Redesigned navigation menu. - January 27th 2013, 03:10 PM

Hello everybody,

Today I am pleased to unveil a redesigned navigation menu for TeenHelp.

For a long time TeenHelp's menu has focused particularly on the Support Forums, with many features connected into the Forums or only available through them. One of the main areas of improvement with this new layout has been to try and break features out of the Forums to improve accessibility. You will notice that many features that were previously only available through coming to the Forums first (such as the Chat Room or Private Messages) can now be accessed from any page of the website.

The new navigation menu has two bars like the previous one, however the division is much clearer. The top bar is for features for all users, while the second is for features for registered users only (such as the Chat Room, Blogs, etc). Both menus will display on all pages, enabling you to get around the site more quickly.

I hope this change is beneficial for your browsing experience.

Thank you.

Very much so, great work .

Only a couple of suggestions:
Can we centre the "User Features" bar?
Although the new theme recognises that the whole site is not based around the forums, a lot of it does and I'd like to ask if the main logo could redirect through to the forums rather than the front page again? It's a matter of habit to click it to go to the main forums...

I love it! It's so much easier to navigate the site now. It was kind of annoying having to go the forums before you could access the User CP, blogs, chat room, etc.
Thanks, Rob!

Normally I hate design changes, but this one actually makes sense and I think will make things easier.

I agree with Nicole. Usually I don't like design changes, but this makes the navigation of the sight much easier, and simpler.

Great job, Rob!

Looks good rob


Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty confused when I logged on.
However, I'm digging it. Seems to make things a lot easier to navigate!

I've grown attached to the old look so this will have some getting used to, but it looks pretty snazy.

I like the new look, it's a-lot more easier to go around the site and it's all so less squished / squidged together I like it a-lot.

Re: Redesigned navigation menu. - January 27th 2013, 07:51 PM

I'm usually wary of redesigns as well... but after clicking on "About" and seeing I could access the list of staff members through a drop-down menu (vs. the old way, which was always a bit clunky and annoying for me), I've set my reservations aside and embraced the new format. It also nice to be able to access the staff panel wherever I go... I don't need to navigate back to the support forums page every time I need something (if anyone gets tired of having to scroll past it every time a new page loads, just click on the box in the top-right corner to minimize it)! Thank you for putting so much time and effort into this, Rob! =D

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

I'm so glad you finally implemented this, it's absolutely perfect. And I agree with what Robin said in terms of the staff panel, this way is much better!

This looks great! Weird at first, but it really grew on me, blogs are easy to access which is the best part. It's very well organized.

Rob, you still need to teach me coding so I can make anything online look this nice.

I like it, neat and clean, but the New Posts and Support forums is unevenly spaced vs everything else and looks weird that way
