Author Topic: No link to SOHO Final from main page  (Read 1807 times)

I just recommended VL 5.8 SOHO to a friend, and he will probably give it a go. But I notice that the Download link for SOHO gives an empty page, and I am certain that he will not be able to find the SOHO (final) iso. Moreover, the link has "RC" in the iso name, and I wouldn't recommend this person try a Release Candidate. Please furnish an appropriate link in the main page Downloads section. Thanks

EDIT: I see now, the link is actually under VL 5.8 Standard Gold, which gives a collection of VL versions including SOHO Final. Still, the SOHO link should give SOHO Final, even if this is redundant. I wouldn't know to click VL Std to get to VL SOHO Final, how can we expect newcomers to know this. My friend is gonna be confused.

the website is kind of outdated. Undecided

if it was integrated with the forum,then nobody would have to go and write announcements there too..

hi blury,

good to see ya.
hey nubcnubdo, nice to see you too  Grin
Sadly i am working this month and i dont have enough time to sit and do the site mockups. I stand for forum integration in my mockup, since the forum is the most active part of this comunity, you should focus on a viewing module type of main page to show whats latest around. I dont like the idea of having just one man updating all the information around on the website,while the real announcements go on at the forum,which is kind of hard to find from the menu.

I understand your fear of penetration of the forum,but i also believe that no script kiddy would attack the forum and succeed this time.

The forum is the heart of this comunty, you should focus on it mostly,but you MUST have a good presentation of the distro and outdated information,invalid links,old screenshots,uncomfortable navigation and a-not-so-well-made-color-scheme-and-overal-design is not a good presentation at all. I actually think you are loosing alot from this lack of manpower to make the website look good and function well, and after that work without any need of additional work at it ..
