Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-384) Documentation menu unintuitive
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 09:32:27 GMT

Argh...  Stupid cut and past, and edit.    This should be read ""It's also strange to see
some leaf having no sibbling"  of curse !

Concerning the navigation, I just found what you described 5 minutes ago.  I found it accidentaly
by cliking on it.

And you are right, when you know the small arrows allows you to extend collapse the menus,
it becomes more natural to have pages associated with the intermediate node.

So to rephrase the issue :  
It should be more intuitive that the arrows allows to expand the menu.  Maybe using a stronger
color on the arrows would put more foccus on it.

> The documentation menu is a tree menu.   That natural and nice.  However, it's is quiet
unexpected to have a page associated with the 'non leaf' nodes.  It's also strange to see
some leaf having no children.  The reader is asking himself 'why place this additional level'.
> I think it should be better to have the intermediate nodes only used to expend (or collapse)
the tree menu, and to move the page associated with the intermediate nodes to a leaf.  That
would also accelarate the navigation to a low level leaf as no intermediate page will have
to be loaded.
