What do you think about a second (stacked) banner? (sketch attached)
In my opinion it would probably be better to have Codeberg-related links in the footer of the page and to have the main menu focus on the daily used functions of Gitea. Maybe we could even redesign the footer to be a little bit more prominent. As an example, Github's design is very nice in that regard.
The best approach in my opinion is still Moritz's extended Menu which he presented in his PR to build-deploy-gitea. As this is a rather medium-to-long-term solution, for the short term we might consider to move at least some of the Codeberg-related links to the footer.
The links could even remain there as a duplication for those who intuitively look for such links in the footer, rather than in the main menu (which would include me for example 😄).
How about we keep Donate, Documentation and Codeberg Issues in the header, separate them optically a little from the Gitea links (i.e. by adding a margin-left) and add a footer that collects all important Codeberg-related links in one place, duplicating the links to Donate, Documentation and Issues?
I could write a PR for that, if you want :)
Here's a mockup of how I would imagine the footer.
I'm not sure yet where to put the language selector in this design though.
Maybe centered in the very bottom, under the small print?
Or put it as a Globe icon in the main menu? Or in the user menu that opens when clicking on the avatar?
