Purpose of Navigation View

    Can someone please explain (in simple language) why using
    the Navigation view to create webpages in FP is preferable
    to just creating links between pages. Or is it? Our campus
    website uses a Navigation tree but I have trouble with the
    hierarchy and adding buttons with links. A friend just
    links all the pages together so that on his Navigation
    view, all you see is the Homepage box. But this seems like
    a much more simple way to create a webpage. Does this make
    any sense?
