Need to update instructions on creating an account

Link no longer says "Log in / create account", and clicking on log in doesn't offer any method to create an account. I at last found how to create a KDE identity with the other link. If creating an account strictly for is still available, the instructions need to point people in that direction. If creating a KDE identity or some other more global account is the only way, this should be indicated instead.

OK. It needed a newer screenshot of the login area, too. I think it is now adequately fixed, but remember that this is a wiki. If you can see any way to make something clearer, please jump in with an edit. :-) It's particularly valuable if you are reading/writing about an application, as only someone who uses that application will know exactly what explanations are needed. If you see something that isn't clear and you don't know what should be there, use the discussion page to ask for info, which can then form the update.

Thanks for drawing our attention to this.

I think instructions should be updated again to explain how to register to phabricator, which I guess is the only way to register now.

Also there should be a quick start page for techbase. The link on the right hand side of techbase point to userbase guides, which explicity say they are not related to techbase.

Apologies, the new info is indeed missing. Still on todo.

cannot translate this page

Since this page has been locked I don't have access to translate it. Is this on purpose, or an unknown issue?

After some discussion it was decided that Help pages for contributors were to be read by people who have sufficient English to be confident that they can write to an English root page or translate from English. It seemed logical, therefore, that there was no need to translate such pages. Some of them had been already marked for translation. The next step should be to take them out of the translation system. Thanks for reminding me.

I've reviewed this, and still think that it is the right decision for all the rest of the help pages, but the Quick Start page is not only for contributors. I've partially released the lock, which will allow translations and contribution by established users (locking out newly registered users only, to avoid vandalism and spamming). You may still see a warning, but you will be able to work with it. Please let me know if there are any problems with this arrangement, as it's the first page we've used it on.

category link syntax

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Users, Administrators, trusted, KDEDevelopers.

You can view and copy the source of this page.


Return to Thread:Talk:Quick Start/category link syntax.

When you add two categories, eg [[Category:Getting Started]] [[Category:Contributing]]

Mediawiki displays them as [[Category:Getting Started|Contributing]] but it does know that they are separate categories. If you hover over each one you will see that it links to the correct category page.

I misunderstood..... I thought it was talking about meidia wiki code , but in fact it was talking about display result.
