Wazoo Posted October 12, 2005 Share Posted October 12, 2005 Although I've been told that I have "complete" access to the Forum sever, it really doesn't work like that <g> It's taken me all afternoon, part of the evening to get this Modification installed, and I see that there us still a bit of work on the 'skin' ... at present, only I can add stuff to it, which is another time and effort thing ... Here's where it's at .... The Forum version of the SpamCop FAQ started with snagging the data from the www.spamcop.net click and chase the links version, converting that to a single-page access version. Time matched on, I and the Moderators went with adding in additional entries wherever we found the data, sometimes stolen from traffic elsewhere, sometimes created by an issue, sometimes the input came from other users, on and on .... Historically, the www.spamcop.net FAQ has always been under fire for being hard to navigate, incomplete, always behind ...(just a few of the complaints) ... the attempt at the single-page access point version here is self-described as a quick hack in lieu of something else .... well, here's a shot at that something else .... It's going to take a while to populate it for a number of reasons (beyond that it's onlly allowing Admin access to create entries at this point); E-mail Account entries for example .... current Forum version of the SpamCop FAQ is primarily the 'first-level of the www.spamcop.net FAQ ... and those entries mostly contain links to web pages actually done up by JT ... so am sittng here wondering why I'd need to follow that flow ... so I've been entering in the query, then entering in a copy of the web-page contents directly ... the catch is that the formatting has to be changed to look OK here .... none of the items posted thus far come close to a cut/paste operation .... Although this thing offers a multitude of options on "sorting" entered items, not yet sure how to end up with a 'good' entry list .... the www.spamcop.net was comlained about as one had to know what one was actually looking for to guess which link to click on next .... the Forum version was complained about because it wasn't sorted or organized (?) (Dang, I tried <g>) .... So things will probably change as this gets played with, maybe something as silly as numbering entries ...???? Anyway, many things yet to do, but .... before I spend yet another eternity on trying to get it populated, any one care to jump in yet again with something better than "it sucks" ...????
