Hi, Scott:

I just peeked at your test page. What an difference! Wondering: instead of time-delimited tasks (half-hour, half-day) can we denote size, something like small, medium, and large?

Thanks much for this improvement in the experience.

Fro & Paul,

I've been working with these user-definable lists, dropping the Configurable_Query template in the Getting Started page to display lists of articles for given tasks. You can see where I'm going with this at http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/User:Scottrowe/test.

In order to use the Customized_Lists_Form_Header template, I'd like to be able to set the heading level - h2, h3, h4, etc., heading text, and have a free text field. So all the canned text, "Decide what is displayed... You can add your own..." would then be configurable and editable.

That way I could include all the Getting Started preamble in the form header. Since I can't drop the _Form_Header in the Getting Started page without it floating to top of the page automatically, I need a way to incorporate the text into the form.

In the Configurable_Query template, I'd like to make the heading level configurable too, and I'd like to have a free text field under the heading so I can describe the list of results and provide links to the Editor's Guide for how to do various edits.

Can you include these tidbits?

Also, a small boog: when I click on More results in a list, the list opens in a new page with three columns - adding a Page# column. Can you remove that column?

Great work here, dudes!
+Scott

Thanks Doug, I appreciate your enthusiasm!

And we should be judicious of our time and resources. If time futzing around with priorities would be just as well spent working on the issues, then it's not worth doing. Furthermore, it's all got to be done sooner or later. I think people will be capable of picking the more important issues out of a list without having guidance in the form of "P0" or "P1" or whatever.

In other news, I've created the new High-level issue property, "Needs Review." (Hoo boy, did it take forever to figure out the property page name for this!) So now, once an article is de-flagged or created, the editor can set the "Needs Review" flag, and the issue will get listed under "Articles Needing Review" in the Getting Started page.

I've also made a copy of the Getting Started page in my User: directory and have begun tinkering with redesign.

See you all in the conf call!

If you insist....

In my book, laziness is the mother of invention, and I've managed to
eliminate or at least streamline a lot of manual processes over the
years.

I look forward to at least trying.
