Re: [ecf-dev] Fw: [equinox-dev] Equinox category tag on the wiki

Branding definitely helps, but then the category page just looks utterly ridiculosu since everything starts with an 'E' [1]. This kind of defeats the whole purpose of a category providing a good alphabetized listing with that big bold alphabet helping you navigate.

Perhaps something like 'Remote Services for ECF' would be better than 'ECF Remote Services'? I guess that only solves the alphabetizing problem because then it'll look just as ridiculous since practically every page would be 'X for <project name>'.

Note that this behaviour is also happening in Equinox and may turn out to be damaging to the wiki as a whole.  I briefly looked at the wiki namespace mechanism but did not come to a conclusion as to whether it presented a solution.  But yes, even with the categories, using a page name like API Refactoring does seem problematic.  We have tended to go for Equinox <some generic thing here>.

[ecf-dev] Fw: [equinox-dev] Equinox category tag on the wiki

This type of behavior should be done for ECF as we currently hijack a few generic wiki names like "API Refactoring"

Subject: [equinox-dev] Equinox category tag on the wiki

The set of wiki pages related to Equinox has been growing (good thing) and is now somewhat hard to manage (bad thing). Personally I find I am continually searching for pages I know to be there. In an attempt to address this I started adding Equinox category tags to various pages associated with Equinox. This is as simple as adding


[[Category:Equinox|<sort key>]]

The tagged pages then show up in the index

Please tag any relevant untagged pages that you find and any new pages that you create
