Title: Wiki site redesigned/re-organized
Post by: mandrav on April 05, 2006, 01:45:55 pm
If you haven't noticed yet, our wiki has been redesigned. The main page is now using a more clear layout (dare I say "professional-looking"?) and the articles and tutorials pages have been re-organized.

All of you wiki-editors, please try choosing the correct context when creating a new wiki page. Articles should go in "Articles" and tutorials in "Tutorials". That's not complicated, is it? :P

Nice looking!

Ok, I'll "byte". What's the difference criteria for an
article vs. a tutorial?

thanks

Well, trust your insticts :)
A tutorial is considered to be a detailed step-by-step guide to something. On the other hand, an article is more abstract.

lol, I always have to open both pages (Articles and Tutorials) because I don't know the difference. :P
What other sinonyms are for those words?

Tutorial = step by step guides or HowTo's on a specific problem (e.g. wxSmith applications)
Articles = Overviews, reports, design details, interestings side-notes (e.g. compilers supported, but NOT the setup)
(from my point of view.)
With regards, Morten.
