Redesign Notes - Package page

  • Ratings is rating really much use? It's hard to know what is being rated - quality, openness, interestingness, format. Suggest removing and focus on comments / discussion.
  • Comments - Suggest move to a separate tab and rename 'Questions and Comments'
  • Comments - Display number of comments on button to draw user in
  • Comments - Add hint to new page suggesting what sort of comments/questions people should make
  • Getting the data - Can we make the download (Resources) section clearer or more prominant? This seems to be the primary purpose of this page for a casual user.
  • Getting the data - 'resources' is unclear term, just call it 'Downloads & Resources?'
  • Getting the data - Add a hint explaining what they are.
  • Groups - Suggest renaming collections so users get the message they are curated
  • Tags - Should be able to add a tag directly via ajax (as per flickr)
  • Title - Name of package gets lot in the buttons (edit etc) and the package slug id
  • Buttons - move to top right
  • API / package slug - Create new API section the explains the slug id and how to access via datapkg etc
  • Completeness - If a package is missing a description / licence / download then display a prominent message in the header asking passing users to add the missing info
  • Meta data - rename 'About this package' and collect all such data into a single table
  • New users - add a welcome / intro message if users are new to ckan (cookie)
