Patapage

Understanding Patapage – the works

with 2 comments

We are currently working in several directions to make Patapage easier to understand, use and map to your web site building needs.

1. Work on the user interface: it is getting simpler and more complete

2. Writing a introduction + user guide document. On Pietro’s blog a new post about understanding the ways Patapage can be used, taking the case of community support:

Patapage is indeed a tool that can drastically reduce the effort needed to build services for supporting a web site’s community – it does more than that, but it is for sure a core point.

  1. I found your site very interesting; I found it after looking at the site about mb.extruder. One thing I wonder about is if my users will know which tabs to click to get more info.

    My club site is in bad need of a redesign and I love the idea of being able to hide large sections, but still have the info on the home page. This is a radio club which has young and old members, the older ones need larger fonts and might not understand your layout of tabs which is a worry. I also need to put Sponsors on our home page, but tucking them inside a tabbed area could be a good solution. I was at first working with Project Seven’s Glide Panel, but I worry if JS is not enabled the data won’t be seen. This might be the same problem with your site. True?

    I feel stupid, but I don’t understand RSS. How do I get people to view info via RSS? I don’t expect you to teach me, but a general guide or recommended place to look would be awesome.

    Keep up with the good work and I hope to incorporate your tabs/windows in my redesign. Ah, I just looked over at the right on your site and saw, “The many ways of RSS integration.” I will look there to start on my journey of understanding just what I have to do to get that going on my sites.

    Thanks and best of luck, Nancy

  2. Thank you for your feedback. The tabs provided are just an example, you can fully customize them. I am writing a user guide which will answer all your questions in detail.

    For the JavaScript enabled question, you can see here some statistics: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

    Current browsers are more and more JavaScript engines at their core, so not having JavaScript enabled makes surfing really problematic.

    Thanks!
