NEW FEATURE ALERT!
We’re very excited to announce that now available to everyone as part of your core platform is the new Community Anchor Link Navigation Bar. The Navigation Bar sits directly below the header image in each of your uConnect Communities -- it should look familiar to you, as the design is the same as the Hero Navigation bar that sits below the rotating banner on your front page.
The Community Navigation Bar is meant to direct users to the various content sections on the page, show visitors up front what they can engage with on the page, and reduce time spent scrolling. This new feature will enhance your visitors user experience and help give users an idea of what to expect once they land on the page; the Navigation Bar is the first thing that users will see. It will also serve as an incentive for you to add more content without worrying about the time users will have to spend scrolling on your Communities.
If you’re interested in enabling the Community Navigation Bar on your platform, just enter your email address below and a member of our Support team will get in touch shortly.
Once we’ve reached out, we will work with you to:
- Pick the call to action that appears on each block of the hero navigation
- The color of each section on the Hero Navigation
- You can use any icon you supply us with as long as it’s high resolution and transparent
Below is a video demo on what the new feature looks like and how it functions within your platform.
Welcome to the newest members of the uConnect community! Great things are ahead.
