the wiki's comment feature is going to be useless without it being linked into the recent changes. at present, it doesn't take much to check through all nine of our pages, but as the site grows, it's going to be a nightmare trying to keep up with what people have commented. if we're going to have discussions on wiki-page content, would it make sense to use a forum, with the page title as the thread or something?
Isn't the comment page linked to the appropriate 'article' page? For me that makes sense. It does not make sense to link it to recent page revisions. Or am I missing something? neil
what i think will become problematic though is that you won't be able to tell when people have commented, unlike with recent changes, where you can tell when people have edited a page. you'd have to check every page to ensure you'd not missed what was being said.
Not SO!!! i've added notifications to each article which should notify users within the website internal mail
yuo can set notifications for each individual page based on what you want to keep an eye on
is that automatic - you get notified of all comments? or do you have to manually sort of subscribe to each individual comment conversation? it just might turn into a bit of a trawl - as the site grows - if it's not automated. is there any way to automate it?
It's seems to be really complex to understand how the site is developing - or to follow the 'debate'. I would have thought that one of the main objectives of the website is to make critical practice more accessible and make it easier to contribute to and develop ideas and projects. The idea of hunting for and subscribing to articles in order to know when a comment has been made seems to trip up the process, particularly when the amount of pages grows.
sorry if i'm nit-picking and consistently being negative, but there's a lot about xoops i really don't like. a couple of niggling things that i've just been reminded of are
*the users' rating system of having stars and the idea that users are "just popping in". nothing could be so bluntly heirarchical - and entirely unclearly so
*being "you" the user being thanked for visiting "our" site upon log-out
in many ways they seem petty things and easy to look past as unimportant, but they're little things that have an effect on the larger relationship one has with this site.
is there anything we can do to change them?
What's with the page history? it seems impossible to decipher how a page has evolved and certain edits dont even turn up on the changes.
it seems far from accessible
