Develop the functionality that allows an editor to define whether the horizontal and in section navigation is persistent when a user scrolls down some content on the website, so that they do not have to scroll up to navigate to a different section/page.

Stories

AS A USER I want to see the horizontal navigation to stick to the top of the browser window if it is set to be so SO THAT I can still see it when I scroll below the fold.

AS AN EDITOR I want to see the horizontal navigation to stick underneath the default Haiku Manager bar if it is set to be so SO THAT I can still see it when I scroll below the fold.

AS AN ADMIN I want to be able to choose whether this functionality is turned on or off on my site SO THAT I can ensure that I have control over the look and feel of my site.


Submission


What are you trying to do that our product is not able to support?

The title bar menu should remain visible at the top of the page as a user scroll down the page.

What is the reason that you need to be able to do this?

This will improve navigation of the site, meaning that users don't have to scroll back to the top of the page to visit other sections.

What is the impact of you not being able to do this?

Website seems 'behind the times' compared to many modern sites, and less user-centric compared to many others. Poor ease of navigation may also increase bounce rate when we want to keep visitors on the site.

At the Oversight Committee some personal preferences were aired about persistent menus, so we thought it wold be worth investigating the general views on usability:

Views were generally positive – think that it aids navigation. Personal preference. However needs to be done well and can’t take up too much space. Issue of how it will function on mobile devices. Shouldn’t be used as an excuse for long pages. Some people think they might be distracting and take people away from longer pages. Difference between horizontal and vertical sticky menus? Irritation of having things following you around the page.
