The current website isn't the most user-friendly and is hard to navigate. We want to change this.


This website should work in at least Arora, Konqueror, Firefox, Galeon and IE{6,7}


You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.


The changes will first be tested on our testservers (hosted by RyanKavanagh and RoderickGreening). They will then by pushed onto launchpad and applied onto the official websites by the Canonical sysadmins.

UI Changes

  • Get rid of the latest news in the masthead, we'll adopt action items "Download", "Get Help", "Support", "Tour", similar to the Xubuntu website
    • Download icon from KGet and other Oxygen icons will be used
  • News should be moved to a block on the left showing only headlines and short sub-headline.
  • Download and Archive blocks on the left will disappear
