[WEB-45] Rearrange projects on the Project and Downloads page - IgniteRealtime JIRA

This is bugging me for some time. On the Projects page we are emphasizing our main project. Openfire, Spark and.. SparkWeb (which is not maintained or developed for 8 years). I think it should be pushed from that prominent place. I propose to just hide it on the projects page. There will still be source and download entry as well as sub-forum available. Or we can move it to the bottom of the page, but then we will need to introduce new section as it is not a library. I would also hide XIFF API from there as it is already moved to discontinued in the forums and it doesn't seem to revive. But as it is not in front, it doesn't bother me that much.

I would also like to promote Smack to have a bigger placeholder like Openfire and Spark have. Although it is a library and having a section Libraries will not have much sense (maybe renaming to "other projects" instead).

Next. Dele is still listed as Lead developer for SparkWeb, which is not true and it could be changed to "Vacant". Maybe this way someone will decide to take the lead at some point, by seeing that nobody is in charge of this project.

Third. Move SparkWeb to the bottom on the downloads page. So only active projects are at the top and in the focus.

As this is mostly just html stuff moving around i should be able to do this all myself. Just need some feedback from others on that.

 

[WEB-34] Update Sources download page - IgniteRealtime JIRA

Sources page needs some maintenance also. We have zip and tar.gz links to sources (i guess they are copied to the site when Bamboo builds a new build). But there are no links for all the projects and.. one can already download the sources from Github. So, do we need to duplicate that? Maybe we can just expand the Github section instead providing links to repositories for all the projects (and links to nightly builds for all the projects having such). I see that someone has already removed the obsolete SVN links, so that's done.

 

[WEB-46] Support page and Webchat widget modification - IgniteRealtime JIRA

Out Support page is looking very old and obsolete. It suggest Professional support is available and list some old articles. Some suggest to remove this menu/page completely (which would be easier) or strip it down to just a webchat with developers. Although this widget is already shown on many pages, so maybe there is no need to devote a separate page for it. Webchat widget needs its text fixing also. The site is also showing an additional menu every Wednesday when the old chat with the developers was scheduled. Not sure how to remove that.

 

[WEB-47] Update front and about pages - IgniteRealtime JIRA

Front page and about page shows some old information like articles and whitepapers which are ages old. Also texts on the front and about pages could be edited to be up to date.
