Download and Support buttons are out of the phone screen. Was that a plan? Just checking.

    It looks good and the bits I tried seem to work.  The only real
      criticism is that I don't see a search option.  Other than that
      the banner on the top of the old site looks better than the plain
      top on the new one, but I can't get too excited about that.

        Hi all,

        Some tunes have been done on :


        ...and the beta version become suitable. It's not yet
          complete of course but for a first try, it's not to bad. This
          give also a global vision of how the new digiKam web site
          layout will be displayed.

          Please take a look and comment. Thanks in advance

            I like the simplified layout of contents.
              Can you try to generate a test version by ?

                      I'm starting to feel a little
                        partial to something like this one:

                                mock-up sound good for me.

                                      was tinkering with some ideas
                                      today, and I thought I would push
                                      them out to share... :)



                                        theme will be dark, no worries.

                                            you for the great work so
                                            far, Mica! I'll start
                                            working on the

                                            content ASAP. Meanwhile, a
                                            couple of quick thoughts.


                                            - As Gilles said, a dark
                                            theme would be much better.

                                            - The template definitely
                                            needs a good header.

                                            - The Download link in the
                                            navigation bar should be
                                            more prominent. It

                                            might be even better to add
                                            a download button to the
                                            right sidebar.

                                            - The digiKam item in the
                                            left corner of the
                                            navigation bar is

                                            - The digiKam Recipes Book
                                            and Donation links don't
                                            work right now.


                                            That's all for now. :-) Keep
                                            up the great work!
