    @ BlinkinCat;
    As You may recall ..I have an extensive database of "resource material sites". In my continued support of NewDocs and in active participation; Is there a means presently within the NewDocs wiki to massage the data base by url, compare my data base's urls to facilitate adding my resource material to the wiki ? Mind you, I am wiki illiterate -!

    directions are nice to have

    Hi Bashing-om,

    There are already quite a number of links supplied by you that have been listed on the Links page. I don't think that there is any practical means to do as you suggested to compare urls although I may be wrong.

    I feel that any new links will be found either individually or in small numbers based on interest and worthiness of the subject. In most cases information should also be as up to date as possible. At present there are 71 Links listed.

    Using your own judgement as to whether any proposed link falls into these criteria, you have the option of adding the link to the wiki yourself, adding a comment in the discussion thread that you have done so, or alternatively you may send any links to me via PM and I can look them over and add them to the wiki for you.

    Thank you very much Bashing-om for your continued interest in NewDocs - how you manage to do so is admirable, considering the extent of your forums input.

    With kind regards,
    BlinkinCat -

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    Hi all,

    I came across two new Pages for NewDocs that should be listed now rather that waiting for the end of the month.

    The first Ubuntu App Developer is listed on page A as well as on page U. The second, Community is listed on

    page C. I consider both of these pages are well worth exploring.

    The running total of Documentation Pages on the AlterationsToNewDocs Page has now been updated to 1,031 Pages.

    The number of Links listed on the Links page remains unchanged on 71.

    Cheers

    BlinkinCat that is an excellent idea. This is a plus for quicker navigation. I know it was a lot of work to add to all those pages. That's where SSI would be handy(!), but you certainly got the job done efficiently.

    Well, perhaps someone with those privileges will step forward. It would be great to have NewDocs listed there, as it is another indexing scheme.

    On another note, would it be possible to link the pages listed on the NewDocs page:

    Alterations to NewDocs
    Interesting Links
    TitleIndex
    WordIndex

    back to the NewDocs page? I think that would be helpful for navigation purposes.

    Also, what do you all think about adding NewDocs to the SiteNavigation page?
    Hi, Buntu Bunny.

    Sorry for my late reply, but I just returned from a necessary and well-deserved vacation.

    Regarding your suggestions, I do agree with the existence of a "Return to NewDocs" link in each of the 24 alphabetical pages, and I'm glad you pointed out that need, because and as you say if you navigate directly to a specific link, from a search engine or from elsewhere, the browser's go back button would just return to it's origin place, not to the NewDocs face-page.

    As for the linking of those pages, back to the NewDocs page, I agree with BlinkinCat's post #98 and IMO it should be left as it is.

    I also strongly agree with the insertion in the SiteNavigation page, but as BlinkinCat remarked that page is an ImmutablePage, and I don't know who has permissions to edit it. Maybe someone where on the forum knows who has, and hopefully point us in the right direction to request it,

    Slickymaster, if you are as industrious with the rest of your life as you are with Xubuntu and the Forums, then a vacation was well deserved indeed!

    I looked for a contact on the Community Wiki Help site, and discovered there is a team of wiki administrators. These, apparently, have access to restricted pages. The team Launchpad page is here. Might not one of these be a person to contact about adding NewDocs to SiteNavigation? I would suggest it be either you and/or BlinkinCat, since you both are involved in the wiki as well as NewDocs.

    Alright. Tomorrow (it's almost a half past one in the morning over here) I will contact the Team Wiki Administrators to approach them on a possible insertion of the NewDocs in the SiteNavigation page.

    I like how NewDocs is shaping up. The return link at the end of each alphabetical page does make for a more consistent user experience.
