Wiki updates!

[personal profile] sophie, [personal profile] randomling and I have just been chatting in #dreamwidth-dev (the development IRC channel) about putting together a set of wiki pages on "how to tweak your hack". Wiki-editing isn't a thing I can do right now (because of OpenID and Wiki Account Reasons), which has prompted me to do the actually useful thing of asking y'all what you'd like us to document!

Current plan: take the Development landing page, and add a "Tweaking your dev environment" (or similar title) subsection, to include:
  • how to set up support boards
  • link to the Beta Features set-up page (and make sure we bring that up to date, while we're at it)
  • how to set up PM abilities
  • what are workers, and why do you care? Catalogue of workers.

What're we missing? What else would you find helpful? If you've wanted to do it, however basic you think it is, we should document it - because someone else is also going to want it, and some of us find asking senior devs for help on stuff like this really intimidating! Of course, if the wiki format doesn't work for you, they'll still be available to ask for help, and that is totally cool - but the more learning options we have available, the better :-)

Worker-wise, we have a page for those so we should probably just link to it and make any edits there as appropriate: http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/notes/Workers

Otherwise, yes. :D I like it! I'll take a think about what else might be useful and come back to this post, I think.

There is already useful stuff http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Dreamhack_Getting_Started (worth mentioning for possible interlinking or this could go there if it's mostly links/short stuff).

-- Change your account type (payments priv) and link to http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Privs
-- enabling shop: http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Shop_setup
-- enabling captchas: http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_enable_CAPTCHAs_on_your_Dreamhack
-- other alternative to removing creation codes (for less spam): http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Allow_users_to_register; also mentioned in http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Beginning_dev_checklist; which is redundant but that's another story...

Hmm. Found http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Production_Setup. Might be worth recycling/renaming.

Edit whatever:
http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Dreamhack_invite_codes ?

A solid "I have a shiny new just-working dev-env; now what do I do with it?" page is something we could totally use. =)

Also suggested: "How to set up Search / How Search Works"...which eventually will link to one of these two pages, once someone (maybe even me!) updates & consolidates them. ^_^;

Also, I think we have a "make lots of users" script kicking around somewhere, right? This and any other way of populating your dev-env with test data might be good link candidates.

I know this is old, but did how to set up support boards ever get documented somewhere?

I don't think so, but we have a newly created frontend for making support categories! I'd have to look up the URL, but it might be on /admin.

Found it in /admin! Awesome, thanks.
