On Monday, April 18, 2016 there will be a short outage of the previous generation template. All sites that use templates from designer.wsu.edu will be affected. IT will start work on a server starting at 7:30 am, and the outage should only take 10-20 minutes.
This will not affect any site using the current Spine template.
An emerging design trend hides a website’s navigation when viewing the desktop version. The menu is activated by clicking on an icon which design insiders call the “hamburger”.
The hamburger is useful for mobile sites where the screen real estate is small since it hides the navigation until the visitor taps it. However, using it on desktop versions presents usability challenges. This is an example of “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”.
