Anyone has any suggestions to avoid double dropdown for navigation for a mobile app ( i.e. dropdown 1: main menu nav, dropdown 2: secondary nav within a particular page content. ) Just trying to think of any unique ways to navigate or break up the redundancy of dropdowns by having a secondary nav behave in a different way. Just looking for suggestions. TYIA
Our solution on TED isn't perfect (for one thing, it's behind the dreaded hamburger menu), but it at least avoids the double dropdown issue. If you visit TED.com, then tap on the hamburger in the upper left, you'll see a slide-out site menu. Because some sections of our site are very deep, tapping on a section like About—one of the deepest sections in our site—opens a sub-menu. Then tap on, say Our Organization and you'll see available sections there.
Again, far from perfect, but it allowed us to get a very deep site into one menu without using a ton of real estate.
