The question is, should the header/navigation of the site always be the same - no exceptions. Or should it generally be the same but allow for some exceptions depending on the page? Or is there another school of thought?
There seems to be 2 opinions from my colleages:
- It should be consistent on the majority of the pages, but it should not be a written rule, if the page would do better with a different header/navigation (or dropping it all together) then do what makes the page work better.
- It should always be the same no exceptions - it is too jarring for the user who will then become confused and feel like they have left the site.
What are your opinions?
