Description

When entering libreoffice.org the "Get it now" banner appears.

You can only get to the homepage when you read that banner and click "To the Homepage".

There should be
  • a close (X) button to close that banner
  • a click anywhere on the homepage around that banner should also close that banner

Additionally, a cookie should be set such that this banner only appears once for each new user.
Recurring users probably don't want to download LibreOffice each time they visit the site.

The banner should have been removed in the meantime - can you confirm?

no banner at the moment, but will take it as improvement for next iteration of the jumppage styles banner. Not sure about the close button itself, rather taking that clicking anywhere besides the banner should not pass through, but dismiss the banner.
Not sure I want to go the route with cookies...
anyway, "accepting" the ticket.
Also good opportunity for Jean to try his hands on the testing VM.

As soon as I get access to the testing VM, I'm ready to check it out.

IMHO Cloph reached out to you on this already and/or you should have
access. If not, can you mail him and Cc me?

#5 Updated by Jean Spiteri over 1 year ago

I had already informed Cloph about the problem. Anyway, I've sent you an email too Florian some hours ago. In brief, I have a problem with the key so I thought I would generate a new one to try and fix the problem.

#7 Updated by Jean Spiteri over 1 year ago

Is this done using any particular module? Or is it done from scratch? I have tried searching for signs of some module but haven't seen any so I'm assuming that it is done from scratch but I don't want to cause any problems so a clarification would be quite helpful.

#8 Updated by Jean Spiteri over 1 year ago

About the cookie thing, maybe a solution could be that of saving a cookie for that session only? So a user closes the banner once per session.

#9 Updated by Jean Spiteri over 1 year ago

This can be removed from the 'Team - Q1 2017' version. However, I don't have the permission to do it.

#10 Updated by Florian Effenberger over 1 year ago

  • Target version deleted (Q1/2017)

In your mail, you write

Can someone with knowledge of SilverStripe comment on this issue? That way, there'll be better guidance on what needs to be done.

Actually I'm a bit lost on what needs doing, I don't get it from the ticket. :-) Maybe you can let us know more details on what you need?

#12 Updated by Jean Spiteri 8 months ago

I have two questions about this issue.

1. How is the banner handled? I meant is it added through a module or HTML code written by someone directly on the server?

2. If the user closes the banner, should there be a cookie that stops the banner from appearing again? What lifetime should such cookie have (session or long-term)?

I would appreciate it if someone with more experience comments on these two questions.

Not sure if people see this ticket - otherwise feel free to ask on
website@ :-)

#14 Updated by Jean Spiteri 2 months ago

I've already asked on the website@ mailing list but I got no reply for that. Also, I think this needs to be reconsidered to decide whether the banner will be re-used another time or not.
