Sidebars: Do we need them?

Reported by Matias Korhonen | March 11th, 2009 @ 12:17 AM | in 0.2 (Alpha 2)

Is the side bar still necessary?

At the moment they are used for (in the user view):

  • Login

Can be replaced by adding a link in the header. Possibly we can use AJAX to show a popup with the login (or if JS is disabled we can redirect to a login page)

  • Link to user profile

We could easily fit a small link in the header, near the navigation

  • Link to administration

Again, a link in the navigation would be easy to fit, all it needs to say is 'Admin'

  • Links to the atom feeds

Do we need these? Or can we just have a feeds link somewhere which takes you to a page which details the feeds options. Most people will use the auto discovery tags anyway...

And in the admin view:

  • For navigating the admin listings

Use the normal navigation? And have a link to 'View Site'? This would be good preparation for having a separate admin backend.

  • For a key of symbols

Lets just get rid of this, or replace it with something more subtle (did I hear someone mention AJAX?)
