I do not found where we was speaking of that, but the https://wl.widelands.org/wiki/LinksPage/ page is still not visible in any menu of the website/homepage.

It was this thread: French widelands website

I still have this on my topic. But i am awaiting that the LinksPage get some more content. As i remember and understand Jaypad would look for it? If you think a link like "Ext. Links" in the main menu is enough, i could do it the next few days.

Yes, i ask an entry like "External links" in a menu. Reading the old posts, that seems you and others, was okay with that.

Jaypad had stop all his projects for months due to lack of time (family, work, and another personal thing).

Why do you wait more content in the links page? 14 is not enough?

PS: einstein website is down

Ah, ok. Real life is much importand.

Hm, most content of the page is linked elsewhere or points to project related things. I believe you want a link that points directly to the header "Unofficial Widelands Sites" (so "not directly project related"). I think the best way to do this is to split the Links page into two separate pages:

  1. Project Links (contains project specific links to launchpad and so on)
  2. External Links (contains the links which are actual beneath the header "Unofficial Widelands Sites")

And then create a menu entry in main menu like:

  • Links (string in main menu)
    • Project Links
    • External Links

Are you, and others, ok with this suggestion?

I was just asking a direct acces to the Links page, but yes i agreed with the split and the two entries in a menu.

Since we have only two (one down) links who are not the ones from launchpad/sourceforge/transiflex (you host nothing so?) ... that will look pretty poor but i'm okay with that.

How about just having a "Links" entry on the bottom of the "The Game" menu?

Due to lack of space it would be better to place it in an already existend menu entry.

I will add it then to the menu entry "The Game".

I see it, thanks.

What about Einstein website who is down? I see Einstein13 is always active here, did he not read this page and did not saw his website is down?

Thanks for adding this.

If we don't hear from Einstein in a bit, maybe send him a personal message. He might not be reading this section of the forum.
