Hi all!

I personally don't like such menus under the other menus.
The top-menus are "starter" and the sidemenus are bringing deeper
The main text will 'always' pop up and down and that will make the side
restless. With this second menubar the most pages will get a scrollbar.

+1 and a very important POV imho

Mmh, I don't get this point - it usually depends on what frame gets
extended when adding a scrollbar. If a page jumps, then the site design
is weird (and this is independent from any menu concept). Or, maybe I
simply don't get it ...

And think of a third level as seen here:
Then you will have three of this menubars. No text will be on the
visible page. (Ok, this is a little bit exaggerated ;-))

Indeed ;-) I'd rather try to get rid of the sidebar completely.


Another nice side-effect is the search functionality (once being
available) is well integrated and also provides visual feedback if used
(usually, search leads to somehow "nowhere" on other pages).
Maybe we can put the search on the right top.

Search is a common functionality the site should have, the frame when
active is not necessary imho.

Oh, here I'd like to jump in - it is :-) When looking on other site
designs (neither shops, nor other databases - they do have a different
approach), people get sometimes lost if they start the search. Because
the search functionality applies across all site content, and all
hierarchical ordering (menu) doesn't help here. So it is required to
"deactivate" the menu - but this might mean being lost. So the frame is
just visual helper to explain this "mode change".

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! Great to see that we start to also
improve the visual appearance and the interaction concepts. Let's go on,
please :-)
