One of the important areas on the eBay Web site is the site header - the bar at the top of almost every eBay page with the Buy, Sell, and other links. We’ve been working on the header to make it easier to search for items and to navigate around the site.
Here are the key changes that will be introduced in the next few days:
- Quick access to eBay categories -- A new “categories” link will be included in the header. When you hover over it with your mouse, a full list of eBay categories will be displayed, letting you quickly go right to the one that interests you.
- Bigger Search Box Front & Centre -- One thing we’ve heard consistently through our research is that members want a bigger, more obvious search box. This enlarged search box will be available in the middle of the header, directly below your name when you are signed in.
- Quick links -- The standard Buy, Sell, My eBay, Community, and Help links will be moved over to the upper right-hand corner. Similar to the categories link, when you hover over these links, a short list of related links will be displayed. For example, if you hover over the Community button, you’ll see links to the Discussion Boards, Answer Centre, etc.
- A Fresh New Look -- Last but not least, we felt it was time to give the header a fresh new look. We hope you like what you see and find the navigational tools overall more useful.
