    http://www.infonautics.com/ Nice graphical role over menu. Also has a drop-down box of links to their network partners. Fairly typical site map presentation. All this from a company that is in the business of helping you develop your site.

    http://www.wynford.ab.ca, http://www.wynford.ab.c....asp?ITEM=online_survey, I

    http://www.arcweb.com/arcweb/default.asp has cascading menues and javascript thatmoves the menu down as one scrolls down the screen. It also uses great "back to top of page" techniques (double click anywhere on the page!!)

    Jump menu

    is a pop-up menu of options that links to; documents within your site, documents on other Web sites, e-mail links, links to graphics, or links to any file type that can be opened in a browser. There are three basic components a jump menu can contain:

Once a jump menu item has been selected, there is no way to reselect the item if you navigate back to that page, or if the Open URL In field specifies a frame. There are two ways to work around this problem: Use a menu selection prompt, such as a category, or a user instruction, such as "Choose one:". A menu selection prompt is reselected after each menu selection. Use a Go button, which allows a user to revisit the currently selected link.

This example does not have a"Go" button on the bottom (like the one on the main map)

 

Here are a couple of examples of an expandable menu (Javascript) and the code that produces it;

         if (is.ns) document.height = collapse.lyr.y + collapse.h

         }collapse = new CollapseMenu(13,45,160,4,'collapseMenu')

  3. Crumbtrails

    Crumbtrail navigational aides (like footprints in the sand), help your site visitors retrace their web surfing paths. Here is an example;

    Top: Computers: Internet: WWW: Searching the Web: Directories:

is based on
<font size="+1"><b><a href="/">Top</a>: <a href="/Computers/">Computers</a>:
<a href="/Computers/Internet/">Internet</a>: <a href="/Computers/Internet/WWW/">WWW</a>:
<a href="/Computers/Internet/WWW/Searching_the_Web/">Searching the Web</a>:
<a href="/Computers/Internet/WWW/Searching_the_Web/Directories/">Directories</a>: </b></font>

  1. Here is a second crumbtrail example for your reference;

    You are here: Home > Computing & Internet > Download > Netscape Products > Archived Products >

    Essentially they are hard-coded links that provide users with several jumps back. They perform the same function that browsers try to provide (under "go" in Netscape, and the little down arrow between the "Back" and "Forward" arrows in MS Internet Explorer). There are benefits to having these "Your are here" tracks on the screen at all times, as a convenient permanent navigational aide. Crumbtrails are also very helpful to people who might have been deep-linked to this particular page.

    Following is the HTML code necessary to produce it.


    <!-- navigation -->
    <table border=0 width=600 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
    <tr><td align=center><hr width=600 noshade size=1></td></tr>
    <tr valign=top>
    <td align=left><font face=sans-serif,Arial,Helvetica size=2 COLOR=#CC0033>You are here:</font>&nbsp;<FONT FACE=sans-serif,Arial,Helvetica size=2><a href="http://home.netscape.com">Home</A> &gt; <a href="http://home.netscape.com/computing/index.html">Computing &amp; Internet</A> &gt; <a href="http://home.netscape.com/computing/download">Download</A> &gt; <a href="http://home.netscape.com/download/index.html">Netscape Products</A> &gt; <a href="/download/archive/index.html">Archived Products</A> &gt; Archived Client Products</font></td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    another example;

Home > Products > Support > User groups

Deadly Navigation Errors

 

 

Introductory, Intemediate, and Advanced are irrelevant classifications for navigations.

 

Tips for creating sitemaps:

Make sure your site map can be easily viewed

Be sure all the page titles in your site map make sense -- this list is very redundant (not to mention wayyy too long)

If your site map requires plug-ins or special technology, let users know in advance (fortunately ZD offers an alternate popup site map, although it's strikingly similar to the nav)

If you include navigation on the site map, make sure it's consistent

Is the content and level of detail appropriate for the targeted audience? Do the students know where they have been, what have they have learned, where they have visited, and what resources need to be explored on the web site?

Concept mapping addresses concerns about presenting material at the right level of detail; Are the users given the right amount of information, or is there "information overkill" or, at the other extreme, an over-simplicity in what is offered?

Multimedia interpretations and presentations using the navigation theme could be built according to any of the Hedberg and Harper approaches (Hedberg, J.
