The new version of donnayoung.org went live today. The new version has a menu system that I want to briefly explain. Please look at the image shown here.
This image shows the Term & Subject planner page. Please notice the arrows, they help demonstrate the path of the menu. The path to this page is:
Homeschool Planner >>> Lesson Plan Forms >>> Term & Subject
That is pretty much it. Now you should go and see it work. Go to my website here: https://donnayoung.org (home page) and click on Homeschool Planner, then on Lesson Plan Forms, you will see the menu work.
Hover your mouse over the items in the menu and the menu will change colors.
Here is what the colors mean and I will use pictures to help me explain.
In the top menu, there are grayed out items and one blue item. The Blue item is the “active” category. If you click on Homeschool Planner, the menu item will become blue and a second row will appear and the links in the second row will also be blue.
. . . . . .
Hover Mouse in Second Row
Hover the mouse in the Blue areas and they will turn Red. This mean the area is hot or rather the red links are directly related to Homeschool Planner – that category which you are currently in. (the hot term was less wordy). If you hover the mouse outside of the hot area, the links turn gray.
. . . . . .
Now that Lists is selected, you are in a Sub-Category of Homeschool Planner. Homeschool Planner is now gray with blue words, and the rest of the second row is gray with blue words. Homeschool Planner, the main category is a darker gray so that it stands out.
SO now that you are in Lists, you see the selections in List – (book lists, goals, book key, checklist, … ) all of these pages offer some sort of List. Let’s put the logic behind us and go back to COLOR.
If you hover your mouse over the 3rd row, you will see that the items turns RED, that is because now they are the hot ones. They are all directly related to Lists.
. . . . . .
Select Goals and Objectives
When you are on a content page, the link will be white. The Content pages are where you will find the printables and articles. The first row pages and some of the second row pages are Information Pages which act like a Home Page for each of the categories.
In some cases there will be a 4th level, but I won’t go into that. If you visit donnayoung.org, you will eventually run across some 4th level pages.
There it is, the new DY menu, briefly explained.
