As discussed in our last Commons meetings, the CAC shows a "Take a Tour" link in a "Getting Started" widget to the right of the slider after login.

Since the tour is out of date, I think we should link to more current material, like the Codex -- . I'd link to that with a button that says "Frequently Asked Questions" or something like that.

Here are screenshots of the logged-out and logged-in view with the text changed to "Frequently Asked Questions".

In terms of purpose, it feels a bit off to me that we'd link to the Codex here for all visitors. The Codex is filled with useful how-tos for members, and I think it's OK to show it for logged-in users. I don't think it makes much sense for logged-out users. Perhaps the link should be removed when logged out?

Okay -- good point. Let's leave the FAQ for logged in users.

For logged-out users, what do you think of linking to the Use Cases page -- -- with the text "Learn more"

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges about 5 years ago

Yes, I like that much better. I also fixed some of the unpleasant punctuation for logged-out users. New screenshot attached.
