In your example, the answer is simply "no". However, keep in mind the use case on smaller screen or what happens if the user clicks on Documentation and is directed to an other screen. In the example you gave, the word "Documentation" is not needed in the sub-menu items, in fact, Menu's are about logical grouping and not necessarily literal grouping. From ...

It would be good to display a brief on-page message over the blurred content that reminds the user they need to be registered. Perhaps with less detail than the modal window. Better still, it would be good to expose a small portion of the content to give them some incentive to register. Test the prototype with users, and ask them to close the modal, then ...

Two ideas: 1 Input box: "What country would you like to visit?" Inputed text guides user to that country page? 2 Maybe there's an All Countries option, listing all countries maybe by region, featuring popular or hidden gem resorts (or any other criteria) on that All Countries landing page.

I think the BACK/NEXT navigation within the quickview is only useful if the user is in a well defined category or filter where they are trying to compare similar items.

Is there not enough real estate for a tab bar at the bottom of the page? It's a very standard thing to do at least on iOS. Another solution might be incorporating their account name/picture as a button (not substantiated by research, but user probably are more likely to tap their own name/picture to see where it brings them). A similar alternative may be ...

I think part of the problem with this example is that creating a post, which is a mode, is actually being presented in the same way as the list of categories, which is a view or a 'place' within the app. This means that after creating a post, there is no natural 'place' for the user to be returned to. If all of the existing posts live inside the ...

I think what the wireframe has is a better option minus the 9 dots. 3 dots, from what I've been seeing, is becoming the (dare i say universal) 'more' icon. With your suggestion, what happens if they want to add more links in a few months? You could also look into some design patterns for side drawer menu options as well. You can have them show just a bit ...

Most websites seem so make use of the words "back" and "top" most of the times (see this list for examples) in various combinations (back to top, back to the top, to top, top,...). I do not completely understand what you mean with it not being "classy" enough. What is your definition of classy and which analysis shows that users find it insufficiently ...

Something like this; Hovering above nodes will reveal add-button. Clicking on the add-button will set node as 'checked'. Clicking on node-text or clicking on arrow will slide on 1 level deeper in the nav. EDIT: 'Done-button' functions to finishes the task 'add nodes' Or click outside the menu (eg in main-section) will hide menu. Good plan?

I use an up-arrow and the word "Top". Regular Hovered Here is why I use it: It is intuitive - Everyone knows where it's going It is clear - Don't have to worry about ambiguous wording like 'Back to Top' It is simple - Minimal wording to reduce crowding of the button.

Here are some suggestions: The title/heading of the first menu layer, 'Search Nodes', is confusing. It might be better just to echo the link the user just clicked to slide out the menu i.e. "Add Nodes" It feels like you might be over-using checkboxes. The first example of this is next to 'Select previously bookmarked nodes'. A checkbox shouldn't be ...

While it's difficult to give the best possible answer without knowing how many products and product categories you have, there are some fundamentals of menu design and IA that can be touched on here. Your first example will result in a less good experience for the user. When the primary navigation is a single link (no dropdown), the expectation is that the ...

Personally, I think messing with tabindex is messy business. It's difficult (if not impossible) to use it in a way that is intuitive for users. If I (and I think most other people on the web) see a form element I need to interact with, I click on it and tab from there rather than trying to tab to it up front. Two possible use-cases for tabindex that I have ...

Android I think that Android Guidelines about navigation are an interesting and very useful read. In particular, I think that it's helpful to refer to the difference between: The Up button - which is used to navigate within an app based on the hierarchical relationships between screens. For instance, if screen A displays a list of items, and ...

Since you seem to be using anchors already, instead of using a back button you could also implement a button that says "start" or "home" or "top" and let that link to the top of the page. This is less confusing for people that enter the page at a specific anchor point (email-use-case) and would also be js-free. The button wouldn't have to be implemented on ...

I don't see a problem with what you have now. "Free practice questions from real exams" catches the eye quite well, but it doesn't detract from the main service you are offering.

Personally, I think hiding information from users who know what they want, in the name of guiding some other users into a decision, would be a poor design choice. Few things annoy users more than being guided through a process when they already know what they want. Anyway, merely hiding one of the tiers doesn't really "guide", does it? It just makes it ...

In my opinion, pages should never ever use Javascript back. Why would I want to click a back button on your page? There is already a browser function for that. I will use that if I want to go back. Links should link to actual places, not Javascript trickery that confuses browser interface with web navigation. So, I would definitely prefer a menu in this ...

You should not re-organize your site, just for promoting a specific feature. The information architecture of your site is a long-term objective, while the promotion is a very short-term. I recommend adding redundant elements for a limited period of time, to promote the new feature. I like the sash you are considering, you could also add links on the home ...

It sounds like you need to rework your menu system/grouping. For a mobile application this seems like too many menu options. Assuming you keep the same grouping you could consider collapsing all groups except the one you are in. That includes any sibling level menus. Example assume Three 5 - 3 is selected. Your menu would look like this: Top One Top Two ...

The Esc key is a good idea for dialogs, as some users expect that a dialog box will close with Esc. For example, Win32 (Windows) and Cocoa (OS X) dialog boxes close with Esc so including this in your website will make the site more seamless.

From my perspective there is two views on this question: On standard websites people do not expect the Esc key to work. Instead people do (still) use the back button a lot. In animation and video the Esc key is actually a commonly known interaction pattern – at least fpr people that regularly use the full screen mode and want to leave it with the push of ...

The closest thing I can readily think of is how Wiki sites handle this. "Plain" text links are almost always going to take you to another page on that site; "contents" links in a table (?) are usually for jumping around the page you're on; and the sites with the external link icon at the end of the link... well, they are external links. Links for stuff on ...

There are a bunch of different ways, how to show videos, that are not in top: Just a bigger amount of categories Special categories, like "Hot", "Top", "Best", "Best for today/month/year", "Random" etc. Showing new content shuffling it inside the standart list of videos. For example you have 100 videos that are arranged by popularity. You can insert a new ...

The order of the results is completely in your control. If you want to make users view more less popular videos and videos from a long time ago put them within the first 30 results that the user sees. It's pretty easy to put one random result that has the respected category from the database within the first 10 results that the app lists.

One suggestion would be to condense your categories so there are simply less of them. If users aren't bothering to scroll through all of your categories, you've probably created too many. Unfortunately, this doesn't help solve the problem for older/less-popular movies, though. For increasing the visibility of those seldom-seen movies individually, maybe ...

If they are touching a different area I suspect you can use the same gesture for both. As to the question of if this will confuse the users, I would say it depends on how its set up. Carousels are often interacted with in the left / right manner because they re-enforce with graphics the mental model of having to go left / right in a stack of images. Going ...

The fact that you want to use a "tutorial" to explain the gestures, which could provoke a "wrong" behaviour, if made on the carousel, seems to me to be a design smell. I agree, lots of users know the "swipe-to-get-back" gesture, but I think you should still provide a back link. Have a look the the iOs mail app. They provide the gesture and a button too. The ...

it really depends on the product. could you elaborate more what kind of product are you referring to? some products such as news portals it would make sense to have a layout that get customized to the user's preferences after the user signs it. while before signing in the user will get generic content. in this case the answer would be to keep the ux similar. ...

The two experiences should be completely different. I say that because they target two moments of the user interaction: 1- the customer wants no understand the product, its benefits and if this meets his needs and expectations. The public site will help addressing this questions and guide the user to the purchase moment 2- the customer is now a user (i know, ...

What is best for one site/app might not be best for yours. There really aren't any best practices. Try whatever comes natural to you. Test it. If it doesn't work, change it. Don't over think it.
