Dear contributors,

I'm bothering you again, this time to ask your opinion on a main page change I might or might not be pulling through. This blog compares the current main page's navigation with the one I made, as a sample, in my own Sandbox.

Current navigation

The navigation we currently have on our Main Page, has two separate boxes, the second of which has two headers.

Current navigation
Pro Contra
  • You don't need to click tabs, everything's right there: new people won't miss out anything
  • Each section can be longer or shorter than the other
  • It takes up a rather large amount of space and you'd need to scroll instead of click tabs

Tabber navigation

The navigation I made in User:Yatalu/Sandbox works with <tabber> and has three tabs with two rows of icons each.

Tabber navigation
Pro Contra
  • Takes up not even half the amount of space (less scrolling or more space for other stuff)
  • Can expand with more tabs without taking up extra space as well
  • The "About" tab is most important anyway
  • Before it's fully loaded, all tabs will appear under each other for a short time
  • New people might look over the tabs and miss out content
  • To keep the amount of rows consistent, less completed pages might be added as options

Your opinion


Any further remarks, anything to add up to my blog? Comment below :) I will try to update the blog with Pros and Cons as we go.
