change www.amule.org skin ?
« on: July 06, 2009, 06:37:03 PM »

Hello all   :-*

I don't know where to post this...
What about changing the aMule's homepage skin ? The current homepage skin is ugly  ;D

Best place to ask for this is either here or here - I'm undecided.

Sure you can. Please make a quick mock-up for your proposed style - and don't get discouraged if actually implementing anything takes a little longer. (See: soon)

My design is relatively simple

Homepage : (customize it as you want)


Homepage :hover one logo : (the search input appears!)


Download page :

The icons are clickable :)

Looks good, thanks for your work.

Actually I believe we have less content / our content organized differently.

The forum is most heavily used for everything, then there's the wiki and the bug tracker. That's about it. Does this fit to your design?

And why do you hide the search box? Isn't this bad from a usability perspective?

I like it! :)

However it would be good to have the main page fit into the whole window, so the user doesn't have (can't) scroll on it.
Maybe the "Get it now" section could be shrinked vertically?

Don't know, I was just testing :p

Good idea but not compatible with all screen resolutions.

Quick preview here : http://khandalf.free.fr/amule/

Feel free to critique or get modifications : use the firebug firefox's extension if you wanna do quick modifications :)

And sorry for the bad english, I'm french  ;D

emeral, could you add support for translations for that web?

I mean something like www.getdeb.net (transparent to the user as it depends on the browser user-agent locale)

The design is really very good :D

I am not "emeral", but I don't understand this question. Do you mean "webpage"?

The internationalisation webmaster's job, this is the design, not the application.
But it's simple to set it up with Rails

It's simple to setup with apache and html-files, too. If proper configured, you just need a file with <file>.<lang>.html and it get's choosen when <file>.html is called.
