I like it. Although the color scheming and themeing needs work. But the
layout is good and I do agree with having the most used and wanted items
clearly visible and in the users' face.

My layout examples are only proposals of layout. Still working on an
actual website example mockup which as mentioned, hopefully I'll be able
to upload and link this afternoon.

My layouts are very traditional in appearance which I also thought may
be of some benefit due to ease-of-use and navigation for particularly
new users/members. But I guess we'll leave it up to feedback from the
community and fellow Ubuntu Studio users.

Here's a few I have so far.





Obviously, they're not to any scale and are designed to give a rough
idea of where things could be placed.

Also, something else to consider, if we are going down the route of
Drupal, what version will we using?

I'm also hoping to get a test site up and running this week on my web
server so I can tinker with a few things.
