-Login Section on front page
-Users on site (registered/guests...)


I question the need for this, as it may be "putoff-ish" to visitors wanting to learn about and even use Coranto. I have always found front page logins to be very cliqueish, and I tend to steer clear, on that basis, alone.

Same with number of users on the site. That could hurt us, too...nothing like dropping by a site, and seeing there is one whole person there, or no one there...could send them away in droves...

I think we should leave "membership" or logins to here, the forum, or support section, exclusively...

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Agree with you, Jack. Let's separate the forums from the rest of the site.

There really isn't any need to have a login on the front page (or any page) unless you are going to provide additional content based on whether the user is logged in or not. Are you going to do that? If you are, is that content necessary?

I personally don't like sites that require a registration and login unless there is a very good reason for it. (security or the page is for a private group)

Jackanape,

I don't pay attention to those x numbers of users online displays. I never thought of using them a a way to determine if a site was useful. I judge that for myself based on the content and presentation.

There will not be any content that requries a login apart from the forum. So I agree, lets just skip it.

What info should be visible to the users that download addons? Currently I've set things up so that there is possibility for the following:

Addon Name
Author
Version nr.
Author Email
Author Webpage
Description Field for addon

Am i missing something? I'm thinking that there should also be a function for uploading updates for a specific addon, but I don't know how to do that. Right now I'm using multipart for the upload part and I could set up more than one upload field. Thats probably the easiest way. Any other ideas?

You could add a "forum topic" field, for referring to a thread in the forum discussing this addon (bug reports, info etc.)

And I would drop the "Author e-mail". No need to make email addresses publicly available when we don't need to (the author's address will very likely be inside the readme/documentation anyway)

I like this idea a lot. We can open a topic every time we upload a new addon, and reference it there.

:P
