New Navigation Bar


 

This Navigation Bar Update was approved at the Community of Practice Meeting

 

Change One

CMS Admin users voted for a change to the Grey Level Menu Bar. It was the consensus of the group the Grey Level would be more user friendly if this were amended from a Horizontal to a Vertical Display.  When users now hover over a heading on the Blue Bar of the Navigation Menu, the Grey Bar (Child Pages) will now drop down directly Vertically from this area instead of appearing Horizontally across the whole of the Navigation Bar.

Change Two

On the Top-Level Navigation Bar (Blue Level) if there are more heading items than fit horizontally across the screen - the overflowing items can be seen by clicking on the 3 dots on the right of the menu bar. Sometimes the last item is only partially seen and isn't always clickable (for example if only the first couple of characters is visible). 

We have now implemented a change so that as items start to fall off the Navigation Bar they will drop directly into a new overflow menu just below. This new Menu area will appear/disappear according to the size and shape of the platform the user is operating.
