When working with client websites (or your own), it important to make it easy to navigate content. In many cases, you will have a horizontal top (parent) level navigation menu and you might have drop down menus to drill down through child pages. This is helpful, but not easy to use, especially if your menu is several levels deep. In general, you should not rely only on drop down menus alone. It is bad UX design and frustrates users. So what can you do?
As noted in the example image above… You can have a sub-navigation element that displays dynamically based on the top (parent) level navigation that was selected!
Fortunately, there are a few plugins that will help you do just that. My current favorite is “BE Subpages Widget” by Bill Erickson.
But don’t limit yourself, there are several out there…
