[Note: to be completed when I can get back in to finish the edits I'd started on the page]
[Note2: For anyone else reading along, Mike has deleted the post this was a response to.]
When you hover your cursor over a Hyperlink it changes to a pointing hand, the Hyperlink becomes underlined, and the Pagename pops up.
If you click on the Hyperlink then the chosen Page opens in the main display pane.
left this out -- it's covered by: "The concepts of hyperlinks, images and downloadable files will be familiar to anyone who makes use of the Internet, including this Knowledge Base or FHUG. " -- nobody who is thinking of editing the wiki need this utterly basic Internet user instruction.
Also "A Trace of Hyperlinks to the Pages visited appears in a bar across the top " is nothing to do with editing links and media, it's about navigating and should be in a 'How to use the wiki' section somewhere, not here
Both elements should be removed; I'll do it as soon as I can edit the page again.
As the section talks about creating the links using the Link Wizard (which handles the navigation through the namespace), no -- not covered. If the syntax is more widely useful, it ought to be in the namespace section...?
I'm not the person to ask -- I lost the will to live 1 minute into the video when I hadn't been told anything useful...
(Probably why I never watch instructional videos -- they're always too long winded/less information dense than a piece of text).
More seriously, if we're going to include videos (and some people will find them very useful), they need to be 'exactly to the point' of the section they're included in or else in a section off on their own -- and we ought to be consistent about making them available throughout.
[*] Other link shortcuts
I've condensed all the shortcuts into one table, so all below Shortcut to Amazon.co.uk is not needed.
What do you think?
Agreed and extraneous material -- should we have a table for the Family Historian shortcut links for consistency?
[*] Alphabetic Titles
Do you now understand the difference between these and the reference book style index?
Not entirely, but we can come back to that if/when we look at the overall navigation features.
Agreed and deleted
Linking an Image
I don't understand the first sentence - where did that come from?
I wrote it...
Have you tried using the Media Files Popup to link an image via the link options it offers?
The %20 feature is not working. Maybe Jane can fix it?
Media Manager and Media Files Window
Does this need any screenshots of the two dialogues?[/list]
Again, if we're going to do this we should be consisten -- and think about whay we're providing images. They would have to be sufficiently annotated to add some value.
