This page is dedicated to the desing of the homepage of Tiki.The pages on info.tikiwiki.org are those first impression pages for folks arriving to Tiki. In order to keep them organized they can not be edited directly on the info.tikiwiki page, they are discussed and desinged here first, then go public

Proposed info.tikiwiki.org layout - add your ideas here!
- Unify text with promo sheet & use famfamfam icons?
- The opening page of Tiki should give a quick and easy overview on what Tiki is about with as few clicks as possible
- gezza: I think we should avoid using links for the Features, Join!, etc subpages and try to make a tabbed layout where you can navigate without page reload. Currently there is no such feature in Tiki but maybe it should go on the roadmap to have plugin for this. It could be called "tab plugin" and should be similar to the existing "versions" plugin (maybe this one could be enhanced to use ajax and a few more parameters).

- what to include in the article listing
- tab switching reloads the page
- can not center H1, the syntax does not work
- Need to use a DIV:
anonymus in users can not navigate, when trying to switch tab the page just reloads but the tab is not switched. When logged in it works fine. This is caused by cache! If it need a refresh from cache, navigation will not work. After you refresh (with the green arrow icon on the top), navigation will work for anonymus
- the first H1 of a tab is not processed correctly. workaround is to start a raw, put one space than press enter and put the H1 in the 2nd row, than it is fine in preview mode but not fine after save
- having a wikilink in a H1 disrespects H1 style
