Hey, We'll need to define and track the content and links for the new campus reps design. Examples, copy for each of the blocks, welcome message, success story, etc links (besides main navigation) e.g. "Continued", "learn more", etc
Alex: What is the best way to manage the copy? I can start a Google Doc if that makes things easier. Or I can just start attaching .docs or .txt files to the bug. Let me know and I'll start working on the copy over the next week.
Cc'ing William R. He's going to help us get some of the copy updated and ready for the new guide.

Cool. I'll start a new Google Doc for each "page/section" of the Guide. Once I have content, I'll share it with you and William. Please let me know which email/account to use to add you as a contributor to the Google Docs.
if you want, you can keep it all in one doc, so you don't have to share each one with each new person. whatever is easiest for you. you can use firstname.lastname@example.org to add me. thanks
Sounds good... one page it is. I agree, it'll be easier to manage everything in one doc. I'll just create clear headings for each page.
Hey, A quick update: I've implemented the content you gave me on stage, https://spreadfirefox.authstage.mozilla.com/campusreps/welcome I'm still working on merging the old Campus Reps pages in with the new stuff. For example, pages like this, http://www.spreadfirefox.com/campusreps/introductions Some notes, * I came across a lot of typos. I fixed a lot, but it could use a proof read. * There are a ton of places where we can link off to other content. List any you want here. * Some pieces of the new design are missing, specifically the "Quick Tip" blocks and the talking head. * "Checklist" on the Help page doesn't have links. * We're still using pictures of lizards for a bunch of background images, like on the projects page. What do you want here? * Where does "Continued..." on the Success Story block link to? * The quick link "Community Marketing Guide" links to a page that doesn't have content yet.
Hey Alex, I saw the staged content... it's looking great! Thanks for getting things updated. I will work through the list you provided... comments inline below: (In reply to comment #7) > > * I came across a lot of typos. I fixed a lot, but it could use a proof read.

Those were mostly placeholders for future use... I will try to come up with copy for them now, but if not, we can just hide them. > > * "Checklist" on the Help page doesn't have links. I'll get the appropriate links together for the checklist, and have a few suggested changes to the list items themselves. Will provide everything you need soon. > > * We're still using pictures of lizards for a bunch of background images, like > on the projects page. What do you want here? I am looking through our photos to pick the right ones for the projects page. I will attach them to this bug and label them with the appropriate #. > > * Where does "Continued..." on the Success Story block link to? Can we change that link text to "Read about our success stories..."? Also is it possible to change the header/title to "Success Stories" instead of "Story"? The link should go here: http://www.spreadfirefox.com/campusreps/success0910 > > * The quick link "Community Marketing Guide" links to a page that doesn't have > content yet. The link should go here: http://contribute.mozilla.org/Marketing

Made edits to the copy in the Google doc. All my edits are in red. Words with strikethrough font should be removed.

We still don't have content for those pages, so we will work on that and can get those up later. Also, I have a few questions about how we're going to handle the forums and other various places where users will need to be members of the SFX group... so let's chat about that soon.
Created attachment 391833 [details] Images to replace lizards on the Projects page I resized and optimized for Web use... so hopefully you can just swap these in for the temp images.
(In reply to comment #12) > Created an attachment (id=391833) [details] > Images to replace lizards on the Projects page > > I resized and optimized for Web use... so hopefully you can just swap these in > for the temp images. Just a note that we need to attribute all the images (they're under CC licenses) except the dorm.jpg (which is Vineel's photo). Links to original images are in comment #11. Not sure where, but maybe we can add a note at the bottom of the page?
(In reply to comment #14) > r48618 updates the content through comment #12 Actually, I haven't updated Success Story -> Stories yet. Doing that now. Also, what did we decide to add to the navigation? Forums? Was there something else?
also, wanted to note that I left out any links to store.mozilla.org for now, because it's down for maintenance and there's no word of when it will be fixed, afaik. stephend, I checked in the typo fixes per IRC. r48621
(In reply to comment #14) > r48618 updates the content through comment #12 > > What do you want the text for comment #13 to be? Just put a note somewhere at the bottom of the projects page that says: "Project photos from JUST Open Source Group, kerolic, ottodv, UBC Library Graphics, Extra Ketchup, and firefox_community are CC licensed." And link those to the URLs in comment #11 and the CC to creativecommons.org

I think just FORUMS for now... and maybe an "Archive" in smaller text in the lower right that points to the old page. But we can probably live without that.
I've added the CC note to the project page in r48656. I've also added the "Forums" nav link on stage.
The majority of the redesign and content is done. I've split off two remaining bugs that I know of, * bug 509555 to sort out some issues with the templates files * bug 509561 for Success Story -> Success Stories I hope to have these closed out today or early tomorrow.
Alex: The staged pages look good. If there is nothing left to do, can we push this to production? Will you file the bug or should I?
Hey Jay, I'm still working on committing the fix for bug 509555, per comment #20. It took me a bit longer than I first imagined. I'm hoping to get that in today or tomorrow, and then we'll need to do the usual QA round. 3.0.4 wraps up next week, and I'd like to launch this then, along with the other fixes. I can file the IT bug when we're ready.
Sounds good. I'm marking this v.fixed. We can track the other bug separately until we're ready for production. Thanks for the update.
