    I like the fat footer.

    Some random questions and suggestions:

    • Demo sounds a bit "business-y"... Couldn't it be named "Playground" (since I suppose it is the link to playground.xwiki.org anyway)?
    • The first group of links in the Documentation column is the only one without a title, and for this reason it looks a bit misplaced. As a quick fix, I'd move them to the bottom of the column, under the title "Miscellaneous" (or something like that).
    • Also in the Documentation column: in my opinion, the natural order (wrt the amount of knowledge) is: User's Guide, Admin's Guide, Dev's Guide.
    • In the Development column: I'm not sure "Playing with XWiki" is the right title for the second group, I'd go for something more serious here. 
    • General: I think the order of the topics should be consistent as much as possible in the menu and footer.

    Stupid question: Why do we need such a footer if all these entries are available from the menus at the top?

    I feel it may make the page more heavy than it could be, especially on pages that have little content and where you see both the header and footer.

    I don't have a strong opinion right now but I'm just curious about the rationale for the fat footer.

      It's like a constantly available site map. It helps the user discover the site, because it gives a good overview of the available information (here, you can see it all at once, while the upper menu can be explored one entry at a time). Also, normally it's not very intrusive, because such footers are supposed to appear in smaller print and lower contrast.

      This footer is supposed to be only on the Main page. This way the user has a quick overview on the topics the website is covering. Please see

    'Get involved' is the only menu item that ask the user to do something being the only verb (mm except download). It will be a nice idea to differentiate it somehow, or to find another place for it. Maybe a different color or bgcolor or as a subtle button and not a menu item.
