make the download webpage better.
Make a entry very visible "after install".
Currently the point is very hidden, even in new website.
Users do not read that section after/while downloading I2P.

  • Status changed from new to accepted

During and after 30C3, changes were made to the styling of the download page to improve it.

Still to do: restructure text to better explain what to do after install.

My proposal: use the download redirection page to show the post-install text. The text should be shared with the download list, so that users can find it even if they aren't downloading a file.

  • Milestone set to 0.9.10
  • Status changed from accepted to testing

Pushed in a140cb5be22f2b3c51c59e8d57375538eda9cdd0 - download redirection URL displays a page with the same post-install content as the downloads list.

Leaving ticket open for feedback. Is there more that should be done?

I think the commit is sound and looks great.

I've attached my take on the page (/download). I think the patch improves overall readability. Very minor, but I hope it helps.

  • Status changed from testing to needs_work

Removing testing status to increase visibility. Doesn't seem like a ticket should be both review-needed and testing.

str4d also propped his revamp branch in late November so this needs another look to either apply the patch, request a rework of the patch, or close the ticket as the revamp changes did the same thing.

I reviewed the original report and found that the downloads page has been redirecting to the "Post-install work" page for a while now. It looks great to me, setting to fixed.

If you feel that further cleanup is needed, please reopen with a reworked patch because 14d8772f260b107176fa0a0a4a730128c983c0a3.patch​ no longer cleanly applies.
