Subject [jira] Commented: (SHIRO-263) Shorten "About Shiro" page
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 18:56:58 GMT


Les Hazlewood commented on SHIRO-263:

I actually think this page is the right level of detail.  You already know fully what Apache
Shiro is based on the home page - we clearly explain we're a security framework, and we show
the major parts of the framework right away (Authentication, Authorization, Cryptography,
Session Management, Web Support), with 'features' pages linked to each.

After seeing all of that, you can go to the 'about' page to find out more in-depth about the
project - what we believe, how it came about, its history, etc.

People only go to 'about' pages when they want more detail than what is provided by skimming
the home page.  At that point, they're actually looking for something to read and not to just
skim IMO.
