Today I made a website menu change! The old menu at the top of our pages is pictured above. Here’s the new top menu:
Why Did I Make A Change?
Most of us aren’t really fond of change, are we? (Still, for some quotes about the positive side of change, click HERE.) However, sometimes you just have to make changes to move forward.
Why did I make this change on my website? Let me explain. If you look at the top photo, you’ll see that the menu items were drop-downs. Notice the small, red down arrow beside each one. If you had clicked on one of those arrows, you would have seen other pages below the main page at the top. Here’s the problem…people were coming to our website and not realizing that the drop-down menu categories at the top had other things under them! What good is a website menu if you can’t find anything?
What’s Different Now!
The new top menu, pictured in the second photo, only has category headings. There are no drop-downs. When you click or tap on a category, it takes you to a page with various links. Let’s look at an example. If we select “Buy From Us,” you get this page:
As you can see, there is a brief description of each area on our site that pertains to the category heading and there is a link. This type of page layout should allow everyone to find what they are after!
Please Give The Website Menu Change A Try
Now it’s time to ask a favor: would you please be kind enough to go to the top of any of our website pages and try out the new menu? If you find anything that’s not working correctly, please let me know in the comments below.
