QL Wiki - Editing Manual

Postby NormanDunbar » Sun Mar 18, 2018 5:26 pm

I've seen some comments recently about editing the QL Wiki. To this end, I've uploaded a particularly good PDF guide to editing the Wiki pages for registered users.

You can get it at http://qdosmsq.dunbar-it.co.uk/download ... dating.pdf.

Have fun, and I look forward to lots more changes to the WIki pages now. You have no excuses anymore! :D :D :D

EDIT: Removed the 's' in 'https' to get around the certificate problem mentioned below.
EDIT: Added this link ... http://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php#editing_manual will take you to the main wiki page where theres also a link to the pdf. (At the bottom of the page!)

Cheers,
Norm.

Thanks Norman.
Using this link however gave an error and refused to load it.
Using the link from your QL-Users message got me on the Wiki and clicking the pdf from there reported an "Untrusted Connection". Ignoring that I got the pdf anyway.
It may have been my SeaMonkey browser being difficult.

Afternoon Gents.

Ok, I'm puzzled because I've just done "open link in new tab" and it downloaded the pdf file quite happily from the url in the first post of mine above.

The certificate thing is bugger though, I'll have to raise a call with my host.

Cheers,
Norm.

Stupid question: why have you decided to make PDF instead of wiki page?

No, not stupid at all.

Whenever you edit a page, or create a new one, the editor opens and at the top is a bit of text, and a couple of links. There is a link to the syntax page - how to format text etc, and one to the playground, where you can try stuff out without messing up the main wiki. So, the basic information is already on the wiki.

But the pdf can be printed off and read in the bath! ;)

Playground: http://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?id ... playground


Cheers,
Norm.
