in thread A Lost Monk's Rogation

I am a member of SDC, so I just assumed it worked as it did back in the day when I last edited the old FAQ section (probably 2 or 3 years ago). That is, I expected nodes I could edit to look like a regular editable node.

Thanks for the updated information. For what it's worth, I don't even have the SiteDocClan nodelet turned on, nor have I ever heard that there *is* a wiki for SDC, that's how long it's been.

    Well, just to explain a little: the nodes you are thinking of are sitefaqlets which you can edit directly. However there was a need to provide a way for SDC to be able to update the text that would be displayed in superdocs so the sitedoclet was invented for that purpose. Basically its a special type of template that PMDEV can set up for superdocs so that SDC can manage the text without require patches to be applied. Since the FAQ for the RAT needs to be able to output HTML that would normally be scrubbed it has to be a superdoc, but I wanted SDC to be able to edit it so the main content is in a sitedoclet.

    Anyway, welcome back. :-)

[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
[Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
