Node Creation Functions
Caution: The following links, if clicked, will create a new node! Click only if you mean to create one! If you need one, check Master FaqList faqlist for an unused one first. Unused items usually have "available" in the title. If there is one, use that rather than create a new one. Conversely, if you do create one that you end up not needing, give it a title like available_faqlet.
- Create a new faqlist
- Create a new faqstring
- Create a new faqlet
- Create a new alpha faqlet
- Create a new sitedoclet (SiteDocClan/PMDev hybrid monks only, please!)
Nodes can be converted between the three types created here (i.e., between sitefaqlet, alphafaqlet, and sitedoclet). To do so, be viewing the node you want to convert, then look in the SiteDocClan Nodelet for the conversion links. Create:
Special considerations for sitedoclets:
- The title of the new sitedoclet node must be identical to the title of the superdoc it is for, plus the word 'sitedoclet' appended. For example, Quests sitedoclet is the sitedoclet for the Quests page.
- Once you've finished the sitedoclet, you may /msg pmdev, or leave a note in the Cabalists' Wiki, requesting that the superdoc be patched to use the sitedoclet.
PerlMonks Documentation Style Guide
- Documents should be written so as not to depend too much on their context.
- At the bottom of each faqlet, insert:
<hr/><i>Back to the [PerlMonks FAQ]</i>.
- Documents should have a heading consisting of the node's title inside <h1> tags.
- Links to other nodes should generally be by node ID, rather than by name.
- PerlMonks is spelled "PerlMonks", not "Perl Monks" or "perlmonks" or "Perl monks".
- Perl Monks are people (plural), PerlMonks is the site (singular).
- In external references, don't just say "For more info, see X," say "For more on how to foobar your frobnicator without comblastion, see X."
- Avoid abbreviations.
- Link to other faqlets and docs generously. Link to word and acronym definitions and Perl docs whenever possible.
Note that these are merely guidelines; they are not gospel. Feel free to debate them in the SDC Wiki. :-)
