Hi, Andreas,

I guess it would be best now to cross-post this news/call in the LO
design mailing list as this seems to be the point at which the
designers should jump in (now that you made it up and running and need
the design input).

It should probably be in the lines of the main LO website design so
designers of that should be asked first, I guess.

Hope this helps,

short addition.

I already explained the work for a new design of the LibreOffice extensions and template site on 
the design-mailinglist about two weeks ago.

The design/theming is done on the basis of the new theming product of Plone: Diazo. This makes 
it more easy for webdesigner to theme a Plone site.

I created a Diazo theming product for the e the extensions and template site and made some 
initial work on an HMTM index-file and a css-file.
You could find the HTML- and CSS-files in the TDF-repo on github:

The github repo contains also a rules.xml file that connects the static HTML file and the CSS 
with the dynamic content of Plone. But for the design work that rules file doesn't count.
It's only necessary to have a good knowledge about HTML and especially CSS.

I created a test site to show the current results of the theming on a TDF-resource:

Because of the infra issues this site is currently not available. I
don't know yet when it will be back again.

I worked a bit further on the Diazo theme and the code for the new
extension site addon. This work is available on too, but
could not be tested online.

It would be great, if volunteers with better knowledge about plain HTML and CSS could have a 
look at the files in the github-repository and add
some improvements and help making a new fresh and awesome design of the site.

There are only good HTML and CSS knowledge needed for this work. You need nearly no knowledge 
about the CMS Plone that powers the site.

You can directly work with the HTML- and CSS-files from github.
The Diazo theme with the HTML- and CSS-files are available on

I added some smaller fixes/additions there. Feel free to check it out
and work on the HTML/CSS.
