confusing navigation

In the interview section the sidebar navigation lists the articles.
In the articles section the sidebar navigation lists the interview questions.

I am wondering if this was intentional to encourage visitors to check out other sections of the site but I found it confusing because when I clicked a category I moved to interviews instead of another article category.

It also means that there is no easy way to jump around inside the articles or interviews sections because once you go into a category there is no menu down the side you can use or the table menu along the top which is on the main pages.

The placement of the sidebar navigation is intentional so that from Articles section, user can jump to Interview section or vice-versa. Its heading also specify this.

On both category pages you can see different categories of that section in tabular format in the content area. For example

on http://www.dotnetfunda.com/articles/ShowCatArticle.aspx?category=23 page, the Articles categories are at the bottom of the page and on http://www.dotnetfunda.com/interview/ShowCatQuestion.aspx?category=109 the Interview categories are at the top of the page.

Please let us know if you couldn't find it or have further question.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Webmaster

Ok I understand where you are coming from. I didn't actually notice that the Article categories was included at the bottom of the page in the sub categories. I just noticed that it disappeared after you left the topmost articles page.

I don't find it useful to jump to the Interview section from the Articles section but that is just my personal opinion :)

The site is a great resource anyway and I think I should probably start to wrap up this whole feedback thing as I am now moving over into theoretical grey areas rather then solid, actionable bugs / feature requests.

Thank you. The left navigation gives additional links to those who might also be looking at some contents on some other or same topic.
