I had someone ask me if it’s possible to add a link under the header (or maybe in the menu), that would take a visitor to a site directly to the sidebar when viewing the site on a mobile device (rather than having to scroll down…)
It’s a good idea actually.
I try to always add a skip link via simple hooks in genesis_before_header to take keyboard users and screenreaders past the navigation and straight to the page content – you could add one to take people to the sidebar as well. These could be positioned off-screen and activated on focus for larger screens and visible the whole time on mobiles.
<ul id="skip"> <li><a href="#content">skip to content</a></li> <li><a href="#sidebar">skip to sidebar</a></li> </ul>
Guess you could also get fancier by checking to see if there’s a sidebar on the page before adding that link…
