Should a webpage have Navigation both at the top and bottom of a page?
I have a page which lists summaries of news articles, and want to keep things as clean as possible.
While slightly more accessible, I am wondering if having a navigation control at the top of the page is really necessary?
Here is a mockup of what I mean...
My thinking is this...
A user is more likely to need to navigate to the next page after he/she has scrolled down to the end of the page.
I guess it is a matter of perspective...
What do you think?
It's also a matter of personal preference I guess. I myself prefer having it at the top as well. I hate having to scroll to the bottom of the page if I already know I want/need to browse 2 pages back or forth.
Where I am ultimately going with my OP is this...
If I also add in Filtering and Sorting, then is it too much to have all three at the top of the page?
Here is a sample...
(BTW, I would not put Filtering and Sorting at the page bottom.)
Not for me
(I think I'd be taken aback to find Filtering and Sorting at the top but not a page navigation option alongside them.)
So do I understand you - and Guido - in that have Filtering, Sorting and Navigation at the Page Top and then just Navigation at the Page Bottom would be an acceptable combination?
Okay, thanks TechnoBear and Guido!
