Main website has a problem: Most commonly clicked links

Post by Artman40 »

Problem with main Factorio website is that what people are going to click most frequently are "forums" and "wiki".

Yet their seem out of place compared to rest of the website. Your eye naturally doesn't first glosses over these links as the other buttons are more visible and prominent. Should it be better if they'd look just like "game" "merch" "blog" and "support" buttons? Even better: they should be colored differently considering that they're the most clicked buttons.

I rarely click the forums or wiki buttons. I just have them bookmarked separately. Do you have actual data about what buttons are clicked most often?

Good point. Guess my personal experience got in the way.

Only the mod portal and main site look the same, wiki and forum have different layouts. A strong point of the current solution is uniform positioning and uniform look over all sites.
