It seems pretty pointless to have a huge orange banner taking permanently 30% of screen estate (see pic)
Thanks for your feedback.
Discourse gives the opportunity to customize
footer. I wanted to have a consistency between the main website and the discourse website: make this external platform more integrated.
I implemented this orange banner in order to separate the 2 menus (ezplatform.com and discourse menu).
I understand you wanting to have a consistent design.
Otoh I think that forum users will care more about having a useable forum than the same exact design across all eZ web properties.
I could live with the big banner if it was only on the forum homepage, or it it was possible to have a ‘close’ icon to have it go permanently away after having seen it once.
