Subject RE: [Discuss]Apache wedbsite redesign

Both and couch have the same designs - where top frame is always visible.
I like that concept as well.

The design proposed by Sonny, is similar to what MS Tablet has, and I personally prefer that
- simply due to the fact the link/page you about to visit - has a description of what you
about to see. No room for guessing and clicking around - simply precise and straight to the

My personal opinion also that the background of Sonny original design with CS screenshot -
though a good idea - does not match with colors of the layout.

I guess we can put this to a vote on other mailing lists and settle it then.

These days I tend to prefer designs like couchdb has:

or something like twilio:

I feel that the proposed design is a bit too busy.

help in marketing CloudStack. I mentioned in that thread that I was playing around with the
idea of a redesign for the Apache CloudStack site. I did create a mockup and you can see the
design at the link below. I feel that this design is clean and will help new people onboarding
with CloudStack feel comfortable in exploring the site and learning more about CloudStack.
Also the site is more "marketing" friendly and helps in providing a good first impression
for those coming to learn about CloudStack for the first time.

that should be pursued. I can continue working on other pages if this does well, but will
need help in development. This could be part of an initiative to redesign a few other areas
of CloudStack such as the documentation, documentation portal, social media, and maybe the
wiki to provide a more consistent experience.
