AirgunArena Navigation

When viewing any page on AirgunArena, you'll find three main navigation elements:

  1. The menu on the left, the sidebar gives you access to specific pages in AirgunArean and access to the Toolbox.
  2. At the top of the page are links (often called tabs) which relate to the page currently displayed: its associated discussion page, the version history, and—most notably—the edit link.
  3. In the top right corner you'll find user links; as an anonymous user, you'll see a link to create an account or log in (they are the same page). As a logged-in user you have a collection of personal links, including ones to your user page and preferences.

Sidebar

The sidebar is displayed on the left edge of the page below the AirgunArena logo. The sidebar gives you access to pages such as Blogs, Forums, Groups, Articles and more. It also gives you access to the Toolbox.

Logo

Clicking on the AirgunArena logo brings you back to the Home page, regardless of where you may be at the time.

Toolbox

The Toolbox contains a selection of links which vary depending on what type of page you are currently viewing. What Links Here takes you to a special page that lists the pages on AirgunArena which contain a link to the current page. This is helpful when you are looking for pages of related information.

The Special Pages lists many selections, of which you will likely be most interested in Recent Changes. This file lists the names and information about files that have recently been edited/created.

Page Tabs

The page tabs are displayed at the top of the article to the right of the site logo. These tabs allow you to perform actions or view pages that are related to the current article. The available default actions include: viewing, editing, and discussing the current article. The specific tabs displayed on your pages depend on whether or not you are logged into AirgunArena and have user privileges. On Special pages only the special tab is displayed.

User Links

The user links are displayed at the top far right of the article. These links allow the logged-in user to view and edit their user page and AirgunArena preferences. Additionally, the links allow the user to quickly access their contributions to the AirgunArena and to logout.

For anonymous users, the user links is replaced by a link to the AirgunArena login page.
