But... I have a stupid question... how do I submit a summary for it? The box at the bottom of the page has a pop up that says [alt-shift-b], which probably clears everything up for most people, but I can't figure it out. I tried hitting those three keys simultaneously before putting in my text, after putting in text, and while highlighting the text, but nothing happened. :/
Ah, I think I see what you mean. The box at the bottom is the summary that appears in the page history; generally, you use it to describe what changes you made, so someone skimming the page history doesn't have to manually check all the revisions to find something. If you want a lead paragraph at the beginning of the page, you just write a lead paragraph at the beginning of the page.
BTW, it all looks nice but the default forum header now seems to take up a lot more room (and has the same links as the skinny header at the top). No problem for me - I just used my adblocker to remove it - but I'm not sure what some others' opinions are.
to be obtrusive, ironically. Going to http://www.homeschooldebate.com
just drops you into the forums; new users aren't likely to even notice the small links on the header bar, so they wouldn't immediately realize that HSD has a wiki. (Which would be confusing to people who came here because they heard there was a resource wiki.)
I've learned the hard way over years of web design that people are unbelievably
unobservant. You can literally put a large red flashing link in the middle of the page and somebody
will call you up and ask, "Where's the link? I can't find it." Hence the rather attention-drawing secondary box.
I do think the current "basic box" design is kind of ugly, however, so design suggestions are welcome.
