Arch website design inconsistency

Hi!

I've just spotted a little design inconsistency. On the 'Home' page, as well as 'Packages' and 'Download', the links in the navbar all get underlined when hovered.
The pages 'Forum', 'Wiki', 'Bugs' and 'AUR' do not have this style.

Sorry for nitpicking, but it isn't that hard to solve afaik smile

Evert.

Re: Arch website design inconsistency

Yeah.  The underlying problem is that the four sections you noted are all separate projects driven by different engines and development teams.  As I've quipped before, Arch Linux is a bunch of separate projects flying in loose formation.

@OP, if it really bothers you, some of the other interface options actually remove those links entirely.  I have been using "air" for a couple weeks now.  Not sure if it is better, but it is certainly not worse.

Well, I know that those sections rely on different engines, but it's just a matter of inserting one line of css in the appropriate file, isn't it?
I just checked, they all use the same css. All the css entries are even made '!important' so that the style of the page doens't interfere with the navbar.

 * We're forcing all generic selectors with !important

I just wanted to note it, I'm not getting irritated by it.
And, the theme 'air' is just for the forum, isn't it?

I am really not sure, as I have not tried to change the others... maybe you are right.  I just spend the greatest amount of time in the forums, so I change the way it looks from time to time.

If the other sections would change theme too, it would require an awesome cross-engine styling framework, and a central user management. (Which isn't the case tongue )
