It's not like an FTP file where you can just upload a file and it's present unfortunately. But it's quite easy to create a new page.

Code: Select all

Find a section you want to add your stuff to and click on it.

Then click on the "Edit" option at the top of the page.

You can now insert a new link on the page by entering it at the appropriate place (A-Z order please) by using the format:

* [[Link Name]]

Save the page.  Your new link is there.  Click on it and you can copy & paste in your text from the .TXT file.

I think the things in 'Applications' are 'Tools' and you still need real apps.

Yeah don't most people think of productivity programs when you say apps? The likes of Papyrus, Degas Elite, Devpac & Quartet (in my mind) would be apps whereas things like copiers would be Utilities.

Add a separate Internet section in the applications and then from there have a new page with all of these on it?

Trying to save the Main Page from being too over-crowded from the off.

Change applications to programs and then make subtitles as tools, productivity, internet and so on.

Or to make the main section even more general just call it Software. That way it also covers things like Hard Drive and CD-ROM drivers. As for sub-categories, personally I would suggest:-

Graphics (e.g. Degas, Neochrome)
Music (e.g. Quartet, Protracker)
Text (e.g. Calamus, Tempus, 1st Word)
Programming (e.g. GFA, Devpac)
Internet (e.g. CAB, Sting)
Disk Utilities (e.g. FCopy, MSA)
OS (e.g. Magic, Mint, NVDI, NAES)

Any other suggestions?

I'll go with the flow. Easy enough to sort out and it means it's easier for people to find stuff :)

Sounds good.
Maybe differ between OS (TOS, MagiC, MiNT, MultiTOS) and facelift (different AES': Geneva, XAAES, NAES - different desktops: Gemini, Jinnee, Teradesk - several enhancements: Nvdi, Speedo-Gdos, mouse accelerators).

I'd suggest putting this thread into 'website discussions'.

Hoping to expand the Wiki section into a mutliple section area and make it a public forum as soon as Silver Surfer (or anyone else with super mod/admin powers?) can find the time to do it.

Along the lines of:

Wiki - Discussion
Wiki - New Ideas
Wiki - Corrections Made or general QA on it

This request is as above, when Silver Surfer can get around to sorting it out.

Not a problem Madonna .. and GGN's work on the new formatted list style for the DBUG disks is looking really nice too.

Bodkinz - I've updated many lists with extra info (like hidden files, unlisted games, reset screens etc) so may be good to confer with you to add even more info?

Using Wikimedia is not that easy!

It would be nice to have a place in the Atari Forum Wiki to experiment without disturbing. This is refered as a sandbox in wikipedia.

Thanks

I know .. using tables makes it a lot, lot easier but without a "insert table" button I have to keep using the same routines over and over again :(

Silver Surfer .. do we have this 'sandbox' feature installed or can it be installed without any fuss?

Also thinking of adding all the non game menus too (mod/kids/educational/utils etc)... anyone else got any comments about this?

:cheers: :thumbs:


OK would it be easier to have a separate Games - Cheats and then split the Compacted Disks into two new sections, one for games and one for anything else ?

Erm ..you didn't .. I typed it in but somehow it's given it to you :)

Weird!


*Edit*:

Those two new sections have been created.

Also nicked the damn fine idea of using the table format from the DBUG list and used it on the Cynix and ABB listings. Do they look easier on the eye to read?

I'm glad someone understands Wiki table formatting as it means I can use them a lot more often now - especially for level / cheat codes :)
