    Howdy,
    I'm designing the front end fro my auction manager system and on my main frontpage, I have the popular "left hand button bar" for navigation. I've read that consistency should remain throughout your site but, if a user logs in to the actual auction manager system and the navigation were to change slightly (to give system options to the user), do you think it would be a major problem?

    Would it be too confusing to the visitor?

    Thoughts appreciated!

    Hi,

    I really can't see that being a problem if the navigation bar wasn't to change too dramatically and I really don't think there is a better way of doing it too give logged in users extra options. It really depends on how computer literate your target audience will be but I am sure even people with very basic computer knowledge would not be confused by small changes to a navigation bar. Never underestimate your visitors. Many big sites including Sitepoint have changes to the navigation bar depending where you are in the site.

    That's cool, thanks Fletch.

    To be honest, I didn't really think that it would be a problem, just needed a bit of reassurance.

    Thanks again,
