Nice job, never easy putting this stuff together.

I like pieces from both – this can’t be an “A” or “B” choice. My 2 cents:

Getting Started (B). I like this – I think that most new visitors will click into the section.
I would have Business Users before Developers –

Solutions (combine from A and B). I like the “By Role” approach. I would look to combine
so we would have Solutions -> By Role (with sub options of CEO, CIO etc) and Solutions
-> by Business Need (with sub options of ERP, E-Commerce etc.).

Documentation (B). A must have, imo.

Customers (A). If I’m evaluating OFBiz I would absolutely want to see who else has adopted
the platform.

Partners (A), same thinking as “Customers”.

Community (B). I would combine items from Community / About and News into here. This can also
have links to more developer focused content and links.

I also think that the Home Page can have a big impact on the layout. For example, Latest News
could be on the Home Page (with a link to “All News”) which lessens the priority for having
News prominently available on the NavBar. This is the same for the landing pages for the major
navbar items.

It’s always difficult to put this together and get it right the first time, and right for
all viewers. Nice start!

Hi Sharan,

I think B is a more classic implementation, very clear.

But i really like the idea of having an entry point "by role", it might be only x pages with
links to other parts of the website, where we gather most interesting things for each role...

Putting it into "Getting Started" menu seems a good way to include it into B design (already
got dev and  Business User there) .

Thanks for the work !

Hi Everyone

Thanks very much for the feedback on my thread about updating our current

website. Based on suggestions from the community I've put together a couple

of diagrams that show a proposed structure for the new OFBiz website.

Please note that these proposals are only meant as guides so we are still

open to getting feedback on any suggested changes.

The first option is :


The second option is:


Next we need to get feedback from the community to understand which is the

most preferred, so please can you respond back to this thread with your

thoughts, suggestions, comments.
