I can't figure out how to make a Wiki like CEDI entry.

Hi Guys,
I cannot get my head around the CEDI stuff.
I want to create a nested series of entries, viz:
Security
…Site Security
……Gate keys
……Out of office call outs
…Office Security
……Opening up
……Closing up
…Etc,
Membership
…New Members
…Renewals
…Mailings
…Etc.
Medical
…Diagnosis
……Initial
……Follow Up
………Local Support
………Regional Support
………Etc,
Is it possible to give some worked examples of how to go about this please.
Many thanks

Hello Max!

You can have look at a work in progress for my virtual classroom WIKI (CEDI).
More child pages will be added as needed over time. These pages are added by my students.

You should also visit the Legends of Nor'Ova site of our friend Mythus for one of the best examples of a WIKI tree in the context of a great story telling.

The following pictorial (step by step) CEDI tree construction should help you achieve your own.

Neat, Jean.

Pictures do substitute well for a verbose explanation!

 :thumbs:

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Wow, Jean! This is awesome.  I have just gone through it step by step and can now see how it is all structured.
Very many thanks for taking the time to do all this for me - I have never had such a comprehensive reply to a question.
I am in awe!

Excellent Post Jean!

BTW I followed the link to Mythus site to see example as you suggested however I noticed something which I do not understand.

On the list of Child Pages from main page it says

Character Creation (4 children)

But when I follow that link it has

    * Completing a Character Profile
    * Completing an Equipment Record
    * Completing a Skills Record
    * Quick Profile Templates (1 child)
    * Character Profiles
    * Character Equipment Records
    * Character Skills Records

This is a lot more than 4. Is there an explanation for that or is that a bug?

Actually after reading your Tut Jean I guess the explanation is that he must not have entered his "Edit Tree" options correctly on the main page would that be a correct assumption? There is no auto detect of children pages?

Thanks Duck!

Actually, only the first 4 are available to a guest. The others are available to members only. Maybe this is the reason for the (4 children). This needs to be confirmed, but I guess that a member would probably see (7 children).

Those are the little inconsistencies that annoy me.

It seems that Chris is fixing many of these as they are identified or at least offering an explanation of why they work as they do.

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.

I since had a chance to login as a member of NorOva and verified that in fact there are 4 CEDI children on the Character Creation page, the other 3 items on the list are "catalogues". I think that Mythus used a clever menu trick to merge catalogues and CEDI.:cool:
