IMPACT OSS database content can be explored using several different

  • menus (that mostly link lists of individual content items stored in the database (such as recommendations or actions)), and
  • content links (that link to individual content items either from a list view or another single item view).

Except on the welcome page, IMPACT OSS offers three levels of navigation for exploring and managing the database content (for a full list of available views please see Pages):

  1. Primary navigation for exploring and managing the principal content (see Features). Also includes the overview page for exploring the categories (see below) and search page to quickly search the entire database
  2. Secondary navigation for exploring and managing editorial pages, as well as user accounts. This also includes links for user registration and login.
  3. Additional navigation and filtering for additional options where content is grouped (e.g. the different category types (taxonomies) that are part of the overview page) or where content can be filtered
