Site Updates: New Navigation Functionality [Beta]
As you undoubtedly know, we run a cutting-edge type of operation here.
That means there are various flashy gizmos on the back-end of this website to allow it to load every page and any image, any time.
But along with all these photos in every article comes the challenge of navigating easily around the site and down the page itself.
As we balance site load speed with ease of use, there are good changes and bad ones. We hope these two new navigation helpers will be in the “good” features bucket. They make reading articles a bit simpler, and less of a scroll-a-thon.
LEFT_SIDE – NAV HELPER
On the left-hand side of articles, you should now see a shaded box just behind the AddThis icons. This new feature has three parts:
— top element auto-scrolls to the top of the page
— middle element opens an article outline, and clicking there will take you to that part of the article. (This may or may not work properly in auto-generating a good menu for every article, particularly ones before July 2014.)
— bottom third of this bar will take you to the bottom of the page. handy if you are looking for the hard-coded share buttons, want to comment, or see the recommended articles in the footer of the page.
