strange new main WB page layout

Post by uwestoehr » Sun Mar 08, 2020 9:23 pm

I cannot remember that all main pages had such a huge icon:

The icon consumes most of the visible space on my screen.

I see that this change was introduced by Kunda1, e.g.:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/index.php?t ... did=618963

Can this please be improved?

@uwestoehr I was working on bringing more attention to the workbench icon for better brand recognition. Wiki markup doesn't allow for fancy layouts and walls of text make it exhausting to read content.

I believe there was some acceptance of this approach by @kaktus. Anyway, what do you suggest?

I haven't seen kaktus being very active in Path workbench; neither forum, nor development.

About Draft Module and the rest of the workbench main pages, I dislike the big icon that Kunda added. It pushes the text down too much, leaving a ton of empty space. Consequently the {{TOCright}} is also too far down, which doesn't look good. I wanted users to start reading the introduction of the workbench and at the same time look at the table of contents, not stare at a giant icon.
This is also my thought.
Agree on visual memory, but this is exaggerated.

EDIT
This seems to me to be a better position

Well it's potentially an easy fix because it's possible to regex it sing pywikibot
and/or we could use CSS

Hello, gents.
I see you guys are talking about me, so thank you for your good words. :roll:

chrisb - I have expressed my opinion on this, the change you have noticed is global and affects all work environments. :P

I think it's a good change.
But what the Renatorivo did is perfect. :mrgreen:

What's the proposed code for the change? Anyone have experience here with mediawiki CSS?
