Talk:Property Tree Intro

Navigation bar

Can I make a suggestion.

Split up the pages and have a navigation bar at the top ie

Property Tree >> Intro - Tree - Servers

  • Where intro would remain largely as is.
  • the Property Tree would have the server part moves to a different page
  • The servers page is seperate

What excactly would be the benefit of doing so? We do have indexes at the top of each article, which lists all (sub)headings within the article. I would vote for writing more content before thinking about seperate pages. Having three pages with tiny pieces of text doesn't make the wiki easier to read/understand... I hope you can explain your motivation a little further. Maybey we can agree on something ;)

EDIT: I think I do understand you now. I've added a little template to the right side of the pages, pleset take a look and let me know if that is what you meant. However, I still think that the intro should be placed on the Property Tree page, as that's the first page everyone will see...

Agreed, but it is just somewhat unfortunate that the current Property Tree article is mostly just a collection of various properties instead of really an introduction to the property tree (and the underlying concepts) itself. This was already a problem back when I put together the current intro, so please do feel free to re-arrange the corresponding contents, preferably there would be at least three different types of articles: 1) property tree introduction, 2) property usage scenarios/examples 3) most important properties (for programmers/contributors, as some sort of 'reference'). Also, it's probably worth mentioning that the current Intro article is certainly far from complete or comprehensive in the first place. --MILSTD 08:06, 8 September 2009 (EDT)
