Can you add a link to a "Yocto" page in the "Development Portals". I think Yocto should be there since it can be used on many hardware devices.

Thanks ssinfod

    I'm not sure I agree. Yocto is a software project that has it's own extensive wiki. All of the portal and hardware project links on the MainPage are to content internal to elinux.org. If I start putting links to external projects on the MainPage, everyone is going to want to add theirs. However, I'm not opposed to creating a page called External Projects and adding links there. I'd even add an External Projects icon to the MainPage.

      I don't want to document yocto itself.. In fact, I would like to document more specific instructions for specific hardware.

      Maybe, the way to do it could be to add a yocto section in each hardware devices (that is using yocto)...

      What do you think ?

      An idea: It would be great if we could search in the wiki pages with multiple selection filters (ex: yocto and Beagle Bone)

      Thanks

        The way to organize is to properly categorize pages. Then, if you click on Category:Yocto for example, you'd list all pages within the Yocto category. Believe me, I'd love for this to be the case, but I haven't had the time to review all of the pages and categorize them properly. It's on my todo list though.

        I'd had an idea a while ago to provide a form on the front page from which a user could select their board and have the wiki return all of the pages relevant to that board. This is in effect bypassing the selection of the Category as I described above. It requires proper and complete categorization of all of the pages though.

        You're welcome to add Yocto sections to any hardware pages though. I'm sure the Yocto and the hardware vendors would be appreciative.

          I say this because it is sometimes hard to find information on a subject for a specific board...

            You're best bet is to use the search function.
