Work with Andreas to add more help and encourage users to upload their own extensions and templates:
- Step-by-step help text
- Video demos to link / embed

Any concrete details or progress on this? Still realistic for Q3? I know Andreas is absent at the moment, which might delay things in case his feedback is required
#3 Updated by Mike Saunders 11 months ago
- Target version changed from Q3/2017 to Q4/2017
No big progress yet as other tasks have come up, and with LibOCon around the corner let's bump this to Q4. If Andreas is at LibOCon, though, I could arrange to meet with him and come up with a solid plan.

Sorry, but I'll not be at the LibOCon this year.
If you're up to that, Mike could work with you on this via e-mail, and Guilhem and Cloph could help rolling out the changes if needed?

To move this along, Andreas, what do you think are the most important things the site needs? In my opinion:
- Some design improvements (eg "Log in Register" at the top all looks like one link, and there are various bits with green on grey which are hard to read)
- A guide to making and submitting a template – either in step-by-step form, or a video
For the first one, if there's an admin interface for customising the theme and layout, and you don't mind giving me credentials, my username is "mikesaunders".

Improvements to the look of the extensions-templates-website has to be done within the buildout hosted on github.com:
The theming lives here:
And the policy of the site is hosted here:
Thus it is necessary that you get a clone of the github-repo, create a Plone instance with buildout and run a Plone instance in debug mode.
You need to follow the instructions for theme development here then:

@Mike I installed the npm and worked on the css for the 'log in / register' box. There is a space between this both entries now. Hope that helps.
If you want to work yourself on the css I could give you some hints to setup your test-/dev-environment.

Mike Saunders, can we get a status update on what's been done and what upcoming steps you envision?
Anything that urgently needs doing? Then we can factor that in accordingly :-)

To add on that, we might also do some wider outreach, collect feedback and proposals from the community and try to work on the things jointly - things don't necessarily have to end up at your desk only, Mike
