Revision as of 03:20, 17 September 2013

Before we get started here, did we want to decide on a layout/skin. I like the ThinkWiki skin. I believe rt-linux is using a variant of this skin as well, or so said Ted. Or do we want to get more original?

--Wmat 05:16, 13 October 2006 (EEST)

First, how do I indent? I tried to find out using the Editing help link, but that page is empty. OK, so we need a buglist or feature request list also. OK, now to my actual comment: I think this is a good start. I'd say the site should be organized using portals. The main page should consist almost entirely of links to portals. Here is a list of possible portals: kernel, tools, distributions, hardware, companies, distributions, middleware, technologies --Tbird 21:48, 13 October 2006 (EEST)
I guess you figured out the indenting using colons to indicate number of tab stops. I agree with the portal idea, assuming you define a portal as a cluster of like content. The Main page layout is geared toward exactly that. I don't want to simply recreate the Table of Contents from the CELF Public Wiki though, I'd like to try to organize things more logically. I'll begin putting out the idea for 3 Main Content Clusters:
  1. Development Resources
  2. Industry Information
  3. Research & Development
I'll add subcategories directly to the Main page --Wmat 22:10, 13 October 2006 (EEST)

OK, I put up a basic structure for the main page based off of thinkwiki.orgs layout. I'll add in potential real headings soon for discussion.

Admin/mod

Can I speak to an admin or a moderator? If so please post on my talk page and we can speak there.

Thanks. JoshD 23:44, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

What happened to the elinux logo? I thought the logo was once a Tux penguin with headphones holding electronics with blinking lights. But today the elinux.org site logo ( http://elinux.org/upload/tux113x135.gif ) appears to be the original original unmodified Tux penguin. --DavidCary 04:50, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Hardware Pages

I'm not sure at what point a board qualifies as having "LOTS of information", enough to be given its own link under Hardware Pages, but what I do know is that BeagleBone doesn't seem to have any prominent links near the front. I suggest that a dedicated link to BeagleBone be added under this heading, but if that is deemed as giving Beagle* too much prominence then I will at least want to put a link at the top of the BeagleBoard page to direct users accordingly.

The main page is locked so it cannot be edited as we like. Morgaine 04:46, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
I've added a BeagleBone icon and link. --Wmat 22:46, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
And a cute icon it is too! :P Well done and thanks, now to add more content. Morgaine 01:22, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Page title

Would it be possible to change the main page title from "Main Page - eLinux.org" to "eLinux.org - Main Page"? The reason is that browser tabs get narrower as you gain more tabs and so only the start of each title tends to appear on labels. A tab name of "Main Page" isn't really all that helpful for finding this site among one's current tabs. :P Morgaine 19:11, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately yes, it's not possible. This is a MediaWiki-ism. --Wmat 20:46, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Ah, that is indeed unfortunate. Morgaine 04:47, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
So Wmat, how did you fix this since? I've had this annoyance with my own installation of MediaWiki. Thanks. --Inops (talk) 23:55, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
