Operation: site organization

Archived articles implemented, plugin-gathering mission is a go.

Monday 3 December 2007 at 04:01 AM

Lots done this weekend, lots more to do..
Main items on the Pending list involve repairing or removing broken links and collecting orphaned plugins. You (anyone reading this) can help by pointing out articles that need repair — but if you could include a correct link or the plugin code/file to repair with, that would be a great help.

Will also be “archiving” those articles/plugins that have become outdated due to new built-in txp tags or for other reasons. There’s a bit more about that in the help. It’s nothing dramatic; just a practical feature to point out updated alternatives for some of the older and possibly antiquated (but still appreciated) mods/tips/plugins/etc. Please point out instances that should be archived (and please include a link to the successor/replacement).

If you’re interested in helping more directly on the admin side, please drop a note to the admin (admin at textpattern.org or contact form).

how exactly do we report outdated plugins?

for example low_url_titles is probably not needed anymore since TXP already generates URL-titles by itself.

maybe some form of “Report this” type functionality for each individual plugin/mod/addon page?

A “report this” feature would be ideal to allow individuals to report broken links and outdated information, as well as to include the replacement links/relevant comments.. Is someone currently working on a plugin to that effect?

Until a more evolved system is available, posting a comment to an article is probably the most straightforward way to flag it.

It helps to include a link in the comment to the relevant wiki page on TextBook (textpattern.net) or to the updated/replacement plugin on Textpattern Resources (textpattern.org), etc.

Thanks for mentioning low_url_titles. :)

Flagging feature has been implemented since. The feature is very widely and regularly used, and has been working out well; thank you all.
