Content types

Introduction

Not all pages on this site look exactly the same nor behave exactly the same way. There are several types of pages, called content types, that we use for different purposes:

  • Some content types are personal, and can only be edited by their author.
  • Other content types are collective, and can be edited by any member of the community.

How to get started with my Personal Book?

See this article first:

Some trusted members have the opportunity to post Personal book pages. Such pages carry the author information, but are not dated. The system will assume that the content of those pages will remain relevant forever, and represent the best thoughts that a person has on the topic addressed within the page.

How to make massive changes to my book?

Making massive changes

The short answer is: "Don't. Ask first!" The reason is simple: there is often an easier way to achieve your purpose. Also, massive changes to any content may have unintended consequences.

Changing the outline

If you want to change the outline of your Personal Book, moving one page from one place to another, do not attempt to delete the page to recreate it in the new place. It won't work. Check the following page, and ask for help:

Users' Personal Books

I like a lot what Fred has done with his own personal book:
http://en.minguo.info/fred_gohlke
I would like to extend the concept to all trusted users.

I will make incremental changes so that each regular member can have its own personal book.
The personal books are single-author: each member can have its own.
The personal books are not dated: they can be updated by their author at any time to represent the best that it has to offer.
The personal books are not the place for discussion. Use blog entries for that.
