But has anyone noticed that There is a growing problem with the user not
being able to find functionality within the present UI because most of
it is hidden within collapsed list. At present listing is starting to
get more out of hand as modules and their administration become more
complicated. This will be escalated by the addition of more core modules
which are not configurable and cannot be turned off in most cases. A UI
I nested list should never be more than 3 deep and 7 items per list.
after that the user starts getting lost and frustrated. I is very close
to CLI in that the user is expected to learn the structure and syntax
first before being able to give a command. The list admin structure is
counter intuitive and has absolutly no visual cues. Visual overview,
grouping and visual cues are the reason for the popularity of just about
every UI including the most popular, Windows.
In this particular case it is not a matter of themeing either. The child
pages are complete and have explainations within them. It it the UI
leading to them that is the bottleneck. There is no overview of the
structure of the admin UI.
