Users want to access a wide variety of information
Create several sub-sites, one per topic, with one overall home-page
The number of topics is limited to 10.
What is the role of the home-page? How to design a home-page?
Navigating between portals. Horizontally showing the sub-sites followed by the logo and main sub-site navigation. Usually a 3 column layout.
From top to bottom:
1. sub-site navigation
3. main navigation and main content
4. right column for contextual or shared stuff
The home-page's main function is to guide people to one of the sub-sites.
Use "preview blocks" that show what is going on in the specific sub-sites.
Usually the home-page also has a feature article and a list of headlines.
