Navigation

Main Audience-based Navigation

All pages have audience-based main navigation (for diners, for operators) located on the top right corner of the page. On the home page, these two navigation items are also available in the center of the page. Use this navigation to reach the two main sections of the website. Each of these main sections in turn has its own main and sub navigation that provide access to the pages within that section.

Secondary Navigation Bar

All pages have a secondary navigation bar beneath the main audience-based navigation in the top right corner of each page. Use this navigation to access site wide content and functionality: Home, About Us, FAQ, Help, Contact Us, and Site Map.

Assistance Links (Breadcrumbs)

All pages have assistance links (breadcrumbs) on the top of each web page. The breadcrumbs show the hierarchical path from the home page down to the current page. It is designed to give you a sense of your current location relative to the website structure. You can also use it to jump to any desired higher-level web page in one click.

Footer and Back-to-Top Links

All pages have a back-up text link navigation for the primary navigation on the bottom of each page. The footer is designed to enable you to access a primary navigation web page without scrolling to the top of the page.
