Padre homepage navigation needs refactoring

Reported by: Sewi Owned by: szabgab
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: website Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


The Padre homepage currently has:

  • Home
  • Screenshots
  • Documentation
  • Download
  • Developers
  • Translators
  • Get Involved
  • Contact us
  • About

The "About" is wraped on a 2nd menu line which looks bad.

Suggestion for a new menu:

  • Home
  • Download
  • Support
    • Documentation
    • Getting help (was: Contact us)
  • Screenshots
  • Team
    • Developers
    • Translators
    • Link to "Get Involved"
  • Get Involved
  • News (was: About)

Reducing the menu by two top-level options would save us the second line.

Support will be one page containing the content of "Documentation" and "Contact us" all together, but might be split if there is more content in the future.

Developers and Translators will stay two pages. "Team" will be a new one with two paragraphs, one for each group. Each paragraph will contain the text block and name list from the detail page, the names will be links like they are now.

About has to be renamed, because it's name has nothing to do with the content of the page. The current URL of about.html should redirect to the new news.html

I'd like to start the changes soon if noone complains :-)

how about a new name for About

How about TimeLine? then it will match with the wiki, but in a less techie way (content)

And another note, we don't want to leave any page 404. So we only move a page if there is a very good reason for that and we have to setup redirection from the old name to the new page.
