The Usability report twice mentioned adding an expand/reduce button to the blue left frame title bars instead of having the vertical tab strip:
#38 Add Site Map Heading Bar with reduce button
#22 Allow clicking on blue heading bar of Left Site Tree to reduce it:
Do you guys agree with this change?
The one downside I can think of is that there will be less vertical space in the left frame because the 3 title bars of Site Map, History, & Reports will need to be shown at all times in order to show each of their expand/reduce arrow buttons.
Two additional benefit is we will no longer need to use any of the images in cms/images/sidetabs and I think that it will be easier to read the section titles.
However, this change would be quite different from the old way of doing things so we will need to make the show/hide arrow very obvious so that users who are used to the side tabs don't get confused.
Should I work on removing the sidways tabs and adding expand/reduce buttons as suggested in the usability report?
Thanks for your feedback,
