  * [[Introduction]] - READY-TO-GO draft of replacement homepage. Russell and Jason apparently quite fond of sidebar currently on homepage, DanRasmussen weary of fiddling with formatting issues related to sidebar (see [[Dashboard]]). So here it sits! Renamed from `PersonalTelcoConstructed` -- "[[Introduction]]" will be easier to append to the URL on PTP's business cards and elsewhere.
  * [[PersonalTelcoUnderConstruction]] - draft of next-gen homepage. Not ready, but contains ideas for improvements over [[Introduction]].
  * [[Dashboard]] - PTP entry page for volunteers. Goal: show every homepage visitor what they need, and no more! See [[DashboardIntro]] for details. Tried to include this page as a sidebar on [[Introduction]] page but failed (wasted too much time trying to get it right, and gave up).
  * [[Introduction]] - READY-TO-GO draft of replacement homepage. Russell and Jason apparently quite fond of sidebar currently on homepage, DanRasmussen weary of fiddling with formatting issues related to sidebar (moreover, now convinced homepage sidebar is a bad idea - see [[Dashboard]] section below). So here it sits! Renamed from `PersonalTelcoConstructed` -- "/wiki/[[Introduction]]" will be easier to append to the URL on PTP's business cards and elsewhere.
  * [[IntroductionNextGen]] - DRAFT of next-gen homepage. Contains ideas for improvements to [[Introduction]].
  * [[Dashboard]] - PTP entry page for volunteers. Goal: show every homepage visitor what they need, and no more! See [[UsingDashboard]] for details. Tried to include this page as a sidebar on [[Introduction]] page but failed (wasted too much time trying to get it right, and gave up). No longer think Dashboard on [[Introduction|homepage]] is a good idea:
   * 4 - Number of print pages required to print [[PersonalTelco]]. Note how awkward this looks in printed form, and how much of the information is quickly dated, or does not make sense in non-hyperlink form.
   * 2.1 - Number of print pages required to print [[Introduction]]. Leave out the footer if you're going to print this - causes to run into a whole extra page!
   * 1.5 - Number of print pages required to print [[Dashboard]]. No real reason to print this page, just measuring how much space it takes up.

Projects

(in no particular order)

  • Make homepage awesome. On both mobile and immobile.
    • Introduction - READY-TO-GO draft of replacement homepage. Russell and Jason apparently quite fond of sidebar currently on homepage, DanRasmussen weary of fiddling with formatting issues related to sidebar (moreover, now convinced homepage sidebar is a bad idea - see Dashboard section below). So here it sits! Renamed from PersonalTelcoConstructed -- "/wiki/Introduction" will be easier to append to the URL on PTP's business cards and elsewhere.

    • IntroductionNextGen - DRAFT of next-gen homepage. Contains ideas for improvements to Introduction.

    • Dashboard - PTP entry page for volunteers. Goal: show every homepage visitor what they need, and no more! See UsingDashboard for details. Tried to include this page as a sidebar on Introduction page but failed (wasted too much time trying to get it right, and gave up). No longer think Dashboard on homepage is a good idea:

      • 4 - Number of print pages required to print PersonalTelco. Note how awkward this looks in printed form, and how much of the information is quickly dated, or does not make sense in non-hyperlink form.

      • 2.1 - Number of print pages required to print Introduction. Leave out the footer if you're going to print this - causes to run into a whole extra page!

      • 1.5 - Number of print pages required to print Dashboard. No real reason to print this page, just measuring how much space it takes up.

  • Add sponsor links to nodes (ongoing, but started 22. Feb 2012 and essentially finished 28. Feb 2012) - working through NodesByAge

  • Add maps to node pages lacking them (pending determining how that works)
  • Delete, or add to DeleteMe, appropriate pages from AbandonedPages and OrphanedPages - WARNING: both of these links could take a long time to load!

  • Create pages the wiki says ought to exist, where beneficial. See WantedPages (and be aware that it could take forever to load)

  • Create something similar to BackPackAp.

  • Using Android, find offline way to GPS navigate to nearest PTP node. Maybe using custom POIs for OsmAnd?

Pages I've Created

Macro Test Bed

Macro: RecentChangesList / RecentChanges()

RecentChanges takes up a lot of space! Possible to limit output? Here's RecentChangesList:

Macro: RandomPage(integer) , RandomPage, PageCount

Several random pages, (out of 33338 total) :

Random page, twice: WeeklyMeeting20040210 / PersonalTelco/2015-03-04

Macro: FullSearch() / FullSearchCached()

Pages where DanRasmussen appears in text. Is there some way to show most recent pages edited by DanRasmussen, vs. being in the page text? FullSearchCached is probably for searches that don't change much. I don't know how often the cache is refreshed, but would like to figure that out.

Macro: TitleIndex

an index of all page titles. Disabled on PTP wiki (why?), but embeddable in any page.

Macro: WordIndex, WantedPages, OrphanedPages

  • WordIndex: index of all words in page titles. Disabled on PTP wiki (why?), but embeddable in any page. WantedPages: list links to non-existent pages OrphanedPages: list pages no other page links to

Macro: AbandonedPages

See AbandonedPages Quite a long list! Many PTP wiki pages haven't been edited forever - e.g. historical meeting notes. Wonder what the cut-off date is for this function...

Macro: SystemInfo

See SystemInformation
