As we mentioned in our first article of the series, MERRY JANE is organized into two primary sections: content and utility. All of the options on the left hand of the top navigation menu relate to the content portion of the site. Users can choose to browse all the content on the site via the main homepage (all articles together organized by publishing date) or select a particular category by choosing from the navigation bar.
Content is organized into five primary categories: Culture, News, Food, Style and Videos. Each category highlights the content within that specific area of the cannabis industry. The ‘Videos’ category includes all other categories and serves as a directory for all MERRY JANE Originals and other video content.
While on the homepage, you can also hover over a particular category link in the navigation to see the five most popular articles in that particular category.
To see the most popular articles on the entire site, check out the ‘Most Popular’ article list on the right side of the homepage below the Featured Article carousel.
When viewing an article or video, one of the first things that you will notice is the addition of a grey navigation and share bar.
