The round logo at the left (which I agree is pretty garish) still takes a line by itself, leaving lots of dead white space for only a centered page title to follow it.

Maybe the "learning" section should be improved? As it is none of the links under it are extremely useful. Maybe they could be concatenated and split up into "tutorials" for mere mortals, and papers which probably aren't as useful to the newbie? Also, an idea is to redesign to have the news section up in front and visible. The more important items in HWN etc. could be put here (significant new libraries etc). After all, most people are very web-centric these days so using the Haskell.org site as a general announcement page is probably a good idea if it doesn't get too cluttered.
  +
  +
In fact, I already have a 'significant news' page generated from the HWN
  +
archives, [http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/code/hwn/announce.html here].
  +
If this headlines of this kind of content is what we'd like to appear in
  +
a news bar on the page somewhere, just make a place, and I'll update it
  +
as the HWN is published each week. -- Don Stewart
  +
  +
: Please do! I think significant news (about new libraries, for instance) should be on the front page. If for no other reason than letting casual browsers know that the community is active.

== Plan : whitespace issues ==
  +
  +
I've made the "Haskell : A purely functional language" smaller now, so
  +
its more inline with with python.org, and perl.org logos. My model is
  +
[http://python.org/ python.org], I think our img header should be only a
  +
bit bigger than that.
  +
  +
The problem still remains that there is too much empty whitespace at the
  +
top of the page, before the real content. Ideally I'd like:
  +
  +
* 1. a smaller circular logo, about 80% of the current size
  +
* 2. align the circle and text logos.
  +
* 3. remove the "Haskell" wiki title from the page
  +
  +
So we just need to work out how to do steps 2 and 3.
  +
  +
Opinions? -- [[User:DonStewart]] Wed Apr 12 16:23:47 EST 2006
  +
  +
There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove the title on a particular page.

  +
: That might be a good idea - the only thing that you'd have to be careful about is that it needs to be clear that Hoogle isn't a web search engine. You could easily confuse people, especially given the name - [[User:MikeDodds|MikeDodds]] 17:43, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

== Well-formedness / validity ==
  +
Not sure where to put this...
  +
  +
Currently every Haskell-wiki page is [http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.haskell.org%2Fhaskellwiki%2FHaskell invalid XHTML 1.0 Transitional] and in fact not even well-formed XML (as I mention on my [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Isaac_Dupree Wikipedia user page], which I'll update if this is fixed!). Most browsers don't mind because it's served as text/html, which it needs to stay for Internet Explorer... Anyway. Whoever controls the header at the top of the haskell-wiki pages:
  +
*Assuming the (X)HTML in the header can be modified...
  +
*The <form> in the header (the search box) [http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html is a block-level element]. However it occurs inside a <p> element that contains
  +
:Haskell | Wiki community | Recent changes
  +
:Random page | Upload file | Special pages
  +
:(search box)
  +
  +
:This is not even very much like a paragraph. Turning that <p>...</p> into a <div>...</div> would fix this.
  +
*The Haskell logo in the top left corner is implemented with <img ...>. Firstly, this is not well-formed! It should end like <img ... />. Secondly, it needs an alt="something" attribute. Since this logo also functions as a link, the alt text should be non-empty. I suggest alt="λ" (replacing the logo with a lambda character, which is utf-8 as per the character encoding, or perhaps the equivalent alt="λ")
  +
  +
Testing these changes in my own copy, in Internet Explorer 6, Firefox 2 and Konqueror 3.5.5, I observed no ill effects (and a nice lambda effect when the image was unavailable in firefox, konqueror and some text-only browser). And the W3C HTML validator was happy and the CSS validator (which relies on the XML correctness) worked.
  +
  +
Incidentally, http://haskell.org/ghc/ is valid,
  +
http://haskell.org/hugs/ isn't, http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/ mostly is... but, never mind that ;) (i.e. I won't pursue those)

1 Search Box doesn't find short words

Just leaving a note here to say that the Search box and button at the top of the page now works properly except for words of three characters or less. These are not indexed and will give no results. (See Haskell-Cafe post by Mads Lindstrøm for possible administrator technical solution and related threads.) --Rk

2 EduSoft.ro URL

THE EduSoft URL is: www.edusoft.ro NOT edusoft.com. You can see it in the Ro/Haskell page ! See the details. Thank you for other (wellcome) corrections.

