Useful FON links

Links on the pages below will take you out of the wikiFON and to the FON web site

Site Development

  • Navigation aids
  • Templates - special wiki feature. Can be used to create a box of links to related subjects.
    • Template_examples a place to see examples and copy code
    • Template guide for techies
    • Stories page has an example on the right
    • Templates can also be used to present standard information with the use of variables. For example, imagine a FON group is similar to a State, then there would be a block with the State Flag, date entered into the union, size, picture of state, population and other standard information. There would be 1 template for 50 states.
  • Categories - these are links to special pages, the links appear at bottom of the page. The special page creates an alpha list of every page which contains a link to the special page. It is possible to place more than one catagory link on a single page. For example the Story category is here.
  • Footers - areas of a page that can be formatted differently across the FONwiki
  • Roles - permission levels
    • Administrator(s) aka site administrator or super-user, (admin)
    • Contribution editor(s), ability to do a bit more than a contributor,
    • Contributors, must have username and password assigned by admin.
