Provide more intuitive navigation option
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Currently, navigating around WriteFreely takes some getting used to. We should provide the option for a more intuitive navigation scheme.


The current nav scheme encourages writing first -- everything is built around this mindset. However, some writers might value familiarity over learning a new, writing-optimized flow. We should support these users.


Add a new [app] config value, like simple_nav. When true, we should do the following:

  • Keep About, Reader, etc. links at the top of the page on backend user pages
  • / route should go to Blogs page, not editor
  • There should be a button specifically for creating a new post
