I'm working on a system where a user can manage content for a group he is a part of. The image below shows the structure of the menu. The top menu is the user menu. The second menu is the group menu. This is where the user can select his active group. The final menu is a content menu. Here the user can select a category of content to manage for his group (media, pages, posts, etc).
Imagine a user selecting a menu item from the content menu. There will most likely be an 'add'-button to the top right. For example; when a user clicks on 'media' he can select 'add media' from the top right.
Where should this button be compared to the content menu?
I have tried options:
- In the right of the group menu, because you add something to your group
- In the right of the content area, because you add content
See the images below. Both options have pros and cons for me. The second option might be the one to go for, but it will create a fourth menu to have your buttons for the content in. The first option puts the button further away from the content. It might not be logical to have a button in the group menu that changes based on the selection of an item from another menu.
I was wondering what you would do. Thanks!
