Upcoming Wowhead Navigation Menu Redesign
17.10.2016 um 12:24
Following the launch of Legion, the Wowhead team has been gathering data on how users find information on our site. Our goal is to provide the best possible information on WoW...but sometimes that information could be easier to find!
It soon became clear that the navigation bar and large vertical drop-down menus were in need of a fresh coat of paint. We have a few proposed changes in store:
Dropdown menus have been redesigned
to take up less vertical space and look more modern. As the site has expanded over time the menus have also grown larger, making some menus especially unruly.
The navigation bar has expanded
to have one row for important parts of the site (eg Database, Tools), and a new row for popular current content (Emerald Nightmare, Mythic+). This should make things less visually cluttered, especially for non-English locales.
The new content navigation bar has images for easier browsing
. The announcement bar with class and boss icons was very large, but it was effective at getting people to click on topics that were historically ignored on the navigation bar. We've incorporated some of these graphics onto the new content navigation bar, which will be updated for current and popular content.
Here are some sample screenshots of the redesign, showing off the revamped Database dropdown menu and new navigation row for important content and guides:
While under-utilized, the navigation bar has been a constant on the site for many years and we wanted to give everyone a heads up before making the change. Thanks for the feedback!
