Purchasing a licence
I suggest that answers to some of the common questions be posted in their own threads that have specific keywords in their titles (I assume the search function includes title in the search fields).
For example Alex (and others) could post answers in their own thread in the form howto: blah blah blah. or code sample: ...
Just a suggestion.
My company took the risk with the documentation problem and it is now up to me to at least document all my solutions findings. But this is still better than not having this great library for our online reporting system.
...and of course more examples would be a great help!
1) reading through every contribution so far (it took a while);
2) regularly checking new entries in case they have relevance; and
3) where I've been totally stumped, posting a few questions of my own (which Alex or someone else has answered promptly).
The grid already does everything I need (so I'm not hanging out for any updates or new versions). And, for me, having to rely on the forum to learn the grid's secrets is a small price to pay for the benefits of having the grid in the first place.
1. Merge documentation pages and forum - (done) see this as an example:
I will group existing forum threads together under related documentation page. If someone starts new forum thread as a comment to documentation page - the thread stays attached to this page.
2. Make documentation pages editable (done, see 'edit this page' link top right). I would very much appreciate any help in writing docs, so anyone who can add a few lines, please do it.
3. Install better site search script - what would you recommend (php/mysql)?
4. And actually write missing docs - I don't promise this magically happen overnight, but I will spend more time on this in the next 3-4 weeks.
Re better site search. I don't know how you are doing your search now but I do a lot with MySQL keyword indexing. Works very nice and returns a match quality value that allows you to sort by relevance.
The keyword indexing did not work well until MySQL 4.0.12 or so. If you need, let me know and I can share some code. (ken dot gregg at rwre dot com)
I also just found some php Bayesian filter code that could help automate the classification of forum threads. Have not had a chance to play with it yet but it looks interesting.
Check out mnogosearch for a site search, those dudes rock.
