I'm sorry that I don't understand exactly how this works. But I
don't seem to have the ability to edit those official tutorials. I noticed
that some of their titles aren't quite right. As below:
Basic tutorial -- ok
Advanced tutorial -- ok
Shapes tutorial -- ok
Bitmap tracing tutorial -- "Inkscape tutorial: Tracing" should be "Inkscape
tutorial: Tracing Bitmaps"
Calligraphy tutorial -- ok
Elements of Design tutorial -- "Inkscape tutorial: Elements" should be
"Inkscape tutorial: Elements of Design"
Tips and Tricks tutorial -- "Inkscape tutorial: " should be "Inkscape
tutorial: Tips and Tricks"
Interpolate tutorial -- ok
Also, it looks like the links on the Tutorials page aren't made with
the plug-in. I'll be glad to get those ready today, if you like.
Hi Maren and Martin,
Unless you find any errors (and please feel free to check), the new
Learn, Community, and FAQ pages are up on live, linked with the plug-in, and
ready to translate. Also, on the faq, the span is removed from the h4s.
Martin said to leave alone the span where they were in a list item
(unless I misunderstood). So there are still some span ids in the list
items. The only outstanding issue is that there is no link to the manual
for the new Measurement tool (item B.8.), because it hasn't been written yet
(at least not as of last night).
Another minor issue is on Community page under IRC, this link:
irc://irc.freenode.org/#inkscape. I'm not very familiar with that kind of
link, so I didn't have any clues how to fix it, when the plug-in reported
there is an error with it ("not valid", I think it said). So I just left
that as is. I don't know if the problem is the plug-in or the link. But it
seems to work as is, so that's why I left it with <a href>.
Beyond those issues, you may particularly want to have a look at the
Contribute section (D.) since it changed drastically, after putting its
content on Contribute page, and the new Promote page.
If I could use rich text, I'd put in a happy dance smiley or 2!
PS - Martin recently mentioned about announcing changes to the website in
the mailing list, but I'm not clear exactly what kind of changes. Do you
want me to post a message for this? It seems like there have been a lot of
fairly significant changes lately, so maybe there should be a summary, or
something..... But again, I wasn't completely clear what he meant -- maybe
meant code changes? TA :-)
Ok, now that 0.91 is ready, I'll be transferring the content from my new
Community, Learn, and FAQ pages to the live site, and start fixing the
links. I won't publish until I have all the links fixed. But, before I get
too far into the faq, I just want to make sure you don't want me to fix the
In trunk I've just committed a new website plugin, djangocms-toc.
It's quite new and will need fixing as it's tested but this is what it
does so far:
1. If placed into a text plugin, it will generate a table of contents
for that plugin.
2. If placed outside, it'll pick the first plugin/placeholder.
3. The toc is generated using the html header tags in order
4. If the header tag itself has an id, then a local link <a
href="#id"> is created.
5. Otherwise no link is created.
a. You can pick a title (h2) for the table of contents.
b. You can choose if you want bullets or numbers
c. The whole toc is within a <div id='toc'> tag for easier styling later on.

Hi Maren and Martin,
I'm not sure if I've found a bug, or if this is just another
annoying thing about using the link plugin.
Since Maren said I should not copy over the source from the staging
page (so I don't have to make new links), I tried to use the non-source part
of the editor. In a few places there are 2 links to the same page. But if
I use the same the text link, and simply change the text by typing, then
after the page is saved and published, even though the text appears to be
correct in the editor, it reverts to the original text when saved/published.
Steps to reproduce:
1 -- Open any page (with links made by plugin) to edit, such as Contribute.
2 -- Copy a text link, such as "Open Source" in the first sentence.
3 -- Paste it somewhere else on the page, like the end of that same
4 -- Change the text "Open Source" to "click here".
5 -- Looks fine in the editor, but after saving and publishing, it changes
back to "Open Source".
I'm not sure if it happens during the save or the publish. I didn't
notice until after the publish, but it probably happened during the save.
The solution I found was to make a brand new link. To my
understanding, it sounds like that makes a new....maybe it's like a new row
or item in a database, or something like that. But anyway it sounds like it
must be duplicating something.
Also, different topic. What do I need to do to get the format
changes going, with the indents, and different heading styles? Bug report?
These pages have basically the same content as before, but just
rearranged, so that the page structure mirrors the sub-menu structure (or
vice versa). Of course, since I started them on staging, AND started before
we discussed always using the django plugin for making links, I'll have to
fix all the links once I transfer the content (from staging to live).
(partly off topic, but using the link plugins will put a kink in the process
of using the staging site to make drafts of pages, like I have, for the
several pages I've worked on)
Anyway, if you'd like to review that I got everything right, and
didn't forget anything.....
Here is new Contribute:
Here is new Develop: http://staging.inkscape.org/en/brynnsdev/?edit_off.
Here's my plan:
-- transfer the content, from staging to live pages
-- fix all the links
-- move Bug Management sub-menu item to the bottom
If we ever get guides for writing documentation and/or extensions,
those would go below Bug Mgmt, at least for the time being. I do realize
that larger changes may be on the way, if Matthew's structure is adopted.
But at least for now, this will be a little improvement.
(Also partly off topic -- if Matthew's structure is adopted, which
removes 1 whole main menu item and sub-menu, maybe the Gallery could go into
the main menu? Maybe it's just me, but I think the Gallery needs top
billing :-) )
Ok then. Please let me know if any changes are needed to these
pages, and when I can go ahead with the transfer.
The other day, I think it was Martin who said to get rid of info or
references to Jabber, or something like that. I just came across a couple
of instances, but now I don't remember what the instructions were. And I
can't seem to find the message about it.
One is on the new Community page, which I'll fix over on staging.
In both places, it's just the words "and Jabber", that I guess should be
deleted? The other is the current Chat Now page, under Inkscape Development
Online Discussion > IRC > end of 2nd sentence.
Also, I think I mentioned this a while ago. Under the chat applet
is International and Local Communities section, which links to the wiki
page. I have transferred all that info from the wiki page (and updated) to
the Learn page. Once 0.91 is released, it will be on the Communities page.
Any objections to me deleting the International and Local
Communities section? And regarding Jabber, I guess I'll delete "and
Jabber", in the next section below?
Hi Docs List,
The website team is going to be joining this mailing list to keep track
of website work. It's mostly talking about content issues as the
technical stuff goes to bug reports.
The idea of joining everything here means we can make the docs really
consistent between the generated docs, the website and/or other
Please welcome Maren Hachman (web-development/qa), Brynn
(content/editing), Mathew Wong (content design) and Hinerangi Courtenay
I'm Martin Owens, web developer and central node. :-)
Please post a reply if you're interested in joining the website work
and/or getting the docs for 0.91 on the website.
Best Regards, Martin Owens
Mathew made contact with the others not long after myself – he is also a designer, so we'll be working together to redesign the website. Mathew has made a start on wireframes and a revised site map (linked to by Maren), and I have started on the general design direction (https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/5498/).
If it interests you I started a Trello board for the redesign, so we all know where we're at – and any of us can add/assign/label tasks to the backlog or vote for them (the backlog is just a brain dump where we can create tickets for anything that comes to mind, but only things agreed upon should be moved to the todo column). If preferred we can make the group public so it can be visible to all, but editable only by those invited. Let me know if you would like to be added.
P.S. I have also just joined the docs list.
