Choose a Design Structure
First, you must select a design that works well for the content you'll include on your site. Use the guidelines below to choose a horizontal or vertical navigation structure.
Is a VERTICAL navigation a good fit for you?
A vertical navigation is a good fit for you if you have more than 6 navigation items or if each item is longer than 1-2 words. You should choose this option if your number of navigation items could grow over time.
Is a HORIZONTAL navigation a good fit for you?
If you have a small number of short navigation items (maximum 6, of no more than 1-2 words each), a horizontal navigation structure could work for you. Many people prefer the look of horizontal navigation bars, but they are more limiting.
