Redesign issue tracker

Ivan is hosting and maintaining the most up to date design of the new home page:

Pages to create

(if you want to take on a certain issue, just write your name behind it, or say so on the dev@website mailinglist, discussion should also take place at this list)

  • At the moment only a main page has been created, content still needs to be developed for the other pages, in answer to all 5 action statements. Additionally, some new tabs have been introduced that also need a new landing page. See Content.

Issues with the new homepage (CSS/HTML)

Please add any HTML/CSS issues you discover with the new homepage to this list.

Internet Explorer 6 Issues

  • The footer does not automatically move to the bottom of the page. This can be fixed easily, but requires hacks - currently everything below the footer's 130px designated space is white.
  • The tabs (Search, Change Language, Log In) have 100% width and display badly (screenshot). This will either require hacks or an alternate JS solution if IE6 support is desired.

Main page

  • Enrich the current proposal with icons, e.g.:
  • Make the marketing block more flexible (so it can feature longer text as well)

  • Current wording doesn't mention that OOo is free.


  • We do not have a staging server, so we need to carefully introduce each element step by step
    • inst.css and tigris.css needs to be cleaned up (at least removal of !important declarations)
    • The new header needs new div blocks which need to be introduced (proposal, make them online soon, as 'display:none' blocks
