Information about the software powering this site

This site is using the PmWiki software. You can find documentation for it on the linked site.

Why PmWiki?

Because it works. Really, there isn't any special reason and I've most likely chosen it, because it is very powerful, feature-rich, fast and lightweight. I've been using MediaWiki before but found it a bit too heavy and loaded with features I'll probably never need. Otherwise, it's a good piece of software, of course :)

What about copyrights, legal stuff?

Like any other content created by an individual, it is of course copyrighted stuff. However, the content you can find on this site is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, which basically means, you can use, copy, modify and redistribute the content as long as you comply with the Terms of the license.

Conventions used on this site

To make reading a bit easier, all pages should use a unified layout. Additionally, templates are available to highlight important parts of text in several different ways.

  • Important notes. This markup is used to indicate important instructions or things which should be read and followed with extra care.

This is how an important note looks like.

  • A hint. This markup indicates a useful hint. Often used to show how things can be done faster and/or easier.

This is how a hint looks like.

  • A check item. This markup is used to indicate checklist-type entries. Make sure to follow the steps in order to achieve the desired results.

This is how a checklist type entry looks like. It explains in a step-by-step way how to achieve a certain result

These markup types are implemented by templates. Each template takes exactly three arguments, beginning with the text which should appear in the box. The second argument specifies the left indentation while the third argument will determine the indentation of the right margin. Values must be given in CSS syntax. Example: 1.0em or 20px.

Notes about work in progress on pages

Work in progress

This article should be considered work in progress. It is not complete and undergoing frequent changes.

If you see the above note on top of a page, it means that this article is not yet finished. The article should be seen as a draft and will possibly undergo heavy changes in the future.

Can I edit the pages?

Anonymous editing is not allowed on this site, because fighting spammers and vandals is too time-consuming for a "one man show". This may change when I finally find an effective automated spam protection method, but so far, none was able to keep them away. If you would like to contribute to the EoS documentation, I could give you a username / password and editing privileges. If you want, use the contact form to drop me a line.

How to find recent changes?

Click the link Site Changes on top of the page. It will show you a list of recently added or modified pages.

Are there any RSS feeds?

Yes, there are in several formats. See at the top right of the page header.

Do I have to register?

There is no way to register. Only administrators can set up new user accounts and assign privileges. See above.

What about the talk pages, there aren't any

Right now, there are no talk or discussion pages. I may add such a feature in the future. Some articles may have links to discussion threads in the Forum.

I have suggestions, complaints, whatever, how can I tell you?

Use the Contact Form.

Use of JavaScript and cookies

Some features, like the image overlays (lightbox-like) and the syntax highlighter are using JavaScript. Cookies are only needed when you have created an account and are logged in. The cookie will store your session ID then, but nothing else.
