Hi,
I try to define my own intro content. I have several questions:
1) Is there a convenient editor to create intro content, like for
plugin.xml or for cheat-sheet page? When I create it manually - it looks
ugly.
2) I define my intro page in plugin.xml as the following. When I export
the ploduct - it cannot find the introcontent.xml file. When I change
content to "$nl$/introcontent.xml - it still cannot find it.
<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.intro.config">
<config
content="introcontent.xml"
id="org.xxx.yyy.configid"
introId="org.xxx.yyy.intro">
<presentation
home-page-id="root">
<implementation
kind="html"
os="linux">
</implementation>
</presentation>
</config>
</extension>

3) I try to add image to my intro like below. It cannot find an image.
<!-- Root page -->
<page id="root" style="html/style.css" style-id="page">
<!--title style-id="intro-header">Welcome</title-->
<group id="branding">
<img src="$plugin:plugin_id$/icons/my_image.gif" alt="my_image.gif"/>
</group>
</page>
Thanks, Stella

1. Unfortunately we do not have an editor for intro content. This has
been requested before.

2. I'm not sure why intro is not finding introcontent.xml but the
first place I would look is build.properties to see if it is included
in the list of files that get exported in a binary build. Also plug-ins
with intro content should be exported unjarred.

3. The <img> tag is not the usual way of adding images, usually it is
done in the CSS. If you take a look at the intro contributions in
org.eclipse.platform you can see how images are created in the platform
contributions.
