Disclosure arrow next to category makes me think of breadcrumbs

i just realized that one of the reasons i found the navigation bar to be confusing at first is that the right-pointing arrow on the categories menu button

nav bar

made me think the rest of the nav was actually a breadcrumb trail of some sort.

I’ve noticed the same thing a few months ago and got a reasonable explanation by @codinghorror
I too find it confusing and unexpected.

it’s interesting that where he writes “i like that it points to the rest of the nav” is the very reason i find it confusing. a series of right-pointing arrows in a nav means “breadcrumbs” to me.

It does mean breadcrumbs, try it in a subcategory. Covered in the previous topic on this matter.
