Forum help would be good
for someone new to forums, a small help section on Qt dev net forum would be good
Where ever needed, help doc is created for e.g. : "What is tag":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/whatistags or "Points and Rank":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/ranks
Also there is a "DevNet Help forum":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewforum/4/
Still if some help is lacking please point to us so we can improve it.
for starters just a set of FAQ on using the forum would be good, (the list of questions already asked by users).. that will be a good starting point. At times I've had to try a few things before i figured out how to do something. e.g. how to get a special character in my post, or how to add code in your post. You'll also see so many folks posting without formatted code or without creating a link out of URLs ... things like that.
Up until now I didn't think that we would actually need something like this. I am happy to be corrected though.
I put it on my list of things to do. Maybe we can make it a joint effort by making it a wiki page?
sure, is there a wiki page already or shall i create one and then take it from there ?
I haven't gotten around to it yet - I am still stuck in post-holidays chaos. Would be great if you started it and shared the link here.
ah there is something already, will add more when i get a chance ...
may not be pertinent here, but
@chetankjain, in the above link, the example code block has this statement -
return app.exec& #40;& #41;;
can that be amended. :)
@ashwin, yes that is now fixed, anyone could edit wiki entries by using the link on the right
The Wiki help page is supposed to - guess what - help with the wiki. :-P
I'd personally prefer to have a separate page for the forum help. I started one "here":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/ForumHelp that we can fledge out as we go along.
Thanks for your help!
u r right alexandra ... :P ... i was sleeping i guess when i scanned that. thanks for the new link :)
