Knowledge Base Editing ~ Active Sections

Introduction

>>>

Each Knowledge Base section is allocated one of the root Section Namespaces, and each root Namespace comprises a similar set of standard Namespace Pages.

The Namespaces are used in Page Formatting ~ Links to Elsewhere such as [[ancestralsources:alphabetic_index]]Ancestral Sources Alphabetic Index. These names are case insensitive and space characters become underline characters, so [[AncestralSources:Alphabetic Index]] links to the same page as [[ancestralsources:alphabetic_index]]. The How To Guides and Other Resources hold the majority of the pages that provide the Knowledge Base help. The Frequently Asked Questions is a composite of all the How To Guides and Other Resources FAQ subsections and will rarely need changing. The Glossary of Features maintains a logically grouped index of pages about common topics, with "stub" pages or Alternative Index Entries to link back to other section pages where necessary. Examples are Ancestral Sources and Julian Dates. The Glossary of Features opens with a Popular Topics group, which contains entirely "stub" page links. The Knowledge Base Titles page provides a complete alphabetic index of page headline titles for the whole Wiki, and has the following code.

Root Pages & Namespaces

>>>

There are a few pages that do not fit neatly into the above structure, but rarely need altering, or perhaps need relocating. A special homeKnowledge Base Home page holds the welcome page text displayed when the Wiki is first opened. The special sidebarSidebar page contains the hyper-links presented in the main sidebar. The extras:pushfilePushfile Plugin page is required by the Pushfile Plugin Macro. The insertpagesInsert Pages namespace holds pages predominantly shared by Downloads and Links pages for installation instructions or other multiple use details. The wiki:dokuwikiDokuWiki and wiki:syntaxFormatting Syntax and wiki:welcomeWelcome to your new DokuWiki namespace pages give details of DokuWiki. The playground:playgroundPlayGround page and associated pages are used for experimentations. The gedcomcensus namespace holds the redundant details of the obsolete Gedcom Census program. The about:alt & about:family_historian & about:other_nonfh_software namespaces are currently unknown.
