Menus are an important component of website design. Our site navigation systems are responsive, and they work well on Windows, Mac, IOS and Android devices. They are thoroughly tested with current versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari. They will function as designed — with slightly reduced functionality on older browsers.
A sitemap is a page that lists the location of every page and image that appears on your site. A sitemap also lists every link from your site to an external site. Sitemaps make it easier for search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing to index your site. Creating a Google sitemap and a Google image-map is the best way to keep your site visible on search engine databases.
Slide Out Menu
For sites with fewer pages, we prefer using a Drop Menu system for site navigation. In a normal browser window, the Drop Menu level-one items are arranged horizontally, and each level-one item can include a vertical sub-menu that drops down — with or without one of several very cool animations.
When you make your window narrower, or when you view the site on an iPhone or iPad, the Drop Menu magically transforms into a perfectly configured accordion. Menus can be setup as horizontal drop-downs or vertical accordions — perfect for a sidebar. Both types of menus are fully responsive and mobile-ready.
For sites with lots of pages, we like Pop Menu. This site navigation option offers features that are unmatched, automation that is unprecedented, and refinement that is unrivaled.
Put it all together, and we believe it is the ultimate menu. Mobile-friendly and mobile-ready, Pop Menu can be set to have a fixed position on scroll option. When the menu is scrolled to the top edge of the window, it becomes fixed, so that it is always in view. This feature automatically turns off for iPhones and iPads, to preserve important vertical space.
Pop Menu offers both horizontal and vertical menu orientation, with multiple levels of sub-menus. Pop Menu also offers a breadcrumb trail option, which we implement on very large sites.
One of the common challenges when creating responsive designs for mobile devices is the site navigation system. If the site has many sections or pages, it gets challenging to squeeze all of the menu items into a small space, due to the screen size of mobile devices. The site navigation system often ends up creating multiple rows, and sometimes the buttons even stack on top of each other.
Our Slide-Out Menu is up to the task. When you make your window narrow, or when you view your site from an iPhone or iPad, Mobile Menu magically transforms into a perfectly configured accordion (using the ubiquitous pancake icon).
Tree Menu is a special-purpose, auto-responsive site navigation system that we usually reserve for footer sitemaps. When viewed on an iPhone or iPad, the menu automatically collapses and a toggle bar appears above it.
Effects are deployed in ways that enhance modern browsers and devices, while assuring an attractive and accessible presentation in older browsers. Horizontal or vertical menu orientation, with multiple levels of sub-menus.
