Yet another batch of small improvements

This is abysmal. I was actually glad to present the new little improvements we introduced to Letters and texts this week and now it seems like the only thing I can see is all that has not been done yet. Sorry about that, I will proceed with it next week when the 2 volumes that are (to my despair) not yet in print will actually stop haunting my desk.

The few neat novelties are:

  • I have begun to clean the homepage, simplify the text, try to make the message about the content of the edition clearer, especially to people who land there for the first time. Any feedback on that is welcome. I am also working on the images that should appear on the homepage in the future, the aim being to get over the current appearance of being author-centered. This will take another couple of weeks, but I have a few ideas, as do some other persons on the team brainstorming with me on that;
  • The two authors we are currently adding are now appearing on the authors’ list: Jean Albert Euler and Immanuel Hermann Fichte;
  • The search has been redesigned in order to fit completely on one screen without having to scroll down to find further fields; full-text search was put on top;
  • You can now click on “new query” after any search without having to go back/through the menu.

It does not seem like much when brought down to 4 bullets… but I have also worked on finalizing presentation texts (for instance here) and translating existing presentation texts (like here or here). The missing bits will follow. Patience…
