Thank you Stefano (and Shari and Katherine)! I think this will help. Is there a way to add new categories? I expect that as people start using this, more categories will be requested.
And, is there a wiki page where this info is hosted? --Rocky -----Original Message----- From: Stefano Maffulli [mailto:stef...@openstack.org] Sent: Friday, November 14, 2014 3:01 AM To: OpenStackemail@example.com Subject: [openstack-dev] [all] A more dynamic wiki, introducing Categories Hello folks in the past months Shari and I have implemented more chunks of the taxonomy developed for us by Katherine Cranford (a volunteer expert). Using categories in the wiki pages can help us create dynamic pages and keep information more visible, well organized and discoverable. For example, we had a page listing all Teams. When someone needed to create a new Team, someone would have to: 1) create a new page for the team, save, 2) go to the Teams page, edit page adding a link to the new page, save. Today instead the process looks like this: - Create a new page for the new team - Add the text [[Category: Teams]] to the rest of the text - save Done. The new page will be automatically shown on https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Category:Teams Category pages are just like any other wiki page: they can have text, images, can be edited, translated etc. And they automatically show the pages contained in their category. As an example, see how the dynamic page for Programs https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Category:Programs and the 'static' version look like: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Programs I would apply to Programs the same redirect I created for Teams (unless someone stops me). Pages generated automatically this way are a huge improvement to navigation inside the wiki and I suggest you all to get familiar with the list of Categories shown in a nice tree on: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Category:Home and read the Taxonomy section in: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/How_To_Use_The_Wiki As this is a wiki, your help is needed: think about adding pages you manage to an existing category and when possible consider moving 'static' pages to the newly created dynamic pages.
