We have designed a new menu interface for navigating the forum. The main goal of this update is to make the key forum sections more accessible and visible.
I wanted to post the design concepts here to ask for any feedback, suggestions, or design tweaks before we start the coding.
The 6-item horizontal gold menu will be replaced by a vertical menu down the left hand side of the forum.
This menu can be collapsed/minimised to regain the full width thread experience.
The new vertical menu will cater for more forum categories as the forum grows and develops.
There is also a new design layout for the classroom section for students who want personalised support, feedback, or a group learning experience.
Check out the new designs below.
