Subject Re: [commons-site] Alternate Horizontal Project Navigation
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2004 21:02:39 GMT
Is this a debate about whether commons is one project or many? I had thought
that there was general agreement to unify the commons site's look and feel.
Maybe I was wrong.

My solution to the problem you describe is to add extra links to the top
part of the navigation.
User guide
Team list

The standard maven part then follows. I certainally don't want to lose a
large proportion of the content area to navigation as well.

If you want to distinguish between project and leaving-project links on the
left, then we should use colours to theme the areas.
