    Arf! Arf! (Howdy! Again)

    I recently moved my site to this Pinboard theme. One of the main reasons is for the collapsible primary menu and its ease of use on smart phones. Here’s a link:

    One of the most difficult decisions for me to make personally is WHAT, WHERE, and HOW MANY menu items to display for the viewer. I have left other themes because they would not allow 3 levels of menu items, and if they did, displayed them horribly. Pinboard does a great job.

    My current decision is: what to display, and what not. I’ve created a weird site that is a combination of ENTERTAINMENT and INFORMATION. It is not something that I planned in the beginning…it just evolved.

    If anybody would like to provide feedback on how I can improve the user experience using this theme…please offer it. I’m trying to please a Male, Female, Global Audience.

    A young woman in her early twenties recently told me that the word “Tags” confused her in the Primary Menu (she is NOT techy) and suggested that I use the word “Categories”. Does anyone agree with that, or not? Should I use BOTH “Categories” and “Tags” in the Primary Menu?

    Any other thoughts? (You’ll notice that I prefer Full-Width pages on my site.)

    I suggest you remove the Tags item completely and turn it into a sidebar or footer widget. I would also make WordPress Themes and WordPress Plugins as two main categories and then divide each in Free and Premium.

    Those sound like good ideas…Thank You!

    It will make it look more professional.
