Thanks for the keyword BoostBook?! I had to use a search engine now to find http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_35_0/doc/html/boostbook.html. How am I supposed to find the BoostBook? documentation starting at the homepage http://www.boost.org/? I've been clicking on every category including development and documentation but without a search engine I would have never found it?

Boost Home -> Documentation -> Tools -> BoostBook?

At Boost Home -> Documentation there is this list:

  • Tools
    • Boost Jam
    • Boost Build

This list tells me that there are two tools (namely Jam and Build). I never thought of clicking on Tools to check if there are more than two tools. It would be better if there are either no tools listed at all (then I would have surely clicked on Tools) or the entire list which can be found when clicking on Tools is put there (and not only Jam and Build which made me think there are no other tools).

An excerpt from a related mailing list post:

Currently it is not clear that the 'Tools' bullet is a link to a page with all the tool documentation links and user thinks that Boost Jam & Boost Build are the only two documented (or existing) tools.

Some ideas:

  1. Remove Boost Jam & Boost Build links and leave just the 'Tools' link.
  2. Add an 'All tools...' link below the Boost Build link.
  3. Integrate the whole http://beta.boost.org/doc/tools.html web page into its parent page at http://beta.boost.org/doc/.

My choice would be 3.

There is a similar problem with the links on the right side of the http://beta.boost.org/doc/ page where similar ideas apply and my suggestion would be to list all the tools below the Tools parent menu item.
