Ideas for 2.0

I am always trying to think of ways to take stuff off my front page but still make every thing easy to get to and understand.
1 of the problems I find with users and the site is the menu.
With no changes it's kinda long. (And just wait till you get some plugs ins)
And if your the Admin it's really long.
So I was thinking of using Blains Idea on the forum menu or the admins submissions page.
And mix it with the menu program.

(the problem with using this is when you make a menu with sub menus. It refreshes the hole page. And new people don't notice the new sub menu and think the site is just bouncing you back to the main page. Also they can turn off the box with the menu in it.)

But before I did all that I wanted to bring it up here and mabe get you all to put this idea in GL.

Just make the links.

Home

Admin menu>> (this is were the admin stuff is.)

Your programs>> (things like calender, members list, file upload, extra go here)

Your Account>>(All prefs and account info here)

Log Out (take a guess)

The 3 links with >> open to a page showing the first default page and links at the top to each added page.

That way the user can see and understand whats going on and take a lot of unneeded links off the front page.
Also make it were people making plugs can easly put there needed page in with out adding more links to the main page.

So what do you think?
