Twodogs,

thanks.

Create a page for each of the main headings, with a short summary, and describing with a one liner each of the links you provide. THAT summary page will be linked off the sidebar.

Below is my recommendation for the Telecom main page. Is this on track?

Quote
Telecom (need sidebar link)
LinuxMCE uses Asterisk software to provide very powerful and flexible telephone integration. Examples:
- Get a VOIP phone line provider and an IP Phone (the Cisco 7970 even doubles as an orbiter).
- Get a VOIP phone line provider and Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) to use a standard phone.
- Use an ATA with a regular telephone line.

Phone Lines
Connecting to VOIP/SIP providers.
Link - http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Category:Phone_Lines

Analog Telephone Adapters
Hardware devices that enable standard telephones to interface with LinuxMCE and VOIP phone lines.
Link - need new wiki category

IP Phones

Telephones that connect directly to the LAN.
Link - http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Category:IP_Phones

Telecom Tutorials

Wonderful tips and tricks for telecom usage.

twodogs,

create the telecom page you've outlined and I will add it to the favourites subsection I added to the sidebar.

Awesome.

Two tasks now loom:
1. Sort the articles in "Hardware" and "Tutorials" and link them to the new pages.
2. Delete "dead" categories and obsolete pages.

We should probably be pretty brutal about item 2 - the more categories we have, the greater the chance that users will misfile articles. I'd even recommend emptying the "hardware" and "tutorials" categories by moving all the articles to our new wiki structure. The size and alphabetical organization of these categories makes them almost useless, IMO. For example, I have been looking for many moons for info on "text to speech". I finally found it right there under "M" for "Make Announcements". Our new structure will permit us to tag hardware and tutorials by function, rather than by name. 

The conservative approach would be to first tag the articles for the new wiki categories, then to make sure everyone is happy, then to delete them from the hardware and tutorials categories. The problem with this approach is that it will be a major PITA to open each of the hundred of articles and tag them, then to go back and reopen the same articles and remove the links to hardware and tutorials categories. Thoughts?

I am a gatherer. I much prefer to KEEP tags that we have, and add to them instead of removing existing tags and replace them with something else. The more links one has the better it is imho.

Then I'll just add the new tags and keep the old ones. Since I'll be looking at every wiki article ever written, what should I do if I find one that contains no content or is terminally outdated or stupid?

Apologies for the radio silence, busy with being evicted, and trying organise moving into our new home before we are on the streets *headdesk*

I like the new wiki front page, much simpler. However what do we think about putting in some more links to the installation instructions? I realise it is marked as a favourite on the side bar, but this is only for 810.

Cheers,
Matt.

No problem, sounds very serious, being evicted........

Maybe in the top box about the status of 0810 and 1004 we can make a clickable link going to the 0810 version installation wiki or the 1004 installation wiki?

I am not sure it is easily possible to have the sub-headings displayed dynamically.
It's possible. There's an extension for that. You can drill down right from the menu. It's dynamically built from the existing categories. The categories ARE the structural components of the wiki.
It does not have to be in the sidebar, it can be a separate page. Very necessary though, I would not have a wiki without it. It's easier to dynamically drill than navigate by opening several pages. It's also faster, and more comprehensive.


I am a gatherer. I much prefer to KEEP tags that we have, and add to them instead of removing existing tags and replace them with something else. The more links one has the better it is imho.
The problem with this is that the categories are the structure, so, we HAVE to recategorize as suggested http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11909.msg85208.html#msg85208

However, the categorization has to be exhaustive for each article. Each article must be tagged with all relevant categories.


Lets pretend that I insisted that the Homerun should go under TV, and you insisted that it appear under NAS We could put it in both places, just as current wiki articles can be set up to appear in "tutorials" and "hardware". But I suggest we avoid duplication if possible. ... If we have a 3-level structure, and if the index is always present at the left of the screen, then it is almost impossible to get lost.

There is a reason why shopping sites keep track of what you click on and make suggestions on what you should look at next, or what other people did following what you just did: thinking flows by association.
An article should be in as may categories at necessary.

If I just completed my install, it's just natural for me to wonder "what else" I should install before leaving the installation phase.
