To our readers:
Philly.com is testing a new way to find content on our site, and we want to know what you think.
As you can see here, we are beta-testing new navigation for the top of Philly.com’s news and features pages. We’re excited about it for several reasons:
- Our new topper uses large drop-down menus, helping readers click directly to content within Philly.com. Now, readers can quickly find popular blogs, stories and inside sections from almost any page on Philly.com.
- The topper itself is much shallower, which allows us to feature content higher on our pages. Important stories, chats, or videos can be linked from the navigation bar itself. The topper has a simpler design that lets our stories take center stage.
- Registered users can sign in directly from any page of the site. Meanwhile, common search terms are easier to find, just one click from any page of the site.
We’ve made a few other tweaks to improve the experience - we eliminated that heavy brown bar on the right side of our pages, for example.
