I've made the following changes:
* Allowed much bigger user pictures to upload, but set a server-side
preset (the unused Square Thumbnail) to resize user pictures to
44x44, which is what 4em generated in Chrome)
* Turned on "Panelizer" and applied to article teasers -- with no
further configuration, this removed the authoring info on the
* Set up a Visual Regression Testing tool (but did the baseline at
this point, after making the previous changes)
* Applied the two remaining CSS fixes from Erik: making the user
image "display: inline-block" and giving them 4px rounded corners
* Ran the visual regression testing, you can see the results here: http://ledgersmb.org/lsmb_shots/gallery.html
Regarding best practices, I think we already have a view of content
that takes a tag name from the path to filter, so you probably
didn't need to create that. http://ledgersmb.org/topic/installation
... it looks like your view filters down to only articles, so it
shows less -- no harm having that here, especially if you want to

In preparation of the 1.5 release, I've been looking at
ways to publish installation instructions and notes.
While doing so, I found that there wasn't really a
structure for showing installation instructions on the ledgersmb.org
site. Under the Documentation menu item in the Main
menu, there's now an "Installation" link which points to
It's a new view I created by collecting all contents of
type "Article" with the tag "Installation".
Would you say that that's the right way to go? Or should I
have created a separate content type? I'm thinking that
may be overkill.
One thing that I've noted and never brought up before: I
think the "user picture" on each article is *way* too big.
It takes up a lot of valuable screen estate. Can we do away
with it in the teaser layout, only showing the textual
submission data (user and date)? Then maybe shrink the image
to 4ems-width max, with the submission data on the right of
it, instead of on the next row? (Saves some vertical more
In my browser I added two rules to achieve the bit of the user
picture in the regular ("Content") view:
I was able to achieve the bit I mean about the teaser section
with this rule:
.node-teaser .meta.submitted img
border-radius: 3px; // the
pictures look a lot more friendly when I add that
I hope you all agree this step makes the site's
content much more accessible; an improvement.
Could you put these into effect?
