Subject [MARKETING] Updating our OFBiz Website
Date Tue, 26 May 2015 08:09:29 GMT
Hi All

I'd like to start a discussion about changing and updating our main project
website. We have had our current side for quite a while now and I think that
it would be good to update it.

Here are some of my initial thoughts

1. Our logo takes up less space now and we have a lot of space at the top so
perhaps we could look at moving the navigation bar into this area
2. A lot of the links on the right hand side could be moved into a drop down
navigation bar to give us more space
3. The site itself contains a lot of words which I think makes it hard for
visitors to see what is important
4. If we want to focus on potential visitor types (e.g. developers and
business users) then we need to adapt the website and highlight what would
interest them and encourage them into trying OFBiz
5. At the moment he biggest thing we highlight is downloading OFBiz (yet why
would someone download if they are not sure that it meets their needs). 
6. On my version of linux (14.04 LTS) the webpage doesn't fill the screen
(I'm not sure if that is just me!)
7. We have links to two versions of OFBiz demos (do we really need 2?)
without any instructions for users as to what they need to do. If for some
reason they are logged out they have no instructions how to log in again. 
8. The 'News' section is very static and gets out of date quickly. We have
resurrected our blog so perhaps it would be better to replace this with a
blog feed instead.

What do people think? I'm happy to hear any other ideas that people may

If feedback is positive then I'd like to start work on a new draft website
that could be presented to back the community. Only if accepted will we do
the changeover.

Also I'm not a graphical person or a website designer so would be looking
for some volunteers to help me put this together.
