<assorted complaints about poor navigation in the Documentation area>
I've just made an update to the web site with some fixes to the
* Tutorial link is more prominent. I put the Campfire graphic there
to help draw attention to it.
* Search widget for just Documentation in the docs portlet.
* "Grok Documentation" links to the Documentation home page.
* Portlet Header text is a bit more readable.
* Two PloneHelpCenter bug fixes:
- restructured-text is no longer a false option for the Description
- The Audiences field is once again useable. You can assign content
to one of three Audiences ATM:
* Advanced Developer
* Server Administrator
Still more to do, in particular, if you are in a Tutorial, once you
view the content pages you can't easily get back to the Tutorial
overview page. It's late though, I'll fix that another day.

I think it would be ideal we used icons + extra bit of colour to
differentiate each of the four main areas of the web site. Perhaps
with navigation tabs across the top, and a custom Portlet for each of
the four areas. I think caveman icons in the style of "new" Grok
character could work. But maybe we will have 5 or 6 sections to our
web site later this year (e.g. Blog or Grok Applications sections).
