Wiki Day ? (12 posts)

    I have suggested on the docs list that we have a wiki day to address documentation issues.
    If you think you can help at all - and if you use WP you probably can - please check the list and we'll see what we can put together ?

    Great idea, Podz-aroonie! Count me in.

  3. Out of curiosity, wouldn't it be better to have a Codex day?

    Yea, same thing really.
    What I'm thinking is:
    - try to get some interest
    - set a date
    - both ask for particular points and find some holes in what's there
    - do it
    It's the first bit ... if you are reading this, or you have said "Why can't we do a wiki page" ..... we need you.

    I just registered to the mailing list. I'll chek it out later, though. In the mean time, I'd like to suggest "A Tour Inside Admin Panel". I don't think we have it already, do we? It'll be the one which will include screenshot and explain all the stuff that is the screenshot.

    Sounds good - the quicktags (and the more.......) could probably do with something specific

    I'll gladly help Podz but feel [probably like a lot of others I imagine] that I have nothing to offer.
    I just don't know enough really, but as I say,, I will gladly help out where I can :)

    I'm sure a lot of people would like to help, and think they know zip - but that's not true.
    (This isn't aimed at you Shadow !)
    Look at your blog.
    - Is there anything there that gave you a bit of trouble but you've now got the answer ?
    - Does your CSS look great in FF and IE because of a trick you learned here ?
    - Is there anything at all you could describe for the wiki ?
    Look at the Wiki.
    - Look at the FAQ. What's missing ? Add the question (and even an answer) to that page
    - Look at existing pages - are they good enough ?
    (Point#1 - I'm not after punctuation experts here, okay ?)
    - Are the pages good enough but you've a sentence or two which would make it even better ?
    What the wiki is not about is for you to think you have to write great chunks of stuff. A line of two may be all that is needed.
    And if you don't want to mess with the wiki, email your writings to me and I'll put it into codex.
