Download Page Redesign for KVM, Qubes and More Needed

Done with the Qubes page:

Moved more into templates:

Done with KVM page:

now the downloading page is way better than before , good job well done. (f)

Just finished “dismantling” the Download page:

Next step is to actually address this:
https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,779.msg5775.html#msg5775

Maybe this can be split into smaller steps. Trying to see this from the perspective of first time visitors of whonix.org that just want to try out Whonix. On the main page or Download page (even if that would bend the term), we can show a nice graphical table about supported platforms. Recommendations per host operating system. (https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/Download_Wizard#By_Host_Operating_System) A table like this:

host operating system | knowledge | recommendation | security
Windows | newcomer | VirtualBox | for testing
Mac | newcomer | VirtualBox | for testing
Linux | newcomer | VirtualBox | for testing
Linux | advanced | KVM | for production
Qubes | advanced | Qubes-Whonix | for production

Other stuff such as download method, download anonymity, download threat models and download security would not be improved right now. Just sticking to the existing download tables. This can be implemented at a later time when we have better ideas.

Done with that:

I am not entirely happy with it. Especially not with the flow that someone visiting Whonix’s main page is experiencing. I guess the main page also could use a redesign.

Moved the list of supported platforms to the Main Page:

true it needs to redesigned with some graphical easy guides in the downloading page , for me when i remember firstly saw whonix i didnt know qubes nor kvm nor building from source code just download whonix for vbox. can u make it horizontally ? and we can add above each one a photo describing it?

i will search in the websites to take some ideas from them, i will do that on the night.

but so far u have achieved the basic part of it

regarding supported platforms on the main page u need to fix the size of it.

What do you mean by fix size?

c the edges of the table:-

ok now i checked again , the edges been fixed.

I see. Depends on browser window size. That’s why I haven’t noticed. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to do this.

what do u think about these table styles:-

2- http://designshack.net/wp-content/uploads/TT-onehub.jpg

3- http://designshack.net/wp-content/uploads/TT-mine.jpg

or its impossible to be made in wikis ? if it possible, then do u know how to program that or u need a hand help here? if u need a hand help then i will try to communicate and c what i can get.

Most likely not impossible, but it needs someone who speaks html. It’s essentially a commissional work. Nothing generic one can ask in a forum. No one will do this for free unless they’re interested to contribute to the project.

i know one hes well good in website programing but i donno which languages he knows , i have asked him already and waiting his respond.

ok . he answered me and said that he will do it but not exactly now, but soon. because he said i need to refresh the CSS+html plus am busy atm.

Was just fixed by a new volunteer.

yeah very good , at least the table now is stable when minimizing/maximizing the page. but there is minor issue in the last part of the table c the image:-

i have tried to fix it , but it looks different/difficult for me to do. i wonder if he noticed that and hope he can fix.

glade to c new volunteer :slight_smile:

Not a bug.
