Here, I will be my usual helpful self and make a request ... making this post of newfound value! Wink

This page is blank:
http://stet-vip.net/puppian/cmsimple/?Installation:Hard-drive

While the page is being populated could someone include clear instructions for upgrading from version to version for we limited-of-clue folks, please?

Upgrading from Puppy 1.0.4 to 1.0.5 is not intuitive at all.

One inserts the 1.0.5 ISO CD and selects HDD, then chooses pup002 instead of pup001 in order to not wipe out Puppy 1.0.4 until satisfied with 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 or whatever.

The problem is that when I boot it does not see Pup002 with 1.0.5 and I do not see instructions anywhere obvious to fix this problem.

Yes, I do want to help build the instructions and will be sure to post a paint-by-numbers FAQ once I know how to do this and do it myself so I can explain it to another upgrade-challenged user. Wink

Thanks! doc

We also need to coordinate with the documentation included with Puppy. For example, we currently have the HTML pages available under the Help menu selection, and should start an Installation Guide for users to refer to that are using the LiveCD but don't have Internet access yet. So, we have the Puppy Help pages, the Wiki pages, forum topics, and Barry's web pages being used for documentation. Lots more to do, eh?

Instructions for upgrading are surely needed Smile I don't know much about that and it's great to know you're writing a FAQ Cool

Test site has been updated to show how different content from different hosts can be kept a standard look easily, as suggested by many others, with tools like Php-fusion Smile

Downloads (dotpups, pawed casts, puplets, iso, etc) - click on links like "Download (57022 KB)" to get the idea. Files are hosted somewhere else, but the link won't show it.

Gallery (wallpaper, images, etc)

Weblinks (links to puplets, community sites, etc)

Btw, I propose raffy to be our chief website administrator.

PS. As mentioned before, the look of the site can be changed easily, e.g, two columns can be used instead of three; Shoutbox, Member Poll, etc can be set as not shown...

PostPosted: Sat 19 Nov 2005, 20:52    Post subject: Roles  

Thanks for mentioning my name, Puppian.

As to "webmaster" or "web administrator", (am not sure which, really), maybe we can discuss the positions and roles in another thread.

For now, what am doing are:

1. writing initial Foundation pages (with some simple CMS added/tested to also aid members' publishing of images [for the Wiki] as well as own HTML pages -- will make announcement on this Nov 25);

2. has root access (for creating top-level directory, like /docs being home of documentation, and /wikka being home of the Wiki).

I guess my role will no longer expand from here. If we get to decide on one CMS later, I can help set it up then somebody else will be its admin.

Thinking about the work, dividing it if possible, and what its requirements wil be (as to skill, time input, etc) might help us invite the right volunteers.

Thanks!

Seems to be going well
I would get rid of the date and everything from and including the copyright downward can go (just screen clutter) Smile

Oh yes Lobster you're right, they are just screen clutter that comes with the default install options, need some time to figure out how to get rid of them, but can be done I think Smile

Btw, I received pm from raffy with database details needed for the installation of php-fusion. I'm not sure where to install it (as I don't have root access at puppylinux.org), and whether it's for the frontpage of our foundation website thou... some clarification will be great Smile
Thanks!
