In a mail message there's context and we can add with dialogue to clarify. To do a piece for a wiki I'll need to be specific, include screen shots and a lot ore detail. I started on that and found it was so much work and had a crash from a power failure and ... and ... and I need to get my taxes done ... and ... I need the 'span" of time and attention.

I suppose by now I work with about 10 tabs open on snippets, templates, pages, page parts, page views, google searches, e-books, style sheets, web tools ... that it would be impossible to describe my approach to the 'nuts and bolts' of 'keyboarding'.

If you were running a major portal or a publishing mini-empire and had dozens of editors and hundreds of authors then you might think differently. -- The way that can be followed is not the Way The truth that can be told is not the Truth _______________________________________________ Radiant mailing list Post: Radiant@radiantcms.org Search: http://radiantcms.org/mailing-list/search/ List Site: http://lists.radiantcms.org/mailman/listinfo/radiant Radiant: http://radiantcms.org Extensions: http://ext.radiantcms.org
