Description

10 years ago
Let's create a new start page that uses no css in the wiki page itself (only in the template/theme) and that uses a three-box layout and a search.  The wiki page should only define the box ids and content, not any style.

For this process to go smoothly, we might want to fork tiki-show_page.tpl and copy the mozms.css theme.

Just to clarify things, the reason for the new start page is not to implement a redesign, but to create a version of the start page that includes the _content_ that we want, with no css/style in the actual wiki page. Once we have that, we can ask localizers to translate the start pages (really mostly just the menu, because the rest will be dynamic content already localizable with bug 414361).

The next step after the above is to actually polish the layout/style of the start pages, but this should be possible without touching the wiki part of the pages, including all of its localizations.

Jason, could you help me cleaning the start page up and define the associated css in a separate stylesheet instead? Maybe we could experiment with it on e.g. your personal tiki setup?

The goal here is to have a generic start page that looks like today, but allows us to implement the design changes later on without modifying the wiki source of the page.

css patch

CSS changes to support the new front page content while keeping the same layout. These changes can go in without the new content without any problems.

front page tiki markup

One thing: it might be a good idea to place the tbsupport div outside the frontmenu div, since we want to have that item visually separated from the rest of the menu.

We may even want to have a layout like this:

[Frontmenu]   [Top10]   [New to Firefox?]
 *             *         Click here!
 *             * 
 *             *        [Looking for TB?]
 *             *         Click here!

Which makes the Thunderbird box not only separated from the menu div, but even on a separate column.

You're going to have to move the divs around anyway if you want to do that.
