Wiki Work

Post by acryinshame » Thu Feb 11, 2016 5:44 pm

I've been taking a deep look into the WIKI and it needs a lot of work. I'm going to be working a number of pages in the near future in an attempt to get this all nice and clean and easier to use. But some pages (like the main page) I cannot edit. At the moment the main page has random information up top while the more important things users are looking for are at the bottom (like the beginner's guide link) This make navigation of the wiki difficult.

Is there an admin of the WIKI that can assist with the editing of the main page?

I have the rights to change it :)

I can tell Kovarex to give you the rights for it, if you want to (or you can do that much faster yourself, just PM Kovarex for it, it takes now till Monday or so, until he will read it).

For now I suggest that you copy the page to another and change it there, so I can take a look before changing it for the original (just send me a PM, I'm more or less home this weekend).

If so ok for you. :)

Was busy over the weekend but I'm going to go ahead and copy the main page over and make some Edits to it. I'll send some PMs in the near future with what I can come up with. Another thing I believe needs to be added is the LUA Code names for all objects as I noticed a few objects like the light have very different names then their in game name when it comes to using LUA commands. I don't have a large amount of free time any given week but spending an hour or so each week working on Wiki pages wouldn't hurt.

Made a copy and did some Edits that i felt made the main page easier to navigate.

It's all good. Just take a look when u get a chance. Honestly i started using my main page rather than the one on the site. I just find it simple. then again i made the main page to fit my taste so it just makes sense i would like it better lol

Guys, why did you drop language template from the main page? It is near impossible for new visitors to discover none-english versions by now.

last change on main page was kovarex in September 2015. So this is something new.

and btw even the "version history page" stopped with 0.11. There's really a lot of work to do. ^^

Honestly there is no reason to update the version history. it should just link to the version history form. But there seems to have been a change on the WIKI, maybe the template was changed and not the page itself.

I updated the Version History page to current 0.12.35 What is this Version History form you mention?

I'm a bit late to the party, but the language template is now on the top right of the main page (and every page for that matter). It's about the only thing with colors so it is quite easily spotted.
