Hi Stefan, all
Thanks for the suggestions re layout. I am working (with Johan) on some text content for the journal at the moment, will post more on this asap. A few random thoughts about layout issues: I think we need to reflect on what is going to be featured in the journal now as that will influence the layout. Since it will be a while before we have fully-formed long papers the content for now will mostly be made of short or medium-size texts and groupings of texts. So far the only content I have seen has been quite political / activist, so that might set the tone, influence the look and feel as well...?
@ Everyone: dear CSPP community, now is the time to start thinking whether you would like to contribute short / medium texts on the issues we are interested in. Please refer to the draft CFP for a sense of what is needed. It would be good to have proposals and suggestions made on the list, thanks.
@ George D: any news on those texts you mentioned we could practise peer reviewing on? We now have a password protected site to post text to...
@ StefanMn: can we post files (odt, pdf) to the plone site or do we have to paste into the text box? Thanks for advising. Regarding who will do the layout, that's an excellent question, and if there is no obvious candidate (I take the question as meaning that you would rather it was not you, sorry if I misunderstand) then that def. militates in favour of a more minimalist approach...

Hi Mathieu and all!

I was wondering if we could have boxes with text or visuals
like in Biella's first example? From StefanMn's response below
this does not seem possible..?
BTW: While clicking around a bit I stumbled over
This is also a Plone site. See
for links to other stylish Plone sites based on a certain Plone
So to me it looks like that there *is* a lot possible even in this
area. It still needs someone who does it and most of all an idea of
what we need.
