==== Content for home page ====
For Carousel up top, there are several options, which we can rotate in and out depending on what we want to highlight at any given time:
*Campaign banner, linking to donate
**during campaign, might also want to have https://creativecommons.net/figures if up to date
*Jesse Dylan video http://creativecommons.org/videos/a-shared-culture
*Power of Open, linking to http://thepowerofopen.org/ (either banner, see attached for example, or book cover)
*Global Summit (wiki page would have to be updated with wrap-up, photos etc.)
*(ML) Another permanent one in the phase 1 deck is something about the licenses
*if significant, a current CC Talks With (http://creativecommons.org/interview/)
*same for news item from the blog (ie. YouTube adoption, government data, etc.)
For 3 buckets:
*Global Network - CC Affiliate Network http://wiki.creativecommons.org/CC_Affiliate_Network
*a featured case study http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Case_Studies
*CC swag/goodies/store (w/ actual picture of swag)
*(ML) I think the reason the "partners" thing is in the p1 mockup is the same reason we created https://creativecommons.org/who-uses-cc -- board wants to see famous names. Maybe can be folded into case studies bucket.
Let's make sure the verticals (culture, science, edu, gov) are linked to in menu drop-down up top.
For get involved options at bottom, flickr icon should be changed to identi.ca, maybe add newsletter somehow (http://creativecommons.org/newsletter). Google + is probably inevitable, once they roll out for org's.
=== Post-summit Redesign of Creative Commons Donor site ===
* 10/7 INTEGRATE CIVICRM: integration of design elements from main website redesign completed for pre-testing of campaign soft launch
=== Post-Campaign Launch Redesign of Other Sites ===
''goal for each is to incorporate key elements from redesign, but start from and stay very close to native theme of relevant software''
* 10/14 WIKI
** reality assessment on the integration
* 10/21 LABS: labs/other CC sites using wordpress multiuser
** What sites must stay and which must leave?
* 10/28 SEARCH
** Is this staying?
** Needs a reality assessment on continuing.
