HS01's New MP Nav

Posted by Swert , Jan 04 2013 · 130 views

Alright, so as mentioned on HEROsector01's main page news, we're planning to upgrade the main page to the same layout as BS01's, or close to it. One of these includes my pretty clever navigation system (yes I did actually create the concept, even if SK and Metax managed to make it all work... kudos to them, though).

What comes with this navigation? An actual button grid:

And if you weren't aware, BS01's main page navigation works by clicking a tile, and a menu slides from the right to the left with a list of both relevant and popular links under that subject. HS01 will have the same treatment, and I look forward to bringing it to you all.

I am open to constructive criticism, and possible alternate images for the grid itself, as well as possible color changes, but the categories themselves will stay. I -might- change Saga Guides if I can get a better category there.

Personally, hoping that this is less glitchy than BS01's can be sometimes. I also can't judge the look of the buttons until I see them as part of the complete main page layout. But overall, the main page nav we have currently is not dear to my heart and I rarely use it-- so I don't think this new nav will do any harm overall.

 

Constructive criticism of these buttons as they are currently? Well, the main issue I see is that the HF logo overlay on each one makes these small images that much harder to decipher. The Heroes, Robots, Locations, Villains, and Technology images all work all right, but the Objects and LEGO images don't make much sense until you realize what you're looking at (the Skull Staff is hard to identify when you hardly see any of it but the skull), and the Missions, Society, Saga Guides, Media, and HS01 buttons are nigh-indecipherable.

Can you elaborate on what those glitches are? The only one I've noticed is that sometimes the background logo on the tab pages may only display as half the logo.

OK, I've narrowed down exactly what happens, and it can easily be reproduced, at least on my computer:

 

  • Click any category icon. The category will load.
  • Click the "Back" button. The main page will load.
  • Repeat the previous two steps as many times as you like
  • Typically on the fourth, fifth, or sixth attempt, clicking the category icon will try to take you to the category, but will NOT load any content, including the "Back" button, and the only way to get back to the main page is to refresh your browser.

 

This process is the one I've typically encountered. However, I have also found that it occurs if you click on the SAME category icon each time. It has nothing to do with which categories you click or with how much time you allot between clicking the category and back buttons.
