NAVIGATION HELP

    Overview

    There are a number of ways to navigate around the site and this section steps through tools to move around and familiarise yourself with the content.

    Also known as Main Page or Front page

    There are two very quick and simple ways to go back to the home page :

    1. By clicking on the 'VIHASA ' logo on in the top left of your screen.

    2. By clicking on 'Values in Healthcare...' at the very top of the navigation bar on the left of your screen Home2.jpg

     

     These two features are to be found on every single page throughout the site.

    Navigation Tree

    A tree view or an outline view is a user interface element that presents a hierarchical view of information. Each item (often called a branch or a node) can have a number of sub-items.

    An item can be expanded to reveal sub-items, if any exist, and collapsed to hide sub-items.

    Expanding nodes

    • The navigation tree on is located on the left hand side of any page. 
    • You can expand any node that has a  ►  sign  next to it. 
    • Clicking it open will reveal the pages that live under the parent page

    Hovering the cursor over a page tab will bring up a pop-up of the full page title; this is particularly useful where, due to restrictions of maximum display size, some titles are cut short.

    Visiting pages

    When you've found the page you are browsing for, click on it to navigate there. When that page loads, you will notice the navigation tree automatically opens up to that page showing all of the pages it has as siblings as well as any of the nodes that might be its descendants.


     Navigation Tabs

    Navigational Tabs are used in a number of ways :

    1. To organise a single point of  access for pages otherwise spread over the site; as on the  Home page.
    2. To organise a sub menu.

    Find the required tab and click to navigate to the relevant page.

    Breadcrumbs

    The term Breadcrumbs or breadcrumb trails comes from the trail of breadcrumbs left by Hansel and Gretel in the popular fairytale.

    It is a navigation aid that appear horizontally across the top of each page,  just above  title bar/page header and  allows users to keep track of their locations within the site. A greater-than sign (>) serves as hierarchy separator. 

    Breadcrumbs provide :

    1. links back to the parent pages of the current one.
    2. a trail for the user to follow back to the starting or entry point : Home page > Section page > Subsection page

    For access , click on  any page along the trail.
