I think I took what we discussed and enacted changes (because it would be easy enough to switch back if needed). Compare the menus between the current site and the previous one ( http://old.moprevention.org/ ). I was looking to clear up both the confusing multi-level items/children and to pare down the wrapped multi-line primary menu into a concise one-line primary menu with a more ‘housekeeping focused” top menu + search as is more typical of standard site design (and encouraged by the theme we are using).
Areas I felt were problematic:
Resulting menu putting both “resource” items under a single menu header and adding a line for each (the second being itself a menuheader)
I had moved the “About MPSI” item to the top menu where it is often found on other sites, but received feedback that it was causing confusion and so moved it back down to the primary menu. I think the result is still clean, intuitive, and organized. Please give me feedback if changes are needed.
Anything to further abbreviate the items under the Resources menu header would help with a problem (I had to reduce my font-size for the above screen-capture) that I anticipate may be experienced by some with the sub-menu items being cut-off visually when opened… possible suggestions, dropping the redundant “RESOURCES” and abbreviating “RESOURCES FOR PARENTS” to “PARENTS”, and abbreviating “CONSULTATIONS” to “CONSULTS” as every little bit helps pull the edge in from the right-hand margin. Another fix for this would be to reorder the menu-items so that the “RESOURCES” pull-down is positioned further left away from the right-hand margin.
