i see very few of you linking to the wiki. Perhaps you don't consider it detailed enough, or somehow its not adequate to help the users. i was hoping that adding pages would have been useful for you when helping those who have questions. The wiki TOC now pretty much covers most aspects of L4.
Just a little puzzled here

mea culpa - I usually mention the wiki but am too lazy to look up the actual link ... but I already did this morning. I think you are right - fishing pole vs. fish type of thing. We should do more sending them to help or the wiki.

Ditto to MJ's mea culpa. Same reason, same lazy streak. Same woeful look of misery while I shuffle my feet in embarrassment.

I try to link to the wiki when I think about it but sometimes I'm in the mode of just getting an answer to the specific question that I forget the wiki has a much more detailed explanation. I need to figure how to link to a subsection of a wiki page too...
How to ask for Help
Not looking for recognition here. Wondering if i am using the time God has given me usefully. The window of time that these hours of work on wiki pages will be useful is only a couple of years at best. i have learned this from past work experience in the real world, a product becomes obsolete in a short time.
Also not trying to lay a guilt trip on any of you. i am just the little toe trying to help the Hand.

there are 3 ways that come to mind

I tend not to use the Wiki much because the stuff for Mac is still being developed and stuff that was relevant even a week or so ago can be out of date. Probably once Logos 4 Mac is RC and Wiki for Mac starts to grow I'll refer to it more.

LOL Steve you're awesome! Thanks for the tutorial. Perhaps you should put that on the wiki .
Find the subtopic in a wiki page (usually at the top of the wiki page where contents links are shown)Right click on the link. Then in the pop-up menu select Copy Link Location.
In the post message editor, select the word(s) that you want a link to be added to.
Click on the Link button in the editor window's toolbar
In the pop-up window, paste the link (right click in Link URL box and select paste)
Press the Insert button.
Arrggh! I taught myself to use the HTML editor.

Steve, I do try to point folks to the wiki. In fact on the blog article posted today I think Dan could have mentioned the wiki as another place to look for support. However I will say the wiki is unwieldy. There is no regular naming format for wiki articles and it it 'littered' with Bug reports and with articles that the content has been deleted from but the empty article still exists. Even when I know an article exists in the wiki I sometimes have trouble finding it. (Your work on the TOC has been a help).
Perhaps Logos needs to ask someone to be the wiki chief architect and give that person authority to clean up the organization of the wiki, remove dead articles, etc.
You've done a good job with your content. I think the wiki can save a lot of time in helping people.

Yes, Steve, your efforts are appreciated and the wiki is probably used more than you think!
Steve thanks for the comprehensive answer to Kevin's question, I was just wondering about that yesterday. And thanks for your contributions to the Wiki
