Look and feel

The look and feel of the new mediawiki isn't as good as the Plone version. Particularly, the Scotland opening page was much more user friendly with links to record types and other helpful information. Now it is kind of a mess. What happened to the good content?

Security messages

It is very annoying that every new page is met with message "Security - entering secure and non secure site ..." requiring to indicate okay each time. Can you have this happen only one time, then ok after that with out re-entering?

I have not had this experience. Is it still happening for you? What page has it happened on? I'll try it and see if I can duplicate the problem. Are the new pages new ones you are trying to create?

Another reply to "security messages"

The security popup you're seeing happens because A) we're on a secure server, as indicated by our https:// URL (s is for secure). The second reason is that your browser's Security Settings are set to warn you when you go to a secure server. I believe we have plans to switch servers, which will stop these messages from appearing on your screen Ritcheymt 10:50, 20 February 2008 (MST)

Navigation up and down

Can some way be found for navigating up and down the pages  i.e. like getting back to  England from Lancashire.  Perhaps a category system like Wikipedia?  It seems clumsy to have to go back to the  Main Page then navigate down when you really only want to go back up one level.  Mbriscoe 11:45, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

There is a way to do this, and there is an article off the main page on how to categorize articles.  You can also have multiple categories for an article too. There is also a list of categories already created that you can look through to find those that fit an article, or, if for some reason the listed categories don't fit (this site is new so that is possible), then by all means create the category needed.  JamesAnderson 12:06, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
