## SME Archive - SME Archived pages (any pages we want to keep but are historical in nature and not necessarily relevant to the current releases)

Latest revision as of 22:02, 15 February 2013

The following is an outline of proposed categorisation and hierarchical structure for the wiki pages for SME Server. This is based on the existing pages, some of which still need review and or merging together but at least if they are all categorised together in the right place we can see the wood for trees and work towards sorting them out.

If it doesn't say page after it in the following list it is a category.

Short form category names and longer description shown. Put explanatory text and description on the category page itself.

While there is quite a lot of work to move all the existing pages into this structure particularly the howts and contribs, once done most of them would be reasonably static so trying to template the categorisation as has been suggested might be a bit over the top and more hard work than it is worth. Every page would still need altering initially to template them.

We could template skill levels and contrib/how to in a similar strip to language so every page has a clear description at the top. While we may get mixed contribs and hosts in skill or categorisation categories, when someone clicks through to the page they would at least be given an understanding at the top of that page.

The category tree is created by putting Category refs to the parent category on the sub category page as if it was an ordinary page.

Category 'bread crumbs' appearing at the bottom of the pages is a wiki function affected only by the chosen skin and therefore a user preference I believe
