Guys at THIS LINK I show my Idea for new xoops.org design.
In my opinion, it is important to give a new look at xoops.org (in addition to reorganize the contents of course) to encourage new users. Honestly I think that the site should be a concentrate of all what XOOPS can do, to offer to those who has never used a comprehensive view of what is XOOPS.
Talking with some colleagues I realized that at the same benefits (even I do not know well) Joomla has more users because it is immediately appealing. What's more, there was certainly a marketing study that has driven joomla more about than other even better CMS.
I am fond of XOOPS and not changing my cms, and are willing to give my contribution (for graphics) if you like.
i think there is no reason for xoops.org not to use your design...this redesign should be done as soon as possible..
Why the rush? Let's have a good discussion, let's see other ideas, other designs, and then let's make it happen. There is more to it than just the design. We need to think about splitting the Website into subdomains, such as modules, themes, community/support, possibly demo, etc.
I like the design, but let's hear from other people.
One thing for sure - we need a horizontal menu on top
Personally I would like to see a "slide show" on top as well, showing the best of XOOPS features. I recall that Trabis was working on it.
Concerning the designs, it is necessary to know that the contents (and thus modules used) can be different between the sites, for example xoops.org, theme.xoops.org, addons.xoops.org (or modules.xoops.org) and docs.xoops.org will not have members if it is not the team of the site. There will be a forum only on support.xoops.org, perhaps on dev.xoops.org. Certain sites do not need the columns (or right one on certain pages), etc…
