"How to create a new project" wiki page
« on: August 18, 2011, 04:55:49 am »
I noticed that the "How do I create a new project" in the wiki has said "coming soon" for quite some time, so I spent some time and wrote a page for it.  Before I add a link to it, could someone please read over it and tell me what you think?

Thanks.

Very nice contribution. I believe the word "coming soon" exists for more than two years.

When reading Creating a new project - CodeBlocks, I just think that the images should be arranged, e.g. all the images should be follow the text or above the text. Letting the image and text mixed together is not quite good. :D
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Thanks, I will see what I can do to organize the formatting.

I have moved the images to follow the text and added a link on the main page.

By the way, does anyone know why the wiki posts the following error for thumbnail images of all the pictures I uploaded?
Code: [Select]
Error creating thumbnail: /srv/wiki.codeblocks.org/bin/ulimit4.sh: line 4: /usr/bin/convert: No such file or directory

It's a missing binary to batch-convert images from commandline in linux.
It has to be installed by someone who has root-access to the server.
As far as I know, the only one who can install the package (graphicksmagic) is Yannis.
