Study Q170008. Home Page Menu
Question -
One common dilemma when designing home pages is how much information about sub-menus to include.

Some sites simply list the items of the main menu and trust that the contents of the site will be obvious. Others include both the main menu and sub-menus on the home page which helps you to make a more accurate selection but can also make the page look cluttered. Others still use some form of mouse-over which allows you to see the sub-menus by rolling your mouse over the items in the main menu.

While each of these methods has their advantages and disadvantages, in general terms, which of the methods do you prefer?

3845293The best way is to divide the website into 5 or so sections (the last one in the list should be About us/Contact us) then each section can be divided into subsections using a mouseover `dropdown' menuMarinAustraliaM30

3845112The main menu in a website is useful but I believe that a submenu is very useful as well, because it can guide better the guest.GreeceF30
