Small things that need attention

Postby SrNupsen » Thu Feb 15, 2007 3:04 pm

Noticed a couple of things:

1. It's common practice to link the logo to the main page. This way, one can always reach the main page easily.

2. The "Navigation" box on the right looks different from inside and outside the forums. When viewing the forums it has a different styling applied to text, and also includes an "Addons" sub-choice under "Download" - this addons link leads to a page that says "Come back later" - why not link it to Dale's repository instead?

3. As Dale pointed out - the "Documentation" link in that same box should point to the docs wiki, and not corantodemo.net main page.

Noted from your last post. I have to seriously recode some things before I can fix this, and I'm not sure when I can do it...at this point, nobody bothers with feedback until I've already spent two days finalizing something, so I'm giving it a week to get some complete feedback. I can barely find the time for what I'm doing outside, so I can't afford to WASTE time anymore. Look for any fixes to take place on or around next Monday.

2. The "Navigation" box on the right looks different from inside and outside the forums.

Dale's repository is just a temporary situation.
The reason the forum version has the Addons link is because I have to hardcode it into the templates. If you can find the time, Sr, feel free to update the newsitem that says "come back later" with a suitable message directing traffic to Dale's site. Then we can activate the addon link in the main menu, as well...

3. As Dale pointed out - the "Documentation" link in that same box should point to the docs wiki, and not corantodemo.net main page.


Also noted from his last post. This is on my list of things to do next Monday.

Monday, everyone. We have until then to include any and all input. We need to release 1.25, and the site needs to be finalized by then.

Unfortunately, I don't know how the main site comes together, so I can't do any fixes or estimations outside of the forums. And the forums need to fit into the site. Honestly, the test site had been up for weeks, and no one said word one about the fixed-width issue until our man-hours had doubled. :evil:

My vote right now is to leave everything as is until we release 2.0.

That gives us time to come up with some serious solutions to the problems at hand.

It seems like we're falling into the same problem as the old site.

Aw, come on. I was the one ranting about the width, and only because I was too lazy to comment on it earlier. If it's too much, then postpone it! :D

We have a new community, a new site and (soon!) a new release. That isn't too bad, now is it?

LOL--yeah, not too bad.

Off to work for me, now!
