Description

There are 9 links in the top right of https://www.torproject.org/ , and the new blog only has 2 in the top center left (and the blog link in the top right).

Did we deliberately remove:

  • Documentation
  • Press
  • Contact
  • Download
  • Volunteer

I'd like to put Download back if we can, not sure about the other ones.

Worthwhile to do, but not critical for getting things working. We might even leave this one for when we have a uniform style across websites. But it would be sad to leave it for a year if it takes a year to have that uniform style.

Those links weren't there in the old blog. Unless I am missing something? As far as I understand this template we are using is a bit old and has a few issues, maybe it is worth having some ux person review it.

Hiro is correct in saying that those links were not in the old blog.

I agree that it's not critical to get things working, and it's better to wait until there is a uniform style across websites. Considering that those links were not there before, I think it's okay to leave as is, even for a year.

I think the bigger question here is: do we want the blog as a separate entity from the website (it seemed to be so previously, since it was styled differently, and didn't link to the other torproject.org pages) or it to be "integrated" into the main website (the backend can be different, but the styling is consistent throughout all the websites, and it to be linked from tpo.org/link to tpo.org).

I agree that Teor makes a good point that people who come to the blog should be able to download, install, and check out other pages of torproject.org. And for this reason, I am a fan of styling the blog consistently with the website and linking from tpo/to tpo (by including it in the header, and the header being the same on the tor blog too)--when the new website launches.

Thoughts?

Can you explain what was done here that needs review?

comment:8 Changed 3 years ago by hiro

Linda left a comment a few weeks ago to which no one replied, suggesting to leave it as it is. So I guess we could either close this ticket or wait to review the status of this issue.

I think users should be able to download Tor Browser from the blog.
And go to other parts of the website.
Some links somewhere on the blog template would be good.

Closing this ticket as the general idea is to leave this as it is since there will be uniform design across blog and werbsite.
