Skip Quick Links

“Use navigation mechanisms in a consistent manner.”

A consistent style of presentation on each page allows users to locate navigation mechanisms more easily but also to skip navigation mechanisms more easily to find important content. This helps people with learning and reading disabilities but also makes navigation easier for all users. Predictability will increase the likelihood that people will find information at your site, or avoid it when they so desire.

Examples of structures that may appear at the same place between pages:

  • Navigation bars
  • Primary content
  • Banners
  • Sidebars
