Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

			<h1>Priority+ Navigation</h1>
			<p>The <a href="http://justmarkup.com/log/2012/06/19/responsive-multi-level-navigation/">Priority+ pattern</a> was coined by <a href="http://justmarkup.com/">Michael Scharnagl</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/justmarkup">@justmarkup</a>) to describe navigation that exposes what&#8217;s deemed to be the most important navigation elements and tucks away less important items behind a &#8220;more&#8221; link. The less important items are revealed when the user clicks the &#8220;more&#8221; link.</p>
<h3>Pros</h3>
<ul>
<li><strong>Relatively simple to implement</strong> &#8211; The logic required to execute this technique isn&#8217;t terribly complicated. It&#8217;s just a basic show/hide toggle to reveal the hidden navigation items.</li>
<li><strong>(hopefully) exposes the most accessed features</strong> &#8211; it&#8217;s hopefully revealing the three or four things the majority of users frequently access anyways.</li>
</ul>
<h3>Cons</h3>
<ul>
<li><strong>Hides potentially important nav items</strong> &#8211; what you may deem most important may not be what&#8217;s important to your users. Burying nav items means having to make some assumptions, and while it hopefully works out for most users, it might also piss some people off.</li>
<li><strong>Doesn&#8217;t work well with multi-level navigation</strong> &#8211; The priority+ pattern seems good for navs that have a lot of items at the same hierarchy level, but unfortunately it doesn&#8217;t seem to solve the sub-nav dilemma.</li>
</ul>

<li><a href="http://www.wm.edu/">William and Mary</a></li>
<li><a href="http://m.usatoday.com/sports">USA Today&#8217;s mobile site section pages</a> don&#8217;t follow this exactly, but expose the most important categories by default and an arrow or swipe reveals the remaining navigation items. Pretty slick.</li>
