Cool Site

I think your site really rocks. How can I help? --exampleuser 11:25, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

What are your interests? --danimo 11:30, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
I read mailing lists a lot so I could help out with FAQ collection. --exampleuser 11:35, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

And now for the actual questions:

Content from

Will still be alive? Should the content of migrated to UserBase and TechBase? Now we have a lot of webpages and wikis. Some of them are outdated.

As I understand it, will eventually disappear, once all the useful content is migrated to either UserBase or TechBase. I think I've already migrated most of the UserBase level pages - so now I should go through w.k.o. and mark them as also in UserBase. It would be a good idea if devs could check their more tech pages and migrate those to TechBase. We're aiming for a clear division between user-centric and developer-centric, accepting that some advanced users will be on the brink of both. --annew 16:35, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
I will take care of some pages at w.k.o I created myself, move content and set links to userbase. --Mark Ziegler 12:49, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Icons on the main page

When you click on an icon on the main page (and presumably others too), you go to the mediawiki page about the icon, and not, as most people probably expect, to the title link. Well, at least, i expected that.

What you actually see when you do that is the information that is stored on the UserBase image gallery. I suspect that that is a built-in, and we can't change it, but I will find out. The clickable link is the bold title beside the icon. If you have any ideas for making that clearer, please tell us.--annew 17:45, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Apparently it is possible to link the icons, though it needs a plugin. Since we'll have to add a link to every icon on the site that may take a few days, but we'll get it fixed. Thanks for reporting the problem. --annew 19:08, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Why not having an html table like mainpage at amaroks wiki? Source: . That was done quick and works fine. --Mark Ziegler 11:03, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I added a solution now, using the ImageMap extension and converted the welcome page. Syntax looks a bit clumsy, but maybe we can make this into a template. Will play around with it later. --danimo 23:27, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


Are there any plans to have pages in other language than english? In Techbase it is really nice to have it. Specially users are frequently using only there native language. Cheers. --Mark Ziegler 12:52, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

The multilanguage template is in place, see (and use) this template. --danimo 16:17, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Is it possible to just provide a wiki platform, and let users to fill it in our own native language instead of translating the original page? I mean, for example, make a page or a site called -- Franklin

KDE versions.

How can we easily indicate at each page, for which KDE version this information is valid ? Maybe some templates, at least with 3.x, 4.x, distribution-specific. Or each app can have box on their page with info about "what you have to do to have this app on your system". So for example for konqueror there will write that it is available in every kde install. For plasmoids there will be info that you need kde4 and packages this and that. Etc. --Ajuc 15:02, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I vote for it. Having a small indicator for kde3 or kde4 would be nice. --Mark Ziegler 11:00, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I would like to see that, as well as indicators for skill levels where appropriate. To get started we really need some dedicated icons, though. I don't think they need to be as detailed as oxygen icons, so maybe this is something we could do ourselves? Open to suggestions on that.
I just created two templates for those:



Please put comments in the Discussion tab of Template:KDE3 and Template:KDE4 if there's something you need done with it. --Jucato

Also, suggestions on form of icon - a circle with KDEx? circle with Skillx? They may be difficult to read at small sizes. Please give us some ideas. --annew 11:55, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

KDE4 feature from KDE 3

There is a very useful feature in KDE 3 that I am waiting for in KDE 4. The ability to click anywhere on the desktop and have it pull up my application menu. I do not know what this feature is officially called, but This is really the last big piece of functionality that I am waiting on before taking the plunge to KDE 4 on all of my machines.

Please, keep up the good work.


Please record wishes on - developers may not see these pages. --annew 11:55, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
