We've discussed different projects which can exist under the Birmingham.IO banner before, of which there are quite a few good ideas - and with examples like Planet Birmingham leading the charge, I think we're due some exciting things in the future.
What we don't currently have, however, is a common way of linking all these projects together. The site once had a splash page, which would have been the common element between them all, but since this was removed as a bad idea (because, frankly, it was a bad idea), I've not had any better ideas..
..that is, until now. What do you guys think of using a Meny navigation bar?
I quite like this myself, as I think it looks good, and is unobtrusive when not being used. It could be easily (I hope) added to each of the project pages, and act as a common navigation system between each project.
- Do you think this would be a good way of linking the projects together?
- If not, what examples of good navigation can you recommend?
