Regarding the Howto web, what do you think if we put all topics into Main? The Main web is for users and documentation, so it would fit there. What are your ideas to put it in a separate web?

I think that the page you envisioned in ImproveDocsForFirstTimeUsers
is definitely necessary, and for now
it should go into the Main web. BUT SEE RenameTheMainWeb
The Howto web I described (which is not as far along as I thought) sigh
is being set up as a very complete reference for TWiki, and the doc you requested in ImproveDocs...
is part of it; but after reading your comments I realized it should go (for now) in the Main web. The Howto web, when finished, will provided an in-depth ``reference manual'' for TWiki, with FAQ and Tutorial sections. It will be a place to go to get the gory details. The level of detail, plus the strongly related topics, plus a web-specific navigation-link system, all argue for a separate web for Howto.
(By the way, the Howto web got started because a couple of TWiki power users
at one of my sites wanted a lot of answers but couldn't
grovel the code
to get those answers. The Howto is being modified to be more generic and less site specific. It got its name from the following conversation:
|user||So the Main web doesn't really have much of our content in it?|
|Kevin||No, it's mostly for documentation and explanation, |
MOTD's and stuff like that. Our content is in the mumble web.
|user||That's dumb! Why didn't they call it the ``Howto'' web, or something.)|
