Issues πŸ”—

Contributing πŸ”—

Contributing is easy!
Menu’s and Table of Content’s are generated automatically

There are three ways,

  • Using a front-end editor (similar to WordPress)
  • Directly editing on GitHub
  • Cloning the repo and making pull requests

Editing πŸ”—

Front End πŸ”—

Go to /contribute and login with GitHub.
Note: be sure to set the status to In Review after saving. This causes a change request to be made.

Direct GitHub Edit πŸ”—

Edit Icon

At the bottom of every page you can click on the edit icon to edit that page
This will bring you to the source file on GitHub and you can make your changes there.

Clone Repo πŸ”—

You will need:

  • Hugo Extended 0.70.0 - link
  • Git

Clone the repo and its submodules, then start the hugo server.

git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/ledstrain/wiki.ledstrain.org
cd wiki.ledstrain.org
hugo serve -wD

Linking πŸ”—

This site has smart internal linking.
For example, tests#dithering will link to /docs/appendix/tests#dithering

Sometimes, the directory structure will change to better reflect the content it holds.
As long as linking uses the format of pagename#section internal urls will always work!

Additionally, internal linking is tested, to prevent urls from becoming broken if structure is changed.

How to format content πŸ”—

For a introductory guide, see here
Advanced formatting

Additionally, this site supports shortcodes.

Shortcodes πŸ”—

Forum Post Embed πŸ”—

Posts on LEDStrain Forum can be embedded. Posts are cached, so changes to the original will be updated over time.
Either format can be used to identify which post:

  • Post ID: 11714
  • Permalink: https://ledstrain.org/d/795-community-wiki/1

Length can be specififed to truncate content. 300 is the default.
length of -1 will show the entire post, regardless of length.

A domain can be specified, which can allow embedding content from other flarum based forums. This is primarily useful with using Post ID.

Positional arguments can be used, but cannot be combined with labeled arguments
For example, this will work: {{< forum-post 11714 >}}
This will not: {{< forum-post 11714 length=300 >}}
Instead, use this: {{< forum-post id=11714 length=300 >}}
{{< forum-post 11714  >}}  
{{< forum-post id=11714 domain="https://ledstrain.org" length="300"  >}}  
{{< forum-post id=11714 length="-1"  >}}  
{{< forum-post "https://ledstrain.org/d/795-community-wiki/1"  >}}
