Users creating a link did not know how to get the path in order to create a menu link.
The issue of users having different content types with the same content name is still not addressed.
User interface changes
This patch changes the UI for creating menu items by adding a maximum of 10 matches in an autocomplete form element instead of a plain text field.
No API changes to date.
Original report by dcmistry
I conducted a usability study in March 2011 around content management and menu creation.
Participants were asked to create an 'About us' page and link it to the main menu. Participants who explicitly tried to create a link, could not complete the task successfully as they did not know how to get the path to create a menu link. Here is a link to a clip from the study: http://blip.tv/file/5108687
Comments from participants:
“I have to find the path. I don’t know how to find the path.” (P1)
“I am not really sure [how to find the path].” (P2)
