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?

: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 --[[User:Tbird|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:
:::# Development Resources
:::# Industry Information
:::# Research & Development
::I'll add subcategories directly to the Main page --[[User:Wmat|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.

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

== logo ==
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 site logo ( ) appears to be the original [ original unmodified Tux penguin].

== 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.

::: I've added a BeagleBone icon and link. --[[User:Wmat|Wmat]] 22:46, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
:::: And a cute icon it is too! :P  Well done and thanks, now to add more content. [[User:Morgaine|Morgaine]] 01:22, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
== Page title ==
Would it be possible to change the main page title from "'''Main Page -'''" to "''' - 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 [[User:Morgaine|Morgaine]] 19:11, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
:Unfortunately yes, it's not possible.  This is a MediaWiki-ism. --[[User:Wmat|Wmat]] 20:46, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
::Ah, that is indeed unfortunate. [[User:Morgaine|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. --[[User:Inops|Inops]] ([[User talk:Inops|talk]]) 23:55, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
