Title: FAQ issues ...
Post by: na_th_an on April 02, 2003, 04:23:11 PM
Just to know your opinion... Wouldn't it be better if we organised the faq in sections? Y'know, I've seen the reboot link in there and I think it would have been better to create a "miscellaneous" section and stick it into. As I said, I'd vote to create sections covering GFX, Video, Timers, Compiler Issues and the like.

What do you think?

Yeah, I think this would be times better, because then it's more organized....and you can find things faster

er... are you talking about the "new" FAQ system? As long as it stays being a limited WIKI system and the thing is functional... I have no complains at all.  :roll:

But I think that -as always- the last word belongs to Mr. wildcard, the site admin.

Yes looks great. Its nice and organised now. Now I need to either add FAQ next to QBOHO or change the FAQ next to search.. or both ;-)

I would only add it after QBOHO and not replace the FAQ next to the search... It seems a good place we could send newcomers to have them posting properly ;)

Thats a good idea. I defintely need to edit the forum FAQ so its not so boring and more useful and so that I don't need to have a forum rules guidelines everywhere ;-)

If I wanted to post some code into the FAQ, what would I have to do???

someone probably already asked this... but why do i need a password to look at half the topics?

Noticed the (?) attached to a link? This means that that keyword doesn't exist into the database, thus if you click on one of these, the WIKI will try to create a new topic based on that keyword. And since to create new pages requires a password to work... well, you understand now.

I know that using the "401-authentication needed" system somewhat break the rules behind a true WIKI, but we've already discussed that here: http://forum.qbasicnews.com/viewtopic.php?t=1049&start=20 (remove the "start" parameter to see the full topic)

And now that I've thinking the concept behind this, it looks more like an useful code collection than a true FAQ. But... hey! It might work! (http://www.handykult.de/plaudersmilies.de/happy/xyxthumbs.gif)

Ak00ma: PM wildcard for authorization.

I've updated the FAQ a little bit with some articles I posted before the forum was hacked and that I had somewhere in that untidy sea my HDD is.

I encourage you to check them and make as many corrections as needed.

Just one idea:

Wouldn't be a list of the 10 latest FAQ additions on the FAQ main-page good, would it???
What do you think???

Nice idea, but someone has to code it ;) ;)

Hex coded the FAQ, right???

Then it would be very easy for him to add this lil' feature...

Exactly. However, I think that I know enough PHP to add that feature to the WIKI system. It's just matter of time, though... (I'm *very* busy right now, and I bet that June will be a f***in' hectic month too. AAAAAAUGH!)


PD: and this goddamned forum giving me this "invalid_session" error every two posts is really getting on my nerves. (http://www.handykult.de/plaudersmilies.de/pissed.gif)

I'm coding in PHP myself....I have such a feature on my site, too, and it's not that hard to code it and it takes not long

In fact, it's just a call to a SQL query. But (as I stated) I'm darn busy... plus I don't have direct access to the code of this WIKI, and since wildcard seems also busy with RealLife too...

I think the term wiki refers to a database that is open to user submissions...

Wow... I got a huge lecture from Hex when I asked that very question a while ago when Hex&co were talking about setting it up... evidently Relsoft you're too high of rank to warrant an explanation from Hex... unless he's still trying to post but getting INVALID_SESSIONs  :rotfl:
