Description

6 years ago
As part of the prize package in the Favorite Add-ons contest, we are celebrating the winners in the homepage promo spot.

Voting will last until July 19, and winners will be announced Aug 1. The promo should go up within a week after winners are announced.

The promo design, fonts, and artwork are here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=753597

In keeping with the scheme, the promo should take up only one spot in the carousel. The winner's name, photo, add-on name, and pull-quote will cycle within the promo spot. Three nav dots on the bottom will let people scroll through the winners manually. 

Clicking on the pull-quote or photo will take you to the full review.

Some changes from the PSD:
- The banner with "ADDON NAME" will actually have the name of the winner.
- The name of the add-on should precede the pull-quote, i.e. Firebug: "Quote here"
- The text "Your name here" underneath the photo should be removed.

I will provide actual content once winners are determined.
Seems like something Kevin might be interested in.

I need to add in the navigation again. I was assuming that it was going to be interactive.

Looks awesome to me. How are we going to handle horizontal carousels without the carousel? Hover, click?

Hi David, thanks for your help! I've attached a better photo of Caroline, which is also in color--would you mind using this one instead?

Sorry, small change--clicking on the banner should take you to the add-on detail page instead of the review page. We want people to download and try the add-on for themselves! Thanks

As per this comment https://github.com/mozilla/zamboni/pull/376#issuecomment-7561468 - a larger promo is also needed for the discopane carousel

Hi David, the promo will only appear on the homepage--no disco pane promo needed. Thanks
DownThemAll! and LastPass should be capitalized. I just noticed that. If you have the PSD sources, David, I can quickly swap those in.
