Free Software Directory:Features/Redesign

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation, search

This is one of the proposed features to this site.

The Premise

The idea is to create a new appearance or layout for at least the Main Page. We will likely use this template in place of the category browsing that is currently there. (Done.) Also, we may want a Featured Projects box somewhere on that page. The current mock ups can be found here.


  • Figure out what specifically needs to be done.
  • Develop a good output for the featured programs query.

Where to make modifications

Main_Page, Template:Category_table_divided, FSD:Redesigns, FSD:Redesigns/Main_Page


If you would like to create a mockup, create a URL like this: "FSD:Redesigns/Page_name", copy over the original page text, modify and save it, and leave a link in the above section.
