We have been trying to implement a web-based configuration system and we have been wondering about the correct design choice to layout the options.
Clicking "Add VLAN" opens a wizard modal which allows you to configure various parameters. Think of it like this: http://www.panopta.com/static/bootstrap-wizard-plugin/demo/demo.html [Although ours doesn't look as nice as this, yet]
The problem is that our config dialog contains many options to choose from, and it is inevitable that we would have to put scroll bars (or long dropdowns) in our modals should we continue doing this. I don't think this is nice at all.
Our alternative way is to put a new sub-header in our nav-bar that would dedicate a whole tab to what used to be in the wizard dialog. I am thinking of going with this. But will putting a wizard inside a tab be a good idea or should we go about organizing data in an alternative way? Any example webpages, layouts that do this will be extremely welcome.
