After a long period working with PHP, I'm now entering in Zend Framework lands. I'm creating a small website and I got a question. This is regarding the main (global) site navigation. I saw that Zend have a component called Zend_Navigation. After read other programmers comments about this component on the Web, I have some questions, and I will thank you guys if you can clarify this for me.
- The site will have about ten navigation pages. These pages are simple pages, like "About", "Products", "Register", "Contact"... So, should I use the Zend_Navigation to create my navigation menu, even with this simple structure?
- To a small or medium site, which are the benefits of using the Zend_Navigation?
I'm sorry about the newbie question. I was ever using hard coded menus (written in HTML and embedding it with PHP include() in my pages), and now with Zend I think I need clarify some points against this old method.
