Clean boxes

I took this code from wikieducator:User:KTucker (and added different links) - I like the clean, compact look, and I can imagine using this style for boxes on the main page, maybe with a different font size.

Example links

If we use such a style extensively, we can make a new template to add to those at Help:Notices. Wikieducator has a template just for the style parameters, called {{round corners}} - that's another useful approach.) --Chriswaterguy 18:09, 7 December 2011 (PST)

Expandable sections

The expandable sections are also nicely done on wikieducator:User:KTucker, along the lines of {{pv project}}:

...and might be great for the main page, allowing people to quickly find more info on our mission, recent news etc, while keeping the page uncluttered and easy to browse.

Here's an adapted version (proof of concept and a bit random):

This could sit alongside portal boxes, for a combination of nice visuals with the easy access info of the dropdowns. --Chriswaterguy 18:09, 7 December 2011 (PST) --Chriswaterguy 18:09, 7 December 2011 (PST)
