Organization of the FAQ and Glossary Sections
The FAQ Section
As the FAQ section is to appear in the linear documentation, the DULG web relies
on the TocPlugin
plugin to index the questions rather than a separate
index topic. It is therefore neccessary to create a new topic containing the
new Q&A set first and linking it into the main documentation through the WebOrder
The steps neccessary to add a new Q&A set are therefore:
- Create a new topic with the Q&A content. This can be done for example by
simply entering the new topic name in the Go header input field and
clicking on the Create link in the "Topic not found" page.
Remember that the TocPlugin is used to index the pages so rather
than using the TWiki header notation (---+) the %SECTION% tags have
to be used (see also DULGUsageOfTocPlugin).
- Edit the WebOrder topic and include the new topic in the vicinity of
the already present FAQ entries. Note that the FAQs are classified
right now by their relevance into these sub-topics:
Choose a representative name for the topic so it will be easy to find it
through the TWiki search facilities, the topic name EthernetProblemsOnTQM8xxL
is a good example.
The Glossary Section
It is very much likely, that the DULG web will contain more "lateral" links
than what should go into the printed linear documentation, so
adding a new Glossary
item is a manual process
. If you want a new
definition to appear in it, make sure that the definition resides in its own
topic and that it is formatted like the other entries (you'll see differences
soon enough when the topic is linked from the Glossary
and when you view the
result). Adding an appropriate %INCLUDE% tag at the correct position
in the Glossary
topic takes care of inclusion in the linear documentation.
- Create a new topic (or reformat the existing to-be-in-glossary topic)
according to the other entries there.
- Add an appropriate %INCLUDE% directive at the correct place
in the Glossary.
