- Discussion about the J. River Media Center Wiki goes here
- Requests for deleting pages should go to User_talk:Gateley
- Orphan Pages: Special:Lonelypages - there should only be 1 of these. Most are FAQs (see Category_talk:Frequently_Asked_Questions).
- Redo the handheld manual for version 12 (it's been completely changed).
- How to sync, including to a hard disk device
- We need someone to do the MC on linux and MC on apple sections
- Add FireDaemon stuff to sharing plugins page
- Some useful forum posts to add to Wiki:
- Especially moving (custom) fields
- Put it TiVo_Format
- Registry saving, belongs in tips and tricks, maybe faq
- Registry editing to solve problems (very dangerous):
- Remote Control tip
- NickM's Int. Chars and NAS
- PaulSinnema's C# plugin template
Structure of the Wiki
Talking with Matt and Jim, they thought the wiki wasn't well enough structured. The last useful forum post above (msg266190) is a collection of tips and tricks. Where does it fit?
Matt thought manuals were useless except as sources of shortcut keystroke definitions.
Any ideas? Gateley 11:10, 26 February 2007 (CST)
Jaguu suggested http://www.snom.com/wiki/index.php/Snom300 as a good model, it looks very nice, and one thing I like a lot is the little images in each category.
marko 13:30, 29 March 2007 (CDT): How about a "start here" page that would ask "what would you like to learn about?" type questions? The snom.com approach is very easy to digest. very nice indeed.
from here the wiki could take the user along paths dedicated to things such as tivo, HTPC, library management, remote control, etc. etc. I feel that no matter what, every user should first be encouraged to learn and understand the library foundations; viewschemes, smartlists, playlists, search filters etc. etc. and how each element can be combined so as to arrive at a desired subset of files, displayed in a desired fashion, and subsequently, how these subsets can be deployed in the various arenas that MEDIA CENTER plays in.
In case a user gets ahead of themselves, when entering a topic, you could show them links to information or techniques that they need to understand before anything that follows makes any sense to them?
Is it not possible to get external links to open in a new browser tab/window?
Nice thoughts Marko - no idea on the new tab/window, I searched the documentation and couldn't find anything. Gateley 15:36, 29 March 2007 (CDT)
