Can we have more links on the front page - I've only just discovered some existing content - e.g. the recommended software page, and the wishlist page.

Probably best to ask Peter Naulls about links on the front  page, I don't think you can edit it yourself.

Peter: please could there be links to: [[Games]], [[recommended software]], [[Wishlist]] on the front page

Also a link in the navigation panel to Special:Allpages might be useful.

Whilst you cannot edit the front page itself, it actually includes sub pages which you should be able to edit.

If someone wanted to take charge of the front page and have a more sensible/fancy layout, I'd be all for that. I've not used the image upload mechanism myself, but you should be able to use it. If you can't, then I'll see what I can do.

Editing the front page

As Peter said, sections of the front page are editable. For those who are lost and confused, you need to go to RISC OS/News, RISC OS/Projects and RISC OS/Articles to edit the three sections. I've added the sections mentioned above.

As regards adding images, they would need to be uploaded, which is currently disabled. Could uploading of eg: jpegs and pngs be allowed?

Citing guidelines

I've added how to cite a specific historical version of a page to the RISC OS FAQ. Is this a sufficiently useful tip that it is worth putting somewhere on the front page?

Front page management

It would help if we knew precisely what kind of information would be expected on a front page. Currently, there's:

  1. Site info
  2. News
  3. Projects
  4. Articles

I'd suggest splitting Projects and Articles into more subsections, as Projects specifically is huge, and will only increase.

What is the opinion regarding several possible layouts using CSS?
