comment Should hyperlinks be blue?
Well, you got a point there. Underlines can easily be misunderstood for emphasize, but normally it would be in a color as well (e.g. orange). Also the convention for emphasize is bold text. Concerning the colorblind people, I just have one friend who is colorblind, but he said, that he is always noticing underlines as links, because it is a convention as well and like this on many pages. So I figure, that as a colorblind person you might train yourself to notice it. I might be wrong of course.

Well, I think, if it does not work with your design, you do not need with conventions if your user group does not demand it. If you have mostly experienced user, who would notice an underlined text as a link, there is no need to ruin your w.g. black/orange color scheme with blue links. Conventions should be followed with though, not just because they are conventions. The idea of links is not new anymore, so they need not show up that much like in the old day. Underlining should do it for people with colorblindness.

comment CMS Interface Logic. - Is this the best approach?
Well, I guess I did get some important feedback. I do not think though, that your answers are outdated, because all the old images are still online, so one could read and understand all the comments and why there is this specific progress. Would you not agree?

Hey, I think, that basically we have the same ideas in our mockups. While I think I could give the user some more letters for their menu labels, I do not think you ever need that much. Menu items should bee simple and short, not descriptive. something long could be "About long companyname" but normally the menu on the webpage already limits the amount of characters. I still have a problem with the way to add items though. How do I add a same level item after the current one? What if the user does not get the idea to hover an item to create a new one? No need to add a trash. I can loose it np.

comment Most effective way to display the enable/disable part of a setup page
I have to disagree with you concerning the confusion. In my opinion it is perfectly clear. You see what you get (on or off) and it is even highlighted in a color (normally buttons show that they are on, e.g. orange glow on kitchen devices) to indicated, that it is switched on.

Well, thanks for your answer. The Meta Menu thing is a misunderstanding. It is just a second Menu. Like a footer Menu, or something. You do have to fill out more than 3 inputs but not to many more. I just like it to be able to recover deleted items, but maybe it is really unneeded. I will think about this. I do see why you find the horizontal layout of the menu confusing, but if I have it all vertically, it takes up much more space and one has to scroll always. I do agree though, that it might be confusing, any better idea?

I am looking forward to the mockup. I will consider your ideas for my mockup too. I like the trash bin idea. I want the user to be able to simply undo a „delete action“, even if it was not the last action he did. Removing the „Unassigned“ pannel is no problem. Actually I am not that sure anymore in which situation I thought a user would have unassigned menu items apart from the just created one. The only thing I am not sure about yet, is the mentioned way to insert data. This way the user needs to first decide where to put the menu point. But I will give it a try. Thanks for all the input.

Well, so I guess I will build a real looking prototype soon. Thanks anyway. I will have it up here in some days.

Hey, thanks, user-testing would be my second step. I would create a prototype for this using real interface elements. I find that it is often easier to grasp an idea using a real interface. I just did this quick wireframe and all the explanation, to give you an idea how it works. I thought that having only the text in the images but real elements also indicating draggable parts, it would be fairly easy to understand. Would you disagree? Do you maybe have another idea on how to do it in a better way? Or do you think I need to do a real interface just to figure out if it is understandable?
