Navigation Patterns

  • Content-Based: On each page, the navigational choices are identical. It may indicate a flat or hierarchical structure.
  • Menu-Driven: A primary menu offers access to sub-modules. Navigating between displays is prohibited and primarily used for device interfaces.
  • Transactional: Provides feedback on the current phase of a sequential process and the opportunity to return to an earlier step. Your design should consider how the user will navigate between screens and pages.

Guidelines for Website Navigation

  • Design for all screen resolutions
  • Provide easy access to the most vital facts.
