeling your navigation to what a user
is familiar with can make it easier to use, and more likely to be used.
Of course, just making it cool can draw a user in as well. As long as it is
not so alien as to leave them helpless.
A flexible, space-saving navigation bar with drop-down menus, just like the
one used throughout this site.
Creates OS-like menus that can have any number of items and optional submenus.
Each menu's appearance can be individually configured and multiple menu sets
can be defined. Menus can be made static or opened in response to events like
mouseovers or clicks.
This is how the site used to look. Most of the pages in this Windows desktop
layout have dummy content but you can still play with the navigation. An
overview of the design and coding is provided.
