In addition, the site uses a sticky navigation bar on both the left and right sides of the container. The navigation bar is a simple arrow pointing left or right. When we hover over the arrow, we can see which section of USA Today we’ll land on once we click. In this sense, the navigation bar reminds me of reading a magazine or newspaper, turning one page after another. The user could scroll to the top of the container and use the navigation bar there instead, but the sticky navigation bar allows us to turn to the next section of the site without having to first scroll all the way back up to the top of the page.
Just about every page includes a slide show, as well. Users can flip through pictures and decide which ones they want to look at and which ones they don’t. And not only can the users click on the small side arrows to get to the next photos, but they can also look at the bar across the bottom and simply click on a photo there to see a larger version of the picture. They don’t have to click on a slideshow and then wait for the slideshow to end before moving on to something else.
