Greetings, I just installed WP. Then decided I did not like the URL. So I searched on moving WP. I think everything turned out fine.
However, the directions I found are not dated. I find the value of docs, posts, blogs, etc. anywhere on the web that are not dated to be of immediate questionable value. Especially in the tech world where things move fast. The one I found mentioned WP 2.0 and the directions were far out dated.
Be clear. I am not complaining about out dated info. Just undated out dated info. And not just here.
I believe we should all be dating our products. Web searching on some random topic and finding quality appearing help pages, only to find out the data is 7 years old is frustrating. And sites like that I never book mark/tag, or return to. It just appears to be unprofessional to me. Imagine going to the library and not being able to find a news paper, magazine, etc. from Feb 2001, or yesterday, because there are no dates on them?
So please consider dating WP.org docs AND your own personal site products. Info on cell phones from Cnet 2010 or 2001 may actually be what people are looking for. But how are they going to find it if people on their own sites will not date their product?
Peace and Blessings.
