Greetings Mark.  I have a couple of questions for you:
 
- I have recently added content to the "Replace" command under How To.  Why is this section not under the general User Guide?


How do you incorporate the bullet points into a Wiki post? I see that you've just done that on my post. I would have done that if I had known how.
- I would like to see us start gathering together all known hidden shell commands, and put them on the Wiki.  Also how to do things like using the Debug feature, etc. These are all things that I see from time to time in the forums, and say to myself "I should try this sometime", but then I forget what it was and where I read it!  So do you already have a list of these commands that we could post and explain how to use? Or should I start a thread on the forum asking for user input?\


Thanks!
Best wishes,
Frank

Frank,
 
Thanks for working on the wiki while I am busy at work. Things will slow down in another week so I should have a bit more time again.


Bullets points come from doing a '*' in the first char of a line. I had to put the * in front of the <nowiki>'''</nowiki> bold markup to get it to work. Also the key for the number lines is to add an '#' in the first char of the line.
The "Replacing a Device" How-To is there for a walkthrough of the process of replacing the device. It's not there for the command description, all the How-Tos are there for walkthrough style of documentation.


For more tips check out the cheatsheet in the [[Help:Contents|Help]] section.
As for a list of hidden commands or telnet commands I don’t have them. Michel has them and may have not shared them yet because they are working on debugging features.

Hello Mark:


Thanks for the tip! After I posted the question to you, I went in and looked at the code that you had used, and it made sense.
I saw what you wrote in the "How To" section, that you had removed the "Replace...with" notes that I had put there. What you wrote made perfectly good sense, except that you said that it had been removed, when it really hadn't...it was still on the article page! So I just removed everything from both the article and discussion pages.


On a related topic:  how do you make the "edit" field "taller" on your computer screen? I can only see about 4 lines at a timeThis makes edits in a large page very difficultIt makes me feel that I'm back in "pre-Windows" days!!  Why does this Wiki interface have to be so archaic??  It's even more cumbersome than forums!
I instead added it to the "User Guide" for the time being.  I did this because the process is confusing due to the two "issues" that I have pointed out to Chris & Michel. The first issue is scheduled to get fixedThe second will be more complexAnd I had already told Michel & Chris that I had posted this to the Wiki.  So they expect it to be there somewhere.


Thanks! Frank
Since we don't have a "Bugzilla" page right now, and since some new users are complaining about how "sparse" the User Guide is, I figured that this should go someplace that it could be easily found as it is important information. So if "How-To" is not appropriate, then the Wiki User Guide is where it should go I guess.


As Michel and Chris impliment the fixes, then the Wiki can be easily updated.


==Frank==
Thanks


Thought you might like your name in the headlines. :-P

To change the editing window click on [[Special:Preferences|my preferences]] up in the top area. Go to the Editing tab, and change the Rows to say 30 and you should be good.
Frank,
Sorry I was accually storing it there to figure out where it would better go. I did not want to loose what you had there.


Also so you are not in pre-Windows days turn on the "Show edit toolbar" so you can be in windows 3.1 days.
Lets create a page that tracks the [[ISY-26 Insteon:Known Issues|Known Issues]] in the [[ISY-26_Insteon:User_Guide#Troubleshooting|Troubleshooting]] section.

Greetings Mark. I have a couple of questions for you:

- I have recently added content to the "Replace" command under How To. Why is this section not under the general User Guide?

- I would like to see us start gathering together all known hidden shell commands, and put them on the Wiki. Also how to do things like using the Debug feature, etc. These are all things that I see from time to time in the forums, and say to myself "I should try this sometime", but then I forget what it was and where I read it! So do you already have a list of these commands that we could post and explain how to use? Or should I start a thread on the forum asking for user input?\

Best wishes, Frank

Frank,

Thanks for working on the wiki while I am busy at work. Things will slow down in another week so I should have a bit more time again.

The "Replacing a Device" How-To is there for a walkthrough of the process of replacing the device. It's not there for the command description, all the How-Tos are there for walkthrough style of documentation.

As for a list of hidden commands or telnet commands I don’t have them. Michel has them and may have not shared them yet because they are working on debugging features.

Hello Mark:

I saw what you wrote in the "How To" section, that you had removed the "Replace...with" notes that I had put there. What you wrote made perfectly good sense, except that you said that it had been removed, when it really hadn't...it was still on the article page! So I just removed everything from both the article and discussion pages.

I instead added it to the "User Guide" for the time being. I did this because the process is confusing due to the two "issues" that I have pointed out to Chris & Michel. The first issue is scheduled to get fixed. The second will be more complex. And I had already told Michel & Chris that I had posted this to the Wiki. So they expect it to be there somewhere.

Since we don't have a "Bugzilla" page right now, and since some new users are complaining about how "sparse" the User Guide is, I figured that this should go someplace that it could be easily found as it is important information. So if "How-To" is not appropriate, then the Wiki User Guide is where it should go I guess.

As Michel and Chris impliment the fixes, then the Wiki can be easily updated.

Thanks

Frank, Sorry I was accually storing it there to figure out where it would better go. I did not want to loose what you had there.

Lets create a page that tracks the Known Issues in the Troubleshooting section.
