Blogs: inter-page navigation

I've noticed that on many blogs (especially those built with WordPress theme 2010) that within a specific blog post page there is navigation at the top of the post page that allows the user to navigate to the previous or following post.

Hover Menus Cause Many Problems

There are many large, high-traffic sites today that use hover menus. It has become the default navigation scheme to use because it's the only scheme most designers can think of when designing large sites with a lot of content. What many don't know is that there are a lot of usability issues with hover menus.

What do you think about this menu?


I've been tasked with reviewing an admin interface for one of our devices. In this interface, there is a very simple menu system. You can take a look at it (sans labels) at the following link:

As you can see, the main menu is color coded for each item. Opening a main item gives you a secondary (and even a tertiary) flyout menu of the same color.

Mobile Button Shapes for Main Navigation? Circles vs. Round Cornered Squares?

Hi Everyone,

I'm designing a mobile application and M site. We currently are using round circle iconography to denote specific user interactions and sections of the site. I'd like to reuse these icons visually, but then have them as rounded corner rectangle icons. My gut reaction and decision for this is that it fits more with the icon paradigm (for the most part) with iphone and Android apps and devices.

This being said, I need some research to back up my claim. A colleague is wondering how I came to my initial decision and i need research to point to.

Thoughts on locked navigations?

Hello everyone!

We're in the middle of a site redesign and currently exploring navigation options. 

One option is a navigation thats locked to the bottom of a page with sub-menus that fly up. 

I don't often find menus like these and I'm trying to figure out why! :)

I know and has a navigation that locks to the top of the page, which are more recent examples. However, haven't really found navigations glued to the bottom. 

Would love your thoughts on this. 

Thanks in advance!
