  • Hi John, just wondered if there were more tapes forthcoming from your collection, and whether you would like a hand in digitising them?

  • Hi John,

    Many thanks indeed for the recent additions of pages for your tapes and related audio. Hope it's not too much to ask you to try and keep the On This Day Calendar pages updated for new date pages you create, so that these show up automatically on the right column of the front page when the day comes around.

    The updating process is explained on the On This Day Calendar Help page. Hope this seems clear.

    Please don't hesitate to ask about any points.

    Merry Christmas!

    • OK, will do. I'm trying to keep in mind all the things that need to be done to keep the wiki consistent.

      One thing I struggled with a little was how to create a redirect (from "The Unitone" to "Ruts", as it happens) - I managed it by mimicking the source code for an existing redirect page, but I'm sure there must be a far more user-friendly way to do it.

      Merry Christmas to you too!

    • Hi John,

      Many thanks for your speedy reply.

      On redirects, yeah, best in this case (as we already have a "Ruts" page) to create a clean new page for "The Unitone" or whatever, then mimic the source code you see on existing redirect pages. As you will have seen, this is pretty straighforward.

      If you're starting an entirely new series of pages (eg, Ruts, The Ruts), do "The Ruts" first, then use "Redirect" in the editing menu to give the page the target name ("Ruts"). A redirect page will then also be left on the original page. Handy for all those "The (whatevers)" names, as site style is to cut the "The" so the list in the Artist category is kept alphabetical.

      Hope this seems reasonably clear.
