The goal of this issue is to redesign the way the menus work in Piwik, to improve the overall usability of Piwik and discoverability of features.
There are several issues with this design:
Administration, etc. (such as the Github top menu on this page)
I need to update issue description after @tsteur finished improving user & admin menus!
User & Admin menu is done...
Can't wait to have a nice left menu!
Proposed next steps:
Who would make the mockups? And yes, we should make the left menu default for new Piwik users and probably for all users. Hopefully we won't have to maintain two versions as the top menu does not bring many (or any) advantages.
Waiting for mockups from Rafal, maybe in couple weeks we will have an update.
Menus are different also by screen reader rendering. Looks like could be useful using real html5 navigation tags
In order to close this issue we need to first close the following issues:
FYI I've updated about 28 FAQs and 11 User guides to change the instructions after we have changed how menus work. eg. renamed "Settings" -> "Administration" and few other similar changes so the FAQs and user guides are up to date with our new menu structure.
