Main Page Discussion Page --Ted Vollers 16:19, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
Once we have some more content pages completed (I see Ted has already done quite a few), how will we let visitors know about them? I think some sort of "Table of Contents" or other type of launch pad into the content on this main page should be created. This is common on most wikis as well. Many people new to MBT might not know what to search for due to some of the unique terminology. Some recommended starting pages listed on the main page might be useful for them. --Michael Saganski 22:42, 30 May 2011 (CDT)
Displaying the contents for access.
I have done some looking around and compared to WikiPedia. It looks like the Community Portal page is where you normally set this up. This is where those categories(?) that David set up an add on for recently come in and the tree function(?) that he also added. There are ways to do this. We just don't know them yet and I have been doing other things so far. I figured once we had some content, I would start to worry about this. I have also had some problems to deal with on the board.

- For sure Ted, I just wanted to identify the need - there is no rush yet. --Michael Saganski 08:59, 31 May 2011 (CDT)
Regarding the community portal I would think that it should using the category tree that I install we can decide how we want to categorize the content and then attach the appropriate categories to each page. From there we can insert a category tree that will help in navigation. These category trees are hierarchical in nature and can either be hierarchical fragments or can extend all the way up to a parent node. When inserting a category tree it can start anywhere in the tree, so we can get creative with this.
On the community portal page we can perhaps highlight the main pages and then perhaps use the main pages to branch off into finer details with category trees. And example of a category tree is the following
I created a category tree example for you to see on the wiki. This will give you a visual of what I am talking about. I think that everything should eventually filter up to "Home" category, but it it doesn't have to be this way. It could be that we have some trees that are not attached to "Home" (fragments I mentioned above).
I inserted a tree on the Universe Category page with <categorytree mode=pages>Universe</categorytree> (Universe can be replaces with any node in the tree)
You can click on the + sign beside Galaxy and expand out into the sub categories / pages that I created for this example. You will see a combination of subcategories and then pages branching off from the categories that they fall under,
The tag above can be use to start at any branch in the tree for any tree that exists on the site and can be placed on any page. Notice that when you are actually on one of the subcategory pages you can see where you are at the bottom of the page and click the link to navigate back up the tree until eventually you reach the top root / parent node (In this case Universe).
I think by looking at how I am doing this, it may be the best way to learn. --David Mathis 11:42, 2 June 2011 (CDT)
- I like the way this works, although it was a little confusing for a couple minutes. --Michael Saganski 13:33, 2 June 2011 (CDT)
