     21== What goes in the sidebar? ==
     23The idea of this sidebar is global navigation.
     25=== A box with "personal links" ===
     27When logged out, this will be a login/signup widget.
     29When logged in, it will show links to my messages, my profile, my pictures, my preferences, edit my profile, etc. And it will tell: "You are logged in as <username+picture>" (this is important, because more than one person may share the computer, and all of them can have different accounts).
     31=== Search box with options ===
     33By default, it will go to people quicksearch, but it has options for groups search, forums search, locaton search, multisearch.. (options should not clutter)
     35=== Community Links ===
     37These go to forum, galleries, etc.
     39=== Help / About / Feedback.. ===
     41All of this..
     43== How is this different from the sidebar we already have? ==
     45The sidebar will not be considered as part of the page content, but as a global element that looks the same on every page. With our current layout, the sidebar will always appear as part of the page content, because it is "under the roof" of the main navigation menu and teaser.
     48== On which pages does the sidebar appear? ==
     50Either on all pages, or on those which have enough horizontal space. For instance, profiles and map search will be happier to use all the horizontal space for content (two text columns, or a lot of space for the map). For these, we can use other solutions like NavigationDropdowns .
