Tall Content

Top Menus Needed for Tall Content:

Installing Anchors | Anchor Help

For any pages where we can’t parse the content into separate pages, we require that a top menu be used with page anchor links, giving the user the option of jumping to the page content they are interested in or looking for.

The good news is that tall pages are not the usability roadblock they once were with the advent of mobile device access. Mobile users are used to swishing their finger tips across the screen to browse through content.

To make this all work better, a top menu is needed to help all users quickly access what they are looking for.

Top Menu Example

^ top

Installing Anchors From the Top Menu:

The proper way to install link anchors is to place them ABOVE the header for the top menu item so when the user jumps down into the content, they land just above the header, so they can read the header.

A typical mistake is to install the anchors on the same line as the header, and this usually makes it difficult to read the header since in most browsers, it can cut or ride the the top of the header text.

Here is the bad example:
