Features of FloridaPSC.com
Top navigation menu
One of the most prominent new features of the new site design is the
top navigation menu. To use the menu, roll your mouse over one of the sections in
the blue bar above and a drop down menu will appear below the section name. Then,
move your mouse down the list to select where you want to go. Alternatively, you
can click the section name to bypass the menu and access more information.
Side bar navigation menu
On the left of your screen is a new side bar that provides quick access to
searching, browsing the site map, and all pages that are in the section you are
currently under. To use the side bar navigation menu, roll your mouse over any of
the links and click them to navigate around the section. To change sections, click
the section name in the top navigation bar, or select a page under a section by
using the top navigation menu. For example: if you are viewing any page under the
"About the PSC" section, you will see a list of all pages in that section on the
left side bar navigation menu.
Just like leaving a trail of bread crumbs behind you, you can always find
your way back through the hierarchy of the site by looking at the new bread crumb
trail below the top navigation bar. Any time you are on a page other than the home
page, you can see where you are in relation to other pages in the site, and you
can click on any of them that are underlined links to navigate further up the hierarchy.
Above the side bar navigation menu on the left is a handy Quick Search text
box. This enables you to quickly search the entire PSC web site for any occurrences
of the text you enter. To perform a quick search, type in your search query in the
box and press the enter key. For more information on how to use search, please see
the help section of the search page, which can be found by clicking the "Advanced
Search" link below the Quick Search box.
The interactive site map is displayed in a pop-up panel. The web pages
are shown in a hierarchical structure reflecting the design and contents of our
website. A plus sign preceding a link indicates that it can be expanded to reveal
more links. Similarly, you can click on a minus sign to collapse the link.
A new feature to the home and consumer assistance pages is the addition of
a Slide Menu tool that enables you to more easily find what you are looking for
at floridapsc.com. Information found in the slide menu is grouped into sections,
and each section can be viewed by clicking on the section header. To hide all sections,
click the currently active section header. (Note: The icon
indicates links external to the PSC.)
A new news ticker at the bottom of the PSC home page displays
the 5 latest news release headlines in a ticker format. To view the news release,
click on the title while it is still on the screen. If you missed it, or you would
like to see all news releases, click the View All link below the ticker.
RSS or Really Simple Syndication is a relatively new internet technology
designed to provide subscribers with information on the latest updates to specific
web sites. RSS technology is commonly used in the news industry because subscribers
automatically receive the latest information updates. At the PSC, we provide RSS
feeds for our News Releases and Special Reports. Read our RSS
page for details.
