Description

 http://blog.plumi.org

The structure of the wordpress site is all there. We just need a re-design of the CSS with a limited number of graphics. We would like to have a banner and a download button.

Design Brief

Should look funky. The key thing to keep in mind is that it aims to be both a brochure site to get info on Plumi but also a blog for keeping up to date with changes to the software.

Sites for inspiration might be  http://showinabox.tv/  http://forepaw.org/  http://www.getmiro.com/  http://www.loudblog.com/

It should be funky but not alienating, it needs to make people want to get involved (developers and project manager types and those interested in FOSS) and feel that the project is sorted without appearing so sorted that it doesn't need people's contributions. Sorted, but not overly slick or corporate. The DIY feel of forepaw.org (banner in particular) is nice for expressing that perhaps - but that site is too busy/arty for what we want. The simplicity of ShowInABox site is really good.

Free, open, video, sharing, participatory, DIY are more ideas to work from - keep in mind previous brief for logo.

We like the green of current Plumi, but don't feel we have to hang onto that if you want to change it.

Technical Details

We have chosen a theme that fits the structure of pages and info we want, though this can change a bit if you have other ideas.

You can edit the theme through the admin panel using the Theme Editor:  http://blog.plumi.org/wp-admin/theme-editor.php

If this theme is not sufficient to base design on we can install a different one.

The users "keren" and "noa" have been added to the Wordpress blog so you can edit it.

Spanna alerted me to the fact that the blog had lots of SQL errors on the front page after updating from version 2.2.3-1 to 2.3.1-1 on the 06/11/2007

It was easier to fix than I thought - by visiting  http://blog.plumi.org/wp-admin you can see the message:

Database Upgrade Required Your WordPress? database is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you continue.

Then there is a big link to the upgrade script.

This loads another page that says:

Upgrade complete The WordPress? database has been successfully updated.

Problem solved.

  • Priority changed from major to critical
  • Milestone changed from 0.2 to 0.3

I'm pushing this down also as no start has been made on it to date so I don't think it fits into the current time line andycat has outlined for a 0.2 release. Pushing back to 0.3. Its also not related to plumi code in anycase.
