Main navigation menu - A proposal

Dear all,

As we announced last week, the next step is to bring into the discussion the AIMS main navigation menu.

You will find the proposed menu down below, which is slightly different to what was available in the last mock-up. It includes three levels:

  • the first and the second level to be displayed on the left (due to FAO web guidelines we can only have two, not expandable levels in the menu on the left )
  • the third level to be displayed horizontally on the homepage of the resource. Only some resources have a third level, like AGROVOC, AgriDrupal, etc...

For each element we have provided the URL of the existing page and added comments about the content that will be displayed. We hope that this will make the proposal more understandable.

With regard to the footer, our proposal is to use it for displaying information about communities, we will provide an example tomorrow when sending the final AIMS homepage mock-up.

Your turn! :-)

Imma & Sarah
