Permissions, suggestions, etc

Greetings,

Deciding to act upon the remark about needing more documentation as discussed in this thread: View topic: Hello, I hope this 'topic' does what I intend it to do ... - ocPortal, I decided that the best place to start would be in the CEDI.

So, I searched there to see what documentation is available, and what is missing. It was then (and based on taht topic) that I decided I'd make a guide discussing basic CEDI functions and uses, with screenshots of course. So I mind mapped, made screen shots, and came into the CEDI page Content features and usage, ready to "put some ink on the paper", if you will.

Here's the problem. I am an absolute order and structure freak. I admit that. While I noticed that others have made their contributions via posts. While that is ok I always see posts as a place to comment upon the current page, and would love to make guides themselves as pages. I know I know, I'm too darn picky.

Anyways, so I see that there is an edit tree button there, and did notice the comment made by Chris on the CEDI intro page where it was a freely editable and such wiki-like CEDI. Being happy with that, I click on the edit tree button, ready to make the sub-page "CEDI Basics". I get the "must be logged in" screen, give my creditals, and then get laughed at about not having the permission to do that.

So that sucks…. Maybe I'm being overly picky, but I am thinking that having a page filled with posted comments isn't so good of an idea, having to wade through those posts for the guide you want = no fun at all IMO. So how should I then go about doing this? Should I PT my guide to the appropriate staff? Should I create a forum thread for it? Should I suck it up and just post it as a comment in the CEDI page?

It was our intention to make it completely editable, but we forgot page permissions on cms:cms_cedi -- fixed!

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
