Structure of pages

The website is divided into nine zones, offering a quickly identifiable structure throughout the navigation. In detail, the nine zones are, from top to bottom and from left to right:

  • Header: contains logos, titles, links to related sites, and connection tools.
  • Breadcrumb trail: allows the user to track where they are and browse between different levels.
  • ToolBar: for selected items (visible in Active Elements). This bar is displayed only when necessary.
  • Tools: a box on the right frame of the site, accessible only to registered users. It gives different options depending on which view you are using.
  • Explorer: lets you browse among manipulated objects and to select search criteria.
  • Active Elements: contains the object that is being created or modified.
  • Available Elements: elements that have been retrieved by browsing and/or a search in the Explorer zone.
  • Notifications: displays the latest information published on the website.
  • Footer: includes the legal information about the site and its partners, as well as quick access to the most visited parts of the site.

The most important zones will be explained more fully at the various levels where they appear.
