A few weeks ago, Brian Floe had a great feature request — to add a drop-down menu to the network bar, giving NCs direct access to all their manage pages.
It's simple, easy to do, and makes site management easier — we love it, and we're going to roll it out soon. In the meantime, we had one product question we wanted to ask. Would you rather see all Dashboard items in one list, or have a sub-nav? See the mockups for what I mean.
My vote is for Option A, because it's probably worth seeing everything at once, even if it does make the list pretty long. Also, we think there are ways we can optimize this organization going forward, so we're not super-committed to keeping the current structure. Might not make sense to set up a sub-nav if we're going to change it later.
With that in mind let us know what you feel — this is a feature for NCs by NCs :)
LOL I believe the Ning bar hack has been around at least since '08, Donna.
Well, it looks like option "A" is going to get the vote.
Nah, I wasn't even thinking of removing it....I never use it but it doesn't bother me there one way or the other. I just didn't know one could remove it....LOL
- Easier to extend later.
- Less overwhelming.
- Less space consuming.
