NAVIGATION

The new (June 2022), here present website “Albert Einstein in the World Wide Web” (einstein-website.de) runs on all common desktop and mobile devices. The respective navigation is similar.

1 Homepage of “Albert Einstein in the World Wide Web”

When navigating via pull-down menus, this website uses three different additional symbols (● ○ ▸).

2 Detail of the start page

When touching the mouse pointer of one of the subject areas, e.g. “Biography”, the respective menu will open (Fig. 2). The subpages in the menu always show  additional symbols (● ○ ▸).

If there is a filled circle in front of a subpage, but no other symbol, then clicking on it will open this subpage, e.g. “● Timeline”, and display the content.

If there is an unfilled circle in front of a subpage, then clicking on it will not show a reaction, since the subpage has no content, e.g. “○ Germany ▸” (Fig. 3). However, if an unfilled circle is used, there is always an arrow pointing to the right at the end of the subpage, e.g. “○ Germany ▸”. This arrow means NEXT. This means that when touched, another menu will open.

3 Detail of the start page

The filled circle in front of the subpage “● Ulm” shows that it has content, but it does not go any further. The term “○ Berlin ▸” shows that the subpage has no content, but it continues because of the arrow.

A special case is a filled circle in front of the subpage, followed by an arrow pointing to the right, e.g. “● Caputh ▸”. Here, the subpage has content, but it also continues because of the arrow.

To display the respective content, you have to click on the subpage.

On each page, there is the possibility to directly change the language (English / German).


When using the website, e.g. on a smartphone, the display of the start page changes to the extent that the subject areas are no longer displayed directly, but the Hamburg menu symbol (3 dashes symbol) is displayed.
