+1, but .. doesn't that will become a showstopper at some point in time? I mean, at some point in time we WILL release this to the public and everything needs to work for both logged-in and logged-out users.
That problem will be solved. My favorites supect is iChain, as there is another problem with current login process that curbs use of standard wiki tools to fight spammers, but that is another story. Rush is not good. Just check the: http://en.opensuse.org/Transition_guidelines * Should we use categorytree instead of navbar templates ? My answer is that as long as we don't know properties of that tool, we can't answer the question. My experiment with Category tree was just basic setup to see is it working at all. * Categorization - whole paragraph shows confusion: 1. we have no control over categories, anyone can add some 2. we can define only basic category tree layout For both we can't predict what will be needed, or push articles in certain category, just to have it categorized. Categories are like keywords, there will be as many as it is needed. All we can do is to remove duplicates that use synonyms, and change too specialized, or obscure category names to more common, easier to find. * Templates (Just as normal articles, or categories) There will be as many as it is needed. All we can do is to prevent layout charade of templates that do the same with different layout, which is already done, bring existing templates in line with general usability rules for web pages that are free available on http://useit.com and keep new creations in line with that. * Structure Not close to be known. Discussion about namespaces is not done. I promised the list, but the work doesn't go very fast. There is a lot to see around, find some software that can help sorting out current fond of articles. My opinion on namespaces is that is better to have few more and allow users to use targeted search as it is presented in http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:SDB then to have to little and start cramming stuff in available namespaces as it is now. Search (InputBox) is not the only extension that can be limited to certain namespace, so we gain better flexibility applying extensions that one project needs and the other not. Bedside existing, I would add: KDE GNOME YaST Artwork News .... The problem to find articles with default search in Main namespace can be solved: - with portal pages, that will contain list of articles that user can browse and search for particular namespace. - instructions to user how to enable search in user preferences - site map -- Regards Rajko, openSUSE Wiki Team: http://en.opensuse.org/Wiki_Team People of openSUSE: http://en.opensuse.org/People_of_openSUSE/About -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org For additional commands, e-mail: email@example.com
