Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

For all of those who would like putting their config into Wiki but don't know how do it or how edit Wiki, there's a little "How-to", you explaining the way !

The newness, there's now a formal model to help you editing Wiki without any issue. There's an example with HCL 10.7.5 page :

So, what's hidden under this model ? If we edit it, we can see this :

 

==Motherboards==


=== Abit ===
{| class="wikitable" width=100%
!Hardware Name
!Chipset
!Notes
!Patches Used
!colspan=2| 32/64bit working with patches
|-
|}



:ihw_wow: , what's that ? Don't be afraid, it's much easier to understand than it looks ! :)
noexp


 

==Motherboards== -----------> main title (we put it btw two "=")


=== Abit === -------------------------> second title (we put it btw three "=")
{| class="wikitable" width=100% -------------> table propriety
!Hardware Name -----------------> your motherboard name
!Chipset ------------> your motherboard chipset name
!Notes --------------> here you can tell more about your material or the "How to" tuto you used
!Patches Used -------------------> it can be a modified kext or binary patching, or something else
!colspan=2| 32/64bit working with patches ----------------> tell if your motherboard works fine in 32-bits or 64-bits mode
|- --------------> the end of your motherboard description table
|} -----------> the end of the second title table



Ok, it's done but how put our hardware config description into this table ? :hammer:

It's pretty simple !

As a reminder, here's what we have with the first part of the code :

 

==Motherboards==


=== Abit ===
{| class="wikitable" width=100%
!Hardware Name
!Chipset
!Notes
!Patches Used
!colspan=2| 32/64bit working with patches
|-
|}



Result :

And now if we add our hardware config description like that :

 

==Motherboards==


=== Abit ===
{| class="wikitable" width=100%
!Hardware Name
!Chipset
!Notes
!Patches Used
!colspan=2| 32/64bit working with patches
|-
|IX48-GT3
|Intel X48
|Install Using '''iPoco''' tutorial
|Chameleon 2.0 RC5
|{{Y}}
|{{Y}}
|-

|}



Result :

So what you say, it's so hard? :king:


And like i said it above (again), pls you should follow the formal model to edit Wiki and put your hardware config description !

Another thing, you known our positon about tonymac so don't provide support for tonymac tools into your descriptions and much less put a direct link to its website. If this well doesn't respected, in default whereof, your editing will be deleted!

For all those who don't yet know our position about tonymac, thank you for reading this and this.

 

* when you edit 10.8.x HCL pages, pls don't put Yes into 32-bits working, OS X Mountain Lion is only 64-bits compiled system !



hoping that this will help you ! ;)


Cordially

you need just to fill the empty squares (in blue). ;)

 

of course, the number of columns depends on your configuration!

Could we have an official word on links to distros in the wiki? I spotted a couple, and wanted to check if our wiki rules were the same as those we have for the forums before editing them out.

The same rules that apply on the forum apply on the wiki too. Most aren't applicable, but we do not allow direct links to copyrighted material.
