First website template proposal

(Cédric Krier) #1

Continuing the discussion from New website design:

Notice that choice was made mainly to target the users (companies, decider makers etc.) and not developers. Developers will find the necessary information in the footer.
Here is a picture of the first proposal of Webadev:

Feel free to comment it, I will summarize the general feeling to the designer.

Home page content
(Richard Martin) #2

So far it looks fine to me.

One thing I don’t like: The top menu has too many topics. I would very much appreciate cutting this down (from 10 to say 6 better only 5).

I’m happy (to hear) about the progress, thank you!

Maybe “Report bug” can go inside “Contribute”

and “News” and “Events” can to be just one “News & Events”

(Oscar Alvarez) #4

Cedk maybe can be add one highlight sucess case implementation below Modules.

(Cédric Krier) #5

The content is just an example out of the current site, this is not fixed at all. But for sure many menu entries are duplicates of the footer.

(Oscar Alvarez) #6

I would add something like that:

“Tryton is used in more than +30 countries of the world, has more than +50 modules, and is available in 10 languages, more than +20 IT Companies can help you implement Tryton for your business.”

The numbers are example.


Not bad for the first shot!
I miss the part that lists the benefits of using Tryton compared to proprietary solutions. A CEO or decision maker will not be interested in the first glance that it is a three-tiers platform (etc), but what his advantages are.

(Sergi Almacellas Abellana) #8

I agree with oscar. If the website target is final users, we should add some success histories on the front pages. Or at least give more visibility to them. Currently they are hided on the services page.

I find that the footer (links) should be more separated from the content. Maybe it should have the same background color as the toolbar.
I find that the “red” color could be a little bit more flashy but we could link it with red salamender. But I’m wondering if “yellow” could not be also an option (fire salamander). I will ask to the designer.
I’m wondering if the font size should not be a little bit bigger.

I agree that we should have probably just a slide show of logo from the success stories which link to the full story.

I do not think we should have comparison lists. We should express that Tryton is a great solution by itself. This could be achieved by describing the benefit of each modules (indeed I do not think module is the right term, we should probably speak about topic/subject/problematic and how we solve it).

(Jan Grasnick) #10

The design is state of art and looks solid. So go for it as a refreshment of the current design.

The donators stuff should go to start page to not be hidden in a very deep click path (attraction and reward).

I think @coogor and @ced are misunderstanding: Not a comparison list, only a few catchphrases why using open source ERP is a future-proof decision.

(Cédric Krier) #11

On the last meeting with Webadev, we have reduced the menu and footer to this list:


  • Application
  • News
  • Events
  • Services
  • About us


  • Download
  • Documentation
  • Contribute
  • Report a bug
  • Community
  • Presentations

(Nicolas Évrard) #12

I’d like to point to Home page content where we also need the community help.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

(Fares Younis) #13

What If we can arrange the elements of the website using trello, and also we can check on the progresses.
What do you think ?
here is an example of what I am working on at the moment…
