Description

Hi,

a new extension submitter has a hard time finding how and where to submit new ones. The least that can be said is that "About" link is not an obvious entry point.
Then, the description of the submission process is an English unstructured text which obfuscates the information.

This page shoud be more friendly and available in various languages.

Best,

You propose to add "Login" to the main menu? Cloph, IIRC you had concerns. What was it?

Hello,

I'd suggest to change the "Templates & Extensions" web page (https://www.libreoffice.org/discover/templates-and-extensions/).

That page has two separated paragraphs, one for Extensions, the other for Templates. They are mutually exclusive.
Change that page so that both paragraphs are visible at once and have only one common link to the "Template and Extensions" web site.

Otherwise, the user understands there are two separated sets of pages, one for the Extensions, the other for the Templates, which is not the case any more since the web site changed. This brings misunderstandings from users (like me :)

Best,

Also, on the Extensions page, rename the "About" link to something meaningful (eg "Submit an extension or template")

Then, in the entry page, make the process immediately visible: display at once what is displayed when clicking the "Maintainer HowTo" link.

BTW, as now extensions and templates share the same web pages, change the title to Extensions & Templates.

Agreed, but let's postpone until the new website is set up

Agree with the login at the landing page (we shouldn't require to walk through menus). I made the change, feedback welcome.

BTW, as now extensions and templates share the same web pages, change the title to Extensions & Templates.

We have the menu entry "Extension" as well as what's shown in the browser's title bar. And "extensions & templates" is a bit too narrowly considered as we now also have documentation, at least. Listing all makes not much sense to me.

Dormant ;-). Would appreciate a discussion with Cloph before implementing it.
