Update shortcut link to SSCCE

by 1nickt (Prior)
on Jun 16, 2017 at 16:12 UTC ( #1192956=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The current link from SSCCE points to node # 1177743, which is a page containing only one thing: a link to node # 1177642 -- the page that actually describes what an SSCCE is. The handy syntax link is great, but could it be updated to point directly to the page? I don't really see the point of the intermediary page, and I fear that some newbs who click to it won't manage to click through to the real doc. Studies about page depth and retention show ... , etc. and the link doesn't exactly stand out.

Can we do away with the intermediary page and update the link?


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Nodes of category FAQstring do more than just forwarding.

    They contain a short answer to the Q, see SoPW for instance.

    If you want to expand this FAQ you can surely message /msg [sitedocclan] with an appropriate text.
