I currently have a menu bar across the top with dropdowns and additional dropdown/popouts for the sub-subcategories. However, These get in the way of the content and I'd rather the menu be on the left - I think it might be more user friendly.
I'm thinking that for this complex of a menu something similar to windows file menu might be good. The kind with the file icons and page icons and little guide lines.
Anyone know of a good example of this type of menu, have any good ideas for building one that is friendly-compatible-visible, or have any better ideas?
Since there probably already is a sitemap, it's the quickest way to drill down. The way I do it is to allow a brief 1.5 second pause, and then the hover will open the next level down in the treeview (I don't actually use a treeview, just an indented sitemap listing). Since one sitemap probably won't do, the generator creates multiple sitemaps at different directories where required, and these links together. It's a very, very quick way to get into the site, to a particular page.
Of course, this suggests the use of an iframe, because these sitemaps are stand-alone hard coded pages, which don't have to be viewed in a little box (that's just convenient, you could literally link to the actual site map pages, full page). But one could also use object and load it with "data" instead of an iframe's "src". IE might have problems. But FF and Opera will work with that.
