Forum page appearance

I have to say I still don’t like how the Slicer logo looks like in the upper right corner. It does not look professional!

Is it possible with the instance we have to add a top banner with the links to the Slicer home page, downloads, documentation etc? See example in http://forum.paperpile.com/

I think all we need is larger “3D Slicer” text. See for example https://community.asana.com/.

The banner above the Paperpile forum is external content. It’s useful so that you can navigate to other Slicer pages, but I don’t like it very much because this extra header takes away useful vertical space.

Ok, I edited the horizonal logo SVG and made “3D Slicer” larger. Have to upload in a post in order to try it …

edit: looks good to me.

This looks very nice, thank you. If others like it like this, too, then there is just a nitpick: I feel that the text should be moved up by a couple of pixels so that it is aligned with the sphere and not the shadow of the sphere. Maybe we could add the same type of shadow to the text - or not, as it may be more interesting to have the logo “grounded” by the shadow and the text floating in the air.

Agreed. I tweaked size and alignment to the sphere. I didn’t add the shadow partly because the svg software I’m using right now doesn’t support it.

Thank you, it looks perfect to me now.
