I have a progress bar at the top of all pages in a signup process:
Personal details > Contact details > Choose membership package > Buy > Finish
The order of these steps is fixed but I have a question about the 'choose membership package' step. Whereas all the other steps are single pages, the 'choose membership package is made up of 2 pages:
Summary of packages > Details on a particular package
The user chooses their membership package from the summary screen and then reads additional information about it on the details page.
How would you break these two sub-steps up on the page and progress indicator?
They don't seem to be distinct enough tasks to warrant 2 separate steps on a progress indicator with limited space. Also, the details screen has too much information to fit in a lightbox - it's a full page in it's own right.
