Tasks

  • Review Glossary, point out Glossary items for which help is available elsewhere or that I don't understand. Those entries will be listed at User_talk:JDCohen#Glossary. Now complete through M.
  • Review Special pages to see if appropriate ones are in this index and have help pages.
  • More formatting
    • paragraphs
    • formulas
    • advanced / css
  • Review http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Html metawikipedia:Help:HTML_in_wikitext (this literally could mean going through all the metawikipedia help pages one by one and seeing what could be linked to or needs to be brought to AboutUs). List of all pages in the metawikipedia Help Namespace is at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Allpages?from=&namespace=12
  • Review AboutUs FAQs, add entries as appropriate
  • Review AboutUs help categories, add entries as appropriate
  • Review Category:AboutUs:Templates
  • Review wikipedia:Help:Contents#For_editors
    • Add entries as appropriate, with multiple headings, if appropriate
  • Where duplicate headings link to different pages, consider eliminating an entry
  • Sectional links for longer pages, like AboutUs:Basic wiki formatting WikiTour
  • The following are ideas on formatting / appearance of this HelpIndex
    • in source text for this section, change to css
    • perhaps create template to be used for links to (metawikipedia)
    • Category-style alpha TOC; perhaps best if this could float; but floating is probably incompatible with multiple columns because the index would cover up part of the right-hand column(s). See next bullet point.
    • turn the index into multi-columns (takes less time to find right place). But probably incompatible with floating index.
  • Consider replacing duplicate links (different entries that link to same place) with cross references to the same entry, so that there's only one link. (Makes it easier to link to a different place -- only need to change one link.)
  • In the future, the help pages with multiple topics (BasicWikiFormatting) can be broken up so permalinks can work for the sub-sections - and transcluded back together so BasicWikiFormatting still works.
  • Are all pages pointed to by HelpIndex in Category:AboutUs_Help?
  • AboutUs 2.0 should arrive Tuesday the 18th of March. All of the help pages need to be reviewed, if necessary, updated. see Get_help_pages_ready_for_CompostUs for how we're organizing this (starting from a copy/paste of this page). TedErnst (talk) 14:22, 17 March 2008 (PDT)
