I'm working on a project, and have ran into a little design problem.
I have a navbar right above the content.
I'm not sure if the page should have a heading on it.
I've given examples below.
I would include the heading for the following reasons:
I think it depends on the context of the page.
Is the content self-evident? That is, if the nav item says "Activity", does the content make it clear that you're looking at activity items? For pages that are mostly copy, like you would see on a marketing site, page headers are great for wayfinding. A title can help users understand what they are reading before having to dive into 4 paragraphs of content. But in web apps where the content is very specific I'm not sure that adding a page title would be helpful.
