For now, just having some content rolling in is good.The toplevel page doesn't necessarily have to contains links to all available pages. Creating a bit of a hierarchy is good. Wiki Navigation can be awkward. I'm sometimes having my own problems finding help on the syntax in the The MoinMoin Wiki docs. :-)Manuel

Yap ..Thoug correct me if I am wrong but the initial index I have put up is quite easy no ?Builders will find fast what they look for.I don't like a too big index cuz it will take you ages to read all the threads though hiding to much behind the first index is a way to keep people in 1 section only. If you do that you need superb cross navigation optios which is VERY hard to do !

Have to check that. I know it does allow you to see diffs between edited versions.Manuel

I can see you've managed a new skin, though I hope you're still working on that ?The edit window should be reduced in size (horizontal) cuz when I am typing the cursor goos behind the menu ........

It did "look" better, though I found it rather unhandy .. I kinda liked the menu on top helping you to go back to the "frontpage" fast.Also the issue with the edit page I've mentioned.

Ok switched again. :-)> The edit window should be reduced in size (horizontal) cuz when I am typing the cursor goos behind the menu ........Hmmmm... the vertical size is configurable in your UserPreferences page.http://wiki.varxec.net/UserPreferencesThe horizontal size .. I don't know. If you know CSS, you could customize several things, possibly also the size of the editor box or at least the font. Use the "User CSS URL" for your own CSS, also on the UserPreferences page.Manuel

Just caught up with the forum, and found you guy's new site. I think this is great. Took me a couple of minutes to learn how to navigate the site, but I'm looking forward to using this site. My favorites folder is big enough as it is, and hard to keep orginized, so good job on the site.I'll add some stuff once I actually have something to show for, and that I know works.Best regards,

>Someone has to go around and check the content. sometimes>stuff gets duplicated on other pages. >>For now, just having some content rolling in is good.Yeah. Also, it is nice that whatever you write in WikiWords as in CapsificatedNamesOfThings become links automatically, so it is easy to do crosslinking by just making subpages be names like HomeCockpit and always use the same name for the term everywhere so you automatically get links there. For example PolyesterResin is a subpage - so wherever one writes about resin as part of some other topic, just write it as "PolyesterResin" and it will automatically be linked to http://wiki.varxec.net/PolyesterResin :)>The toplevel page doesn't necessarily have to contains links>to all available pages. Creating a bit of a hierarchy is good.Yes, I agree. It also can be chaotic, stuff can and needs to be organized later. That's why it is important we dont add empty hierarchy there since the content is the important thing and we dont know what stuff gets added in the future anyway so it is not worth the effort if we try to organize it too much at this point. Let it evolve first :)//Tuomas

I've decided to move my dimensions info to the wiki.I think it will be much better placed there.Hope you don't mind me using the webspace for it ?If you don't like it, you can take it out again and replace it with urls or whatever.

I hope that everyone who has dimensions for other types can add them as well!I suggest to try to do a simple GIF! file like the ones you can see from F50 and 747 and a320 series. This is LIGHT on the webserver which holds the wiki and they are just as clear for builders as any other kind !!I hope to see the King Air and Cessna and a330/40 and b767 dimensions on there soon! People from around here should have those.

If people start dumping hundreds of megapixel digicam pics there, I'll intervene :)Just make sure we don't dump everything from other places there.I'd rather link to them.eg. for the 767/A320 dims at simpit.deor my 747 dims at http://cockpit.varxec.net/plans/index.htmlManuel
