HOW TO LOCATE ARTICLE TEXT AND CREATE A NEW WIKI
This forum it to discuss the process of first transferring all of the text from the original document and then the process of editing and updating the text and adding new articles.
Original digitized text can be found at -
https://archive.org/details/Farm1 - The files are large so they will take a while to open on most computers. The text formatting is also not always accurate due to the text recognition software.
I have structured this tool so that the table of contents is the primary menu - each additional article is entered as a sandboxed tool so that they do not show up in the main FarmHack tool menu. The advantage of this over a floating wiki entry is that the sandboxed tools can be linked to associated forums to facilitate discussion about articles.
CREATE NEW TOOL
To start a new article first select "Add Tool" at the top of the Farm Hack page. This option shows up once you are logged in. At the top of the "create a tool" page there is a check box that says "Exclude from the Tools list. This is "sandboxed"." Check this box. Then proceed to create the tool with the title of the article and a short description (often there is an introductory paragraph in the copied text).
The process for adding an article is to first locate the text in the word document available from Archive.org
then copy the text to an editing tool and save the associated figures and pictures so that they can be uploaded to the wiki.
the text can then be pasted and edited into the body area of the sandboxed tool and images uploaded
I think a link at the top of the article back to the main menu is also a good idea.
Other formatting ideas?
ADD LINK TO TABLE OF CONTENTS
A link can then be added to the main menu to the new article
I think that substantive edits to the wiki/tool./article should probably be discussed in the associated forums
MAKE FORUM COMMENTS
A method for commenting and displaying data or information that contradicts or improves on the original text needs to be developed
-Some options might be in-line comments, or new associated articles that are linked to the original article