Calm down, I've fixed it. Naturally I googled it and assumed the parent company was the one to link to. --Gwern 23:04, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Well done.

3 Logo and design

After all, most people are very web-centric these days so using the Haskell.org site as a general announcement page is probably a good idea if it doesn't get too cluttered.

In fact, I already have a 'significant news' page generated from the HWN archives, here. If this headlines of this kind of content is what we'd like to appear in a news bar on the page somewhere, just make a place, and I'll update it as the HWN is published each week. -- Don Stewart

Please do! I think significant news (about new libraries, for instance) should be on the front page. If for no other reason than letting casual browsers know that the community is active. Just add titles (with dates) on each news entry on the existing news page. --SebastianSylvan 15:33, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

5 Plan : whitespace issues

I've made the "Haskell : A purely functional language" smaller now, so its more inline with with python.org, and perl.org logos. My model is python.org, I think our img header should be only a bit bigger than that.

The problem still remains that there is too much empty whitespace at the top of the page, before the real content. Ideally I'd like:

  • 1. a smaller circular logo, about 80% of the current size
  • 2. align the circle and text logos.
  • 3. remove the "Haskell" wiki title from the page

So we just need to work out how to do steps 2 and 3.

Opinions? -- User:DonStewart Wed Apr 12 16:23:47 EST 2006

There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove the title on a particular page. I asked about it on the Mediawiki irc channel, and I found this thread on the Mediawiki-l mailing list. -- JohnHamilton 19:07, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

6 Search with Hoogle box?

Lots of websites have a search with google box, maybe a search with hoogle box on the front page (small and discrete) would be appropriate? --Neil Mitchell 13:42, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

That might be a good idea - the only thing that you'd have to be careful about is that it needs to be clear that Hoogle isn't a web search engine. You could easily confuse people, especially given the name - MikeDodds 17:43, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

7 Well-formedness / validity

Not sure where to put this...

Currently every Haskell-wiki page is invalid XHTML 1.0 Transitional and in fact not even well-formed XML (as I mention on my Wikipedia user page, which I'll update if this is fixed!). Most browsers don't mind because it's served as text/html, which it needs to stay for Internet Explorer... Anyway. Whoever controls the header at the top of the haskell-wiki pages:

  • Assuming the (X)HTML in the header can be modified...
  • The <form> in the header (the search box) is a block-level element. However it occurs inside a <p> element that contains
Haskell | Wiki community | Recent changes
Random page | Upload file | Special pages
(search box)
This is not even very much like a paragraph. Turning that <p>...</p> into a <div>...</div> would fix this.
  • The Haskell logo in the top left corner is implemented with <img ...>. Firstly, this is not well-formed! It should end like <img ... />. Secondly, it needs an alt="something" attribute. Since this logo also functions as a link, the alt text should be non-empty. I suggest alt="λ" (replacing the logo with a lambda character, which is utf-8 as per the character encoding, or perhaps the equivalent alt="&#955;")

Testing these changes in my own copy, in Internet Explorer 6, Firefox 2 and Konqueror 3.5.5, I observed no ill effects (and a nice lambda effect when the image was unavailable in firefox, konqueror and some text-only browser). And the W3C HTML validator was happy and the CSS validator (which relies on the XML correctness) worked.

Incidentally, http://haskell.org/ghc/ is valid, http://haskell.org/hugs/ isn't, http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/ mostly is... but, never mind that ;) (i.e. I won't pursue those)

Now HaskellWiki is well-formed and valid —Isaac Dupree 14:02, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
I can't guarantee that, it's quite possible that some page's wiki content will translate to bad XHTML. —Ashley Y 01:06, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
