|The Joomla! Docs Wiki Barnstar|
|Here's a barnstar award as thanks for all the hard work you have been doing on the Joomla! 2.5 Help Screens and everywhere else on the Docs Wiki! --- Tom Hutchison (talk) 20:10, 8 February 2013 (CST)|
If you want you can download J3.1 beta and see how the Help30 Help screens are being used to power and display the Help Screens in 3.1.
I set up an alias from Help31 to Help30 so all requests of Help31 rewrite to Help30. This is actually backwards of how it will be, just a demo of how it will work in practice. From what I can tell right now, there will be some minor tweaks to pages to include tagging and 6 new Help screen pages. Once 3.1 is actually released, Help30 will become known as Help31 and all installations of 3.0 will show 3.1 help screens. If 3.1 has additional Help Screens because of new features, they will not be available in a 3.0 install. The actual component interface page in admin view will not exist, so there will be no link to it. Take care -- Tom Hutchison (talk) 00:00, 7 March 2013 (CST)
API stuff - instead of making yourself crazy deleting everything how about you move the pages we are keeping, then I'll mass delete those left.
Part of our issue is there are so many API type pages, API15, API16 namespace with even more subpages, then they started using the Main namespace with subpages by version, which led to more subpages. With the Platform on a 4 a year release and CMS on a 6 month, it was unsustainable unless it was automated. Now we are going back to Framework.
What I thought, and this would be the start of a move towards SMW. Namespace, Class: I would need to create it first before adding to it. I just sent an email to docs which explains SMW. I think I counted 276 total Class type without the methods. Adding in methods makes almost 2000, but we could put the methods all on a Class page with an example.
The API stuff is a real mess. My best guess is there are probably 6000 pages of all these types of pages.
