Subject RE: [Vote] Move plugin site.xml up to Maven or Shared
Date Sun, 08 Apr 2007 03:12:13 GMT
I moved the site stuff up to the main maven pom. I staged the maven main
site here: http://people.apache.org/~brianf/maven/

I think this is pretty good. I also staged a shared component to see how
it looks by inheriting the info here:
http://people.apache.org/~brianf/enforcer/

The problem is that the shared component page now is setting
class="externalLink" for most of the links in the header. This class has
extra right padding and messes it up.

I'm not familiar enough yet with the site and related tech to know how
to fix this. It seems like changing the skin isn't what we want, somehow
we need to tell site not to make these externalLinks.

Also, the plugin and shared sites should have the version and published
date as they currently do. However when you add the breadcrumbs, you
can't seem to force them to be on the far left. I think the version and
published date should be to the right of the breadcrumbs to make
everything consistent.

Pointers?

Makes sense. Another option is to have those links in the bottom of  
the left nav on every site too.

I'm not against either of those solutions, as long as the links  
section isn't too bloated. I can certainly see the merits in  
consistency of the header section.
