At the moment, accessing the official documentation is quite difficult to find from the openSUSE homepage.
Let's take a look at the typical user flow.
- Types "opensuse" into their browser's address bar, then clicks first link on Google.
We are now at the opensuse.org homepage.
- After failing to find any form of documentation or support link, the user takes a stab in the dark and tries clicking the tiny "wiki" link at the bottom of the page.
We are now on the openSUSE wiki homepage.
- The user looks for a moment to see if there is a documentation link, then resorts to clicking the support link on the top left sidebar.
We are now on Portal:Support.
- A documentation link! Let's click that.
We are now on Portal:Documentation.
- Oh, another page. Then /finally/ there is the actual link to the official documentation.
Now while the user could probably have searched specifically for it, I don't think using Google as the main form of navigation for your website is the most intuitive thing to do.
Should there be some direct link added to the homepage?
