I thought that this when I saw someone talk about the triangles in the
"Extensions" and I thought that we could use it for "Templates".  I was
unable to use the internet after I uploaded this.  But I guess you found it
anyway, what do you guys think?  now that I look at it I don't really like
it all that much.  I personally like the triangle "X" and the dashed line
"T" for I think that helps visually distinguish that they are two different
add-on's.  not that you would really need the to distinguish the two.

Thanks for your explanation. Even if this is more a topic for the website

There are already some sub-categories listed on the wiki page:

If it would be possible to have Extensions and Templates as main categories
(I'd add Galleries as third one in future), all the present categories could
be moved to sub-categories.

Depending on plone several level of sub-categories might be possible and
searchable, but I don't have any idea of the background.

Thus I need to different logo (one for the extension-repo and

another one for the template part).

Understood - at least for the moment there is no other possibility.

The two sites inside one zeoserver are currently up and running (but not

final URL).


Mmh, I've thought a bit about the slash-dotted line - how to combine
what we currently have, or what we can do about the recent template
icons, the old icons (still used in some places) and the template
repository logo. So, here are some ideas open for discussion (if you

Idea 1: How about turning the characters for "Extensions&  Templates"
into the known items puzzle piece (='X') and spiral binding (=left side
of 'E'). This would match the recent LibO styling.

What about stressing more the x in extension like a big green X (Xtension)
in the
mode of an eyecatcher?

Something like I did in my first proposal?

We could do the same with the T for templates in the other site.

Andrew already created a combined logo with (modified) triangles:

Based on the scatter motif he combined triangles to outline "X" and "T" -
perhaps they can be divided into two logos.

(I still don't feel too comfortable with using the triangles - even with
rounded corners as in the document symbols and motif - in regular patterns
like 90° rotation, the motif gets it's vivid and friendly expression by the
unordered overlapping arrangement of different sized triangles. But as I
can't provide better proposals, I won't complain...)
