Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

This a Wiki improvement to do list and links to subpages etc. that I feel will add to the documentation, structure and ease of use of the wiki.

If you have comments please add them to the talk page, sign and summarise them. If you start a new section, pleas add it to the bottom.

  • a general help page with also basic use of templates,
  • a page with samples of all the templates and
  • a page with more advanced editing help.

Templates

To do

  • Documenting templates, later on with a documentation template
Maybe I should create a documentation template and "accessories" before starting to document templates. Need to learn a few things before that though. -- Johan G 07:06, 11 February 2012 (EST)
More to it than I thought. ;-) -- Johan G 13:59, 12 February 2012 (EST)
Gijs created {{informative template}} in favour of a more complex one in February 2012. —Johan G (Talk | contribs) 16:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Create a navigation box for the help pages.
  • Nasal tutorials:
    • Read through, or at least skim through the nasal pages.
    • Create a nasal tutorial page template with input Hooray.
    • Create nasal tutorial info/navbox with input from Hooray.

Work in progress

I have at least gone through most of them. —Johan G (Talk | contribs) 10:50, 12 March 2016 (EST)

Done

Not done

  • Template:tl Template link template. I think this one will be used a lot. Since it will be used in running text I have opted for a short name. Cross icon Already exists. Should have known to search for it before adding it.
  • {{aerotow ready}} template for aerotows. Cross icon Not needed
This is done through {{Infobox Aircraft}} instead. —Johan G (Talk | contribs) 16:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  • {{aerotowable ready}} template for aerotow compatible soaring planes. Cross icon Not needed
This is done through {{Infobox Aircraft}} instead. —Johan G (Talk | contribs) 16:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Archive templates. Not done Not done
Gijs created templates for this in March 2012, though he did not document them... —Johan G (Talk | contribs) 16:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Wich in turn was hugely simplified and documented by Red Leader 31 October 2015Johan G (Talk | contribs) 10:50, 12 March 2016 (EST)
