I'm afraid I prefer design 1, myself. :) What do you like better about
I kind of liked the watery theme on top in design 1. I also liked better
the way the boxes in the main area rendered, though we'll probably not
need them for a typical sub page which will presumably contain text.
Finally, there's more unused space on the left side in design 2, design
1 seemed more efficient that way.
Note that both design 1 and design 2 have a slight problem in the
rendering of the menu, the word 'documentation' is too long and runs
into the next entry. This is on Firefox 22.214.171.124 on linux.
I'd still like to see the design for a sub-page. After all, we're mostly
going to see such sub pages.
That is, no blue boxes on the side; that's something good on a front
page, and "plain text" in the middle (perhaps with an image or two).
Since I'm not a big fan of pull-down menus for navigation myself,
perhaps some of the sidebar space could be used for navigation (I'd
prefer the left hand side), instead of the menus on top, or perhaps we
could use some of the space for info boxes.
plone.org uses tabs on the top for major areas and a sidebar for the
subsites - it seems to work well for them, so perhaps this might work
for us too. What do people think?
