Subject [WWW] two questions about DL button on home page...
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 17:54:39 GMT
Hi all--

Right now, when I click on "I want to download OpenOffice", I don't the
expanded green button I was getting last week, for example. I had made some
changes to this a week or so ago, but the changes that I incorporated, and
the green button itself were just fine after that. I think my current
experience may be due to a problem with getting the mirror link but I need
to confirm this in a bit.

So, question #1.
I would like someone else to try this and let the list know what your
results are -- are you getting the expanded green button or being shuttled
to /download/index.html instead?

Question #2. If you're not getting the DL button, or even if you are, how
strongly do you feel about having  the expanding button, or would  just a
jump  to /download/index.html be just as good?

I know there was a LOT of discussion when this design first emerged, but,
it would much much easier for changes in DL code -- Rob's proposal  for
unification of yesterday for instance -- if we could just dump this
"internal" DL button on the home page. Yes, the buttons are the same to the
eye anyway on both the main index.html page and /download/index.html but
the html implementation is different, different enough that both these
areas need to be changed when changes are needed. Additionally, dumping the
"generated" button on the home page would allow us to standardize more
easily on incorporating the DL button  -- the code used on
/download/index.html -- on other pages like the NL pages.

Thanks for looking at this and responding.
