I know hamburger menus in desktop are not optimal but our team is stuck with it. Therefore, we wanted implement a normal main nav for subpages, which will result in a inconsistent experience.

Wanted to ask for any opinions or considerations for this approach, or examples of acceptable executions.

  • Can u provide screenshots and more details. Will the subpages be ones that were selected from the hamburger menu? so the hamburger menu is on the main page? – Mo'ath Mar 28 '19 at 21:47
  • yup, just added – Nicolas l Open to work Mar 28 '19 at 21:56
  • Using hamburgers may be suboptimal on desktop, but my personal opinion would be that to have two completely different nav systems between the top level and the children pages seems like it might end up being way more confusing. – qoba Mar 29 '19 at 4:57

Display the subpages' nav items vertically on the same side of the page where the hamburger menu items display.

This way you do not switch from a hamburger (vertical) design on the main page to a horizontal design on the subpages. Users will still find the nav items on the same side of the page. This keeps it as consistent as possible considering that you can do nothing about the hamburger menu.
